Happy Friday everyone. I’m starting a new column on my blog called Friday High Five. These are just snippets of what I’ve been up to, inspirational ideas or anything that we can “high five” over. Woot. Most of these will just be shot with my phone as I muddle through the week. Have a great weekend. I’ll see you back here next week. Enjoy the first edition of Friday: High Five.

Friday High Five - Pressed leaves via homework (2)I gathered these leaves on my recent trip to Washington. I’m sure my co-workers thought this Cali girl was crazy picking up leaves in the office parking lot. I put them in a baggie and packed them in my suitcase. They made it back in one piece and I was able to press them. Upcoming project with the leaves and this pretty grey felt.

Friday High Five - Microwave Cart space saver via homework (3)Last weekend I bought and assembled a cheap microwave cart from Target. I have a long narrow kitchen and even though it’s not ideal, putting the microwave in this unused space gave me tons more counter space and cupboard space. In the first picture my Sammy got tired and bored with the assembly. Oh and those darn giant wheels didn’t fit and I have to return them. I hate returning things.

Friday High Five - Fall Chalkboard via homework (4)
I updated my kitchen chalkboard with a fall greeting. I won’t win any prizes for my lettering and leaf drawing for this one but it was a quick redo since my summer message seemed a little silly halfway through October.

Friday High Five - Gigi the squierrel via homework (1)I have a confession. I’m a crazy squirrel lady. I’ve been putting food out for the squirrels and one is so tame she’ll eat from my hand. She now has me trained and she appears at my office window (see scary photo on left) to let me know she’s hungry. The squirrel feeder is at the very back of the yard. It’s basically a large terracotta pot with the saucer on top.Their favorites are the black sunflower seeds but they also like grapes and that orange blob is cantaloupe seed. Yup, crazy squirrel lady.

Friday High Five - Inspirational Business Cards via homework (6)These are the backs or is it the front of some business cards from the PR Agency I work with for my day job. I love the inspirational message.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
