calendar // a past psl for a present september

September is a good month for one very important reason: Pumpkin Spice Lattes. It's kind of a staple around here each year, and this September can be no different.

That said, I could probably stand to have a do-over for August. An unexpected blogging break and other things meant that I only created five posts here. And that just bugs me. At least a new month can be a new start of sorts.

Though I only posted five times at Wild Olive, I did manage to write a bunch for the other blogs I work with. Here are a few of those posts:

Felt Art Frame

For Hello Bee, I shared this felt frame to hold your child's artwork. It would also make a great DIY gift for kids to make for grandparents or friends!

Crayon Wrappers

At Handmade Charlotte you can print customized crayon wrappers or give them the wild Olive treatment. Because crayons are better with faces.

Happy Crayons Embroidery Pattern

Speaking of crayons with faces, this free embroidery pattern is available at About.com. Who doesn't want to stitch some dancing crayons!

Easy DIY Pillow

For when you have some embroidery but aren't quite sure what to do with it, why not make a pillow? The sewing on this is SUPER easy!

Tassel Scissor Charm

And finally, also at About.com, you can add some flair to your embroidery scissors with a tassel charm made from embroidery floss.

Oh, and all through August, my Around the House Stitching Club has been stitching along. We're not quite done yet, but you can see what folks have been making. All their progress makes me feel like I'm doing even more than I actually am, so stitching club members deserve a special shout-out for that!

Now, let's officially jump into September! Grab yourself a PSL calendar and perhaps an actual PSL too!

Download the 1920x1280 Wallpaper.

Download the iPhone Wallpaper.
Download the iPad Wallpaper.

For your home screen or for keeping up through the entire PSL season, these have the PSL mugs, but no calendar. Side note, the rows of mugs are absolutely inspired by the rows of dancing beer steins in Be Our Guest from Beauty and the Beast.

Download the iPhone PSL Wallpaper.
Download the iPad PSL Wallpaper.

For iPhone 6+, choose the iPad version. To use the iPhone and iPad versions, click the link for the wallpaper you want. When it opens, touch and hold the image until it pops up with the option to save. After you've saved the image, go to your settings, choose wallpaper, then find the image you've just saved.

You can also download a printable September calendar. Trim it and leave it in black and white, or enjoy a bit of coloring!

All of this talk really has me ready for a grande pumpkin spice latte, skim with whipped (my typical order!).

    I rarely comment, but just wanted to let you know that I was super excited to find (and purchase, of course!) Stitch Love from a physical bookshop here in the UK! It's amazing and I am looking forward to practising my embroidery skills with your fab patterns!
