I know that fall doesn't officially start until sometime AFTER Labor Day here in the United States, but in the "Land of Jann," I am SO ready for it to be fall that I am getting a bit of a jump on the season by starting a new series on the blog! (Hey don't judge me...I was in JoAnn's over the weekend and they had CHRISTMAS stuff up!)
I love decorating my house for fall...and have a few projects in mind for that - just a couple of quick things that will freshen up my other decorations...so I will post a tutorial or two as I get those projects done.
For the most part though, the projects that I have planned center around cards, gratitude journals (for myself and perhaps a friend or two...you never know - you might be that friend!) and a few other little things that I want to have ready for some family time at Thanksgiving. I usually try and send Christmas cards to friends and family - but am going to try and actually send Fall/Thanksgiving/Thankful for You cards prior to Thanksgiving this year...so that means I need to move into high gear and stop my wagon from draggin'! LOL! Just typing those last couple of phrases make me smile - as they remind me of family and some of the silliness that we got into as kids...fall just was FUN around my house...so it makes me smile just thinking about the cooler temperatures, a pot of stew or chili on the stove, flannel shirts, football, pumpkins...and all the nummy foods that we only make once summer is over and we are headed into Winter.
So, in case you missed it on YouTube, here is the tutorial for my first project - which was a couple of cards. They are easy to make - and each one is different so you can make lots of them and know that each will still be a unique piece of art to share with a friend or family member.
And I will leave you with a bit of a "sneak peek" at the next project I am working on...
I just smile looking at those fun colors...
Hope you are smiling too...and mostly I hope you will join in the fun of this Fall Project Series! See ya soon!
