First Signs of Snow while Fourbying

 Fall on one side, winter on the other
 Blue Skies
 Fog is rolling in
 A light dusting of snow
 Mother nature couldn't make up her mind today ;)

 Chute Lake

 Such a cool contrast, shadow on one side, sun on the other

 (trying to find rocks to skip)

 Sunlight peaking through the trees
 Elenor Lake is already starting to freeze over
Low lying clouds

Crafty Idea - Leaf Jar

 Here's another quick fall craft I enjoyed putting together.  I went outside,  collected some freshly fallen leaves to put inside my mason jar, and added a few crafty embellishments. That's it!  I think I'm going to make another one with acorns, I just have to find enough acorns first. They are harder to find, so wish me luck :)

The Beauty of Fall

Even though BC is less colourful than Ontatrio at this time of year, I still find so many oppurtunites to capture the vibrant colours of fall!  Also, I have an obssesion with leaves.....  Especially random ones that have fallen somewhere cool.  Let me just say I am extremely thankful that we have a maple tree on our property :)

Autumn Wreath (and some thoughts on crafting)

It's funny how I can go all summer without making a single craft but as soon as fall hits I am flooded with so much crafting inspiration I couldn't even try and ignore it (nor would I want to).  Fall is my favourite season and seems to kick off a wonderful series of holidays that provide many opportunities to get creative.

This wreath was a very quick project, so easy and satisfying. It basically just involved cutting out leaf shapes by hand and hot gluing them to my vine wreath. I bought a fall themed book of scrapbook paper and I just have to flip through it and suddenly I have another idea.  (more coming soon)
