::Crossroads of Seasons::

I feel like I’m at a crossroads right now. I don’t want summer to end, but at the same time, I can’t wait for fall to begin. There’s nothing I love better than fall here in New England. The leaves are beautiful, the crisp air and smell of spices.

 

 

How can you not love it here? I had to move away from the North East once, and I don’t think I could do it again. I know people complain about the winter here, but honestly, it could be worse. Having the four seasons like this is perfect for me, and how I want it to always be. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. ;)

 

 

I am so ready for carving pumpkins this year. They’re going to be awesome, like the ones above possibly? Or maybe I’ll do another rendition of my Jack Skellington ones from two years ago, but in white like the ones pictured below?

 

 

What is your favorite jack o’ lantern design? Do you like to do something simple like a monogram, maybe create a crazy design, or do you prefer the more traditional toothy grin? Share your favorite design! :)

Happy Labor Day Weekend! {Anniversary Giveaway}

::Comments are now CLOSED::

Happy Labor Day weekend everyone! This is our last “hoorah” for summer and then its Hello! Fall!! Fall is one of my favorite seasons, mainly because I get to wear really cute boots. ;) But seriously, it really is a great season. You get to feel that crispness in the air, see all the beautiful colors of the changing leaves, and the smell of cinnamon is wonderful! I think what really kicks off the autumn season for me is when I get my first cup of Pumpkin Spice coffee. It is, by far, my favorite coffee flavor and I wish I could drink it all year long. Yumm!!

So I wanted to share with all of you my one year anniversary selling on Etsy. It has been such a wonderful experience and I have learned so much. Over the past year I’ve grown as an individual and I also have met some really wonderful people in this community. I really can not wait to see what the next year will bring.

I wanted to do something special to celebrate my anniversary. It’s been a bumpy road but it’s coming along pretty nicely I think. It has just recently begun picking up for me in the shop and I could not be happier. This all would not have been possible without the encouragement and support from all of you. As a thank you I wanted to do a giveaway to all of my readers.

I have been thinking long and hard about what I wanted to give away, but I could not decide on one particular item as I wanted it to be something everyone would enjoy. So I have decided to give away a $50.00 shop credit to be used on anything in the store!!

So here’s the low down!
