Falling into the creative season

Did you have a lovely labor day? I certainly hope so. Now that it seems summer is ending I am definitely getting into autumn mode...
Fall wreath on door?
Caramel apple cider making on a ridiculous basis?
Dreaming up orange and leaf inspired crafts?

Something about the cooler weather makes me leap into creativity overdrive. Does it do this to anyone else?
How about using some of that creativity with a little contest...with a super great prize?

There are a couple contests going on at the May Arts blog:
Here all you have to do is comment and/or send in a picture of a recent sewing project with ribbon. Easy Peasy.
Here May Arts GIVES YOU the ribbon you need to create with. Crazy right? So you get to play with their new Halloween Fun Pack, create a project, email a picture and you could win 3 full spools of ribbon --your choice. Or 10 people with get to pick 1 spool...and we are talking about the big spools--like the stores get to sell by the yard!
You could choose this must have-

This is a favorite-

Classic crochet-

Reminds me of a J. Crew belt-

Oh the possibilities! So be sure and check out the May Arts blog. Would love to see some friendly faces enter! And speaking of friendly faces, you might just spy someone you know here ;)


  1. Thanks for the heads up on the May Arts contests! Don't know if I'll have time to create and submit to it, but I'll enjoy the eye candy there, regardless!
    Good to catch up with you today. If only for a few secs!

  2. That is an intriguing contest! Thanks for letting us know about it.

  3. Ooh Lexi! I hadn't even noticed that pretty, sparkly ribbon! Thanks for sharing!

  4. So how do you make your caramel apple cider? That sounds yummy!
