Because I love the fall...

I can hardly wait to read all the ideas for The Inspired Room's upcoming Fall Nesting Week. Bloggers from all over can participate and submit their housewarming ideas for the fall. Lots of decorating and baking ideas! I can't think of a better way to transition into the next season. Ahhh....I'm already daydreaming in pumpkin spice and harvest colors.

Aren't these gorgeous?

I found these beautiful water colored leaves on flickr, idea taken from
mayamade designs. If you'd like to make some, follow this link to the tutorial. And I must say, move over Martha! This crafter is serious. You can find tutorials on how to make pillowcase dresses to confetti eggs for the New Year. It is all quite creative, fun, and a lot of it is child oriented!

I also found this cute fall banner on Mayamade that I thought Brooklynn would love to help make. And I know she'd love to see it on the mantle everyday. :) Now that I think of it...a watercolored leaf banner would be beautiful!

I hope your summer is coming to a pleasant end! Enjoy!

Oh those are beautiful! Sounds like a "fall kick off" project to me! Britt and I have been discussing our excitement of the upcoming season too!

LOVE the fall leaves! I'm definitely going to do this with my preschoolers next month! Thanks for the great ideas. I LOVE mayamade too, and I've already bookmarked more preschool art/craft projects from her!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
