thank you...

... for sharing your favorite traditions with me. they all sound wonderfully autumn-ish! AND... i learned that we do have somewhat of a fall season here in Arizona (thanks julie & erin!). i may have to travel north a bit to find it, but it would be well worth it, i think. :)

and now for the delicious little treat giveaway - the apple goes to (drawn by random.org, which i still haven't figured out how to display on my blog):


omg you're gonna LOVE this apple. it's ridiculicious!! please send me your address so i can get this sucker shipped out to you in time for halloween. hooray!

the new challenge is up at simply ATC! stacey fike has provided some fabulous inspiration for our very last "Alice in Wonderland" prompt. take a look:

i'm hoping i can find some time to squeeze out an ATC for this one. the illustrations & colors are so yummy! go take a look for yourself. the challenge ends November 1st. and then we reveal our brand new theme. i'm super excited about it! :)

that's all for now.
have a wonderful week!



a special OCTOBER giveaway...

... because it's the start of my favorite season. although, i'd like it much better if it actually looked and felt like fall. this is when i really hate living in the freakin' desert. would it be weird if i bought some fake fall -like leaves and just sprinkled them all over my front lawn?

so, every year i order one of these yummy treats from Williams Sonoma:

Halloween Caramel Apple

seriously the most delish caramel apple EVER. and guess what? i want to share! yep... if you leave me a comment telling me what your favorite fall tradtion is, i will enter your name into a drawing and the winner will get to share in the joyous delight of this most delicious treat (don't worry... nuts are optional. ahem). 
so... drop me a line by october 15th. i will draw on the 16th. wheeeeeeeeeee!

have you seen the new fall pottery barn catalog?  i would so love to recreate this in my entryway. *swoon*

i'm hoping to get to "fall-ify" my house in the next few days. i add one new holiday handmade decor item every year. the new one is in progress and i'm crossing my fingers it turns out as cute as it is in my head. i'll be sure to share it if it does. heh. this was last year's project:

(awwww... lookit my little corduroy punkins. i LOVE those suckers!)
