Save the Dates: Fall Link Parties!

August 13th, 2011

Well well, we’ve done it again!  This fall season, I’m partnering up with three of my very favorite ladies like we’ve done in the past.  The four of us are bringing you some fun fun fun this autumn.  Yes indeedy, it’s time for another round of link parties for fall!  

We’re asking you to save the dates and we do hope you will get your seasonal DIY on to mix and mingle at these upcoming parties!

As you can see Ms. Layla will be showcasing mantels and Ms. Rhoda is handling door décor in the last week of September.  That following week (the first week of October) I’m hosting fall crafts and later that week Ms. Sarah will rock the outdoor projects. 

I loooove to get my craft on when it comes to the holidays, especially in the fall.  Here are a few favorites from the archives that were so much fun to make!

1. Shimmery Magnolia Leaves Wreath; 2. Fall Leaves on Canvas, 3.  Gilded Porch Pumpkin Topiaries,  4. Rub n’ Buff Posh Pumpkins 5. Autumn Leaves Windcatcher 6. Halloween Boo Game Printable & Prize Bags

Time to start hatching a plan ~ it’s going to be another glorious season of fall creativity!  If you’re in search of inspiration, hop onto Pinterest, there’s always much to be found over there.  Also I’ve added a whole bunch of links to my Autumn Ideas board so take a peek there too. 

Start thinking about what you’ll create, we hope you’ll join in the fun!
