It's November!!


           Well, hey everyone!! It's officially Autumn!! Oh, how I love Autumn...it's just so beautiful...the leaves and the flowers and the colors in general are just gorgeous!! In fact, today I have a special autumn craft/project for you to do and it's so pretty, the best part being that you don't have to buy anything!! Here's what you do...when you're outside, just start gathering up pretty leaves and ones that catch your eye. When you get home, you can either press them (i.e., put them in between books) or you can put them on some sort of heating device (I put mine on top of a heater) and then you can leave them there for a day or so and then you're done!! I took some pictures of how mine turned out...this is a picture of the leaves on the heater...

        And a picture of the leaves that got pressed...you can't see them but they're inside the books :D
                                                   and a picture of the final product!!!


                 You'll notice that in the final pictures some of the leaves are flat and some are kind of curled up and stuff. It's fine to do it both ways, it just depends on how you like them, flat or "voluminous". I'm sorry if this idea is a little too late what with leaf season being almost over, (at least where I live) but there are still plenty of pretty leaves around they're just harder to find. Well, I hope you enjoyed that craft!! It's fun, easy, and economical :P One tip, though; be sure to ask your mother where she wants you to put them up as decor. And now to end with a little Saturday randomness;

                           Well, have fun with the leaf craft!! Bye!!

    That leaf project is pretty cool! I've done that before, except I ironed the leaves. (Put the leaf on a piece of cardboard, cover with a scrap piece of material and iron for about 20 sec.)
