Winner of the Giveaway!

17 Oct

We have had such a beautiful Fall this year.  I know that snow is just around the corner, so we have been taking advantage of the weather while we can!

We brought some leaves back with us to make this super easy craft using colours and textures from our neighbourhood walk.

We used scissors, construction paper, green paint, leaves and glue.

First I cut out a bare tree shape, then we glued it onto blue construction paper.

Next, my daughter used  thumb prints with green paint to add the grass.

Finally, we finished it off by glueing on some of the leaves we collected on our walk.  We talked about seasonal changes, colours and weather while working on this.

To celebrate Fall, through my Benny and Boo shop, I began a giveaway two weeks ago.  Today was the draw, and using, I have chosen the winner of this beautiful Tangerine Owl blanket.

My favourite season!

Here is a picture of my youngest on our Fall walk.  We had fun exploring the   changing colours and   breathing in the crisp air.  Of course Bunny was with us as well.  He seems to make it into most pictures we take these days.

To me, Fall is a time for change, a time for new ideas and inspirations.  I have decided to start this blog even though I really have no idea where it is headed after this post!

My first order with this new blog is to celebrate Fall with a Benny and Boo giveaway!  To stick with the Fall theme I have chosen my Tangerine Owl blanket as the prize.
