Autumn's Changing Art

This year my Fall & holiday projects have been a little different. It started in the Spring when I was invited to be a vendor at the Na-Da Farms Barn Sale this October. It's the first ever story-based occasional sale about a young woman who ventures off her aunt's estate to create her own cottage. How inspiring is that?!!
I have been so excited to be part of this amazing event that I've been thinking about Fall ever since the Spring. I'm having a ball creating things and taking pictures of them. (You know how I love to play with the camera and new lenses!) I think that's part of what has been different in my Autumn inspired art- loving photography even more... really wanting to capture an item or an event. Taking pictures has become part of my art.

These are one of the most deliciously scented items to make. I wish I could capture the smell with a camera. I call them "starter cones" though I'm sure one of you could come up with a much more eloquent/chic name *smiles*. They are literally pretty little fire starter logs that smell like pumpkin or manderine or vanilla... and they burn for about an hour.

I find myself taking pictures of everything, everywhere (even a crate of pumpkins). I don't know what has been more fulfilling to me - creating or photographing. I don't pretend that I'm especially good at either but taking pictures is another avenue of creating for me and I'm having more fun than ever exploring it. I love that God gives us new ways to be artistic.
Infinite Arrangements of Joy!

Autumn and the art it inspires is a reminder of the artist that God is. He created the earth and all that's in it. He made the colors of the rainbow. He hung the stars. He decorates (Jesus said that He is preparing a place for us). Let's celebrate Him as we watch His living art!

  5. Me again... so,do you personally make them or do you buy them from someone else and resale? Pardon my questions... just curious.

    Also, what is your charge per pair?
