The Most Wonderful Time of Year deserves a GIVEAWAY!

It's that time again....The October Issue of Create and Decorate is on the shelves!

If that cover doesn't make you ready for Fall...how about this?

This lamp is my contribution this issue...a little whimsical Halloween for your painting pleasure...

For some reason, when I re-subscribed (there are a few issues that I have no projects in, so I don't get complimentary copies), I ended up with two subscriptions. So in months where I also have a project, I end up with four copies. What better excuse for a giveaway?

In case that's not enough....Just because I feel like celebrating all sorts of "new" stuff ...new school year, new season, new issue of one of my favorite mags, new project for me...I'm going to give a couple of those issues away! Our last giveaway was in the winter, so it's time for a new one, don't you think?

All you have to do to win is leave a comment on this post. Tell me what your favorite thing about Fall is...

If you write about the contest on your own blog and link back to me, let me know by sending me an email with the link, and I will enter your name a second time!

What's in it for you? I will draw two lucky names who will each get a copy of the October issue of Create and Decorate , the candle lamp used and one set of two silicone dipped bulbs. All you will need to get started is the lampshade (and the source for that is in the article), paints and brushes.

Let's keep it open a few days, so we can get the word out...How 'bout you have until midnight on Labor Day to enter....

Come on, tell me what you love about Fall...

Good Luck everyone!

Until Next Time,

STEPH


P.S. You have to leave me some way to contact you, please (email is fine)! Anonymous posts with no contact info will be deleted. If I cannot connect with winners within a few days of trying, I will draw again....

Hey Steph!
I love your blog! I added you to mine!
So you ask what I love about the fall season? What is there not to like???? I love how our good Lord paints all the leaves different colors and how the winds blow and we get to watch them dance! I would have to say that is my favorite! Keep up your blogging! i really enjoy it!

I love the way fall smells. Apple cider, cinnamon, pumpkins....And I love the sound of leaves crunching beneath my feet.

Hi Steph, I've come via Delphi Forums. What a lovely prize- we just don't get that magazine in the UK.

I love Autumn because of the rich colours of the landscape, the way the leaves turn from green to rich reds and oranges and all the colours in between. I love being able to put crows up and pumpkins, and bring a little of Autumn inside the house. I love apples fresh off the trees and the smell of apple pie and cloves cooking. Then there's the mushroomy smell of the woods when you kick the wet leaves and spy little fungi peeping. In short it's a time of beautiful change with harvest coming in and you can begin to curl up with some knitting or quilting and not have to worry about the garden.

Beautiful blog and well done for having an entry in a magazine! Amazing!

I just came over from pilgrims and pioneers. I saw the word fall and had to come check it out. Fall is my favorite time of the year. I dont know how to pin point one thing about fall I love the most there are such great things. The coolness, the beautiful leaves. Bon-fires, pumpkins, cider,apples and fall festivals. I could go on but I'll spare you. Thanks for such a great giveaway! Blessings, karen

Fall is just the BEST! I love the cooler temps, the colors, the smells, and I love knowing that winter and snow is on the way!

Susan Hickam said...

I think I love the cooler weather and the incredible fall leaves. My mother and I used to go for walks looking for leaves to press and keep. I still have some from our last fall walk in 1994. Congrats on getting your project( and apparently lots of your projects) in the Create and Decorate mag. I am unfamiliar with that title and now I will have to look for it. my e-mail is susanmhickam@yahoo.com

My favorite thing about Fall is when our new maples start turning colors. Especially the deep pinky red before they fall to the ground. Great giveaway idea, Steph! Kathy

I was born in November, so autumn brings the expectation of holidays, birthdays, autumn leaves, crisp clean air, warm days & cool nights, apples, apple cider, apple pie, pumpkins... what's not to love?!

I'm putting a link on my blog under "Fun Giveaways". I enjoyed looking through your blog!
