I love fall…

Being that I live in the central valley of California, it’s not so much the changing leaves (we don’t have that many trees), the change in weather (it’s 85+ degrees until the end of October, IF we’re lucky…the heat can last into the first half of November) – No – It’s things like:

– Starbucks starts carrying their special holiday drinks. I, myself am a Grande, no whip, peppermint mocha kind of girl (sometimes half caf).

– Fall/Back To School sales at the mall

– And I just like the idea that pretty soon, I can put on my sweatshirt and fuzzy socks and snuggle under my favorite quilt, falling asleep as I watch a movie.

As for plans for this fall, I really hope to focus in on a project I have in mind, which I hope to launch by a November 22nd Craft Fair. As soon as I get a few done, I’ll post them on Etsy! Since I will be drawing my own patterns, It might take a while to work out some kinks, but my goal this fall is to launch this new product. Depending on time, this project may reach into the beginning of the year.

So here’s to sweatshirts, peppermint mochas, and Etsy goodness! I hope you enjoy your 2008 Autumn season!!

Thanks to A Keeper’s Jackpot of the EtsyBloggers Street Team for hosting this month’s blog carnival!
