WOYWW: Autumn is here!

A while ago I came across a creative meme that is called What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. It is all about showing what is going on on your workdesk and is hosted by Julia from Stamping Ground. I really like participating, because it is an easy way to show you what I have been working on, and it is fun to visit some other participants :)

I have been very creative in the past week, and while I don't really like autumn because it is getting colder, the autumn colors are splendid for crafting :) I even made some autumn decoration.

I made one more autumn card :) I am planning to make some more, but I am waiting on new 3D sheets I ordered. The ones I used so far, are from last year. The autumn cards will be going out in swaps and to penpals :)

Last weekend I had some friends over for a autumn related weekend. We decided to make a fall wreath. I saw it on Pinterest and I really wanted to make one. I didn't hang mine because the moss can fall off, because I can't glue every little bit on the wreath, but I like it on the table with a candle in the middle. Don't you think the tealight in the candle holder looks a bit like an apple this way?
There are a lot of links to wreaths on Pinterest but this is the one that inspired me. Which is funny because it isn't really a wreath at all ;)

Please head over to Trish from Love, Laughter and a Touch of Insanity, for a Pin it and Do it Challenge! It is so fun! I participated many times before :)

And lastly, this is my homework. I had to make a couple of fast paintings on music and see if there is a theme. Then I have to make a bigger painting with that theme in mind. It is all intuitive painting. Obviously, the painting isn't done yet, but this is my progress so far. To be continued ;)


  1. Beautiful wreath and I agree with the apple comment. Well done for getting something from Pinterest to look great in real life.

  7. I love your 3D card. I have a bunch of those sheets myself. I should break them out and work on them... while I can still see. I swear my eyesight is getting worse by the day. Your wreath is awesome. I love autumn as well, but I don' t like that it means cold weather is coming. Your quickie paintings are fun looking.

  8. Yep, that candle is apple looking, how beautiful it looks in the wreath, and so good for you; I've pinned loads of great ideas, and never quite got round to them....!

  9. Oooh that looks great! I love Autumn and all the colours it involves. #53

  10. So nice to visit your blog and see all the wonderful colors! I love fall colors too and see your garland is absolute dreamy.

  11. Wow what a beautiful wreath, LOVE the candle in the middle. I've just started with Pinterest, but I can see you can easily lose a few hours looking at everything!

  12. I think that the wreath looks great on the table! My mom has several arrangements like that and they make great centerpieces for dining tables. Great job Cynni!
