October is my Favorite Color

October is my Favorite Color

"As long as autumn lasts, I shall not have hands, canvas, and colors enough to paint the beautiful things I see." - Vincent Van Gogh

This time of year we are filling our homes with the traditional colors of red, orange, and yellow. The beauty of fall is truly a relaxing and cozy time of year. It's a chance to slow down rest and renew. Crafting is a great way to relax with your favorite colors of fall. But have you ever thought of going in a different direction with the colors of your fall celebrations and decorations? In today's blog, we've crafted several great projects that have unconventional colors of the fall season. Take a risk and play with color! What will you create?
