Fall Happenings

The fall or autumn season is upon us which means Back to School, football, falling leaves, hurricanes, and holiday readiness.
first day of school
 I created small gifts for the kids' teachers and assistants. The first day I gave the teachers a Spark packet and water to get them geared up for the day!

 Today, I gave them a painted Ball jar with their favorite type of pencils (those cost more than the glass jars!).

In my small booth at a local shop, I have been joined by a friend who creates adorable hair accessories. I am working on new items for fall and the upcoming holiday season such as banners, burlap table runners, chalkboards, and what ever I dream up.

For Back to School, I have created AdvoCare baskets geared for the returning college students, teacher gifts, and the local fitness buffs.

I grew up on the coast and my parents are still there so I watch with concern with every tropical development in the Atlantic. I cross my fingers that we are spared this hurricane season.

This post is for the BBA's Monthly Challenge as suggested by Linda! Read more about the challenge here.

QUESTION: What do you look forward to during the fall season?

Your daughter looks adorable!! Those gifts are great - I love the painted jars with pencils. I keep a pencil in every drawer in case I need to sketch something.
Praying that your parents won't be affected by the hurricane!

lucky teachers!
Your daughter looks so cute!
Summer is my favorite, so there's a bit of sadness about Fall for me. I do love the changing of the seasons, though. I love the beautiful colors of autumn leaves.

Oh, yeah - it's hurricane season! All the worst storms seem to hit in September.

Those jars and pencils are so cute! I can believe the pencils cost more than the jars, themselves.
