  1. Oh I love Autumn! Here in England the leaves have just started to turn gold and pumpkins for Halloween are filling the shops. British Summer Time ends this weekend when the clocks go back for the winter, and we have started to light our wood stove in the evenings – lots of lovely Autumn days still to come!
    Thanks so much for featuring my Autumn Papercrafting kit in your Autumn Finds

  2. HI Miriam, I'm going to choose Watercolor Basics or Summerscapes for my next fav workshop to take here. Summerscapes because it has 3 artists/e mediums and I work in all 3 mediums. And Watercolor Basics to learn more about color theory. Loved your candyland painting and thanks for a chance to win a print.
