      I love what you said about the leaves in your garden being like a mat only for you. What a beautiful thought!

  9. Very clever. I may try it. I never knew what the E6000 glue could do. Thank you for the idea.

    I love the colores, the chill in the air, the sky at night seems to be a deeper blue. having a campfire and being outside at this time of year is my favorite. And on rain-y fall nights I love to scrap the night away! Thanks for yet another beautiful idea Joy!

    1. Jsdobmeier,
      If I wasn’t a fan of fall, you would have just sold me on it! 😉 Fall is my favorite time of the year too. 😀

    love the video. you are so resourceful! . My favorite thing about Fall is Football ! It keeps my husband busy to I can craft!

    1. LOL Barbarajean!! Never become a football fan or you’ll be watching right along with your husband. 😉 It took 17 years, but that’s what happened to me. LOL!

  16. Joy this is a really cute project! (I own hurricane lamps and have for a very long time and love them…especially when the electricity goes out!)

    What I like best about the Fall is the candy corn that comes out for Halloweeen…yummy!!! TFS

  17. Thank you for sharing this awesome project. I see a trip to the Dollar Tree in my very near future! My favorite part of the fall is being able to camp again. The cooler weather makes the evenings just right for campfires and spending time with friends.

    1. Eskana,
      I like to camp too! (Though…only in a cabin. LOL!) If we still make a fire that can count, right? 😉

  18. Joy, I loved watching your video! It was so much fun to watch. I love goo gone but now I have to go and watch your video for undu. It looks like it might be lots better! Thanks for a super video!!

  19. Cool project! One of my favorite things about Fall is decorating the house up with Scaracrows and Halloween things. Have a great weekend.

  20. what I love about fall is: warm fuzzy sweaters, leaves on the trees changing colors, playing in the fallen leaves while raking, and of course my favorite holiday, Halloween.

My favorite thing about fall is the beautiful leaves and the nice crisp air… not too cold tho, just enough to be refreshing. Thanks for sharing this great idea with us.

    ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Cricutcrazylisa,
      You + Me = Roll Tide!! 😉
      Also, you can find Un Du – 4-Ounce at Amazon. I bought mine at a Scrapbooking Expo, but I think you might be able to find it in your local craft store. Try Joann.com and Walmart too. 😉


  30. What a great idea! Easy peasy Christmas gifts. NICE!!! Love the vid. I was watching you paint your Cricut and now I HAVE to paint mine. My husband was also watching and crackin’ up at you. I don’t know why I thought it was a very good idea.

    Oh yeah, GREAT blog hop by the way. You guys sure are some talented ladies!

  34. Well I am back from Scrapfest. Had a SUPER SUPER weekend. Actullay got a few layouts done. Took a shadowbox class- That really came out GREAT. Now to business leaving a comment-Loved your video and chance to win give-a-way. I actually made something like that years ago for Christmas, but instead I used something like a small fishbowl and glittered snowflakes around it and then decorated it with chrismas flowers. I put a small votive candle in mine.

  35. mary89kay says:
