Whoa! That is SOME candy!

Hmmm, my favorite fall activity...that's hard 'cause I like so many thing about fall! I am going to go with creating my kids Halloween costumes. I always make at least part of, if not all of their costume. I love it 'cause I get to be really creative and they get to help, the best part is the look on their faces when they get to wear something they are really proud of!

Hi Ginny! Brand new visitor here. I can't believe you're giving away all these goodies (you're so sweet!!). I live in a city where we get 3 months of sun and the rest rain/snow so as odd as it sounds, my favourite fall activity is walking in the rain (not pouring rain of course lol). Keep up the great work and thanks =)

gocanucksgo said...

Added myself as a follower as well =)THANKS!

I was just hopping around the web and stumbled on your journal. Very cute cards (and not just because I'm biased, though I guess I AM biased :)).

I've never actually lived in a place that experiences a true autumn season. I suppose NYC counts, but even there, in the city, you didn't see the drastic color changes. I used to love coming up with halloween costumes.

Babekha said...

Favourite fall activity? Hmm . . . might be all the nice excuses to start baking again :-) Fresh apple pies, yum yum!

I found your site through 2S4Y, I love it! Especially the cupcake card, too cute :-)

Amy said...

Hi Ginny!! What awesome blog candy!! I have spread the love by posting about your blog candy on my blog's sidebar. ;) My favorite thing about fall is the cooler weather, I get to wear sweaters, the awesome fall harvest and yummy soups that I get to make with it, and the chance to get to do more baking.

my favourite fall activity involves savoring the sights, sounds and smells...i love the colours of the changing leaves, the canadian geese flying overhead sqawking, the sound of the rustling leaves under your feet, the smell of hot apple cider and apple pies baking...

Though I dont get to do it much anymore living in the south, my favorite fall activity is walking through the falling leaves in my childhood neiborhood. I just love the sights and the smells of fall...i love the smell of the fire pits around the neighborhood, the gorgeous dance of colors on the ground...pair that with some pumpkins and a warm mug of cider and I am in HEAVEN!!! Great blog candy...thanks for letting us play!

My favorite fall activity is helping my sister with an annual fundraiser she hosts in her home. It benefits a local church-based food pantry. I make party favors for the event every year. I get to utilize my papercrafting skills for a good cause.
