Leaves are changing color and falling already! I LOVE FALL and it will be here soon. I love the colors and I absolutely love coloring fall stamps; pumpkins and leaves are my favorites. It's a new school year and a perfect time to learn or brush up on some creative techniques as well. Being creative is a need for me. I crave it! I am excited to be signing up for another drawing class this fall. There is something special about making time for "me" to do something that I like to do. I personally love drawing and coloring because it puts me in a relaxing state of mind; a perfect way to slow down, if only for a little while.
