Latest & Greatest: September 2010 CK

Kim JacksonAutumn is a great time to start new projects. There’s just something about the kids going back to school that makes me ready to try something new or begin a project I’ve been procrastinating. How about you? Does back-to-school time make you nostalgic for the days of book reports and art projects?

Now that we’re all grown up, we have our own little ways to get that back-to-school mojo going. I’m talking about getting our hands on some fab new scrapbook goodies and learning creative techniques! And for the more ambitious of us, finally organizing our scrap rooms or at least putting together a family calendar. Check out these delightful new products that’ll help you get started on your autumn projects:

Summer Breeze by My Little Shoebox

    As funny as it seems, raking the fall leaves is my favorite autumn activity. It brings back sweet memories of playing with my son in the leaves when he was little. And we usually spend the day outdoors as a family, cleaning up the yard, getting ready for the cold weather … and playing around a bit. The day is always ended with a fire pit!!
