I've always been a fan of Family Fun magazine, even before I had children. I would love skimming through the pages, looking for ideas I might could use one day when God blessed me with kids. But this month's issue of Family Fun is extra special to me . . .
Remember our Fall Leaf Crowns that we made in November 2, 2010? Not only were they featured on The Crafty Crow in 2010, they also made it as #14 on the "100 Ideas for your Fall Bucket List" on Creative Family Fun on September 5 this year. And my idea has now been published in Family Fun, too!
I am honored and so excited to be a part of the October issue. An idea that I created on the whim one afternoon while gathering beautiful fall colored leaves with my children has turned into a fun craft that we have been able to share with many others.
My family and I have had been perusing our issue and passing it back and forth from one another. We have enjoyed seeing what other fall ideas we might be able to incorporate into our fall schedule. Like the owls you make out of bathroom tissue paper rolls and cupcake liners...or the idea to begin a "One Sketch a Day Diary"...or the trail mix muffins for our fall nature hikes...and definately the adorable pumpkin (carrot) patch dippers.
My favorite page though is without a doubt, page 18, where you can see my idea featured (and my name, too). :)
An added bonus--it hit the magazine rack on my birthday. What an awesome birthday gift!
Thank you Family Fun for the honor to be featured in your magazine!
