Autumn for me is all about the beautiful colors created by falling leaves. We have some that are burnt orange, red and yellows. These DIY coasters allow you to add the beautiful colors of the season in a super easy and practical way. These coasters also make for a great hostess gift.

I’m a mom to a 10 year old boy and an 8 year old girl. Therefore my life is usually filled with learning, new discovery, bribery and driving to and from all of our activities. I have a loving and very supportive husband of 11 years. When the kids have gone to bed at night, my time is spent crafting while catching up on my favorite shows and movies. I also enjoy reading, window shopping, knitting and perusing blogs for inspirations. Three years ago we moved to Colorado from California and we are enjoying our new environment. I feel very inspired with my new home, my new scrapbook space and the mountain views. Although I’ve been doing some type of scrapbooking since grade school, I only started to scrapbook seriously after my son was born. When he was born I knew I would be staying at home with him but coming from a fast paced sales job I was afraid I would ran out of things to do during the day. Little did I know that with newborns you won’t have any time to do anything else. Anyways, after going through a basic scrapbooking class I was hooked and haven’t stopped scrapping since.
