New Creative Challenge Theme: AUTUMN

In honor of the official beginning of Autumn next Monday -- and the lovely Fall-like weather we're having here in Tennessee this week! -- my new challenge theme is AUTUMN.

What does autumn mean to you?  To me, Autumn means falling leaves, of course, and autumn colors of gold and red and orange and brown.  It means nights that get longer and cooler.  Bright sunny days with a little nip in the air.  Cool rainy days spent with a blanket and a good book.  Pumpkin pie, red apples, Halloween and Thanksgiving.  School clothes and Number 2 pencils.  Here in Tennessee, early Fall means the acorns are ripe and the squawky bluejays arrive to eat them!

If you see the definitions of "autumnal" in my picture above, it can also refer to a metaphorical autumn, the autumn of one's life, an autumnal style in art, a feeling of something a little past ripe but still lush, a turning from fullness of summer toward the stillness of winter, a golden in-between time.  A turning inward.  Fall always energizes me, with cooler air and bright turning leaves and a new school year, but it also tends to make me reflective.

FIND AUTUMN IMAGERY to inspire you!

  • Any craft or medium is OK.
  • Limit of 3 entries from one person in each challenge, please.
  • Vintage style is encouraged.
  • Use a Lunagirl image or element and your entry will count twice in the drawing!
  • Remember to link to this blog and to on your site if you have one.
  • Prize:  Winner will be selected randomly to receive a $10 credit at!
  • Challenge ends at noon CST on September 28.

  • Of course I love if you use at least one Lunagirl product, and I hope you'll go take a look at my collection... but that's not a requirement!  But do remember that if you use a Lunagirl image, you will be entered TWICE in the drawing! I want to welcome everyone and every style but also give a little something extra to my wonderful customers! Most important is have fun, get creative, enjoy vintage. 

    I can't wait to see your creative reflections on AUTUMN!  The Design Team has created some very lovely pieces to get your creative juices flowing (see them below).
