Spectacular September Overview

September finally feels like Fall and we celebrate with seven spectacular original posts here at I Gotta Create!

We take a Fall Field Trip to pick out some gourds. I share some great tips, and we see lots of fun sights along the way.

Gotta take a healthy snack on those Fall road trips and hikes.   
Here's an easy recipe for Happy Trails GORP snack mix and some great ideas for upcycling the packaging from the simple ingredients you'll use.

In celebration of surpassing the 500-follower mark, I shared some Halloween flashbacks with updated twists this season:

Hauntingly beautiful pillows can also serve as ornaments for Halloween. 

Easy Candy Corn jack-o-lantern Ornaments make delightful little tricks of treats!

Burlap Halloween Garland celebrates those old scary movies, 

...and do you notice what's grasping the burlap ornaments to the garland?

Well it's Bony Skeleton Fingers out of clothespins, of course! Complete with tutorial for getting that bleached bone effect with salon style nails. {wink!}

Rivaling Spring, we enjoy Nature's hues of Early Fall with a study of the Thistle.

I initiated Spotlight Friday Features so you get more traffic from the linky party. Of course, I'm staying true to my party feature pinterest pledge so you get full credit for your awesome creations..

October will bring lots more fun, original ideas. So if you're visiting for the first time, I want to welcome you! I hope you'll keep in touch.

Thank you so much for your visits and comments. 

September is a Spectacular month! 

Of course, so is August, if you care to take a peek!
