Happy Fall <3

Here are more pictures of my autumn journal so far. I am loving just being able to write on random pages :) I love love love this journal.




Also, Jamie and a few other bloggers have been talking about the lack of comments that we get :( I get about 400 new hits a day and only get about 10-15 comments per day. So, here is what I am asking:
(the same thing as Jamie :D)
I want to do a little experiment and I need your help. =) If you're reading this right now, could you please just leave a comment and say "hi" or whatever. Introduce yourself if you've never commented. I'd love to meet you. Tell me what your favorite thing about Autumn is! It is the first day of my favorite season!!! Or tell me something that made you happy today! Or your favorite quote! Or maybe just your favorite color. Or a random fact about yourself! Anything.
I will love you forever!! Thank you friends <3

  3. hi,

    my name is katie and i am usually a lurker. it has nothing to do with you. it's me. i have this problem called laziness [i don't want to click through from google reader] and paisley [who only lets me be on the computer so long].

    sorry.

    but i'm excited about fall [because i've never experienced fall before]. my favorite quote from today is "i've got so much time and so little to do. wait... strike that. reverse it." and my favorite colors are robin's egg blue and lemon yellow.

  5. i'm melisa, from the rva autumn class. i saw your link on twitter and ended up here. :)

    fall is my favorite season for many reasons (of which i may blog about, haha) but one is because i'm always ready to get back to school. granted this not a possibility for much longer (i'm a sophomore in college), but still!

  9. Hello, my name is Erika and I have a wonderful 2 year old daughter that makes me notice things that I did not before. Like mommy trees are dancing!
    Also, love autumn because I like colder days with a nice cup of hot chocolate and doing some crochet or sewing some homemade toys for my family :) Have a nice day!

  14. Hello,
    I just recently discovered your blog. I started following because you bring lots and lots of inspiration. My story is I'm a librarian but was fired from the budget cuts in California. Now, I'm a stay at home wife, and in a rut. I'm looking to find some motivation and inspiration besides the freelance writing and photography i do.
    phew!
    anyways, love your work!

  16. One of my favorite quotes:

    "If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you many never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person." - Fred Rogers (mister rogers)

  21. Howdy! I'm Kara and I only recently found RVA and you and your friends' lovely blogs. :-)

    And what is my favorite thing about Fall?! Oh goodness, what ISN'T my favorite thing about Fall?! Haha! But really, I adore the season and I think it's when God shows just a little bit more of his creative side with majestic colors! I also totally dig it here in Missouri with all of the hills and gorgeous trees! (Being raised in Oklahoma with fewer trees, I can tell you, there's a huge difference!) Then there's the cool breezes, the Fall clothes, the warm drinks, etc... :-)

    Nice to meet you! I hope to become friends with you! And really, all of you awesome, creative ladies of RVA! :-D

  22. Hi! Super cute pages!

    I'm still thinking about when I watched a Monarch butterfly come out of it's chrysalis with my preschool class yesterday. It was a beautiful, incredible sight. Some photos here. Have a great week!

  25. Hey Janel!

    Autumn is BY FAR my favorite season because my favorite holiday is Thanksgiving! I also love scarves, jackets, leaves changing color, fireplaces, bonfires...the list goes on and on!

    Love,
    Jess

  26. Hey Janel...my favorite thing about fall are: the smells (pumpkins, cinnamon, pies, cool air), decorating my home, and carving pumpkins. I really could go on and on.

    I had a couple great things happen to me... I got a free pumpki spice latte from Starbuck compliments of my mom, saw my brother off to Spain at the airport this morning, and have had the most comments on my blog today!! I had seven! Hey it is the small things...and thanks Janel for your comment.

    Happy Fall!
    XOXO

  41. oh!
    i forgot to tell you what i love about fall.
    my grandmother makes this drink called wasel.
    (i'm actually not sure how to spell it.)
    it's sooo good! it's like a cider, but there's orange peel in it.
    and you leave the peel and cinnamon sticks in it.
    it's so yum!

  44. Hi Janel! I'm Jackie and I'm like you with the whole comment thing (and I might have to do a similar experiment, you had 44 comments when I looked!!). I love autumn and your journal and my new found crochet skills. If I come to the States and you still don't know how to do it, I'll teach you!! xx

  45. Hi! I'm Sarah. I read your blog thru my Google Reader. I moved to Los Angeles from Michigan three years ago and I'm really being to miss the change in seasons! It's still in the 90's and sunny here. What I wouldn't give for some cool crisp sweatshirt weather!

  46. I love your album! I agree with the comment thing, although I'm a newbie at blogging. Glad to have a new blogging friend with so much inspiration.

  47. Hi. I'm Emma :)

    My favourite thing about Autumn is the smell in the air. On November 5th we have Bonfire night over here in the UK, and the scent of fire and fireworks in the evenings is unmistakably autumnal! x

  48. I'm Jaymi. And I'm a lurker. ("hi Jaymi") I'll comment if I absolutely have something to say, but I'm mostly shy.

    I'm super excited about this autumn because my 3-year old understands sooo much now. I can't wait to share EVERYTHING with her: the pretty fall leaves, pumpkin carving, hot chocolate, halloween, etc.

    I remember you commented on my blog once and I was super excited thinking "Hey, it's Janel. I follow her blog and now she has commented on mine! Wow."

    I know, I'm a dork.

  49. Hi Janel,

    My name's Jenny and I have been a lurker on the crafty/RVA blog circut for quite a long time. I'm always looking for inspirational blogs and yours is a daily read. Fall is my favorite season because of the cool breezes, pumpkin spice lattes, great photo ops in the changing leaves, and of course the RVA Autumn Class! Thanks again for being such a great inspiration and such a sweetheart. (Oliver Octopus says "hi"-in an underwater bubbly sort of way.)

  54. Hi! My name is Janelle. My favorite quotes are:
    We wouldn't worry so much about what others think of us if we knew how seldom they do.

    Embrace your inner geek. Life's too short to be cool.
