Falling Leaves Bookmark by Gail Green

Linnie Blooms products make the perfect canvas for any inspiration!

What better way to enjoy the crisp autumn air than taking some time for yourself to just…be!  This is the perfect time to take a walk and soak in all the colors of autumn and nature or just curl up with a hot cup of tea and a good book.  

Whatever you choose to during this changing season, make sure to include some creative time.  Only have a few minutes to create?  No problem!  This bookmark is so quick and easy to make, you will still have lots of time to take a walk AND read your book!
