I want to tell you a little bit about my projects this month. My daughter just graduated from college and is blessed to have a job teaching and running a high school library. As a way to encourage her students I am making her bookmarks that she can use as "raffle" prizes. So all my projects this month are bookmarks. I also made them all from paint chip samples that had been in my stash of paper for several years. To me art has a personal connection. These bookmarks share a little bit about who I am.

I hope you have enjoyed this Autumn Fun hop as much as I have had making these bookmarks. My last bookmark used MFP set called

HARVESTVILLE FARM is near to our home. They have events and sell produce more than just in the fall, but in the fall is when they really come alive. People come from all over to navigate their cornmaze, pick pumpkins, enjoy hayrides, sit by a bonfire and play at their non-traditional playground. It is where my kids and I go to get our pumpkins. I could go elsewhere, but since my family doesn't celebrate Halloween we don't want to carve our pumpkins, we want ours to eat, and Harvestville Farm has the best eating pumpkins.


  1. There is something about purple and orange colors that I like and your paint chip creation is awesome!! hugs

  2. What a wonderful bookmark MariLynn - love the oranges against the purples. I admire your amazing creativity.

  3. MariLynn, this looks wonderful! I think this might be my favorite all week. Of course, I'm a huge fan of purple!

  4. You have done it again...another fun bookmark! I love the color combo :) Hugs...Janie

  5. Love the colors and images on your project. I don't think I have all of those images. Back to the wish list. TFS!

  6. So very pretty, Marilynn. I love the use of the paint chip and the beautiful colors.
    Have a great weekend.

  7. Omygosh! I love this idea! So clever!
