    Pumpkin Spice Clipart

    My November clipart set just feels so cozy and festive – exactly like I want November to be! I really wanted to do a pumpkin spice theme, but maybe a little differently than others have already done. I couldn’t be happier with how these turned out.

  • Friday Freebie – Pumpkin Spice Sugar

    I have a bit of an unconventional freebie for you today.  I found a recipe for Pumpkin Spice Sugar on The Cottage Market, and it comes with these really cute printable labels.

Go check out the recipe and the labels and have a wonderful weekend!
