I always get a surge of creative inspiration as holiday magazines start to hit the newsstands in September. This year is no exception, and I find that much of my personal inspiration this Halloween is an extension of work I've already done, such as the October feature from Family Circle.
More and more, I've come to recognize how much I like to work with elements of nature. I'm a big fan of the whimsical as well, but I find I'm happiest when I can mix artificial themes with a nod to the natural. So over the next few weeks, as I decorate my own home, I'll post some personal Halloween projects that were inspired by this year's feature. But in the meantime, you can find the story in the magazine or on their website.
