Flames of Fall

Standard

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.

George Eliot

 

Fall for me is collecting leaves any chance I can get, pressing them in big books, and opening up books later to get unexpected little treasure of leaves perfectly flattened, preserved, and bookmark ready!

In the meantime, spotted these on a tree and plucked a few even that were almost ready to fall!IMG_1271-2 IMG_1272-2 IMG_1277-2 IMG_1280-3

 

“Not a leaf falls but that He knows it.” – Quran 6:59

About Doodling Through Life

I doodle. All the time. Doodling helps me make sense of the world around me. When I doodle, whether it be swirls or figurines, I am transformed to a world in which my doodles live, and my thoughts become clear. My mind breathes. Through my art medium of pencils, paint, potting soil, and pixels, I thrive. I am a teacher and have taught 2nd grade in Fulton County Schools in Atlanta, Georgia for 4 years. I am currently a Stay-At-Home-Mommy to a ___ daughter (she was born in June 2010—you can do the math !) and a ___ preschooler (she was born November 2012) who is exploring my creative outlet via the aforementioned 4 P’s! So far, I’m an author whose book Lailah’s Lunchbox was published in 2015 via Tilbury House Publishing. I have 2 new picture books projected for 2019: Amira's Picture Day (Holiday House, 2019) and Let Me Show You The Way (Eerdmans, 2019)! I’m an Atlanta based children-family-lifestyle photographer on weekends. Thank you for stopping by!

  1. Fall is the best! I was walking to class today and the leaves were falling in the wind and it was such a beautiful scene it seemed like a movie! I should grab some leaves to preserve on my next walk, seems like a great idea 🙂
