Friday Favorites - November 1, 2013

It's the first of November, and the leaves are just starting to turn here in my little corner of the world. I already have "photograph foliage" on my to-do list for the weekend, along with laundry, groceries, cleaning, and a little crafting if I can squeeze it in!

This week's roundup includes a mix of storytelling ideas, inky techniques, and a dash or two of craft room organization. Enjoy, and have an awesome weekend!
