  1. Perfect project to do as a fam with the 2 yr included. We are doing this as soon as I get a manzanita branch. I wonder if I can order one on Amazon?

    1. ML, Yes Amazon, Ebay and a number of online retailers will have them! Although they should sell them at a Michael’s too! Good Luck with the craft!

  2. I think this is a great craft for all parts of the world, even if you don’t have a real “fall”. Crafting supply stores will always have fall colored leaves so even if you can’t find the real ones, you can make a mobile to create the fall feeling!!!!

  3. The solution to achieve a state of not any thought is often a tire-iron to the back with the head. I can’t understand why anyone may wish to achieve a state of no thought, but should you wanna undertake it than topple yourself available pun supposed.
