Pumpkin Pancakes {and apple cider syrup}

I am pretty much addicted to anything pumpkin so when fall comes around we turn to some of our pumpkin favorites.

I shared this video and recipe in Creatively Made Home {Home for the Holidays} and wanted to share it with you today!

We hope you love them as much as we do.

The winner of the Soul.Full art supply giveaway is

I put soul into my writing, my sketches, my daily routine. I am reminded when I take a walk outside and see the beauty of nature through a camera lens and with just my eyes. I love doodling outside. I end my day with soul as well … always a eptom salt/sea salt bath, listening to chakra bowls, and taking some deep breaths as I release my day and focus on what I am grateful for. Thank you for this opportunity. Can’t wait for class to begin.
