Thanks to all who entered the drawing! The winner is Kathleen, who says:

“September is my favorite month. We enjoy still-warm days and cooler nights. It is always the point in the year where I begin planning my indoor projects for fall and winter. I like to think the transition from summer to fall sparks my creativity!”
