Thinking "31" Already!

Is it just me, or are any of you getting the itch to create in black and orange already? I created this vintage style Halloween treat cone using my collection of vintage sheet music and crepe paper. I don't know what I would do without Wendy Addison and Kimberlee Edgar to always provide a wonderful selection of goodies to use in my work!

The crepe ruffles are always so much fun to make, though somewhat time consuming. I like to sew the seams, and do my snipping while watching my favorite television show (Martha, who else)?? It's about the only time I seem to rest these days! I got hooked on making Victorian style folded paper ornaments last Christmas, aren't they fun with the Halloween as well?

My children will be back in school soon, and before we know it the pumpkins will be turning orange, amazing!

Enjoy your Summer months, I am cherishing them.. my tomatoes are turning red and I'll be up to my neck soon with Mr. Stripeys, Mama Mia's, Purple Russians, Black Kirims, and Super Sweet 100's.
Yummy, my mouth is watering..
