My friend Lorraine and I were lucky enough to get a double page spread of our faerie shoes published in Stamplers Sampler! We also started and etsy store and are selling our little cobbled wares. Our etsy store is called Paper Confections Two, and I am so excited that I have finally moved forward with starting an etsy shop. Reaching this goal I owe all to Lorraine, who did most of the worked and pushed me to do my share. I'm so lucky to have a muse like Lorraine! I hope you will visit our little shop.
Unfortunately when we submitted the shoes for publication they missed that some were mine and some were Lorraine's. They are going to print a correction in the next issue, which I thought was very generous.

Every day I leave work and can't wait to come home to create more Halloween Decorations out of Vintage papers and images. This was a lady that I started in Portland before I got bitten by the spooky bug. When I took her out of my suitcase she was just begging to become a witch!

Four Lovely Witches Have New Homes
I have had a very short new career as a home builder for witches. I have been addicted to creating little houses for a few days and here are the results:

Even thought the weather has been very crazy for all in San Diego, I've been working on creating Halloween Decorations. This past weeek we had one day that hit over 100 in my neighborhood. It hasn't been that hot here since we purchased the house 1 1/2 years ago. Then a few days later I thought I was back in Ohio. It was warm all day with rain and thunder and lightning that lasted all day long! It was so much fun!
I got a head start with this banner by purchasing a banner at Michaels and recreating it. This hangs over my fireplace in the family room.

Aren't we crazy? Lorraine and I had a great visit to Cedros Avenue on last Sunday. We went to the Mermaid Mercantile at the shell shop, had a tasty vegetarian lunch at the Zinc Cafe and then headed down the street to the Leaping Lotus, one of our favorite haunts. As you can see, Halloween was in the air and we caught the bug.
