Cones and Party Hats!!!


Happy Friday!!!

Before I forget again, I was given this award awhile back. I have been so busy lately that I forgot to mention it. Thank you all!! I know you are suppose to pass awards on the next person or two. I think you are all make my day. I love reading your blogs everyday. There is one blog that comes to mind, if you haven't been there, you must go. Poppy and Ivy www.amyhollands.typepad.com/ She has a beautiful new shop, but it's her writing that is so witty and smart. It's like reading a funny little book. I think you will enjoy her writing. So I am passing this one on to her.


Here is a little bit of what I have been working on this week.




A friend of mine asked me to make her some cones. She wanted some samples to take with her on a trip she is taking. She thinks a lady she knows will be interested in some for her shop.


Keep your fingers crossed. (Some graphics used are from The Graphics Fairy) Visit her blog if you get a chance. She has a new graphic for you to use everyday. www.graphicsfairy.blogspot.com/
Now for the party hats. This is the first time I have tried party hats. My friend Barbara asked me to make some, so I tried it, and this is what I came up with so far.

I wanted to make some crowns this week as well, but these party hats took up a lot of time.


I like detail, so it takes awhile, but with pretty good results.



Well I hope you enjoyed my arts and crafts hour, now I need to go do some cleaning.
I have made quite a mess this week.
Enjoy your weekend!

Love,
Rosemary
