And because I am VERY grateful for my beautiful blogger friends, I am going to do a give-away. If you leave me a message on this post and (if I don't KNOW you) include your email so I can contact you should you win) I'll put your name in the cornucopia - uh - basket. And TOMORROW night I will draw a winner. Why so fast? I am going to the post office Saturday morning & I will need to get this wrapped & addressed Friday! So if you think you'd like to win my little door greeter, leave a comment! Now, because I made WAAAAAY too many leaves for the door hanger, I think I will go make myself a leafy table runner!

Em was the AWESOME part of this post! Now for the Autumn part. I made - yes, you guessed it - another tiara yesterday. Hopeless, aren't I? This one is Autumn-themed and, to be completely honest, did not turn out as I had visualized it. But, oh well! I had a good time making it and will try a new one soon. Maybe if I set this one aside awhile, I will like it better at a later date. (Maybe not.)
Here is the front view. See where I added little baby 'punkies' at the base?
And here's a side view. I sneaked in a tiny bird, too. 'Scuse the lil' glue-blob next to the 'gem'. I have a habit of taking photos before the glue dries. BAD KAI! In fact, THAT'S why there's no photo of the inside (which looks pretty if I say so myself - LOL!) There's too much glue still visible.
I HAVE been making other things BESIDES tiaras! REALLY! But they are for November birthdays and I don't want to show them till I mail the packages Nov. 1 & the birthday celebrants receive them.
OFF-TOPIC NOTE: You know, I really MISS my THE PARTY IN KAI'S HEAD blog, but I am getting used to THIS one. Let's hope BLOGGER (who happens to be on my SERIOUSLY BAD LIST for red-flagging & threatening to delete my opinion blog because of 'questionable content') doesn't destroy THIS one. Watch them consider THAT comment 'questionable' and mess me up AGAIN. Guess I better hush before the Blogger Police come after me.

1. Do you prefer caffeinated or not?
2. Whole bean or ground? For what type of pot or press?
EITHER for coffeemaker.
3. What types of roasts do you enjoy? Are you more the light and lively or dark and robust type?
Dark & robust! (Same way I like my men! LOL!)
4. How do you 'take' your coffee? Creamers? Sweetener? Other add ins?
Always French vanilla (liquid ONLY) creamer & Splenda.
5. That first morning cup - is it about the taste, or the caffeine?
6. Do you enjoy going out to coffee shops like Starbucks? What are some of your favorites?
I do go to Starbucks and to bookstore coffee shops but generally order just plain coffee! I can't resist Border's Bookstore Autumn coffees. YUM!
7. You've just made the perfect cup of coffee - is it in a thick mug, or a thinner cup? Where would you sit to drink it?
My big old thick mug! And I drink coffee in my office, in my 'studio', or sometimes in front of the tv.
8. You're enjoying that perfect cup, and have a magic cabinet in your kitchen - when you open it, magically, your favorite treats will appear to enjoy alongside the coffee - what are they? Are they sweet? Crunchy? Soft and flaky?
I don't generally care for sweets except for old-fashioned homemade tea cakes or just about ANY biscotti!
And the second set of questions has to do with yarn.
Yes! I do all sorts of creative things in addition to yarn work. I do counted cross stitching, paper art, clay, some 'sewing', etc. I also read a lot and I sing.
Absolutely! Gingerbread people, Santas, cups & saucers, & dust (the last not by choice.)
The cooler weather, the promise of the upcoming holidays, the smells, the colors, EVERYTHING.
In candles or any home scent, I like ONLY Autumn (pumpkin spice, apple-cinnamon, pie or cooky scented) NO FLORALS AT ALL. I wear only one cologne - the same I've worn for 28 years - & it's now hard for me to find. It's Estee Lauder Youth Dew. I'm allergic to everything else!
See previous answer. Also chocolate. (Isn't that cruel?) Note: I DO drink Raspberry Chocolate coffee ALL the time. It's just big 'doses' of chocolate which give me hives.
Creating, drinking coffee, and watching my favorite movies!
