Happened upon your blog this evening just by chance. I have my very first show coming up in October and I have enjoyed reading about yours and the various whimsies that will be traveling there with you. But it's 11 pm here now and I am left the with strangest compulsion to head back up to the studio to do more work! I'm terrified I won't get it all done!

The best to you and on your upcoming show,

Jamie

I'm not a fan of candy corn, I'm probably the only one, but I can eat an entire bag of the black and orange peanut butter chews!

Love, love, love the black cat cone. Super cute!!!

I love the cones. Candy corn is my favorite candy. When I was small most stores never carried it until autumn just before Halloween and I always called it witch candy. Loved the post but I think I'd better run out and grab a bag of candy corn!

Hello! What a great blog you have here. :) I'm not the biggest fan of candy corn, but perhaps a different treat can be housed in the cones? I LOVE the black cat cone...appropriately spooky but oh so cute! Theresa

Love the cones. I actually made some to decorate my dinning room chairs. Yours are of course, much cuter. Is cuter a word. Oh well, take care.
