Today is the reveal for Octoberfest 2014  . I love the crisp autumn days and the cool nights, leaves of every color from green to orange to yellow and  the relief from the heat of the summer.
Halloween brings back wonderful memories of trick or treat and lots of great candy to eat
polymer clay acorns made from a real acorn that i molded
fall jewelry made for Blu mudd challenge

I so love the fall, but it means that winter is on the horizon with the challenges of SNOW and cold weather , time to hibernate!

  1. oh my goodness I love that jack o lantern photo!!
    Love the acorns and the leaves too!

  2. I love all of your photos, I think the leaves are my favorite. I also love your jewelry and those acorns!

  3. Hi Lori, Your acorns are cute. I really like your fall necklace too. Your leaf photo is unique in showing so much green. Good job.

  4. Beautiful pictures! And wonderful jewelry. Well done.

  5. All pictures found on line. Loved them. Leaves turned early this year

  6. Wow, you made the mold for the acorn yourself! That's cool! I love the necklace you made with the Challenge Kit, must look ♥ very beautiful when wearing it...

  7. I am so with you. I love this season but once it moves onto winter, I do my best to hibernate.

  8. Wonderful necklace! Oh, but please, don't mention winter yet, lol!

  9. There is just something about acorns that makes them so endearing. I love that you were able to create one out of clay. Thank you so much for sharing. Your necklace is quite lovely. Yes- I am ready for hibernation...but please no snow. lol

  10. Omigosh, what a great pumpkin patch! Such a beautiful necklace with the oak leaf.

  11. Great pictures, I love the grinning pumpkins and your polymer acorn is perfect, I love it.

  12. One of my goals is to make an acorn mold and bead. Next year! I love your. Well done!

  13. Love your necklace and the handmade acorns are adorable. Your photos are awesome!

  14. Your necklace is beautiful and i adore the polymer acorns.

  15. Great acorns and I love your perfect fall necklace.

  16. Another great design of yours Lori... as always, you make me zoomed-in-out-in and out for details.. and found that cute adorable little creature smiling enjoying the acorn.

  17. I love the acorns and the necklace.

  18. Love your pieces.....very autumn! But I am like you ....winter is almost here...time to pull out the blankets and switch to "cold" beading.....

  19. Lovely photos. That yard of jack-o-lanterns is great! Your acorns are beautiful as well as your Blu Mudd challenge piece. I too wish fall could stay around a little longer. I do like winter, but it does come with some challenges.
