As the Leaves Turn

As we move from September to October, our scraps will be moving from orange into brown and maybe even black.  October has been reserved for the darker shades of the scrap bin.  I know a lot of people like to push these shadowy hues to the side and ignore them in favor of the bright and happy colors, but I urge you to dig in and see what you can find to play with this month.  Any shade of brown, black or even gray will work for this month.

Perfect! I think I'll stick to brown mostly, but I have plans for my grey and black too if I have a chance!

Oh, this could be a CHALLENGE! I might be going with the black.

Since all of my backgrounds are black and white prints, I'll need to go with warm browns . . . .

A great idea! A few of my projects need more brown.

brown and black. I look forward to looking through my hexagons to see what I can get made with those.
The Hallowween hexagon table topper sold within 2 hours of my listing it in my etsy shop.
Today I hope to get the orange yo-yo table topper listed up for sale.
This challenge really has me motivated to keep working!
