OCTOBER 2023 - ANYTHING GOES

Hello, Crafty Makers

Well, it is October and I eagerly await the onset of cooler weather.  Some leaves have turned and it is just wonderful driving around and looking at all the gorgeous red and gold splendor!

This month our challenge is "ANYTHING GOES!"    I hope we see some of those fall colors in your designs!

To our crafting friends in NYC, you are in our thoughts!
