We are making masks.
I am using gourds as display stands for my eye masks.

My friend came over for Krafty Kitten day.
She decorated one of her masks with recycled black lace she cut from an old bra. This one also received a beaded butterfly that once was an embellishment on an old tea-shirt.

Tan lace, black netting and bead flowers from an old pair of
 flip-flops made this mask very unusual.
We had so much fun!

My husband and I folded
a Black Cat mask.
It was involved but very fun to do.

Masks are fun to make and
wonderful decorations for Halloween.

We have just begun our
 papier mache projects.
They take a long time to dry.

I have begun putting together my paper
making supplies.
I am excited to use garden plants.
Some of these I will harvest after frost.

Paper projects are one of the
ways I hope to use junk mail and paperboard.
I am gathering ideas.

What fun making masks. All of the items you and your friend collected to decorate them are very clever. I am always facinated with origami but I can never keep it all straight in my mind. I can't wait to see the paper you make.
