i loved your first post about this and almost made them myself. my house is inundated with pinecones at the moment so anything else would be a nice change :)
Congrats Carla! Send me an e-mail with your address at email@example.com and I will mail those out to you this week.
Thanks to all who commented about your late fall nature tidbits. It is always fun to read about what others are finding out there in the natural world.
