Pumpkin carving really isn’t as much fun as it sounds. I used to throw pumpkin carving parties, but it turns out that kids get pretty bored watching adults wield knives, and adults get pretty bored cleaning the guts out of pumpkins. The best part is the picture taking when all is said and done.
This year I’ve been inspired to go glitzy and pin sequins to craft pumpkins. I’ll still have them next year! Woohoo!
It took a while, but I had plenty of good Missouri football and Cardinals playoff ball to watch while I pinned. My right thumb felt like I had poked a hole through it, but, hey. . . we’ve got thimbles, right? I don’t have any pretty ones like Kristin, but I found a plastic one in an old sewing kit, and it was invaluable. Next up. . .St. Louis Blues?
What has gotten into me? Been starting blogs, wielding hot glue guns, and this morning I opened a shop on etsy. I am usually one to think on things for several months or so, but Kristin has got me acting fast. Her excitement is contagious, and I don’t want to let her down. I’m not sure how long this burlap bunting banner craze will last, but, “Get ’em while they’re hot.” I’ll customize to your team, party, classroom, or seasonal decor. I’m having fun with the glitter, and I won’t stop now. http://www.etsy.com/shop/AllBanners?ref=search_shop_redirect
First, is there a blogging protocol against posting multiple times in one day? I just started this new adventure on Monday, and then I subbed on Tuesday and Wednesday, so I am all excited to post things today. . .
Second, I am going to be so sad when burlap goes out of style. It’s very easy to craft with, especially when sewing is not in your repertoire! I whipped this up last night after teaching, shopping, carpooling, making dinner, and cleaning it up. Now I want to make some for Mizzou and Cards fans. Takers? Okay, I’ll hook up those crazy Hog fans, too. 😉
