FUNKY PUMPKIN OVERLOAD

I mentioned in my last post about how I've been working on pumpkins. I have lost my mind with pumpkins. It all started when I saw a really cute post on a blog about stuffed pumpkins with a tutorial; I was pumped! I tweaked the directions and started cutting out the pattern.

I discovered I shouldn't cut patterns while watching reruns of Psych online because I ended up cutting enough patterns for 81 pumpkins. 81 PUMPKINS,Y'ALL.

Anyway, I still have pumpkins to make, but I think I might just wait to make those until next fall because I am just about pumpkin-ed out. I sold quite a few of them at the bluegrass festival we went to a couple of weekends ago, but I still had some left over, so I listed them on Etsy yesterday.

These red and black pumpkins are my favorite!



I think these look a lot like real pale green pumpkins. 






 

 



 

 




Look at how happy they look on my front porch!



This is a painting I made from an old fan blade. It is the scripture about the fruit of the spirit in Galatians.


Another magnetic pin holder!


These last two are mixed media paintings made from kentucky maps. Perfect for bluegrass lovers!


 

I think all the pumpkins finally got to me. I recently started to edit and notice details for a magazine, and on the same day that I began working, it took me half a day to realize that my shirt was on inside out.

This upcoming weekend will be awesome!

My family is playing at a bluegrass festival this weekend. We've been going to this festival since I was at least 12. This year, Jared is going and we're setting up our tent and camping! I'm excited for the most part in spite of the fact that last time we camped, I ended up making my spine go into an S shape and then took one of Jared's painkillers from when he fell off the roof...it was hilarious once the pain meds kicked in. Anyway...

We're also going to set up the craft booth and there will be my crafts, the funky pumpkin patch I'm working on, t shirts, boiled peanuts, along with jellies and jams made by my sister-friend Ashley. I CANNOT EVEN WAIT.

I'll be sure to take tons of pictures and post them here upon our return!
