What I've been up to...

The past few days I've had a craving for creating! So...naturally...I had to feed that craving :)

The pumpkins have been done for about 3 years, except for the tops (really...I didn't know how to finish them, I was looking for a stick of some sort to make the stem...but then I got into my spool collection for another project and thought they would be perfect!)

This is my first attempt at a chicken wire cloche...please don't look too close LOL (Hey Elise, feel free to tell me how you make your tops look awesome...wink...wink :) Anyway, it turned out cute and I like it :) I'm spray painting a pizza pan for it to sit on...thinking of adding some more spools to the pan for "legs." :)

(What do you think of my awesome furniture arrangement? Really it's not always like this, just 5:00 in the morning when I workout...and when I vacuum :)

The final thing(s) that I got out yesterday involves Christmas (I know, I know!!!) I'm not ready to show them yet but I did them a few years ago for a craft show. Maybe sold one or two, and a whole bunch to my mom (they are the best supporters!!!). Well, all I can say is that they are really DORKY and my taste has really changed!!!! Sooooooooooo...I'm re-working them and I'm thinking about opening up an Etsy store (OK, who doesn't have a store). When I get some done I'll share...:)


  1. I don't have a store. Yet....
    I love the pumpkins! I'm going to have to raid my fabric stash now to make some more!

  2. I have an empty shoppe. Yay...
    Um, my cloche tops aren't the best looking, something about the spray paint helps it a lot. Your's looks great!!
    Love the new blog look. Oh, and your pumpkins are so cute, too!!
