    Looking for realistic pumpkins? It is totally possible to make fake pumpkins look real (ish)!

    October 23, 2016 admin

    I went to the hardware store on a mission but to be honest I was in sort of a pissy mood. Already having started the project once, and not happy with where it was going I had to head back out to the hardware store to buy even more lumber and supplies. It’s a part…

    September 13, 2016 admin

    I like pumpkin carving but I know it’s not everybody’s fall crafty jam. I completely agree that pumpkin guts are NASTY but homemade pumpkin seeds are oh, so good!

  • Mosaic Terra Cotta Pumpkins for Fall

    October 22, 2014 admin

    I’ve never been one to get really excited about fall decor. Here in my neck of the woods we don’t have anything that looks like the fall splendor I see on TV with loads of colors and crisp air. Case in point, it’s supposed to be almost 90 degrees here today. That doesn’t seem very…
