• Make Fake Pumpkins Look Real

    September 9, 2019 admin

    Looking for realistic pumpkins? It is totally possible to make fake pumpkins look real (ish)! After moving South Texas many years ago I was terribly disappointed to learn that nobody puts pumpkins out on the front porch. Simply put, it was far too hot and they would quickly rot making them not worth the effort.…

  • Colorful Mummy Pumpkins

    October 18, 2017 admin

    So I’ve been really wanting to add more color to my Halloween and fall decor game. I mean, I LOVE color so why the heck not? Who says Halloween has to be black and orange only, anyway?  I’m hardly the only one embracing my love of color these days and I am so in love with…

    We have this lovely lady named Laura who Rob has come out to the house once a week to help me keep the house work under control. You see, Rob is not what we’d call tidy and each day I go around and pick up after him, often for about an hour a day. Over…

  • No Carve Eyeball Pumpkins Halloween Craft

    October 7, 2017 admin

    There’s something about the whole grotesque Halloween thing that bothers me. I don’t like blood and guts and scary movies and so I suppose it only makes sense that these types of projects creep me out. I mean, last year I made a bloody brain jello and I was so excited because it was going…

  • Galaxy Pumpkin – an Out of this World Jack-o-Lantern

    October 18, 2016 admin

    I lose things. Like, constantly. So when I lost a black fake pumpkin Rob and I were hardly surprised. We looked EVERYWHERE. Or, at least I looked everywhere and assumed Rob was helping :) But apparently everywhere doesn’t include the trunk of my car. Or maybe it does. That thing is black and it gets…

    October 17, 2016 admin

    So Rob and I had been in South Texas for ages and AGES and we could never find any place to purchase pallets for my pallet wood craft projects. I had just  gotten into this whole business when I was moving away from Oklahoma and I had a great source for pallet wood. They were cheap and…

  • Drilled Pumpkin Light

    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! Just thinking about the strings and goop stuck onto my arms all itchy like drives me nuts. Yuck. In recent years I’ve started to carve funkin fakes instead of…

  • Chunky Glitter Pumpkin

    November 22, 2015 admin

    I’m truly in love with my new house. It didn’t seem like that would be the case when Rob first unlocked the door and brought me into my new home. I literally stood there trying not to cry. We looked at the house without power and we figure that was on purpose. We could only…

    October 22, 2015 admin

    Every year I go nuts and carve a ton of pumpkins. One year my sister and I carved ALL NIGHT LONG to have a bazillion as decor for my nephew’s birthday. I remember loading up every space of the car with fresh pumpkins that had gone on clearance at Walmart. I looked like a crazy…
