Okay so here it is, I have this fetish (no joke) with pumpkins, most without the faces, my taste is more plain jane thank you very much!!! They bring me joy to look at, they calm me, kind of like a long hot bath with Tylenol PM running through you, they always put a smile on my face and make me giddy, no really!!!! SO I have found a way to feed my fetish all the while still being able to feed my kiddos, Priorities here, Priorities!!! So when my sweet friend Amanda over at Dejavu crafts and I got together we tore my house apart looking for pumpkins that we could make by just copying some of the ones I already had and just adding our own little twist to them. So off the the Cemetery (really) we went in search of old wood that my dad had lying around (no pun in tentedhahaha) we found pallets and pallets that he said he would be more than willing to GIVE us, yes friends you read that right, these pumpkins didn't cost us a dime (seriously) and yes my dad owns the cemetery and it is the coolest thing in the world (no really it is) Geesh Gene you are awesome!!!!! and low and behold we came up with these, here is the first one that I did and the bigger one and other little one are coming soon, I promise, I do have to keep a clean house while I craft to keep a happy hubby ;) So more are coming, and pics of the other things I've been working on!!!! HAPPY FALL!!!

Blessings Will Come When We Make Our Home a Sanctuary
"Let us make our homes sanctuaries of righteousness, places of prayer, and abodes of love that we might merit the blessings that can come only from our Heavenly Father. We need His guidance in our daily lives."
“May we . . . demonstrate kindness and love within our own families. Our homes are to be more than sanctuaries; they should also be places where God’s Spirit can dwell, where the storm stops at the door, where love reigns and peace dwells.”
