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 tented hahaha) 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!!!


Here is the bigger ones that Amanda and I made!!! I love these!

6months, 16 pounds and a double ear infection....

How does it happen, and so stinkin fast..... Brynlee is already hitting all kinds of mile stones. She is 6 months old now, 16 pounds ( little fatty mcfatty) had her first double ear infection (she'd rather not have those, thank you very much) she is rolling from front to back and back to front now, which means she is a lot more mobile than she was before I left for San Diego, holy crap!!!! Before I freakin know it, we'll be shopping for dorm room furniture!!!! REALLY!!!!
