These are a few pictures of some of the pumpkins I am making. I will make many different variations, and possibly many different finishes. I love trying new things, and maybe I will hit on some styles that appeal to others.I love making the leaves and the curly-ques. I think it adds a nice touch to the pumpkins, although it looks more like an ivy leaf.Some folks may notice that, but I just haven't taken the time to examine a pumpkin leaf that close, to see if it would be easily cut from tin.
As for my craft of choice,it depends on what day it is,how much energy I have today, have I eat too much salt, have I drank enough water,have I eat too many sweets, have I had a good solid breakfast,but not too heavy,is the weather too hot, or is it too cold,and what about the humidity and the barometric pressure.What other jobs are waiting on me and must get done today.And I mustn't forget my biorhythm.I'll need to check on that.
I must take all of this into consideration, on any given day, as to what craft I will throw myself into, head on.If I am feeling really good,I may tackle 3 or 4 crafts at once.
I made the round through the yard this a.m.and I think that helps to get the oxygen to my brain,after a good breakfast. Pop helped me to fix breakfast this morning. We had pork tenderloin,eggs,biscuits,with jelly, and coffee, so I'm good in that department.I let the chickens out into the bigger pen,fed the cats and dogs,and baby chicken in the cookie jar.It has almost outgrown the 3 gallon cookie jar, so I only leave it in there at night. During the day, he goes outside in a bigger cage.Yes,we think it is a HE.We didn't really need another rooster, but he will be such a pet after raising him with the cats, and in a cookie jar, we will have to keep him,somehow.
But back to my craft of choice. For a few days now, all I have wanted to do is make pumpkins. I guess it's the season. I really get in the mood to make crafts for whatever holiday is at hand. That's almost too late to get started, unless I am preparing them for next year.I don't understand why I do that, but I only get excited about seasonal or specific holiday crafts, during that season.
