I haven’t been quiet about how I feel about carving pumpkins. I hate it! I can handle the guts….but I cannot handle the effort it takes to design and achieve a beautiful pumpkin like you see in a magazine. I will start out with a design and high hopes……..it quickly turns sour when I realize my cutting skills are uncoordinated and choppy. I always end up with the typical and traditional triangle eyes, nose and zigzag or round mouth………..while my husband……..the non-crafty one ends up with a beautifully carved scene using a template. Whatever………
Here are a few ideas I found from Get Your Craft On this week. (499 links of pure inspiration!) These are ALL non-knife welding options. Clicking on their title will take you do the original site.
I can’t really do this one either………since I don’t sew. But I like how unique they are.

Halloween seems to be the holiday that kicks off the holiday season. Which means it’s time to plan my Creative Holiday Gift Guide.
I’ll be offering 7 weeks of a different holiday guide weekly. If you have an online shop, etsy shop or boutique, this is great exposure for you. I love giving all you readers the opportunity to purchase original gifts not found at Target…..all the while supporting handmade or online boutiques.
If you’d like to be included, please email me, I’ll send you the fee structure. krjdemmonATgmailDOTcom
