I decided this year to carve a pumpkin without cutting all the way into the inside of the pumpkin. Martha Stewart had a design I saw after I did this one with ginko leaves going around the pumpkin and it was lovely. My sister said she heard that if you apply a little petroleum jelly along the cut area that it will preserve it longer. She took this pumpkin home. I told her I would be a traveling nomad over the next month, so I did not need decorations, but did want to try the carving.
I also made eight of these indian corn napkin rings made from fusible beads to leave at the cabin. They look nice with my mother's Jewel T dishes we have there.
If I see a craft store while here in Huntsville, I think it would be fun to buy a large fake pumpkin and cut the top off, sit Jackson in it and take his photo! Why do I get the feeling that my world is going to revolve around this little fella?
I enjoy papercrafting, scrapbooking, photography, travel and sewing. My latest hobby is knitting. I have been married for 37 years to my college sweetheart and we have two grown children, two more children (added through marriage...our children's spouses) a granddaughter and two grandsons. I love to create artwork and share with my friends.
