Pumpkins

I have had the opportunity to have a friend come over and work on art. It is so much fun to work along with another creative person. I feel like I have gotten quite a bit accomplished too. These 4 pumpkins are almost ready to put in the shop. Yippie! Can't wait to finish them and get to some of the painting projects I have on my list.

I'm also helping Sloanie with her big reading project at the moment. She chose to make a game that had to do with her book. I have cut all the squares for her (didn't want her to use my cutter) and she has made the most adorable drawings to go on the board. The book she read was Thimble Summer. It is a very sweet story. I think I enjoyed it maybe even more than she did. I will post some pictures of the game when she has finished.

Gotta go. 5:20 comes awful early & I feel like I'm getting a sore throat. Yikes! Hope to post the finished pumpkins soon. Oh & please pardon the dust around here. I'm in the middle of making a Halloween banner, just have to put it up in the AM. I do so love these Halloween colors don't you?

Adorable Jacks!
Oh, I miss doing fun creative projects with my kids. Now they're too big and very rarely let me help. My boy, who's 14, assures me that when he has kids he'll live near us so I can be the best grandma ever :) Seems kinda funny when I know so many people my age that are just now having kids.

I love your pumpkins. They are adorable.

What a great idea to make a game from a book. Sloan has mom's creative talent. Can't wait to see the completed game.
