Blue's Clues Pumpkin

My little guy came home from his school with a small - but perfect - pumpkin. :)

He immediately asked for a Blue's Clue Pumpkin. I wasn't sure how I was going to carve Blue onto such a small pumpkin, but I was able to paint it. He was excited & he even got to help.

On one side I drew Blue, then painted her in. On the other side, I drew Blue's clue paw print. After the little artist painted away on his side, I filled it in with blue glitter & outlined it with glow-in-the-dark paint. That should be a fun clue for trick-or-treaters!

It was a TON of fun. Go get painting! ;)

Love this site - wanted to share!

I just wanted to share that I found a site today that I might have a little crush on. Mainly because of the possibilities it offers. I am so excited, and can't wait to get to try out some of the fabrics they offer.

They have a blog & a website. Please check them out, then show me what you make! ;)

Pumpkin Carving Party!!!

Nothing quite says fall like gathering with friends and family to carve some big orange pumpkins! We also ate some festive fall food & finished the evening with pumpkin pie. Perfect!

I made my own owl pattern - and was pretty happy with the way it turned out. All in all - I was pretty impressed with every pumpkin carver's creation. Just wanted to share some of our pics. If you get in the pumpkin carving mood, please share your pics too!
