Made some art and a friend

I've been doing a lot of jumping from blog to blog entering contests. Sometimes I see gorgeous blogs... and sometimes I see ones that could use just a little help. Yesterday I saw one that needed a little love... so without trying to be a jerk, I sent off a message on facebook to the blog owner and offered some assistance. She gratefully accepted and I come up with something a little more fitting for her blog, and what I thought her style was.

She loved it of course and had it up on er site before I had time to read my email! I made her an over-sized button and what I like to call a landing image and sent them both off so she could continue to brand her blog. Who's next? I'd love to help out some other bloggers and maybe paying it forward will pay me back in the long run! Wouldn't it be great if I could do this to pay some bills? lol Anyhow... check out my new design live on the blog of Savannah Miller

Pumpkin time

Got some foam dollar store pumpkins... Time to make a mess.
They're not very big, but they'll do just fine for what I have in mind.
Cutting the eyes is easy with a paring knife. It also shows you how small they really are.
Once the eyes were done it was time to figure out a mouth.
To plan it better, I drew the mouth on the pumpkin. Since it's going to be painted when it's done, it didn't matter if I strayed from the original line as I carved.
After carving everything, I hastily gave the edges a dark base coat. It didn't have to be perfect, just something to cover up the stark white foam look that was everywhere.
Then, I played around with ideas for painting.
As you can see, my first pumpkin got the raggety andy treatment... or maybe Dia De Los Muertos... either way, it turned out great. As it gets dark, I'll be putting a glow stick into the small hole I made in the bottom so it spooks the dog. Should be fun!

Oh so pinny

Have you checked me out on pinterest?

I tend to gather the goofy stuff I find on the web and pin it to the boards there.

I wish I could figure out a way to get it to feed to the blog...

The end result

I leave it to your imagination


I'm waiting for the chocolate to melt. So I found some pretty decorations to put on them. I should be able to just dip them in after I have them coated... If the stuff ever melts....

Here we go again...

Time for the real batch of cake pops.

Got about 75 with sticks and another 20 or so without.

There's still 3 left from the first time, plus 2 that I mixed butterscotch liqueur in...

I ttarted my check list...

___ Mother of the bride fastening the bride's necklace
___ A close up of the bride's shoes peeking out from under the dress
___ Bride looking into a mirror
___ Bride looking out window
___ Bride and bridesmaids putting on makeup

Here's a shot of the decorations I've made... yes... made. I'll have more shots for you soon!
