Trick or Treat!

A local shop is interested in selling my "boo" pumpkins, so I made a few sets tonight to bring over. I decided to do a solo design on a larger pumpkin, too, and this is what I came up with:

I'm so, so happy with it. It's pretty much what I envisioned in my head, but usually those things don't ever quite come out to expectation. I was going to have a little ghost in the mix, but I was afraid it would come out too blobby as a silhouette. I have one more large pumpkin, and I might do another one of these with different costumes, or a creepy silhouette of a haunted house and decrepit fence. We'll see.

Here are a couple details, so you can get the full effect:

All I have left to do is paint lettering onto one set of "boo" pumpkins and then spray all of them to seal in the paint. I have three more sets I can do this weekend, along with that other large pumpkin.

I'm also making and canning pickles and salsas with my mom this weekend. We're a bit behind with our Christmas gift canning. But if we do this, and then some apple and pumpkin products in a month or so, we should be in good shape. I'm generally behind in Christmas stuff right now, though. I finished half of Stef and Bill's gift, part of one of Ryan's, and part of one of Felicia's. I'm set to make one of John's next week.

Otherwise... yeah. I have a lot of crafting to do!
