I have been making, making for this upcoming market. Last year I made my first batch of pumpkins, eager to make more, I was having a hard time on the wheel closing up the tops without collapsing them (they are hollow on the inside) but finally I found my groove. Throw on the wheel, wait about 10hrs for them to firm up a bit then carve. They are slightly larger this year, but man they are just so cute! As I was carrying them upstairs from my studio to work on them by A, when I totally tipped the board and one splatted on the ground. Amazingly it added the best character, I thought it was a goner, it just goes to show you we’re all redeemable!
And fyi, I have totally been sucked into these two sites craft gwaker and poppytalk. Not that I have the time to actually be online or need to pin more ideas to my pinterest but check them out, so fun!
