smashing pumpkins

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!
