I’ve been in a crafty mood lately and when I saw some really cute painted pumpkins on the cover of the October Family Circle Magazine, I decided what the hell, why not?
For me painting a pumpkin is about 2,430,872 times easier than carving. I am really good at digging all the goo out from inside once the lid has been cut, (and it’s kind of fun) but carving? No way. I’m pretty sure I would cut a finger or three off since I am rather prone to knife wounds.
Of course when one thinks of crafts one wants to do, then one must think of all the fun things one must buy to create said crafts! I think deep down buying things is the only thing I never get sick of on earth. I will buy ALL THE THINGS for a hobby I get interested and then as soon as I have everything I need, I lose all interest in that project. Story of my life.
But back to pumpkins.
So what I needed was pretty simple. A. Pumpkins B. Acrylic paints and C. Paint brushes. I got everything I needed, except for pumpkins, at Michaels.
