What I do for fun on the weekend




The Marilyn Monroe pumpkin and Frankenstein (that only moments before looked just like a green Japanese sumo wrestler but now resembles the Hulk) were painted by me. The Coolest Ever pumpkin with the bats on one side and haunted house on the other was painted by my 8 year old artist daughter. My 13 year old (artist in denial) son also painted a very good pumpkin but wasn't finished tweaking his so we couldn't photograph it yet.

We've donated our paintings to a fundraising auction for a hearing/speech clinic for the Scottish Rite. I hope they sell for big bucks.

Oh wow, those pumpkins are amazing!!

My husband loves carving pumpkins, and he does really cool intricate patterns that he designs himself. I'll have to post pictures this year.

Again, wow!!

I can't get over that Marilyn Monroe pumpkin. I have never had any skills in the visual art department...I'd comission you to do a pumpkin for me, but I don't have the kind of cheddar needed to overnight the damn thing to NYC...

Hi "Said", I can just picture the UPS guy dropping the box, and wondering what that awful ooze was coming out the corner of the box! And how heavy!

Thanks, she's my favorite too.
