Funny story here!

About how I created a creative pumpkin pillow.

My girlfriend gave me this candle, and I loved it. It smelled so yummy, just like being in the kitchen in the fall, sea salt pumpkin,  so yummy!

The jar was a brilliant blue ( my favorite color), and it had this lovely wood top carved into a pumpkin!

Suddenly the light bulb went on!

“I can create something using the lid of this candle,” I said to my girlfriend. She chuckled and said, ” what are you up to now.”

I can use this lid as a stamp.

And so the story began.

Off we went to collect a blank pillow cover.

And a few art supplies.

We needed acrylic paint in an assortment of colors.

I decided on a mossy green, terra cotta red, beige, and a goldenrod color.

In addition, we needed a paintbrush.

I painted some paint onto the pumpkin lid and stamped the pumpkins onto the pillow cover.

I repeated this process several times, with a pile of pumpkins going in different directions until I had the pattern I was looking for.

I love the fact that no two pumpkins were alike.


Thanks to my sweet friend  Kathy for picking the perfect candle that turned into a  beautiful pillow!

Just like Cinderella!

      Hello sweet Kerry, how are you?
      How is your family?
      Thank you for your sweet words of encouragement. To be honest, I cringe at sending e-mails.
      I never want to be a bother or send info that may not be interesting to people.
      So you were a true blessing to me today. I tend to get a few unfollows every week and just feel so bad.
      You know me, always up to something new, I can never just sit still.
      Are you still in the area? I would love to connect with you sometime.
      Wishing you a wonderful season ahead celebrating the birth of Jesus. XO
