Post Halloween Wrap-Up
I know I’m late posting about Halloween. Better late than never. Rather than NaNoWriMo, I’m trying to do art every day this month. Since I’m notoriously bad at these things, I promised myself that I wouldn’t beat myself up about it if I miss some days. Anyway, on to Halloween.
We usually have lots of trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood. They actually come in large groups in trucks, vans, and trailers. It’s probably a good thing I didn’t need to drive anywhere because I’m not sure I could have gotten out of the driveway. This year, I even ran out of candy way early, so no leftovers for me.
Chris had a link to fuzzy-headed pumpkins on one of her Friday linkity posts, so I had to give it a try. By the way, each Friday Chris has one of the best linkity posts around. Give yourself plenty of time to go through it. So I painted faces on my little pumpkins and then looked for hair. I have plenty of unspun fiber, but I could never get it working quite right. I ended up using yarn to make Rasta-headed pumpkins with some of my not so successful hand-spun yarn.
I also carved a pumpkin.
The one of the left is ceramic. The one on the right is the one I carved. It was harder to carve than I thought it would be. I had a few knife slips but nothing too obvious.
Once I ran out of candy, I went across the street where they always have an open house on Halloween to help them give out candy. I swear I thought I had bought enough candy but it was still a fun night.
