Even Scary Ghosts Need Their Blankie

I am not really sure where the thought to make my pumpkin look like a quilt came from, so I will start from the beginning!  At work we are doing a pumpkin contest.  I thought about my hobbies and how I wanted my pumpkin to be about me!  I love blankets, being cozy, and HALLOWEEN! (its one of my favorite Holidays, I bet you can't guess the other?).  So began my quest to make my pumpkin into a Quilt!  If you look closely my pumpkin has some flaws.  I didn't sew the fabric on, but I think it definitely has character!  Here is how I best made mine.  You may find a better way that fits you, have fun with it and make it your own!
  • With wax paper mark the height of your pumpkin.
  • Trace down the pumpkin to make a cut out for the fabric.  Not all the pieces will fit perfectly, so use the cut out you made as your guide.  
  • With the cut fabric fray along the sides.  When glued on the Pumpkin it will look used!
  • I tried Mod Podge, but it didn't stick some of the shear fabric to the Pumpkin.  Instead I used a glue gun and it worked perfectly!  I cut the fabric as I went a long, not all at once.  This way you can make sure that each piece fits. (again the cut out is just a guide.) 

Gregg (my Hubby) had an extra Butternut Squash hanging around, so I made a ghost to fit the title!  Way cheesy but everyone at work thought it was cute!

   I would love to see how yours turned out, or any other fun decorating ideas you had for your Pumpkins!  Email me any time!

Small changes make a Big difference!

    We all have those moments in our life when we think about what our goals really are.  What do we want out of life?  Well this has been on my mind for months sinse my miscarrige, three months into the pregnancy.  What can I do to better my life?  What are my desires?  So I thought.  I want to be Healthy, Happy, and feel Fulfillment.  I was watching a great segment from Studio 5.  This segment really brought it to the table for me.  These things I can do daily for my health may be small things, but in a lifetime as I focus on these small things they will grow into a healthier me!

Check out this segment @ Studio 5, and think of other ways you can be a healthier you!
