This weekend I started a dangerous crafting trend (as evidenced by my subsequent forays into interior decorating…a story for another time) when I bought four mini pumpkins expecting to slap on some paint and glitter and call it a day. What followed were nearly six hours of finely-tuned Halloween prep. (Yay unemployment!) All materials were found in the depths of my art chest, left over mostly from past Christmas gifts and middle school projects. Gotta love impromptu Michael’s splurges and an ever-present supply of glitter (it really should be my middle name). Still debating whether or not to actually put the pumpkins on my front porch on the 31st for fear of grubby little candy-grabbers knocking one over.
