my favorite pumpkin is an apple .... and i'm having a blog contest .... yippee, zippy, hooray


i love pumpkins ... but i particularly love them UNCARVED .... i like them whole ..... i like not being the one to deal with the pumpkin guts ...... julia is reading over my shoulder and just said " i think pumpkin guts are fun" ..... we DO carve pumpkins EVERY year at allison's pumpkin party ....but, my druthers would be THESE fabo face bits ..... that are just like mr. potato head bits ... but made for a pumpkin...i.e....very pointy so you can get them in ..... i bought one set and all these pieces came in the set .... i thought it would be three pumpkins worth ... but i was wrong ..... that's why we have an apple too .... tra la la and trick or treat ......


this is one clock i finished today .... rah ..... luckily you can't tell that i ran out of batteries, so this one isn't quite working yet .... it is on my list of things to do thought... buy batteries ..... tomorrow ...... my list of things to do to get ready for marist is HUGE ... but hopefully all doable tomorrow .... i got LOADS done today ... including picking up my BANNER .... i am SO pleased with it!!!



and this is my fourth clock of the week ..... now i've done two dominos, a scrabble, and a marble clock.... and i have a spades clock drying ..... just need to put the findings on after it dries ...well, it's surely dry by now ..... i just have to take the time to do it ...... hopefully i'll sell one or two this weekend ... otherwise, all my kids are getting groovy clocks for christmas .....

i also picked up my prints ..... i need to sign them, number them, stuff them into cellophane with a cardboard dooda .... and put in my bio ..... note to self ... print out some bios .....
oh, oh, oh ......
let's have a contest .... i JUST thought of it this instant ...... i was rhetorically going to ask how many prints you think i'm going to sell .... but i'll SEND you a print, personalized, signed, numbered .....if you are the closest guess ..... yippee .....
that made me happy to think of ......
ok .... i have five print choices .... originally fifty of each, though i do have less than that of some since i've sold quite a few ..... so your guess should be less than 230 ...... i need to sell ten to cover the cost of my booth ..... so .....
pick anywhere between 10 and 230 ..... you could guess less than 10, but then you are either a pessimist or a cynic and i don't want to send you a print!!! my contest, my rules!!
ok .... contest closes saturday at 4....that's when the show ends .....make sure i have your email to contact you in case you win .....
on your mark, get set, guess........

35!

Good luck!

Fun pumpkins! Cool clock numbers/letters/objects! You are so creative! Who ever would have thought to spell the number words out with Scrabble tiles? That alone should put you in the Hall of Fame for Artist!
