Pumpkin Stack

Fall has always been my favorite season....the crisp air, the vibrant colors, spicy flavors all invoke a nostalgic feeling and a promise of the holidays just ahead.  WELL....since none of that is really present here in sunny Hawaii, I decided to do my fall pumpkin project in very neutral colors.  All my pumpkin decorations are black, white and green so this fits right in.  I actually like this color scheme...for this year anyway and I can always change it up next time with some paint, paper or decoupage!  It is the first year I actually put out fall decorations here, so that is a feat in and of itself ;0).

Quirky Bee Girl

This is a project I made for yet another class while I wait for my love to come home.  This is my version of a bumble bee girl, but instead of a Halloween costume, I had in mind the little bumble bee girl from an old video/song called no rain.  When I saw Christy Tomlinson's bee girl I immediately thought of that old song.  Maybe it appealed to me because I have always felt a bit out of place.  I WAS the chubby girl in a dance costume with all my skinny friends as a girl and as a woman still find myself constantly kind of on the outskirts of what so many seem to naturally excel at.  The older I get the more I think that my son may have gotten his Asperger's from ME!  At any rate, the one place I fit perfectly well is in my home with my immediate family.  I am very content with that....and REALLY look forward to my husband's return which I am hoping and praying will be on time and soon!  My world is just better when he is a part of it.
