Mummy Pumpkin

I have always loved to draw and paint but I didn't really throw myself into it until after I had my first son.  I wanted to be a stay at home mom and at the same time be able to decorate the new home we had just purchased. I taught myself how to use power tools and began to build furniture which I would paint and sometimes sell.  What was once a hobby became a new part-time career which I feel so blessed to be able to do.

  2. Hot glue eyes to pumpkin. Cut four more pieces about 4" X 6" and fold lengthwise. Cover the top and bottom of each eye in a diagonal so you can see a little of the eyes peeking out at you. Allow to dry.
