September 2019

It is that time of year again !! I rarely enter competitions online just because I do not have that much interest in social media and most of the time online voting requires a very active social media presence and following. However, Welburn Gourd Farm https://welburngourdfarm.com

posted their information about a Gourd Halloween contest I decided to enter this Halloween Gourd. He was fun to create using a gourd, cutting it, cleaning the inside, painting with acrylics and using some yellow tissue to cover the openings from the inside and adding a light in the back, so yes, he lights up too. I made the banner with paper and used a Martha Stewart punch for the letters. Here he is below – glowing !

If you want to see the entries and hopefully vote for my Halloween gourd I will post the link here when it is online . Ü

Above are a few egg gourd ornaments that I just completed. I will have my ornaments at three locations this year : Eau Gallery and Fifth Avenue Art Gallery in Eau Gallie and of course at the Beyond Useless Boutique in Sebastian. I have a few new designs this year and I will also be posting on my Instagram page as they are completed.

Thanks for visiting my page ! Leave a comment or question for me Ü
