Ahhhh.... the long awaited day! We harvested our pumpkin yesterday and I was so excited. One would have thought I had grown a 1000 pounder, I was so proud!
So now she sits on the porch awaiting some of the smaller pumpkins, in the patch around our deck ,to finish turning orange. It has been such a thrill to watch the pumpkins grow and even my honey(in the picture) helped after he got over the shock that I had put the seeds down near the deck!

Simple Halloween Tags

I have been in a Halloween mood for about a month! Typically, I start to feel " Halloween in late July! It is crazy, but I am an October baby so I guess that is why I want to "rush" the season! Well, now it is here and it is time to start making some fun crafts and treat bags! I just LOVE to make treat bags! I made these very simple tags for my other Etsy shop and you can whip some out too! I used vanilla cardstock from A7 cards to punch my tags ( I can't believe how this was so similar to manila tag paper) and stamped the images from Little Yellow Bicycle stamps from last season. I used my favorite chalk inks for the images. They turned out great and it was such an easy project!

Nearly Done

Here she is...nearly done! I LOVE this pumpkin and I can't wait to take it from the vine. I am trying to be patient though, just a couple more weeks! We have had a lot of fun growing and watching the pumpkins grow this summer. The weather is changing here in Ohio and I think the pumpkins have pretty much stopped growing, so soon I can take them off the vine and move them to the porch! Can't wait!
