He REALLY is Joyful! And my weekend!

At least now that he has arms, legs AND boots!
Haha, arent the boots adorable?

I also made up these angel ornies over the weekend!

Did anyone else carve pumpkins this weekend?
OMG, my thumb and fingers hurt SO bad from scrapping them out. I usually clean them out and Jason carves faces on. Im not good with a knife and a pumpkin!! Bella had a ball, Kin and Dom werent interested one bit!!

This is how Bella designed her pumpkins:)

I could only clean out 5, I think I may be allergic to them because my hands and arms were burning from it.

Im SO ready to start my Christmas decorating! I was almost tempted to start taking Fall decor down today but think Ill wait til the weekend.

Joyful turned out so cute with his arms & legs. I love stick legs & noses, too. Your angels are great, too. You are sewing up a storm, girl. Love the starry eyed pumpkin, too.

Aww they came cute Jenn! I took a few of my fall things and put them away, but I am having Thanksgiving here so I like to keep it looking like the harvest until everyone goes home that night - then watch out - Christmas starts! LOL

Cathy said...

Look at you! I love Mr. Joyful!!!! We also did pumpkins this weekend! They are itty bitty ones though! Gosh they were boogers!

Jazy said...

Wow they are all so cute Jenn!!! I just adore the Angel ornies you made!

Kindra said...

I love your new creations, Jenn! I'm so in the mood to make winter items but not looking forward to the cold weather. Yuk!

Umm, your snakes scare me. :)

Lisa said...

So cute. I love the snowman's legs and boots. The angels are adorable and the pumpkins look great. We didn't carve any this year for some reason.

I am just getting caught up with fall and now I'm itching to decorate for Christmas, too.

I blame it on whichever blogger has Christmas music. That really got to me. I listened to every song and even sang along. LOL

Karen said...

OMGosh your pumpkins are wonderful!
I just love the snowman...he made me laugh! Love his legs!!!

Good morning Jenn, I LOVE mr. Joyful. He turned out great! Hey I wanted to let you know I got my glitter at Walmart! In the scrapbook section was where I found it, Martha Stewart brand, they have it in packages of 3 or a big package of little containers with about 12-15 different colors. It is cheaper there than at Michaels. I think you did a great job sewing...don't sew over your fingers, pay attention. I did that once and had to go to the doctor to get the needle pulled out....youch! Hahaha, I guess I get easily distracted! Blessings,

CUUUUTE Pumpkins Jenn!
I miss having little ones home to carve pumpkins!
We usually carved the night before halloween!
Ahhh memories!

I have to tell you I admire you! Letting hubby have snakes in the house!!!!!
Oyyyyyy there is no way I could live knowing there is one in our house!
I get the heebee jeebees knowing they are out in our yard! I hate snakes!

Have a fun halloween!
Hugz, Dolly

Have a great day, Jenn!

I really like Mr. Joyful! Beth

Pumpkins are too expensive to carve anymore plus you loose all that yummy pumpkin for pies and goodies! I love the last one though, he looks like a prim pumpkin! lol

Terry said...

Awwww Jenn! Joyful is so cute! You did a great job on the joints.
Love Bella's pumpkins...she is going to be artistic like her mama.
You know I love the pumpkin with the star eyes!

HI Jenn
I love your creations!!!!!!!! I tried your primitive pantry cakes and they turned out pretty well. It was a great easy recipe to follow. I put pictures on my blog if you have a sec to take a look. Mine are darker. Did I do something wrong???? Thanks for the tutorial.

And you're not the only one ready for Christmas decorating....I've had that urge for a few weeks already! And ya know week...I'm starting on it! Jason is off for a week, and we're taking advantage of it! I have a party here on Dec. 5th and I want to have plenty of time to get everything ready!
