Happy Halloween!

I had a little fun making this zombie. The askew pigtails cracked me up. There's a boy version too. You can get the patterns here. I had the yarn out earlier trying to crochet something, but that didn't work out. I'm all about repurposing.

Carving the jack-o-lantern was a bit less fun. Yuck, what a mess. I am in awe of those that can carve intricate designs into one-inch thick pumpkin walls. I wanted to do the throw up version, but I decided to roast the seeds since everyone likes them.

I did discover a cool idea this year. Cut the bottom of the pumpkin out for the light source. What an aha moment. The top stays nice and you don't have to reach in and scorch your hands to light it. Just sit your jack-o-lantern on a light source and voila.

Enjoy your Halloween. I'm off to make mummy dogs, baked bean larvae, spider deviled eggs, apple mouths, cheese fingers, and spinach dip barf. I have to do something to get that image of Matt Lauer as Pam Anderson from Baywatch out of my head.

Another Blogtoberfest down the drain. Thanks for keeping me company.


  1. That is such a cute zombie doll! Thanks for the link. Maybe my granddaughters need zombie dolls next Halloween. LOL

  2. Oh, and thank you for all your fun post for Blogtoberfest! I've really enjoyed reading along this month.

    Your menu sounds yummy - maybe?

  3. Love the zombies. Too cute! How brilliant are you to cut the bottom off the pumpkin instead of the top. Why have I never thought of that. Bugs

  4. Adorable! I have to make one or both of those dolls.

  5. That zombie doll is ADORABLE! I will be sure to check out the link for the pattern, so thanks for sharing that =-)
    Sounds like you had a fun Halloween, despite the strange vision of Matt Lauer, but strange visions are a part of Halloween, are they not??!? ;)

  6. PS: glad to have found you through Blogtoberfest! I'll be peeking in regularly - you've got a great blog! =-)

  7. Your zombie girl makes me smile. Love the pigtails!


I would love to hear from you. Comments make my day!
