I recently made some custom pumpkins for Everyday with Rachael Ray Magazine and the issue is finally on the stands! The pumpkins I made are sort of crazy but hilarious.

The pumpkin burger made entirely of candy and a cocoa crispy treat patty.

Chalkboard paint and chalk - my personal favorite.

Drawn silhouette, wild painted faux bois, stenciled gold polka dots and some fun solids.

I just saw that the chalkboard pumpkins were featured on Poppytalk today, which is incredibly fun.

Here are two of the costumes from a Halloween DIY story I did for Woman's Day, also on the stands now! This is really something for the parent who is willing to sacrifice comfort for being the life of the party.  Plus, when baby gets tired, you can take off your empire state building and carry the baby home in the box! You can find all the DIY instructions here for this and other costumes I worked on with my partner in craft, Kristine Trevino.

I also spotted my dog Gigi is back on the Rachael Ray site in the Elvis costume I made for the magazine a couple years ago. You would not believe the quantity of snacks we went through for that shoot. She's a good girl!

Hi! :) I stumbled across your etsy shop while doing a search as I was listing an item. I am just in utter AWE of your talent! Your shop is beautiful, and the things you make and art you draw so cute!
