When a few bloggers got together & decided to have a
Primp your Pumpkin party, I thought,
"Great idea, I'm in!"
This may be a long post, but I think you will find it
Not having a real plan (as I never do), I gathered
Oh good heavens, what IS that in the corner of that photo?
Those wrestlers are bound & determined to show up on my
blog over & over again!
Anyway, I used the orange pumpkin & after spending
way too much time on my primping project,
I decided I hated it.
(sorry, no picture)
I thought, ok...maybe it's the orange that is throwing
the whole thing off. I then took everything apart
and decided to spray the orange pumpkin
with a metallic bronze spray paint.
That would surely be the cure!
I then glued all the embellishments onto
the bronze pumpkin.
No, it wasn't pretty at all!
while I let the pumpkin do the talking....
Is it a UFO? A crown for the Sultan of Brunei?
I don't have a clue, but I know that it's U-G-L-Y!
(look I made a rhyme)
I won't even begin to tell you the comments made
by my loving family about this pumpkin!
Yet, here I am...still determined to produce a primped pumpkin.
I will not be knocked down!! I am nothing if not persistent.
I shall overcome! I still have a white
pumpkin to use, right?
Well, I get it in my head that glitter would be a good thing.
So I glittered my pumpkin.
Nope, not pretty!
There are no words to describe how I feel.
Mr. Pumpkin...I'll let you do the honors....
I have to report, that I am now officially beat down.
Down & Out.
There is no way I am going to spend another
or hour primping another pumpkin!
Call me crazy, but I know when to quit.
I look forward to enjoying all your primping and I promise
not to make one snarky comment about your beautiful primped
pumpkins even though mine were epic fails.
