tired of the same old thing

Did anyone catch my "The Nightmare Before Christmas" reference in this post's title?

I'm not one for themes, so Halloween isn't my favorite holiday. I usually put on a cute outfit I would normally think was too flamboyant and call it a costume. I can't remember the last time I didn't end up as a hippie or a celebrity.

I also hate scary things. Like, really, really hate. I'm currently traumatized from seeing a commercial for Paranormal Activity 3. I won't go into details. Just more of a reason for me to not get all uppity about Oct. 31.

Because of my reservations about the holiday, I don't normally decorate or throw myself into things surrounding Halloween. This Martha Stewart project, however, has convinced me to change my ways. I am heading out right now to get supplies and make some of these adorable glitter pumpkins. I'm feeling two oranges, and a pink... and maybe a purple. I'll let you know how it goes and maybe post some pictures.

P.S. This picture was snapped by someone and posted to Apartment Therapy and the comments on the page suggest that it's Sarah Jessica Parker's stoop! Even more incentive to get my craft on. I'm doing it in my parents' garage though. You know what they say about glitter...


  1. your pumpkins are perfect

  2. I have been wanting to make glitter pumpkins since I saw that Martha Stewart tutorial not too long ago. They're just so pretty!
