It was the daddy-daughter pumpkin carving with Olive at school. Of course I needed to complicate things.
How about instead of carving the pumpkin, you make it look like a spiderweb with seed beads and pins?
I drew the spiderweb the night before, following the natural indentations, made a little wire black widow, and showed Ryan and Olive what to do.I asked Ryan when he came home if she was embarrassed about having such a unique pumpkin. He laughed and said she LOVED it. Not only did she enjoy doing it, but our little social butterfly attracted an army of little assistants.
Maybe if I had a whole crew of Martha Stewart employees we could have finished it.
Or maybe we'll try it again next year, and start in September.
