To Carve or not to Carve


Or do we even bother in getting a pumpkin for Halloween this year? Looking back at the "pumpkin shots" from previous Halloween's , we really don't go all out since we live in flats and don't have either of the places where pumpkins often work best - a porch or a garden. When I was growing up we used to carve the pumpkins, putting a candle in it and sticking it outside - like everyone else...
We did try the year before last to have a pumpkin indoors - but the smell of pumpkin is a bit much in a small flat.

Instead of a real pumpkin we'll probably  have a go at some alternative ideas like papier mâché,  fabric or even bring these babies back out...


If I do decide to carve maybe do these?

I love going to Martha Stewart for last minute ideas...

Introducing ASA.BOT


I created this little guy for my baby nephew Asa (he turned one last month)... His first action figure!

It all started with this book I bought from a Japanese book store while we were in London celebrating Canada Day at Trafalgar Square... I made a few things from the book... some bunnies a little monkey for Peter a couple of kitty cats... I was toying with idea of making him a teddy bear from the book, but changed my mind and designed this felt robot named ASA.BOT!
ASA.BOT stands at 11 inches and he is on his way to Toronto...
