Pumpkin Sculpting time!!!!
Wheeeeee! This year, I was inspired by the food network...they are having a SHOW tomorrow Sunday the 26th with 4 WONDERFUL pumpkin sculptures, and I wanted to try! Of course, I have no I did this with a SPOON and a pearing knife! Sheeeeeesh! They use tools for clay sculpting which I may go to Michaels to see if they carry them! Anyways, this was great fun and I enjoyed it! Remember, I am just trying because it looked fun! To me this was more interesting than just carving like usual! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!! You try and let me know if you do! Happy Haunting!

Amber and I went to the Tattoo Convention in Milwaukee yesterday! It was a long and fun day at the Wyndham Hotel. I took my design with me and after meeting lots of tattoo artists, I had a young man named Clynt Costley from Taboo Tattoo in Dallas,TX do my tattoo! I have worked at Martino's since I was 14, making Chicago Style Hot Dogs and my sweet Mary is the owner. She survived Breast Cancer(Pink ribbon) and is now battling Ovarian Cancer(Teal Ribbon back side) so I got this tattoo in honor of her taking me on as a young kid to work and over time becoming like a second family to me.Clynt did a great job of bringing that hot dog to fun life with all the condiments too.....and the ribbon with Mary's name to honor her! I love it and it's above my right ankle. Just a super job and I have made so many of these hot dogs.....this one looks good enough to eat! :0) I think Mary will think it is hilarious too! I cannot wait to show her! I will let it heal first so it looks it's best! By the way, a Chicago style hot dog is a Vienna all pure beef dog, nestled in a steamed poppy seed bun with mustard , relish, onion cubes, tomatoes, pickles and sport peppers! I skipped the peppers, because the tattoo would have needed to be larger to have a clear view of all the greens...and this was large enough for me! Ouch! Hehehehe! (It is my 3rd tattoo and I am actually grateful that they hurt some.......or I fear I would LOTS MORE!)
