3xR 42: From The Deep

We get a little crazy over Halloween around here. With two creative types in the house there is nothing better than an entire day devoted to imagination run wild. This year we decided on our first couples costume. Here I am smirking about the latest man I lured to the icy depths while the ghost of the unfortunate pirate vows revenge behind me.

Every mermaid, evil or otherwise, needs to accessorize. So a few days before our Pumpkin Carving Party I created this sweet little brooch using scrap copper, silver bits melted into balls, and the silver band from a scrapped ring design for the pin. Really, this brooch played no part in the demise of the unlucky pirate.

Then I pulled out the creepy dolls, made some skeleton trophies, and invited some seriously creative folks over.

Check out that 1st place pumpkin inspired by Poe! Congrats Jill!
