Gourd Crafting at the Pumpkin Patch Harvest Festival

This young lady would fit right in when Diane and I get together to craft! Total concentration. I love it!
If you are interested, I am simply sharing pictures from the Pumpkin Patch Harvest Festival Craft table that my sweetie and I hosted on Labor Day.
It is amazing to see what kids of all ages come up with - everything from a couple scratchy lines to some very nice artwork.
The other side of the gourd above. I would say this young lady has a future in art!
Two sisters and a brother! Guess which one the brother made! Boys do seem to go in for monsters.
This young man had a whole story to tell about his monster and who it ate and where it was going next and who was chasing it.... HE will most likely grow up to be a writer.
Love the finger nails! Don't you love the nails? I think purple might be her favorite color?
Her Dad sat and watched a while and finally could stand it no longer and grabbed his own gourd.
And her Mom worked around a sleeping infant cuddled up in it's carrier.
Lady bugs - everyone it seemed had at least one on their gourd!
OK this is cool! I was working on my Zentangle inspired art gourd Jack-o-lantern when a young family of three sat down to play. Dad, according to his wife, is artistic. He really loved the doodle idea. I sent him to Zentangle.com of course!
He immediately began drawing and doodling his own Jack-o-lantern face.
And then colored it! Isn't it beautiful? I love, love, love his doodled face.
Mom followed suit with her own version - in pink.So much personality!
And their daughter had her own ideas! Those little pupils crack me up.
Dad told me he was going to doodle designs on all their pumpkins this year and put them out on the porch. Meee tooo! They should last all month long.
Three artistic sisters...
and Dad. The girls were done and ready to move on way before Dad was! He got totally into his gourd art.
Another family - you can tell Dad is dreaming of South Sea Islands while Mom has Snowflakes on her mind.
Beautiful Dahlias and once sprayed with a little acrylic spray, the flowers will really pop.
Another artist - she spent a long time on her gourd design, blending colors and making sure the design covered all sides.
Because these were ornament size gourds, my sweetie drilled holes into every gourd top and strung them for hanging. When you realize that we went through about 150 gourds, that is a lot of holes! Awesome guy! And he is already looking forward to next year!
