Have Michael's gift card...will shop...that's my motto!
Even when I am there and they appear to be in the middle
of restocking...seriously, the shelves were bare!
FYI Mr. Micheal's whoever you are...bare shelves do not
induce commerce...you're just lucky that I am made of
better stuff than that! I will purchase...I will not be thwarted!
I wanted to buy some Martha stuff, you know because it's
so cool and all color coordinated and you know how important
it is to have all that cute crafting stuff just so you can make a
burn mark on it with your glue gun...or grab it with a painty hand!
Alas, there was nothing good to buy...sorry Marty, I won't be
helping you make your mortgage payment this month!

But I did manage to buy a few things...like cookie sticks and tiny
pumpkins...the sticks were meant to be wands...and the pumpkins
were going to be itty bitty dioramas, but either I am way too old
or those pumpkins are way too small, cuz it just wasn't working!

Then I got an idea...{I was eating a cinnamon roll...I find food
VERY inspiring! ;}

I just glued those little 'ol pumpkins onto those sticks...

and glittered them up...and VOILA! Pumpkin Pops...not to be confused
with BAKERELLA'S cake pops...mostly because mine are not edible...but
other than that their exactly the same! ;}
Just call me Freakerella!

I just thought they'd be cute stuck in a plant...in an arrangement...in
a wreath...wherever one puts a tiny pumpkin...you know, all those
nooks & crannies that simple cry out for a bitty pumpkin on a stick...
{hey, don't look at me...you came here of your own free will! ;}

Then all the sugar from that cream cheesy frosting laden cinnamon roll
kicked in...and instantly the plain pops were just not cuttin' it...I needed

Let the embellishment begin!

Now isn't that better...

Who among you would not benefit from a ruffled collar and a feather...I ask

This one sort of looks "bridal"...what would be the point of a bridal pumpkin
pop? I have no idea either...I just went where the Muse took me...{between
you and me, this is not the first time that I have wondered if she adds a wee
nip of that hard stuff to her coffee...but let's keep that on the down low}

Bling/steampunk...the badger special...all shiny brite! {sorry,
I had to get at least on Christmas reference in this post...
I'm annoying like that! ;}

Just silliness and falderal, I know this...but it keeps me from a life a crime...
among other things! ;}
