I’ve Got Pumpkins On the Belly

It’s been a hard year, I’m not going to lie about that. It could have been so much worse and that’s something that’s not far from my mind. I’m so very grateful for my spouse, my family, and my community of crafters who are there. With all the ups and downs I’ve gone through this year I’ve really taken the time to enjoy the Falloween designs I’ve made, because it brings me such joy. I love making these and I love hearing from people how they feel about them. I really hope that designs (like the Big Ol’ Pumpking or Smiling Pumpkins Pillow) make people happy because I think the world needs more happiness all over. Alright, got all that mushy stuff out of the way. I must be a bit emotional because my b-day is coming up (next month, can yo believe it?) and I’ve got so many feelings.
So… this week’s design is one I’ve shown off on Instagram for a while and it seems like she’s got more fans that I do! It’s gotta be those big eyes… or maybe the pumpkin? Who can say for sure but this is a cute design and I’m really glad I decided to do it. This is the third this year of the “Belly Design Amis” which also feature my Heart Belly Cat and Snowflake Belly Penguin. I don’t know why I like doing these but I imagine it’s because I used to wake up early on the weekends to watch the Care Bares Movie. Who can say? But I do know this design is fun and you can make it in a variety of colors (purple owls anyone?) or even add a face in puffy paint to really make the Falloween come alive. 😀 I’ve already got a couple ideas for a Winter version of the belly design ami but if you want to see something special, let me know in the comments!
Alas, this is also my last Falloween design. I’ve got 2 designs and a TSAP post for next month already planned and then we’re fully into Winter! So, see you next year my favorite designing time of year. I will miss you.
