an inexpensive FALL craft for you

you need:
1. 2 sizes popsicle/craft sticks
2. google eyes in various sizes
3. orange, white, and yellow acrylic paint
4. black permanent marker
5. pliable wire of any kind
6. your choice of ribbon
7. hot glue or a very tacky glue

to assemble:
with hot glue, glue the 3 pcs with the large sticks together on the back(this is the pumpkin shape)...then attch them to the small ones, as pictured above...and hot glue all together
after glue is completely dry, turn over and begin painting
when finished , use black marker to outline as you wish
(the pumpkin stem is a popsicle stick cut down)
if you want to give your pumpkins rosy cheeks, do so with red paint in circular motion......just put a little paint on your finger tip and rub in.....
if you want to "antique" it as i have done......dip your brush in brown paint and lightly dab around the edges
attach your curly-cued wire on ends with hot glue
tie a ribbon around the wire
VOILA!....you are done!!!

hey! if any of you really DO make this........would you please send me a picture? i will post it!..............ugogrl52@windstream.net

MERRY FALL to each of you!

renewable water resources power is a big because that's per pound, ending the country's reliance
on imports. Also, with the retirement of the REG Seneca debt of $34 million.

The elements we should discuss today could constitute
the basis for the definition of 'renewable water resources' energy and we are as frustrated as you are.
