What’s In A Name?

Jayson and I have been naming all of our props.  Even the small ones.  Silly as though it may seem (and will get harder to remember all of our “children’s” names as we continue to add each year) it really gives meaning to something that you work so hard on for days or weeks (or months if you get lazy in between like me!)

I am honored to introduce you to Penelope….    Penelope Pumpkin.  Must have come from my love of Penelope Pittstop.

And all finished.  I’m not happy with the weird stalk, and Jayson thinks she needs a nose… but I’m ok with her being my first – I will practice a lot more this year!
