Sparkly Pumpkins, Part II

I could not stop with just one sparkly pumpkin. 


Now, I have a whole centerpiece of sparkly pumpkins!


As often happens with glitter, a little (or a lot!) was also stuck to me.
I decided to think of it as magical fairy dust and danced off to the local Texas Department of Public Safety office.  You may recall, from an earlier post, my concern about failing the vision test for my driver's license renewal.
With a little bit of magic, a bundle of good wishes from faithful friends and kind readers, and a whole lot of God's grace, I passed!
It is a small step on my road to recovery, but a big step on helping me still feel somewhat nomal.  While I still cannot drive too many places, I will at least be prepared for the day when I can!

If you wish to make sparkly pumpkins of your own, my inspiration came from here.
I used artificial pumpkins and gourds with MS Fine Glitter in Fire Opal and Copper.

Hi Jan!
Oh I'm sooooooo happy you passed the test. I just know in my heart that your eyes will be well again and all will be ok. This was the first step. Keep happy thoughts about perfect eyes and vision. Your pumpkins are so pretty and I think the glitter held a little extra magic in it. ;)

YAY!!! Glad you passed! Daniel would call your glitter "pixie dust" and if it didn't work to pass the driver's license test, at least, with the help of Tinkerbelle, you could fly where you needed to go! ;)

I am so delighted you passed your test... words are inadequate to express the gratitude. I need to show Paige this site to add to her list of projects for her gourds.

Jan, I had not realized when you posted the first sparkly pumpkin that you had made it. I love the collection!
So glad that sparkly fairy godmother dust sprinkled you! (((HUGS)))
