The Pumpkin lady: Crafting Joyful Memories

“Mom, can we carve a pumpkin?” Our son’s innocent plea ignited a magical journey—one that transformed my life forever. With a simple “Of course!” we embarked on pumpkin-carving adventures. Armed with a little kit, patterns, and sheer enthusiasm, I carved for family and friends. Then, out of the blue, Busch Gardens Williamsburg discovered my pumpkins and dubbed me “The Pumpkin Lady.” (Thanks, Larry King!)

Fast-forward two decades: I’ve carved for Oprah Winfrey, judged on the Food Network, and brightened Times Square mornings. But my heart belongs at home, surrounded by my hubby and our quirky black cat crew. Now, beyond pumpkins, I share crafty tips aplenty! From punch needle pillows to cross-stitch designs, we’ll sprinkle homespun happiness everywhere. And don’t forget the butterfly garden and our antics-loving feline herd!

But here’s my secret for a wonderful life: Relax, have fun, and ditch perfection. Imperfections? They’re our colorful brushstrokes on life’s canvas. So stitch, color, garden, cuddle, and laugh—no matter the outcome. It’s all part of our “perfectly” lovely journey.

Craft joyfully, Lisa B. The Pumpkin Lady
