truly outrageous

i don't know what came over me. on a whim friday night, i stopped by a pumpkin stand on my way home from work and picked up two beauts, destined for the knife.

i basically spent all afternoon sunday with various cutlery in-hand and this american life in-ear. on a bout of inspiration from some crafty blog or another (CRAFT? Instructables? Instructables via CRAFT?) i got out the good old speedball linoleum cutter (seriously, speedball: where would i be without you?) and ed roth's amazing book 'o acrylic stencils and had at it.

Did you like that beer? I've had that before and thought it was pretty tasty.

Hello, I was browsing Etsy this morning and saw something that looked familiar. Not sure if they're exactly the same, but thought you might want to know!
