The Saint Paul Art Crawl
My favorite season is fall, for lots of reasons! But the main reason is my favorite holiday, Halloween. The one night of the year I can really dress up and be something else. What's not to love about that? Haunted houses are romantic... and decorating the house can be fun and amusing. Here's what I'm putting together for this year's Halloween decor, PUNKins!
Here's what you need to start making your very own Punkins.
1) Gourds or small pumpkins
2) Studs of your liking that have the pointed tabs to secure them to your punkin
3) ribbon or string
I bought my gourds a the farmers market and picked up the pictured string/ribbon in the clearance section of Michaels. The studs I bought a long time ago from Aliexpress.com which is like a wholesale eBay type site where you can purchase items in bulk at cost. Everything comes direct from China however so you will wait 6-8 weeks for delivery. Worth it if you have the time I think I only paid $2.00 with shipping for 1,000 studs.
4) Imagination and a design that is simple to follow.
Once you've mapped out your design go ahead and start assembling your Punkin. It should be easy to push the studs into the gourde to secure ribbon or just to embellish the gourde. I'd love to see your creations!

I worked with Elle Halls of Nouvelle Design Studio for my business profile picture (used for LinkedIn, email, website, business cards, etc.) and she was amazing! She really listened to what I wanted, and made me a part of the process, stopping many times throughout the shoot to show me how the photos were looking. What I thought was going to be a "business errand/chore" ended up being a lot of fun! I highly recommend using Elle for your photography project.
Excellent experience. Elle was able to coach out the "model" in me and provided many shots I can pick from. She went well above and beyond me expectations and the final product is excellent.
Working with Elle was wonderful! I was doing a fashion shoot and it was so fun! She's very nice, funny, and professional, the shoot went like that! She has a very keen eye and did wonderful work! Very happy with my photos. Thanks, Elle!
I love the photos of myself and my daughter. We were given excellent direction so we could get the best shots. I couldn't be happier with the results! I highly recommend booking a session for any type of photography you are looking for!
