Pumpkin Cake

Last Saturday Eddie and I went to a friend's house and carved pumpkins. Since I had a pumpkin shaped pan from when I took a cake decorating class several years ago I decided to make a pumpkin shaped cake. Not, pumpkin flavored cake, but shaped like a pumpkin. I used a yellow cake mix and for the decorating frosting I used Pillbury white frosting in the small 16 oz tub. It worked out really well. The cake actually looked better than the picture. It's the second cake that I have made and decorated and I was quite proud of it, even though it had its issues. We're not talking about those, though.

Other than that, I've been working on making some more jewelry for my Etsy shop. I decided to give it one more shot before I give up on Etsy. I have used some genuine gemstones this time and what I hope is an affordable price. If I could just sell one thing, I would feel really good. I do so love to work with beads and make jewelry. It's just that I have made so many things that I don't know what to do with them all. I'm going to give some away as Christmas gifts, but that leaves a whole lot more that I haven't even post on Etsy yet. I've also made some book thong type beaded bookmarks. They are really fun to make and I love using them as bookmarks. They would make a nice give for someone that you are giving a book too and just tuck a beaded bookmark inside.

This afternoon I have to go to the regular dentist to see about a tooth that's been bothering me. It's been aching some and I think it's because it's a really old filling. I'm sure he will take an x-ray. The last time I had trouble with a tooth like this, I had to have a root canal. I'm thinking that's probably what's going to have to happen wiht this too. I just don't know. There is no way to even begin to judge what is going on with it. I don't even try, especially after that periodontist episode last year.
