I bought some gourds from a vegetable stand last year (had no plans for them). Then came the winter and I was stuck in doors for a week and began painting the gourds I had stored away. I was hooked and now paint, carve, and burn them. I tend to lean toward a southwestern theme most times. But I love do int it and have been accepted in my first craft fair this coming November.
