Using My Light-Box + More Jack O'Lanterns!

I was planning on doing another "This Week @ The Bazaar" post... but honestly it has been one of those scatterbrained weeks. I have been working on more jack o'lanterns along with more candies... and still planning some new items. But more on that later! I am currently listing a few more jacks. Take a look! All of my images today were taken with the aid of my home-made light box. It's amazing what a little foam-core and tape will do! :) As always, these jack o'lanterns can be found in my Etsy shop, HERE.

I once again made white and green jack o'lanterns... but I am starting to miss orange. So... I will most likely make some orange jack o'lanterns soon! :)

And as for my light box... I am loving it more every day! It is a but tricky getting the colors right- today a lot of the images came out kinda blue... but I don't really mind it.

It is so much fun coming up with all of the faces for these! I try to think of what I would actually carve into the pumpkin if it was real. Now that I think of it... it's been a few years since I carved an ACTUAL pumpkin! :O

These last four jacks are "medium" size. The small pumpkins above all measure less that an inch wide, but these mediums are a little over an inch. I am also working on large pumpkins that will be around an inch and a half.

If you would like to purchase any of these little guys, you can check out the Autumn 2013 section of my Etsy shop HERE

I have also been working on candies... still... See, I have a good bit of patience but sometimes I can only take SO MUCH. Haha! The candy is taking so long to get a lot made up because of how time consuming it is! Here is a little preview of the candies I have been working on. Give it a click to see it up close!

In this little collage, I have gold foil-wrapped chocolates, Halloween themed saltwater taffy, jawbreakers, small packets of gummy worms, caramel creams, and candy corn... and some spooky gummy body parts!

As for the candy I am working on right now... I want it to be in small portions like one would be giving out to trick-or-treaters... which means INDIVIDUAL WRAPPERS. So far I haven't had TOO much trouble, especially since I spent so much time last year experimenting. I am hoping to have a full post on just candy soon.

Well, that's it for today! I hope you enjoyed seeing the fruit of this week's labor as much as I did making it! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. My gosh, Blake! Your pumpkins looks great, but the jackolanterns are so amazing! :D The candies in their packs looks so realistic!

    Your lightbox works so better than mine! I think I will redo mine. ;) Great work, as always! :D

    1. Thank you so much, Karine! :D

      I think the secret to the light box is to still use natural lighting!

  2. OM NOM NOM *eats all your candy* :D

    1. AHAHA! Feel free! I can make more :3
