How much can I complete in 50 days?

I've certainly gotten another building spurt going and enough ideas to keep me busy, most likely past the dead line... >=) (Pun totally intended!)

Right now I'm completely absorbed in my first ever ground breaker. I've been studying pictures and tutorials of other Halloween prop builders ground breakers (thank you PumpkinRot & Stolloween for such inspiring pieces of work), trying to figure out the best way of going about creating mine. I have a very particular image in my head of how I want him to look. Hopefully, I don't become so obsessive perfectionistic that I don't finish it! I won't let that happen; it's looking too good all ready to be locked up in the house, for no one to see. I'd love to turn out one or two more, but goodness knows what I'll have time for.

The other thing that I'm contemplating, is covering up some of my old foam pumpkins with paper mache and basically recreating them. Most of them no longer have steams, thanks to my lovely little demon cat, Zeus. He's also the cause of the said pumpkin's broken faces. I don't know how that will work out, but it's worth a shot.

Pictures soon.
