I’ve been thinking that summer isn’t as much fun as it was when I was a kid. And then I got to thinking…what can I do about that?
So I thought about it. And I thought about it. And I thought about it some more. And then it came to me like a bolt out of the blue! Okay… It didn’t come at me that way at all. I was trying to figure out why my computer speakers would play background music, but not vocals or voices…and there it was! Right there on Facebook, from a site I liked only a couple of weeks ago. An elaborately carved watermelon.
The first video I found had music, but I lost is as I started looking up all sorts of videos about fruit and veggie carving. I did find that one though. And others that had my jaw dropping. From stunning creations like this one:
Obviously this isn’t a step-by-step tutorial, but it sure is pretty!
To something simple, yet elegant, like this:
This would be much more doable to make pretty place settings for small dinner parties
So why am I sharing all these videos? Because there are so many of them on YouTube! From watermelon baskets, to potato roses…and everything in between.
I think it would be awesome if we all did an activity like this. Since we live in different parts of the world, doing something as a group would be great. Everyone can send me pictures of what they’ve done, and I’ll feature them on my blog and Facebook page. Don’t worry. I’ll only use first names or initials, whichever you prefer.
This isn’t going to be a contest. There won’t be any prizes. It’s just a way for us all to have fun doing the same thing. Let me know if you’re interested.
And remember. You don’t have to use a watermelon. It could be an orange, apple, cucumber, kiwi, pepper…any piece of produce you like – and have the time to turn into edible art.
