We love to carve our pumpkins in this house. I try to stay out of it. Or I'll take over. So I am in charge drawing out the out line and the baking of the seeds and hubby helps with the carving.
Last year the girls didn't seem as interested so hubby and I did most of the work.
These are last years creations.

Me on my broom, oops I mean a Witch on her broom.
We never carved pumpkins when I was a kid.
Then when I moved out on my own at 16, I not only didn't have the funds for this but I lived in a basement apartment, so who would see it.
When hubby and I got married and rented a house I didn't even think of buying a pumpkin for Halloween. So what I did was make my own. It snowed that day, so I rolled a ball of snow, shaped it into a pumpkin and used food colouring to dye it. Then out of black paper, I constructed the face. I then rolled up a piece of green paper and used it as the stem. When hubby came home from work he said to me, so I see you picked up a pumpkin, LOL.
But he wasn't the only one who was fooled, as the kids came to the door for their treats, I heard the parents say, that's a neat pumpkin. It was the kids that replied, I think its made out of snow, LOL.
Well tonight we picked up our 3 pumpkins and are ready to carve them on Halloween. I wonder what they will be this year?
Today was a running around day. So nothing much happened. But tonight I started to clean up my scrap/craft room. Can you believe it took me over half an hour to clean up my desk. Yup, not lying. Maybe I should have kept that to myself?
I want to work on a mini with my Graphic 45 Alice in Wonderland Halloween paper. I love this paper and have been putting off cutting it up. So my plan is to make an album where you can see a lot of the paper. Maybe I should have got the 6x6 pad.
We will see what happens.
Hope you all had a good Friday and that your weekend is a creative one.
