With Halloween getting closer, I've been thinking about fun ideas for cards and our carved pumpkins this year. Last year we had an enjoyable time carving pumpkins. DH maintains that his looked like a 5 year old carved it. I tried to tell him that it just takes time and patience to get them to turn out wonderfully. Even then the pumpkin may have a mind of its own and not cooperate.
I experimented with leaving some of the pumpking flesh intact, but still having the light shine through. The process was very time consuming, but I think the end result of the K was worth the time and cramps in my hand.
Feel free to share you favorite pumpkin memories!
