My First Pumpkin Carving Experience

Don't judge me! Yes, I have carved out faces on pumpkins...but never have I actually done the whole pumpkin gutting, cleaning, carving, thing on my own. And aside from the same old toothy jack o' lantern grin that I free-handed on the pumpkins, then butchered later and wondered why it didn't come out right, I have never done anything else. Until this year. Punkin is older now and I wanted to do something different. Something a little more special. So I got a small pumpkin for her to decorate, and a large one for me to attempt my new challenge. I think I did a pretty darn good job if I do say so myself! :-)

If you are looking for some pretty awesome pumpkin stencils and art ideas, I found this great site with lots of ideas and templates!

And of course, we cannot forget Punkin's work of art!

Hope you all have a wonderful and happy Halloween! Have fun and be safe my lovely followers!

    Any plan on Halloween?
    Are you taking your daughter for trick-or-treating?
