Pumpkin Carving

This past weekend I was supposed to carve my pumpkin that I picked up at Perry Farms. I didn't. Instead, I did other things like watch the Giants win the World Series (woohoo!) and take a special puppy dog to the dog park. With Halloween rapidly approaching I needed to carve mine soon, so that's what I did last night. Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures. Lucky for you, pumpkin carving last year looked remarkably similar to pumpkin carving last year...

Carving pumpkins last year looked something like this:


Here is my creation for this year:

My creation: The Haunted House
I modified my tools this time around and decided not to use the dull poking tool to map out my design, but used my Dritz seam ripper instead. Seriously, this was the single greatest modification I could have used used. Not only were the holes much smaller, but it allowed me a little more freedom when transferring the pattern. It was also significantly easier to use because it was so sharp. This will definitely be a part of my pumpkin carving tool kit from now on. Maybe next year I'll introduce some X-ACTO tools!
