Jack-o-lantern, 2009

October 27, 2009

I’ll miss this year’s annual family carving because I’ll be in San Francisco for the Guild of Bookworkers convention. I was a little bitter that they picked Halloween weekend, but on the other hand, San Francisco at Halloween could be interesting.

Anyway, I was happy that I got to carve a pumpkin tonight at a church activity. Last year’s pumpkin took me a couple hours to design and a few more to carve, so I’m proud of myself that I whipped this year’s puppy (or owl) up in about half an hour! (But only because Stephanie was ridiculously kind in that she scooped it out and then let me design and carve it–now that I’ve got pictures, I think I’ll deliver it to her so that she can enjoy it).

(Yep, I just so happen to have a box full of carving tools, which I brought for the cause). I shared–but I only let people use my tools if they would leave me with a shoe as collateral. Ha.) Oh–and you can see that I used the new craft punch that my mom gave me for my birthday as inspiration for the design.

    Some of your pumpkin-carving tools look very familiar….

    I took some things from the office to a pumpkin-carving recently too. Not the screw punch though.

    I shall have to remember the shoe tactic.

    Oh, I LOVE that you used all your carving tools! So awesome! I hope San Francisco was fun! Luke was there not too long ago for a convention and said it looked like a very fun place.
    P.S. I gave you a blog award on my blog!!

    Ha, the snow just happened–must’ve been a carry-over setting from last year. But it made me change my banner — I may not be blogging much anymore, but at least I’m keeping the banner in-season ;)
