    Cute pumpkin. I usually just make faces, but once my husband learned he could use his powertools he suddenly became our pumpkin artist (sigh)

    I took a really untraditional route this year with my pumpkins and decorated them using fabric, glitter, and flowers! (http://morefruitplease.wordpress.com/2011/10/24/fall-diy-decorations/) They came out very pretty and feminine. I’m so in love with them, that I don’t know if I’ll go back to carving pumpkins anytime soon!

    I like it! I always carve the same old faces, but I’d like to try to do something different this year. I need to get on the whole pumpkin carving thing…I can’t believe Halloween’s on Monday!

    I’m not creative in the slightest, but my hubs is an artist and has carved amazing pumpkins. He has a slight obsession with the Mona Lisa and has actually carved it on a plastic pumpkin. It’s incredible!

      I’m jealous of those skills. I have none.

    You should try Tommy Knocker’s Maple Nut Brown Ale. I’m from Colorado and can get it on tap, but the bottled version is also very good.

    Your pumpkin came out great! I have no artistic skills. My husband showed me a pumpkin “carving” app on his phone, and I couldn’t even do that!*

    I love your pumpkin idea! I’m usually very traditional when I carve a pumpkin – and go for a standard face.

    Hey I found you via Google Reader, but I just wanted to give you a quick tip when carving pumpkins.

    If you print out a design, and tape it to your pumpkin, you can use a thumb tack, push pin, or the like, to push into the pumpkin to give you an outline of what you’re going to cut. This way you won’t have to worry about the paper moving and realigning things up. Also, it gives you a better idea of what the finished product will look like before you start cutting.

    I think your 2011 design is a welcomed change from the standard jack-o-lantern face, although you can never really go wrong with your old pumpkins!

    Happy Halloween!
