We had a pumpkin carving contest this year. Each choosing our favorite and coming up with designs secretly.
|Unfortunately this might be the first and last pumpkin G2 ever does as she is apparently allergic to pumpkins because her skin developed a rash and swelled up. We are lucky it was nothing more than that and a benedryl helped.|
|My hub found a green pumpkin that was unexpectedly almost dayglo orange inside!|
|G1 was deep in concentration cutting the details of her pumpkin.|
|Here are all of our pumpkins carved and painted...tonight we will light them!|
|I am loving my pencial sea urchins!|
|G1 did the Mockingjay symbol from the book series The Hunger Games which is to be a movie next year!|
|My hub did a cyclops. He said the rind was really almost too hard and extremely thick to do any more detail without special tools.|
|G2 did a UFO flying sideways. It shows up better when it is glowing.|
|My pumpkin was so hard it resisted any attempt to cut through it with traditional carving tools. I really wanted to sculpt this into a Taichi but instead I decided to paint it leaving the cool outside coloring.|
This year we found the most beautiful colorations of pumpkins we have ever seen. Such cool variety!
|Another view of the pencil sea urchins.|
|She loves these books but she says they creep her out but she feels compelled to keep reading. Not sure about the movie it might be too upsetting.|
|I think this symbol looks great.|
What will you create today?
