    Halloween

    I enjoy carving a pumpkin with my grandson at Halloween. We put happy faces on them  and when were done we put a candle inside to light it up. The fresh smell of pumpkin is aromatic. I also like to put them on my stairs to decorate my yard in October. I add a scarecrow to...

    Always Have.

    I've been carving pumpkins for Halloween for as long as I can remember. Now that I'm older I can do patterns that require more skill and patience. I can't wait until it's time to carve my pumpkin this year.

    I carve them for parties and fill them with stuff (watermelons) or the pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns for Halloween. I love to be creative and make things or do logos for businesses. It's a challenge and just fun. Oh but during the last one I did slip with the knife and into my...

    A Hidden Talent

    I have decided that pumpkin/watermelon carving is my talent....because otherwise, I am completely talentless.  Ever since I was small I loved carving jack-o-lanterns.  Then once the Pumpkin Masters patterns came out, I was going crazy trying to master the difficult...
