Pumpkin Carving

'Happy Face' at night.

My hubby carves a pumpkin every Halloween.
First he draws a face on the pumpkin with a pencil.

This year it was a design I drew from a photo I'd seen
in an ad. Last year's pumpkin was his original design.
You can see it on my side panel of my blog.


He carves it with a paring knife. No special tools, altho this year we
considered buying them but didn't.

Here is the finished pumpkin. I named it 'Happy Face'.


Here is 'Happy Face' all jazzed up.
You can buy this photo as a card,
print or poster at Red Bubble.

He's completely gorgeous. I'd love to do that here but those pumpkins are upwards of $30 in the shops at Halloween time here in Australia.

Happy Halloween. I've given up on carving pumpkins myself, but I love looking at the piece of art that you've created.
