Every year in my house, no matter how old I’m getting we have a tradition that pumpkin carving is a must. We as a family have been pumpkin carving ever since I was a little girl and it’s something that I feel can’t ever be broken as it just wouldn’t be right.
There’s nothing better than getting down and dirty, and by dirty I mean getting covered in pumpkin guts and pips… it’s just a time filled with laughter, competitiveness and everyone helping to create a pumpkin to beat the neighbours next door. If I’m being completely honest, I’m not amazing at carving into pumpkins especially by social media standards but I give it my best shot. Each year I try to set a goal to make each carveture that little bit better and hopefully this year I’ll forfill that goal.
Last year I brought a book called “Pumpkin Carving Kit” which contained 12 incredibly talented sencils which ranged from easy to that “seriously out my comfort zone hard”. But this year I decided not to go for the book and to go off my own imagination (let’s pray for the pumpkins) and see what creation I come up with.
Anyway, before the suspence gets too you as you want to see what I created so much, here’s mine & dad’s awful looking creations;
I’m very much looking forward to seeing social media bombarded with pumpkin photos as it’s my favourite thing to look through, some people’s creations never fail to amaze me. I love being inspired by them and getting ideas for future pumpkins. Your all so incredible, I get blown away by the talent.
I hope you all have a spookilisous halloween, eat lots of yummy treats and enjoy yourselves!
Sending tons of love and hugs as always,
