I found a cool idea at Design Sponge for pumpkin carving. (http://www.designspongeonline.com/2010/10/diy-project-janices-illustrated-pumpkins.html) I tried it out and I'm pretty pleased with the outcome even though I didn't have any of the necessary tools and my hands were in pain after all the work! It was a wonderful weekend. Why can't weekends be longer?!
