Any time I've carved a pumpkin, I didn't really carve it. I usually had someone there to execute my idea. For example, two years, I had this idea to do an LA Tech pumpkin. The execution of the idea wasn't that awesome because my carving skills were lacking. Luckily, Jon was there with his man muscles to save the day. Sadly I can't find a picture of it, but I did find a few mini pumpkins that I painted in college.
I also found this picture of the pumpkin Jon helped me carve last year.
This year, I had no one to help me and very little time to actually carve the pumpkin, so I opted out of it. I decided to paint it instead. We were having a pumpkin carving/decorating contest at work, so of course I had to participate. My pumpkin wasn't a winner though, sadly.
Have y'all ever carved pumpkins before? What have you carved? Am I the only one that feels the struggle or did you have some difficulties too?
