Howe Pumpkin 2010

Carving a pumpkin is one of my favorite parts of Halloween - I love to create my own designs! What I learned from this year's creation:

- Carving hair is the BIGGEST pain in the world, and consequently, toothpicks can be a life saver
- What takes 2 minutes to draw on paper can take 2 hours to carve into a pumpkin
- Once you finish and light the candles all the work was suddenly worth it.

Without further ado, I present the Howe pumpkin for 2010!
