Thanksgiving

With the big thanksgiving dinner tomorrow night I worked on the place cards for the dinner table. I’m thankful we aren’t having a huge dinner :). ¬†I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving weekend. ¬†Enjoy too much turkey, watch too much football, and be too thankful for the amazing people in your life.

Loss of a Legend

Steve Jobs

“Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. ¬†Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. ¬†Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.”

I started off easy but am looking forward to some more detailed carvings this long weekend.  Thanks for checking it out!!

The final five.

43 pumpkins later and I have made it.  It was a tiring 30 days and it really tested my creative juices and discipline.  I am happy that it is over.  Thanks to everyone who check out my blog, the constant encouragement made it easier to keep going.  Tonight I leave you with the final 5 from Halloween 2010.  Until next year!  Happy carving!

Day 27!

Tonight Lindsey came over for a Halloween evening.  We started with a delicious dinner, followed by some pumpkin carving which was interrupted by home-made Caramel Apple making, then we returned finish our pumpkins of the evening.   It was nice to have a carving companion on day 27, running low on juice!  Almost there!

Halloween for Hunger

Tonight I had a lot of fun making two pumpkins for great cause.¬† A friend of mine is helping with the fundraising for an event called Halloween for Hunger.¬† It is a fundraiser in Langley that supports the local food bank.¬† I was asked to make a few pumpkins that I thought kids would like.¬† Needless to say I figured that the girls would really enjoy a Bieber fever pumpkin and who doesn’t like the Canucks…?
