I was hoping for some crafting time this afternoon. I guess I should be more specific. I was hoping for some cardmaking time. But we figured it was probably the best time to carve the pumpkins for Halloween, so I thought I would show you why there's no card here today.
This is the traditional annual picture (See this post for some past photos). Struan carved his own pumpkin for the first time - and added red acrylic paint (such a crafty (if slightly gory) boy! lol!). Kate's pumpkin was based on the 3-eyed aliens from Toy Story - it's kind of hard to tell from this photo, but I did my best.
But there were some casualties along the way - my favourite kitchen knife snapped, as did one of the little pumpkin carving knives that look (and are) so cheap, but work so well! There were no human injuries, though, so that's a relief! Here are the helpers at work.
Now for the indoor work - Kate wants to dress up the candy bars we'll be handing out as ghosts, so that will be the next project. We have the prototype ready and I will show you the results once we're finished.
