Carving up a good time

This weekend Whole Foods had such an assortment of pumpkins.  If I carve pumpkins this year, I am certainly going to break out the power tools as found in This Old House magazine [the article isn't online yet so I posted the magazine pages below].  I much prefer creating patterns in my pumpkins to scary faces.  These remind me of a design I did in college which won the pumpkin carving contest in our studio.  Yes, I am hanging on to that victory because it was the first time I won a contest, and since I was a nervous first year design student, it sort of validated my decision.  For my design I scored and cut tons of lines and dots creating lots of rhythm and repetition.  No pictures fellow interior classmates threw all the pumpkins off the balcony late one night.  I wish I would have been there for the stress reliever!

Pretty good excuse to break out the power tools!  Maybe a power tool happy hour is in order.
