We carved a pumpkin yesterday :)
All Noah's design and most of his cutting, with a little help.
I love the color and smell of pumpkins.
Martha Stewart had some other pumpkin decor ideas on her website last year and I shared these then, but here they are again.
Use a drill to poke holes in a pumpkin. (after it's cleaned out)
Put a string of Christmas lights inside, poking the lights out thru the drilled holes. Cut a larger hole in the back of the pumpkin to pull the cord out...plug in...and that's it. So pretty! I want to do some of these.
You can also cut out shapes all over the pumpkin and light it with a candle. See the Charlie Brown zig-zag one? Love that!
If you haven't subscribed to Donna Downey's new monthly newsletter yet, you should. It's really cool :) She has it divided into sections where she shares ideas on organizing from her scrap space and also gives you a challenge to alter something in her "Trash To Treasure" section. You can subscribe on her website/blog here.
I'm going to work on rearranging Noah's playroom today, so I'm off to organize.
