Pick a Pumpkin Pretty Please

One of the first things I think about when it comes to Halloween is carving pumpkins.

When I was younger, it seemed like we carved a pumpkin every year, but sadly, I don't believe Mark and I have ever carved a pumpkin since we've been married...and that deserves a big BOO!

But, how fitting would it be if I let you guys participate in the very first Theme Thursday post by casting your vote for our what you think our very first pumpkin should be??

Now, I have to be honest...Halloween is not my favorite holiday.

I'm not a big fan of goblins and ghosts, and I certainly don't like spiders; but all that aside, I think it's still fun to show some holiday spirit.  Luckily for me, I'm not alone!  There's certainly no shortage of Halloween ideas out there, so I'm sure I can find something that's not too ghoulish.

I've narrowed down some choices for our first pumpkin, so please cast your vote through my Facebook page, or through the voting feature on the right-hand navigation bar.  I'll put my spin on whichever pumpkin you guys choose...and I'm super excited!


I love these bug pumpkins from Country Living!  I think I could handle a project like this.  I'm much more comfortable with a paint brush than a knife!

#2--Denizens of the Dark

Holy cow!  Check out the multi-storied carved pumpkin from Martha Stewart.  Leave it to Martha to come up with a name like "Denizens of the Dark."  I'm not really sure what the means, but I thought it was too cool to change it!

#3--Black and White Pumpkins

Okay, these pumpkins from Oopsey Daisy are just too stinkin' cute!  They have bling and shimmer! That's a crafty woman's dream!

#4--Glitter Pumpkins

This might get a bit messy, but these glitter pumpkins from No Fuss Fabulous look super fun!  I've got some left-over ribbon that's in need of a new project-home!

#5--Any of These

Oh my gosh, take your pick!  These pumpkins from Talk Crafty To Me are one-of-a-kind.  It might be difficult to put a spin on them, since they're already so unique, but I'm sure I can come up with something!

Alright, so go on over to my facebook page to cast your vote!  Whichever pumpkin has the most votes by November 20th will be claimed the pumpkin king (aka, the winner).  I voted for the bugs pumpkin, but it was a tough call...so I definitely need some help! 

Do any of you have plans for your Halloween pumpkin this year?  Do you like to carve the pumpkin, or would you rather paint or bedazzle it?  I'm leaning toward bedazzling.

Hi Kelli

You are doing great this week with your new posting strategy! Way to go!!!

I voted for the 'Any of these' category. Not only are they charming and amazing, but you would get to bake the pumpkin seeds.
Mmmmmm, baked pumpkin seeds.

Amanda, so glad you found me!

Nichole, thanks for the feedback! Was hoping the new routine would work out. I like your idea about the pumpkin seeds!
