This Old House Carving Contest 2009

Postby jadewik » Mon Sep 21, 2009 1:45 pm

I'm copying this from a Live Journal pumpkin carving community where it was posted... I entered my 2 p-kins from last year... we'll see how things go....

---------------------------------------------------
Last year, users completely blew our minds with amazing pumpkin carvings created using everything from X-Acto knives to Dremels to drills. So, this year we've decided to kick off the fun a little early.

Go to https://youroldhouse.thisoldhouse.com/pumpkincarving/ to enter as many carvings as you'd like. The contest isn't limited to new carvings, so go on and give an old masterpiece a shot at glory; we know you took pictures of your perishable project. There are, of course, faaaaaabulous prizes up for grabs, PLUS winners will be featured in a thisoldhouse.com Halloween day photo gallery.

We look forward to seeing your carvings! Best of luck!

post some more pictures here of your pumpkins! i'd like to see them. i'm not the best pumpkin carver so i need some inspiration :)
Last night 'twas witching Hallowe'en
Dearest; an apple russet- brown
I pared, and thrice above my crown
Whirled the long skin; they watched in keen;
I flung it far; they laughed and cried me shame
Dearest, there lay the letter of your name!

I just used the following two:

and

I never usually enter these things because most of them take the copyright to the actual photo. This year, it seemed more like they just wanted copyright to duplicate, publish and transmit the photo for free.... so I took the plunge.

I don't believe I'll win... but that $200 Home Depot prize really does look delicious!

I could enter more later, I suppose....
