Happy Halloween!

My pumpkin, with a design inspired by Aenigma Fonts’ dingbat font 90 Stars BRK.

Alisa's pumpkin, which reads 'spooky'.

Alisa’s spooky pumpkin, cut in Aenigma Fonts’ 8-Bit Limit BRK. I swear we aren’t working for Aenigma. Really.

Alisa punches the outline of her design into the pumpkin skin through a printout taped to the front.

Alisa using a wacky little pumpkin-cutting tool to punch the outline of the design into her pumpkin, so she can meticulously cut it out. Look at that determination! Look at that skill!

I had to modify the dingbat I used to design my pumpkin so it would work, well, on a pumpkin.

Rebecca separates out the pumpkin seeds from the mush.

Rebecca contributed to our Halloween weekend by making some delicious pumpkin seeds. Hand picked.

  1. I am really annoyed by the slip of the blade with the K. Dammit! I think they both turned out great, though it would seem to the trained eye, that we’d carved each other’s pumpkin. You doing a lacy patern, while I went for a pure type design. Does that make any sense?

  2. Your children will be the greatest designers the world has ever known…but I still I won’t understand any of it.
