This 2013 throwback pattern of American Werewolf in London has been on my "to do" list for quite some time. I'm taking more and more breaks during my carves with every new season that passes to allow my aching finger joints a bit of recuperating time, so I try to take progressive pics of the carves ...

Oh, how I am enjoying these patterns!! Yesterday I was finally able to carve The Tin Man when I returned home from a work trip, and I was anxiously awaiting the next installment, and when I woke up today there he was in all of his straw stuffed glory! Fired up the dremel, and quickly went to work. I...

I was waiting on this pattern when I saw the sneak peek in the newsletter! I knew I had the PERFECT pumpkin in my stash. A gray 9 inch round gemmy, which has been the same size for all of my carves thus far this year. It requires me to shrink the pattern down, but so far it's been fine. I thought th...

Staaahhhp lol Redact that and save the third guess! Lololol, I gotta have a little fun. I won the relaunch date competition years ago, so I always just toss out some silly guess for the competitions to allow more chances to win for others. Although, I'm feeling pretty confident.... chicken tenders ...

Another smaller gemmy style (with internal ribs, unfortunately), and I shrunk this oldie goldie pattern of Freddy down to 80% in order to fit. I first carved this same pattern on a real pumpkin back in 2005, and it was my first ever ZP! carve. Now, it's in my collection forever! https://i.imgur.com/...

I recently bought a plastic skeleton to put in the passenger seat of my Jeep, and fitted it with a pirate hat. It's a funny little Halloween display that allows me to take the spirit of of the holiday with me on the road, and I've already been noticing the smiles and laughs it gets from people. I st...

Fantastic! The world of Jim Henson has always had a large section of real estate in my heart. I grew up on The Muppet show as well, and was obsessed with Fraggle Rock. I developed my first real celebrity crush on Jennifer Connelly after watching Labyrinth. Not that it had anything to do with Henson,...
