Last Halloween, hubby requested me to carve a pumpkin for the competition in their office. I am not really artistic but I can work things out after seriously studying stuffs. With the inspiration I got somewhere, I gathered my kitchen knife, my set of art knives, pencil, teaspoon, old newspapers and of course a good size pumpkin.
The design we decided to join in this year's competition was the famous cartoon character, Spongebob. I was not sure that I'll be able to finish it since my tools were not enough. It was hard to make various size of circles around the pumpkin but I can't skip them because those are essential in channelling out the light. With the encouragement coming from my better half, I finally finished the task around 1 am. By the way, I started at 9 pm.
Acccording to my husband, it was so popular. His co-workers and competitors took picture of it. They intend to show it to their kids. I was so delighted to hear that.
Although, we didn't won the first place, still we were pleased for landing on third place. We were not actually expecting it. Hubby was surprised to receive an email from the event organizer telling him to claim the prizes. He brought home a very nice umbrella and a baseball cap.
We only joined for fun but being appreciated for something you worked so hard for really felt so good.
