Paint the Town Orange!

Halloween season is well on its way and I couldn’t be more excited. In between pulling out all the stops to create one-of-a-kind costumes, going overboard with wacky make-up and indulging in the sweetest treats, there’s never a dull moment when October rolls around.

While I don’t go all out when it comes to Halloween décor (my neighbors do too well a job of that, thank you), I do make sure to put glittered skulls and pretty painted pumpkins on display. Uh huh, I’d rather paint than carve. I remember being frustrated with carving basic shapes on the damn vegetable, err, fruit on my first try that since then, I decided I’d take a different artistic direction.

This year though, I thought I’d give the good ole jack-o-lantern a try, especially if I’d suddenly feel like joining Blizzard’s annual pumpkin-carving contest which should be coming very soon. Speaking of which, I’ve picked out photos of contest winners and honorable mentions from years past to show you.




Now after seeing all these mindblowingly intricate designs, I sure am inspired. Who knows? I just might be taking on the challenge.

What about you guys?
