Every year at the Hotel that so generously employs me, there is a pumpkin carving/decorating contest. 5 years in a row, I have not won. But I love art and being creative, so I don’t mind. Each year I try to do something different than the last (Carved to Decoupaged) but my mind was drawing a blank for 2012, and it was already October 28th!
I decided this year should be Pop Culture! And in my mind, picking a character that was already mostly orange would mean it’d be easier. WRONG. I spent more time on Nemo than any of my other pumpkins. But everyone knows what Nemo should look like, so I wanted to get the details just right.
This little guy was a hit with all the kids in the lobby! Little girls were taking their picture with it, which made my heart just melt. Nemo didn’t win the overall contest, but he is one of my favorite pumpkins yet!
