That time of year

The time of goblins, witches, and intrails is upon us. Among many of the seasonal activities, at the top of the list, for me anyway, is pumpkin carving.
Extreme Pumpkins has some interesting ideas, tips, and prefers the use of power tools to kitchen knives and those pumpkin carving kits you can get at the dollar store. They even have a pumpkin carving contest too. (via Very Big Blog)

Spookmaster has some funky printable stencils to use as a pattern for your carving.
