This is a different art form than what's normally on here, but it still counts.
On Monday I decided I wanted to carve a pumpkin - mainly because I watched my housemates carve a jack-o-lantern and it looked so fun. I couldn't shake the urge so I bought a pumpkin yesterday and carved it last night. I've never really taken the time to carve a pumpkin with great detail and I thought it seemed like a fun challenge. I originally was going to carve a celebrity's face (this pumpkin was almost Sean Connery) but then I thought it would be fun to have this be a jack-o-lantern for my office...and then I started brainstorming who I should carve on the office pumpkin.

It just seemed like a logical conclusion that I should make it an Angie-O-Lantern, since she's the fearless leader of our department. When we start misbehaving she has to remind us to make good choices, which is why her "Don't be stupid" motto is being proclaimed. It's just a dry sense of humor. She's a good boss, really. I don't think my pumpkin carving portrait skills here are super-accurate, but I think it's close enough that you can tell who it's supposed to be...and for my first time really carving, that's all I was really hoping for.
