So many great suggestions! Thank you!

I'm leaning towards a ghost (New Ghost Pattern?? PWEASE!) or a mummy or Stay Puft to work with the white!

I want to get a dim light to put just under or to the side so when it gets full dark people can still see the white skin!

Oh that cookie jar is AWESOME!

What it really needs is a batch of Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip cookies for extra brainy goodness!

Angry Bird lineup so far! I want to make one more pig in the medium pumpkin size I think. I'm still futzing around with lights and colors but I'm really hoping that the pigs will be green and each bird in it's respective color! The wires on each of the little blue birds are so they will hang from th...

I have bought so many pumpkins from my local farmer's market that he actually planted a new variety (World of Color) this year for me! This is one of the early results and my first 2011 pumpkin. It is about 50lbs. I've been pondering what to carve on it, but I'm not getting much inspiration yet. Doe...

I haven't been crazy about too many of Pumpkin Masters' patterns in recent years, but that is one design that caught my eye when I saw it in their pattern book a few years back. Agreed! I usually pick up the current year's book to use just in case I have some noncarvers show up. But while I cut my ...

Food Galore! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v69/starparty/DSCF6814.jpg That is part of the spread from last year's party! The far end has bowls of dried fruit and candy with flip up tage. One side with a silly halloween name with the real name under. I had dried papaya as mummified dragons tongue...

If you want smoke rolling out I would maybe suggest a "Mister" ...you can find them at the Halloween stores even at walmart in the halloween section. It"s a little device you put in water and it creates a smokey fog or "mist". It's whats usually used in the fogging cauldrons (sp?). put it in a smal...

Welcome to the patch, Starparty! LED work lights? I might have to google more info about these! Is this what you're looking at? For $3 a piece I think I will look into these! That is it exactly! It makes a gorgeous white light! I need to wrap it so it blends better in the bottom, but you can see wh...

I bought an old Pumpkin Masters book this weekend that I hadn't seen before so I scooped it up and carved this lovely lady! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v69/starparty/2011-09-25_22-18-39_3.jpg This was also the first time I've used Saral and I'm in LOVE. I'm still learning to get the delicate c...

I just knew I'd find fellow fiends here! I can't wait to share mine and see what other people can carve. This year I'm already working on doing a full Angry Birds display with 5-7 pumpkins, stone, glass and wood blocks and a handmade slingshot! I'm still working on lights but I found some great LED ...

It is probably a tie between my fog bubble machine and my new candelabra! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v69/starparty/295713_10150307588253562_548338561_7916532_1320429330_n.jpg I just bought it yesterday at Foy's Halloween shop, so maybe it is the best decoration bought this year? :D Without ca...

Hello everybody! I've been a huge ZP fan for years but this year I've started lurking around the forum quite a bit. With all the great tips and ideas I've gotten so far I thought I'd join in and say thank you! I'm known in the neighborhood as the "Pumpkin House" and the "(Crazy) Pumpkin Lady". Last ...
