I need to admit something right now… I don’t love carving pumpkins. I know! I’m a total party pooper! But really… it’s messy. It’s kind of hard. It’s time-consuming. For me, it’s just not that fun. But DECORATING pumpkins? Yeah. That is my jam! Pumpkins are like little blank canvases just begging to be decorated!
