Here in FL I wait till the night before Halloween to cut the pumpkins because the mold takes over so quickly. It just takes a few days then in the trash it goes :)
I love the smell and colors of candy corn but they are too sugary for me. However I enjoy crafting with them and had lots of fun designing with the pillow templates from The Cutting Cafe... I'm not big into the scary stuff during Halloween but I do love Fall fun, pumpkins, apple picking, candy corn, costumes and of course the colorful leaves. Always miss living in Maine this time of the year.
As always I would love to see your designs!
