Creative not Bitter, Yes We Carve, Halloween 2008

Creative not Bitter is the best way I can describe Yes We Carve which in 2008 brings together Presidential Politics and Halloween around good old pumpkin carving.

Beyond the theme, Yes We Carve reminds us that there are fun activities that do not require a big setup,
Just a good pumpkin, a carving knife, you and your imagination.

The folksy video above illustrates the project.

Not into politics, carve a portrait of your dog, your favorite Manga character, Johnny Bunko maybe.
The possibilities are endless.

Thanks to Xeni Jardin for putting this on my map.
