Cannibalistic Pumpkin Carving Tutorial I thought I would try my hand at carving the popular cannibalistic pumpkin that I've seen so many times before.

It's not too difficult if you are just patient and take it slow. STEP 1: The first thing you want to do before setting out on this is to get the proper tools and items.

I first published my WordClock project in September 2009. It was a Microchip PIC based clock, using a PIC16F877A microprocessor.

DIY Lace Earrings - HonestlyWTF Dolce & Gabbana‘s Spring ’11 collection undoubtedly furthered our already fanatical obsession with lace. Honestly, how dreamy is the collection?!

We had just moved in to our home the month before, but I didn't want to let that prevent us from having the holliest jolliest Christmas. My intentions were good.
