When I was a kid, I loved carving pumpkins – it was my thing.
Anyway, it was the beginning of October and my mom had a coupon for a free pumpkin if she spent $20 some odd dollars on groceries.
So, she brought home this pumpkin and I was all excited and ready to carve it. I was defeated.
She said I couldn’t carve it yet because it was too hot out (in SoCal it’s like 90 degrees in October) and the pumpkin would rot before Halloween.
I whined and told her she was wrong. She said something along the lines of “carve it and see what happens, but know this – I will not get you another one.”
To prove her wrong I carved it – and was all happy with myself.
Several days later, the inside of the pumpkin was gooey, filled with mold, and had bugs all over it. It was gross.
On Halloween night, I had no pumpkin to display outside, it was trashed long before then. Moral of the story, I should’ve listened to my mom.
Luckily, the pumpkins in my bullet journal will live forever.
This is the bullet journal I use.
I started by blocking sections of the bullet journal with some cut up pieces of paper. I did this because I wanted to keep some sections from getting any color.
Last, I hand-lettered the word ‘Notes’ in the last box with this black brush pen.
