…Pumpkins are good for racing?

Pumpkin BoatEver wonder what they do with the giant pumpkins that compete in contests after they do the weigh-in?

I had always assumed that they made a ginormous pumpkin pie, but apparently, some crafty pumpkineers have turned the gourds into hollowed out Halloween rafts that they can then race down the river.

It’s like a Master Craft-o’-lantern.

…Books make great gifts?

Hollow Book Gift

Mark Lowrie has a great idea for that homemade gift giving type person. He uses hollowed out books that he fills with interesting contents such as The Vice Control book, filled with vices; or the vintage pulp book filled with journals and writing supplies. Hollow out a copy of the Kama Sutra, fill it with appropriate supplies, and you’ve got yourself one creative and original V Day gift. Plus, the surprise of opening a gift to find a book but then opening the book to find a gift would definitely be the best part of giving something like this.
