Local Pumpkin Publicity

This morning I was featured on Chanel 2 News Utah AM with Casey Scott. I had fun showing how to carve pumpkins.

Here is the pumpkin I carved of Casey Scott (click pic for larger image)

Where are 2010 Pumpkin Patterns?

I made this comment on one of my posts, but I’ll make an official blog entry about it here because I keep getting asked about new pumpkin patterns for 2010.

Every year I create new pumpkin patterns for our local “North Logan Pumpkin Walk” event, and I feature these patterns on PumpkinGlow.com.

This year’s pumpkin walk theme is on animations.
I had planned on creating a set of patterns on one of my favorite animations (I have several favorites), but this year has been…
well, let’s just say “eventful”.

Fortunately, I have quite a library of cartoon patterns from previous years, so I will be choosing a selection from these for our Pumpkin Walk event this year.

Unfortunately, I have removed these patterns from my site since they would be considered copyright violations on my site. 🙁

I plan on adding patterns if I can this year, and I certainly plan on continuing to add more each year. But this year I have had to put other priorities first (like family and work).

Thank you for your interest in my site and my patterns and for your compliments.

What’s New in Pumpkin Carving Tools?

2 of the questions I get asked most are about shading and how to make pumpkins last longer.  Did you know that by shading your pumpkin it will last longer?

Once you poke all the way thru the pumpkin it’s display life diminishes quickly. By shading your pumpkin you get several benefits:

  • No gutting required (yuk!). You don’t have to get messy cleaning out your pumpkin.
  • No messing with lights or candles. It looks great all day long.
  • It lasts longer. Much longer.

The downside is that shading is typically harder to do.

But wait. I just ran across something that may be just the ticket. If you’ve tried shading before and found it a hassle, you may want to check this out:

I have not tried this product myself. I just learned about it today and I was impressed with how easy it looks.

I am not affiliated with this product and I make no commission if you buy it. I don’t even know the people who are selling it, but I pass this on because I always like trying new tools and think it may help you with your carving.

Go check it out now.
