I entered Stoney's Hunger Games pattern and cited that I got the pattern from here and I also entered Game of Thrones-Khaleesi pumpkin. I was planning to do only one entry, but I wasn't sure it uploaded as I didn't get a confirmation email or nothing, so I did a second entry with a different photo not wanting to upload the same photo twice. Oh well, it's just for fun, there are so many original ideas and beautifully sculpted pumpkins.

I do want to Thank Everyone that Gives a Link Back to the Site.
Not just on this contest but in General. Here there Everywhere.


Some People do take this request , the wrong way !!!
I'm not trying to make "ME" this Big Headed Superstar Pattern Guy.

Look Guys, talking Straight UP - I know for a FACT my Patterns are Good/Great etc...
And I actually Shy away when Folks give Kudo's,

Unless it's my competition Causing More Shit, then I will show how much better the patterns are.... And will get on a milk crate, and SCREAM it !

ALL this really is about, is Helping ME - Let people Know about this Site.
It's 100% Traffic Based. Help me Get People Here.

The more I can Make on the Site, the more Happier I am - DUH !
The More Happier I am the Harder I work. The Harder I work, the More Patterns you get to pick and choose from.

Mentioning Stoneykins Takes Nothing Away from your Carving Talent !!
It's OKAY to make your carvings from Purchased Patterns.
And You should not take full credit - that's just wrong.

Jim Miller did that TV Spot, he wore a Stoneykins Shirt, and Plugged the Site.
Did it take anything away from him as a Fantastic Carver = NO !!!!

My Patterns Help him Build his Wonderful Display.
So To help ME Back - He Plugged the Site..

Again - I Don't Want the Credit - As St0ney (the Pattern GOD)
Please Credit the Website - I want and Need the Traffic/ New Customers.

That's all this Is !! Help me Build !

Wait what? Stoney shirts? Why was I not informed of this?! Lol

I plug this site everywhere my pumpkins go. Let's face it, the pumpkin is only as good as the pattern it starts with. Yes carving takes a little practice, a ton of patience and a spoonful of talent, but it all starts with the blueprint.

I'm spending a little bit of time this morning (while the chili is simmering for contest-yum) entering whatever carve contest online I can find. You never know when or where the next viral sensation comes from. Hope your site clicks go up-up-and-away!
