Because the forum was down for most of the season, we sadly didn't get to do our usual games (guessing the theme/title, guessing the launch date, and gift swaps). To make up for it, I'm choosing posts at random (based on my own pre-planned criteria) to win prizes. To increase your chances, just post often (with well thought out comments). If you happen to post on the right time, on the right topic, or just get lucky with my random generator, you'll be able to win a prize from the shop.

What a fantastic idea. I’ve been a bit out of sorts this year. The build up to Halloween for is this site/forums ( here in the uk xmas decorations are out before Halloween and usually take preference in most stores) so I get my excitement levels up here 👍🏻 :D

Well, here's a notification I didn't expect. I'll have a look in the shop, and perhaps order some extra stuff this week.

Great to see everything here is still going good. Haven't carved a pumpkin for years. So many other things going on right now: very busy job, but learning a lot, looking for a new house (with garden so I can grow pumpkins again), baby on the way...

I do check the site every year, and keeps marveling at all your wonderful creations!

Dadja - That's the nature of a surprise secret contest, I guess. You can win a prize for something you posted on the forum years ago. :lol: Congrats on all that you have going on. But never forget your pumpkin roots!

I realized that for you, international shipping is involved, and there's a chance your country may want to charge an import tax. Has that happened before, when you ordered something from me? I would feel bad if a free prize ended up costing you money.

With that in mind, don't feel obligated to accept the prize now, if that's a concern. You can always redeem your prize at a later time - maybe if you're ordering something else anyway. But don't feel obligated to order anything additional either! It's all up to you. :thumbsup:
