Thanks. I'm pleased with this season's choice of charity. Like I said on the charity
page of this site... underneath all the spider-webs and eerie lights, the real heart of Halloween starts with children. Traditions like costumes and pumpkin carving encourage imagination and creativity, while creating memories and bonds between kids, family and friends. I love the emails I receive from families telling me about how their yearly tradition of Zombie Pumpkin carving brings them together as a family. It's a huge reason I run this site.
Even we crazed adult Halloweeners were all kids once, and that's where the fond attachment to this holiday began. Unfortunately, not all kids have a carefree happy life. Abuse, neglect, poverty... children shouldn't have to deal with adult problems. They should be free to use their imaginations and just be kids. Creative art is a great outlet for expression, social skills and self-esteem. As an artist myself, it's something I'm proud to encourage.
As for the hidden bonus patterns, I hope you guys like them. And I will thank you in advance for being vague when talking about those designs. I think its kind of fun to let them be a suprise.
