Post by MIKECOZ8 » Tue Nov 01, 2011 1:15 pm

I'll start it off

Ryan --- THANK YOU --- your talents and dedication to your craft are first rate and Zombie Pumpkins ARE a part of my tradition each year. Your site and this forum have helped to bring new and exciting ideas to our yearly Halloween celebration and I will be a loyal fan for as long as there is a pumpkin to be carved.

Thank you, Ryan!

It would not be Halloween without Zombie Pumpkins. I know it has to cut into time you could be carving, going to parties, dressing up and having a fun time. You work so hard for all of us. I greatly appreciate everything you do!

Aw shucks guys, I'm going to blush. :oops: Stop it... no, keep going. ;)

In recent years, ZP has cut into the time I could be out celebrating my own Halloween festivities. But... helping everyone else celebrate their Halloween traditions is one of my favorite things about this holiday.

Even if I don't carve as many pumpkins as I'd like... you're all nice enough to be using my designs, and so I can live vicariously through you, as I read all your comments and view your photos. My art gets to spread all around the entire globe on Halloween night, which still blows my mind. Its an honor to be part of your traditions, as you are all part of mine.

Thank you Ryan, i got so many compliments on the pumpkins this year and so many pictures were taken of them. If not for your designs i wouldn't have the strong desire to carve like i do. Thanks for a great year and the best part is the year is not over.

I don't know about the rest of you guys but ZP! is my Halloween. Yeah, I have a few decorations but the centre piece is and always will be the pumpkins.

People always comment on them and we always get people who drive round for a look. That gives me a great buzz and it is only possible through Ryan's sterling efforts. Its a very small payback for all his efforts but at least we spread the ZP! name when people enquire about them.

This is an excellent thread as we can let Ryan know he is very much appreciated. This time of year must be manic for him and I'm sure there must be times when he opens his email and thinks, "What am I doing?" or words to that effect. Possibly stronger.....with one or two swear words thrown in for good measure.

Anyway, long may he continue. Besides which he knows we would hunt him down if he ever thought about stopping.

Thank you Ryan. Not just for the patterns , carving kits , T-shirts and stickers but especially for hosting such a wonderful forum. There are times when this ( and facebook) are the only things that keep me "sane".

Thank you for the great ideas and inspiration and. most of all for your patience and persistence in keeping the site running in the face of adversity and at the expense of your own Halloween celebrations.

The thing I look forward to the most about halloween is ZP! Carving Ryan's wonderful patterns into pumpkins is by far my favourite thing to do at this time of year. Thank you so much for the work you do. It was stumbling across Zombie Pumpkins that rekindled my love of Halloween from childhood. I wish you all the success in the world and will be here to watch this amazing site grow and grow. You are the pumpkin king. All hail the King! :D
They're coming to get you, Barbara!
