Crocheted Pumpkin Roundup!

Up here in the mountains, the night temps are just on this side of less than comfortable and, even though there hasn’t been any color changes yet, the leaves are starting to litter the driveway a little.  Yes, we do have a few warm days ahead of us, but all these signs herald the coming of autumn and a much busier crafting time, not to say anything about it being my favorite time of year.  I don’t know if it’s because I’ve lived the better part of my life in places where the summers are incredibly hot, whether being a redhead, I have a genetic propensity to enjoy the colder climate, or that I just like bundling up in cold weather fashions.  And possibly, quite probably, it’s that Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, even Valentine’s Day, are not so far away on the calendar.

To mark our annual celestial trek through space and time around el sol when it crosses the plane of the earth’s equator, or autumn (could have saved some bandwidth there), I compiled a list of some really neat free pumpkin patterns.  When they started popping up in my Google feed, I knew it was official.  If these aren’t to your taste, fear not, as they are quite a few options out there.  Whether you intend to make one or not, feel free to peruse these artists creations – they’re so cute!  Enjoy!

Free Photoshop Action Bonanza

before and after

You all know how I like to share a good thing when possible.  This is one of them.  I follow Vandelay blog because sometimes their giveaways are just the shiznit.  There are 35 new actions, and the one I used for this image was Strong Matte.  If you’ve followed them on occasion you’ll be thrilled to know that this is a totally new set, though I can’t complain about their older offerings.  Learned all sorts of neat new PS special effects, including glowing lines.  Whoo!

If you like PS actions like I do, you’ll love these.   http://www.vandelaydesign.com/ps-actions/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Vandelay+%28Vandelay+Website+Design%29

Free Photoshop Actions

I always enjoy playing around in photoshop and making my own actions, but I tell you, there’s nothing that beats freebies, and they always seem so much better than mine!  Everyone’s vision is different, and it’s fun to see what other people come up with.  I did a before and after image to illustrate only one of the many, many, freebie actions available.  I used this particular one because I love the dramatic change.  Go discover your own at:
