I grew up with a mother who loved Hallowe’en. I remember at least one year when she turned our humble home into a neighborhood haunted house – complete with chains as “bones”, peeled grapes as “eyeballs”, something else was a “brain”, etc. Another year our entire front yard was turned into a graveyard. And she had this neat witch’s mask that had a cigarette hanging out of the side of the mouth that she wore to answer the door, as costumed children came asking for candy . I never went as far as she did with my own decorating; I seem to be more lazy than she was. I bet she would have loved to make her own Hallowe’en cards. She was so totally crafty.
Anyway, I finally purchased the Greeting Card Kids stamp set and got it out this past weekend, along with my watercolor wonder crayons. I should look up how to color with them better, but had fun all the same. Thanks for stopping by today, and for allowing me to ramble on about some happy memories of my mom. Take care!
