And I have to say I am thrilled with the response to the Halloween garland! Thank you all muchly for your sweet comments on my last post. Y'all are the coolest! And please share pics, I'd love to see your creations.
Oh, I got the nicest request today from a museum in British Columbia asking permission to use my photo of the Advent Calendar I made last year. They saw it on Flickr, and want to use it in a class teaching children about Christmas countdown traditions as a way to preserve the heritage of their community. Isn't that a cool thing?
I have a few more things I want to do for Halloween before I get swept up in the crazy vortex of Christmas. Did you know there is an entire graveyard's worth of tombstones stacked up in the attic? But I don't think those will come out this year. Once one's kids are grown one doesn't have as much of an excuse to decorate, does one?
