Halloween Hocus Pocus revisited - Saturday 1st November

Hello Friends,

A late and quick post today and I will get around you all first thing tomorrow! I had one of those crazy days today where the craft room had been driving me mad, can't find a thing, decided to reorganise (why in the midst of Christmas crafting I'll never know!) and now I am surrounded, can't move in here and have made it 10 times worse...why when I have actually got rid of some stuff, will the rest not fit back in the there's a conundrum!

Anyway, we had a fab Trick or Treat...well Tom got stuck at work so I was (sob) all alone, but 48 little spooks, princesses, pirates, pumpkins, witches and the like came a calling...and I got so many compliments for my porch..two 12 year olds exclaimed "amazing!"- chuffed! Yes I did count them...I was on my own, it was something to do!!!

Here are some pretty poor photos..

Today I also found out that my Psycho House/Poe graveyard made the Top 3 in the Artist Trading Post Challenge! I was so pleased as I had put so much time into that project, probably more than any before. I had it on my porch display and several of the parents stopped to ask about it. They all thought the house was the Psycho house, so it looks like I am going to have to start working on a Bates Motel to go with it for next this space!

Thank you for stopping by, I am leaving my mess of a room now to go and watch Strictly in peace!

Love and Hugs
Carole X
