Getting over the blues...

I can't believe Hallowe'en is over... Yesterday I packed away the last of the decorations (although I simply couldn't fold away the child-sized skeleton, it would just be wrong! He's living in my studio for now.)
I've been rather depressed (where have all the ghosties gone?) and then I got this lovely package in the mail!

When you receive something this creative, you know you're blessed. Real leaves are taped onto the box, so simple yet so elegant! I received this from Sally J. Smith of Green Spirit Arts, one of my
Online Hallowe'en Artists' Studio Trick or Treat artists, and inside I found the 2012 calendar and greeting cards I purchased, along with many special thank you treats. These are some of the cards:

  1. That is nice you got a surprise in the mail. I find that if I keep a few ghouls out all year it helps my Halloween blues. People think I'm a bit "off" because of it... but I never really did care what others thought.. lol!

  2. I'm really tempted to set up all my Hallowe'en stuff again, I'm alone for a few days with no one to stop me!!! Wah-hah-hah!!! Only that means I'd have to pack it all away again... sigh. I love the photo on your blog, Melanie, is that your forever love? :)

  3. Lol! I say do it!!! You should see my studio and living room. You could so appreciate it.. lol.
    That is one of my many loves.. heehee. I will post up my videos and more pics.. I'll go do that right away... I'm sure you will enjoy.
