Halloween is coming up – eventually, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the stores (some of which also have – gasp! – Christmas stuff out already). But why shouldn’t we be able to buy our trick-or-treat candy two months early? And then eat it all and go back for more? Isn’t that what America is all about?
Seriously, though, I do appreciate that the craft stores always gear up with seasonal merchandise way ahead of time, especially since I’ve signed up for several Halloween-themed swaps that are due long before Halloween. Also, there’s the new challenge at Mind Wide Open, for which you’re to create a project using a lovely, yet spooky image and the word prompt “Boo!”
Because when you need a big, black, hairy spider, you want to be able to go out there and get one.
No spiders were harmed in the making of this collage. Well, except that one really big one in the corner, and I’m almost 100% sure he’s not real.
