Super happy to be doing this again this year! (Just sent in my questionnaire.) Last year, crafting for two Halloween swaps really helped me stay sane during lockdown, and it’s looking like a good plan for this year too!


Missed the su :frowning: Oh well I will have to wait for what will be a wonderful gallery!

Weekly check in! Every week I will post a question for us to answer. It is a fun way to get to know each other and check in.

Question of the week.
If you had to be one which would it be? Werewolf, vamipre or zombie?

I’m between werewolf and vampire. Werewolf would be more convenient. LOL! But vampire would be more fun. (If I could be someone like Bela Lugosi’s Dracula or Lestat… something like that…)

Vampire, definitely.

Vampire, I’ve always been a bit of a night owl anyway. :laughing:

Definitely not a zombie and I’m already hairy enough so a werewolf would be an easy transition! lol!
I think a funny idea for a sitcom would be a ghost and a zombie that came from the same dead body. Like the ghost could be sassy and the zombie would be kinda dumb, running into walls and stuff. And they would be roommates living in the same apartment Odd Couple style

Well, one of the gifts of old age is that my gray hair is coming in with loads of “body” (up until then, my hair was very straight). This makes it all a little unruly. Add in covid and no trips to the hairdresser, and it’s getting a bit out of control. So, I feel like I’m halfway to werewolf already - plus, no need to shave your legs!!


Check in time! It’s a two part questions. 1- have you checked in with your partner and 2-What is your favorite thing about Halloween?

I have checked in with my partner and there is just way too much that I love about Halloween. We collect vintage Halloween so a lot of it stays up all year round. I love watching horror movies (I do that all the time too. LOL!), love candy, the cold weather. It is just a feeling. It’s perfect!

I HAVE checked in with my partner, she and I have very similar tastes so this was easy to craft for
I love all things Halloween but mostly the colors and the cooler temps. Cooler temps in Florida just means 80 and not 95! I love being scared so scary movies and Halloween horror nights are musts for me!

Yep, my partner and I have checked in. As she said, we seem to have very similar taste. Yippee, that always makes it easier to come up with ideas. (And, after a few false starts, I think I’ve got a plan :slight_smile: )

As far as question 2, I think it’s this! My kids and grandkids are almost grown, we don’t get any trick or treaters in our neighborhood, and, right now, I feel most comfortable at home. But, every year I do this swap. I start thinking about it in early summer & start contemplating new and interesting ideas and supplies (yearly Tim Holtz Halloween release!). Then it’s sign-ups, partners and stalking. Then weeks of crafting. And, finally appreciating new Halloween goodies. Seriously, I love this stuff :slight_smile:
