"Death must be so beautiful."

For some, it's Hocus Pocus. But for me, it's The Addams Family - the ultimate indication that Halloween is about to kick us in the groin. Hard.
It's true. Halloween isn't always pretty, but it sure is fun to let your inner demon out for just once; to get out the fangs and the claws, the pointy hats and crooked toes, to embrace your messy hair. If you ask me, Halloween doesn't come round nearly as often as it should. You don't need to tuck in your shirt and your eye liner doesn't need to be perfect - come to think of it, I'm not sure mine really ever is. But it's nice to not be judged for it at least that one day of the year.
Wow, humans really are little monsters.

It was nice knowing you.
When I think of the perfect fall day, a cup of tea comes to mind, knitted sweaters and layers, colors ranging from gold to scarlet red.
I do not - I repeat -, do NOT think of what is going on around here lately:

I'm sure we all remember chasing rainbows when we were young(er).
My siblings and I would be delighted to find one hanging over the distant trees and would set out on a quest to find its very end. Double rainbows were the best; twice as much gold to go around!
It's funny though, however hard we'd run, the rainbow never seemed to come any closer.
(Which usually meant we'd give up within only a few short minutes. But hey, at least we tried!)

I don't know if I'd call myself a superstar, but I do know how to handle a hot glue gun.
And one project at a time, I am saving the planet from dull surfaces and uninspired designs.
So that's pretty cool.
But it is even cooler that the lovely Cat from Cut Out & Keep is featuring me as her Crafty Superstar of the Week!

I am in love. Deeply. Madly. Passionately.
I think I've known for a while, but just couldn't bring myseelf to say it out loud; to admit it to myself, my devotion to you.
When we were both still young, we'd lie together in the morning sun, we'd dance under the sheets, and sip from the same cup.
But I didn't know.
