On the crafting desk

It's been a while since I've shown you even a glimpse of what I've been working on. Admittedly, I was in a creative rut for quite a while, but I have that feeling starting from my toes that I'm slowly starting to get over it. (Did you know that creativity starts from your toes?) I certainly hope so. It's been really frustrating.

On the crafting deskSeeing the colour combinations on the desk (ok, I lied. This is not on my crafting desk. It's on the dining room table. *) it's probably pretty obvious as to what I'm working on. That's right, Halloween. As you might know by now, I love halloween. I think it's partially because we didn't celebrate it when I was growing up. It's a North American thing. Halloween was slowly making it's way to Finland when I moved here, but there isn't that tradition.

I'm such a huge fan... I love the feel, the scary-creepy-pretty movies (Tim Burton, I love you), clever costumes and obviously a ton of candy.

Anywho, I will write a lot about Halloween as we get closer, but I am in full swing of crafting. This actually poses a bit of a dilemma. I would like to show everything I'm working on to you guys right now. But the fact is that I know a few people I'm making something for read this blog. So, I obviously don't want to ruin the surprise. (I even debated if I should say anything, but I felt that if I start with that, my posts will eventually only concern the weather)

Oh, right! I wanted to ask you since I actually don't know...

Is Halloween mail *a thing*? Like, say, Christmas cards.
[I do realize several of my readers are snail mail enthusiasts like myself, so the answer might be a bit biased. Doesn't matter though...]

And if you're not North American, do you celebrate it? Or send some Halloween mail?

*) I don't know how to make this work! I have a crafting desk in the office and yet I still make most of my things on the dining room table. Maybe because I can see the TV from there. Nothing like crafting and some good (or bad, depends how you view it) TV...
