Travel Changes & Halloween and... October Giveaway!

First let me tell you that I changed my travel plans. Today I was supposed to be flying to the Netherlands. I was all packed! Ready to GO! Then the terrorist alerts started pouring in. Germany (I was thinking of going there) France (there too), Japan and then finally Amsterdam! Their airport and train stations and business's around the stations... I thought very hard and made the decision not to go at this time. I'm looking forward to traveling there in April 2011... To celebrate with my dear friend Essie's Birthday~ http://www.vanessies.blogspot.com and to see Donna and several other wonderful artists! SO I was heavy of heart for a day or so now I know that April is just around the corner!


So I started to bring up my Halloween things from the basement...
Here's a few photo's of my motley crew...
 Count Dracula
 A Witch Green with Envy
"Are you looking at me?"
Is that you dad???
 Mean ole Witch
 Beware of the Black Widow
 Some funny characters hanging around
The beginnings of my mantle.

And last but not least... My October giveaway will be this disgruntled goblin. Please leave a comment on this post and a way to get in touch with you. I'll draw a name on October 30th!
And once again thank you all for following me and commenting

First of all how could I not comment on all those great Halloween characters festooning your home. Yes, I would love to give the goblin a home too.

Sorry about your trip. But, when one door closes something better comes in it's place. You'll see my friend.

Gah Patty, I bet that was frustrating! Why are people so evil and horrible? I am so sorry you had to put your excitement on hold.

I really am just posting to say that--not so much for the giveaway, as I am still enjoying your little OWOH lovely doll that you sent! I am sure that anyone would be happy with your grumpy goblin, though!

boohoo, sad to hear the your plans had to change, but you're right, we'll see you in April 2011, and then there is DABIDA, that is much fun too and lot's of wonderful and artist to see and talk to ;))
You can even enter for the challenge there perhaps you can take your work with you ;)) the theme is time I thought...

Love and hugs, will keep your mousy warm and comfy for you so you can take her with you, I'm afraid to send it to you and it will not get there at the moment of this terror alert.


Love, hugs and kisses, Andrea

It's amazing to me that so many places are being put on high-alert. I feel bad that it kept you from seeing a good friend as well. -_-; The world just needs to be fixed. Well, unbeknownst to a majority of the population, the 2012 "catastrophe" is actually when the planets align and we enter the age of Aquarius which will, supposedly, cause world peace. :) I'm not sure about this, because scholars have different times when we are supposed to move into this age, but time will tell.

Sorry, I ramble.

Also, I love Goblins. :) You can get ahold of me through e-mail. sidmeversole@gmail.com.

It's good that you got to cancel instead of already being there when it started! That could have been a disaster...
