I love getting mail.
Real mail. Snail mail.
It’s something to do with getting a letter or card or a note that someone took the time to write with their pen and paper that gets me right in the guts. Which is why I am here to remind you that now is a good time to get together those Halloween greetings in the mailbox.
We did ours today…(if you are a parent of me or my boyfriend – cease and desist reading this post as you will definitely ruin your spooky surprise.) Here’s a little preview of our simple halloween cards:
I saw the Frankenstein cards at Walmart for $1 and had to have them. They would probably be simple to CIY (craft-it-yourself for the acronym delayed out there)…but for a buck, they were too cute to pass up. And the little ghost card is a piece of black construction paper with Will’s footprint on it in glow-in-the-dark paint. God bless that Martha Stewart woman. She has just the funnest craft supplies. I hope in heaven we will have crafting. Craft time with Jesus would rock. Can you imagine? I would be doing footprints and He would be making new smells for new colors that he just invented. And I would be like “wow…I love the aroma of gurchestging” and He would be all like “I knew you would and I know you will enjoy riding this new animal I created out of flower petals and pumpkin seeds”. And then I would ride that beast over a rainbow. Like I said…it. would. rock.
Anyhoo…we simply painted that glowing paint on Will’s back paw and stamped er down. I had to do a few more coats of filling in with a paintbrush…but finally I got it to really glow well in the kitchen pantry. Then I used a white paint pen to outline our ghost and write the boo. I also put a message on the back:
Except it wasn’t all cute and fonty. I just hand wrote it. Maybe next time when I figure out that spaz I call the printer.
Oh and in the Frank card, we also put this poem…because it’s cute. So have you gotten your cards out yet? Anyone?
