So YouTube is the devil. You knew that.

If you need proof, in the last year or so, I have become a bit addicted to YouTube craft tutorials and stemming from this, I have a number of aborted half-finished projects to my name that I thought were a good idea at the time.

The latest then is a wooden Halloween Advent Calendar which I didn’t realise was missing from my life until I saw this (when it was on Etsy and I too gulped at the price). No worries, I thought seemingly like many others, I can just make my own! Though not as fancy, obviously.

So I got a wooden advent calendar from Hobbycraft and told my dad what I was doing in the hope he would suggest a way of adding another six boxes to take it from 25 to 31 for October. He volunteered to make some… and then to extend the roof. And then he got really into it and dreamt up a sloping roof and a bell tower… no, a clock tower… no, a clock tower with a steeple (he made all these versions, usually without telling me first) and then fitted a board for a background and lights (we are yet to choose the constellation). He’s even ordered a dollhouse weathervane (which is going to have a witch on it). Whose project was this again?

[livejournal.com profile] sb_fag_ends has launched it's annual Halloween Challenge and this one is a really exciting game that is a sort of sequel to our Witches Brew challenge from a couple of years back.

Those who are Spuffily inclined - Come and Trick or Treat!

An actual flash of proper lightning set the scene as I was uploading the sb_fag_ends 2013 Halloween Challenge, the weather could not have been more foreboding!

If you fancy having a play about in the Spuffy sandbox, come on over. Lacrimosa Le Mort and Mr Boo need YOU to join the Way of Shadow!

It's a dark and stormy night and I'm watching dodgy French vampire films in the dark on my own. The thunder, lighting and pounding rain are adding a wonderful level of seasonal creep!

In other seasonal news, I have been inspired by [livejournal.com profile] sueworld2003 to make some decorations for my Halloween tree, which now sports a lovely collection of tortured souls (and some pumpkins). They came out much better than I thought, so as I'm rather pleased with them here you go (and yes, the tree is on my work desk):

I actually had a Trick or Treater yesterday! Something quite unprecedented in my flats. Of course, I had nothing to give him under the circumstances. I told him to come back today to get rid of him.

He bloody did, the little squirt.

What a weekend!

Just got in from the fireworks. Hemel has them early as part of their Halloween events. Sadly I forgot my camera, but it was good fun!

The rest of the day was spent decorating my friend's house for their childrens party tomorrow. I have the day off to help. I'm not sure I have the energy.

What else was there?

Oh yes... :)

Highgate.

Saturday was [livejournal.com profile] sueworld2003's Highdate trip. I had a fantastic time (except for the cramp I got climbing the hill, which I'm still suffering from). Everyone was amazingly lovely as always and my Plaice and Chips were superb.

Now I fancy doing one of those photo request meme things. So if there's something you'd like me to take a photo of (except myself), leave a suggestion below.
