Here I am with a mask that I made. This is more like a Mardi Gras mask. At least that's what I was told. What the heck do I know about Mardi Gras? I took the picture myself and, as you can see, I was also on the phone. How's that for multi-tasking??

This mask you just held up with the stick (which came from my yard).

This is a ghoulish thing that came to my house earlier tonight. What a creepy costume. It's my great niece of course. She is the only trick or treater I have.

May your Halloween be treats and not tricks!!

I filled my halloween candy container today and am all ready for the little Goblins to visit tomorrow. I only have a few and it's fun to see their costumes.

Your niece will be sure to scare the wits out of some younger kids with that spoooky costume.
Your mask is great!! It's pretty.
We are going to see The Nightmare Before Christmas in 3D this evening, so if any trick or treaters come by, they will be out of luck.

You better have some truffles!

I love your mask! Good job.

We don't get many trick or treaters either. We're on the road to nowhere.

But of course, I buy as if armies of kids were coming, and now I'm eating it all. *sigh*

No one comes here to trick or treat. The road is too dangerous and I think most parents take their kids to community Halloween parties and festivals anymore.

I wish I was good at multitasking...I have a hard time just spelling that let alone trying to talk on the phone too. You just have to show your talents off, don't you??? hehehe

Love the stick holding up your mask. When you said stick out of the yard, you really meant stick didn't you?

Your niece is really scarey.

Hey, I see from your comments that you also donated grains of rice...me too, and wasn't that fun? I donated over on the Kitten Yarn blog.

Good Afternoon Rachel,
I come by way of Diane, of Diane's Place. I am still new to the blogging world. I started blogging in September, but didn't really get into it until last month. I have lots to learn about it. Thankfully, Diane has helped me out some. She is such a sweet person and a great friend. I don't live too far from her, probably about 20 miles I'm guessing. I have already made several friends on here from her blogroll. There are alot of crafty people out here in the blogworld. I just love your mask. I had a Mardi Gras mask that I bought years ago and used it on Halloween. I have my own blogsite called Karen's Korner. I hope you will stop by for a visit sometime. I have been thru Kentucky several times. My hubby is a truck driver and I have been with him out on the road several times. There are some pretty places in Kentucky. Since he has been driving a truck, I have been to several states that I have never been before. He has been all over the United States and even in Canada. He has been from one side of Canada to the other. Only in the souther parts of Canada tho. I have read your blog before a few times, but have never posted. I have just got into it in the last couple of weeks. Just thought I would stop by and it was nice to meet you. Take care and have a great weekend.
Karen H.

I hope you took the opportunity to tell her the mask is an imitation of Edvard Munch's famous painting "The Scream".

I am one of those people who never misses a moment to teach a young person something. I would be finshing out my art books to show her the painting. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Scream

The scream mask is the scariest one I've seen to date. Even Michael Myers and Freddy Krueger can't compete with that. You, on the other hand, look too cute!
