On Tuesday, I spent close to nine hours putting away Halloween decorations because I decided to completely reorganize the bins (and make sure everything was off the floor since we had that incident with water in the basement after the torrential storm).
While doing so, I came across a box of all the decorations I had made for my first big Halloween party back in Grade 4.
Amidst the paper bats and pumpkins was a bound book entitled "Best Spells By Betty Croaker" (and my other name). I do enjoy that I put a copyright symbol on it.
I'd bound the book with thread and used wall paper for the cover. No, the wallpaper isn't very scary, but when you're little you have to work with what's in the house.
The book is a collection of spells for monsters from A to Z. Some are classic Halloween characters while others are creatures I'd seen in my Dungeons & Dragons books (I didn't play at the time, I just liked having books about monsters).
Want to make a mimic? A Frankenstein monster? A Zorma?
It's all here.
Need an elf for a recipe but don't have one on hand? No worries. There's a recipe for making your own elf.
A is actually an introduction. Note how little Ghoul uses the traditional spelling of Hallowe'en.
I hope you enjoy the pictures below. I got a good chuckle out of them.
