My goodness, you can miss a lot when you live in a field for two weeks.
Just got back from a folk festival in NY, and wanted to check in!
Favorite Candy? I dunno, that's too hard to choose. I usually use Halloween as an excuse to eat the candy I wouldn't buy normally, like kit kat bars. Also, the ice cream shop I work for makes a pumpkin ice cream that is to die for.
Vampire/Werewolf/Zombie? I'd say non-sparkly vamp or werewolf with some precautions. I like keeping all of myself attached to myself too much to be a zombie.
Jack-O-Lanterns? DEFINITELY. I love carving pumpkins. My first year of college I carved twelve, mostly nature-themed (vultures and bugs and whatnot), but usually there's some creepy ones in there too.
All is quiet on the crafting front, but now that I've recovered from the festival I'll be going back to work! Unfortunately I still don't have a fully functioning computer, but hopefully I'll be better connected until it is fixed.
, I would totally have gone to the pirate fest with you. That sounds awesome!!!
