I recently found a lamp-making kit among my stuff. I didn't recall why I'd bought it until I found the picture of this jack 'o lantern. The light-bulb in uncle Fester's mouth is supposed to be lit but it was too bright so I left it off.
I actually had a girl dressed as Wednesday Addams trick or treating at my house that year.
And I almost missed the banners! So yay! for going back and congratulating other winners because I wouldn't have seen the banners if I hadn't.

Edited 20 Oct 2016: Oops, I'd put in a LJ person for Gabrielle, whom I don't know, rather than VelvetWhip, whom I'd meant. Fixed that.
Come join in the fun. Go Teasm Epic Spander! Yeah!
Damn but I was upset to see this photo. I knew she’d still had feelings for him even years later. I’d once noticed a picture of him on her fridge and when I commented on it she said in one of those artificially chipper tone of voices, “Is there really?”
The photo had been tucked away with some studio shots she’d had done in the ‘80s so I can let myself imagine she had eventually forgotten it was there. I put it away and found it again yesterday.
I decided to burn the photo but cut them apart first. Once I looked at Mom alone, I saw how happy she’d been. I’d planned to burn the two pieces separately and put the ashes from his side into salt to break any bond, but after I’d seen her alone I felt I couldn’t deny her that happiness. Yeah, he’d been an ass, but before that she’d been happy. So I just burned the two pieces together.
