Wow! Can you believe that it is September?????

Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner! Can you believe it?! Punkindoodle and BOO are SOOOO excited about the Halloween decorations that are popping up in the stores, I can't even tell you! My son (who is mostly non-verbal) wrapped himself in my yoga mat on Friday and told my husband that he wanted "up". He then proceeded to "chainsawintobat", translation "change into a bat" :). Hubby and I teared up at how cute he was flapping my yoga mat...

Well, I sincerely, sincerely apologize to those of you who were waiting for some exciting new items in this month's PFATT release. The construction crew is STILL not finished with my basement (err!) and all of my art supplies are buried in the mountain of Boo's therapy stuff in the garage. You know, it has been a wonderful summer, but there have been so many things going on with my son's health. To give you an idea, I spent two afternoons this last week seeing doctors. One afternoon in a meeting with the school nurse (we are trying an hour of school a day), and an hour and half waiting at the pharmacy for yet another Rx; Boo hasn't been able to sleep more than an hour or two a night lately. I'm afraid that all of it may be zapping my creativity a little too, as I have several pieces sitting in boxes in different stages. On top of it all, we have a meeting at the Children's Hospital at the end of this month. Several specialists and researchers will give us a final report on all of the testing that has been done in the last three months, and while I am taking it in stride, I think it is weighing on me more than I like to admit. So once again, please accept my apologies! I am very hopeful that things will get back on track and that my new studio space and Boo's new therapy room will be done very soon!

So the "up" side of all of this is that I have been getting out and running more! Mostly to escape that constant hammering and drilling in my house (err!) and to clear my head. As a result, crazy woman that I am, I signed up for Race for the Cure and the Colorado Wild Woman Duathlon! Wish me luck, I am a little nervous!

Well, as some of you know, we are remodeling our basement! I am very excited because the new space will act as a much needed, new therapy room for my son. Anyway, long story short, my studio was in the basement, and I have yet to find a relocation for all of my art things other than 5 large Rubbermaid containers sitting in the garage. So all of my completed pieces are wrapped up and in the living room, my paints and clay are in the garage, and I have several half finished pieces in my kitchen. My house is quite the sight as you can well imagine!

Anyway! What that means is I need to clear out some things in my home! Much to my dismay, the contractor informs me that my home will be in this flux for up to 8 more weeks! So, while i don't have anything new to showcase this month, I do have lots of pieces available at deep discounts!

Trivia Challenge Results!

All the entries seem to be in, so we don't have to wait until the 17th to make the annoucement!

Okay, so after much review, I decided to throw out question 11! SO Everyone got credit for it!

Danny Elfman did provide the vocals for Jack Skellington. You all were right :)! What I meant and should have written in my question is who did the "original" vocals for Oogie Boogie? Again the answer was Elfman. The character's song and vocals (at Burton's urging) were based on the jazz great, Cab Calloway. Ken Page, as you all know, did the vocals in the final cut, but Elfman did the originals. Sorry guys, my error! Anyway, here are the answers!

1. Halloween was originally a Irish/Celtic pagan holiday called Samhain or Samain.

2. If you have an intense fear or phobia about Halloween you are considered samhainphobic.

3. Jack O’ Lanterns were originally used by the Irish to frighten away evil spirits. The first Jack O’ Lanterns were carved out of turnips, until it was discovered that pumpkins were much easier to carve!

4. The largest pumpkin was grown by a man named Dave Stelts and it weighed 1140 pounds.

5. Bing Crosby narrated the Disney version of The Legend of Sleepy Hallow (one of my favorite movies!).

6. In Walt Disney World (in Florida, I once worked there!), the Riverboat Tour tells visitors that the Haunted Mansion is built on an Indian Burial Ground.

7. The Song, Monster Mash, reached #1 on the Billboard Charts in the year 1962.

8. During the Medieval Era, it was said that spiders coated in this dairy product, butter, was used to “cure” leprosy (okay that’s just gross!).

9. The song “This is Halloween” is from one of my favorite movies, The Nightmare Before Christmas. It was composed by Danny Elfman.

10. This composer was also was a member of one of my favorite bands Oingo Boingo.

Drum roll puleeezz....We have a three way tie!

Now I have to come up with a way to break the tie!!! LOL! I think we will pick numbers out of a hat! That may be easiet! Anyway, I will contact the three of you shortly!
