Sounds like everyone is having fun opening their packages. Whether you got a big thing, or lots of little things, it's just fun to get surprise items for Halloween, isn't it? Every gift I've gotten from a ZP member is displayed proudly somewhere in my home or office. Just makes me smile because I think, "So and so gave me that." Well, I usually remember who gave me what, I don't call you all "so and so" haha.
monstermash - I like the Trick 'r Treat print you got from S.A.M. I'd be jealous except I own that print too.
S.A.M. - I AM jealous of the Sleepy Hollow box you got from monstermash. So classy.
amandap80 - You got a lot of witchy things! How fitting. Not that I think you're a witch, but I know you enjoy the theme.
mesmark - Totally envious of that "Creature Feature" print by Byron Winton. That's a who's who of Halloween and horror.
zombombie - You got lots of toys, you big kid. Bet you had fun with that.
paddy_babe - Ha! HalloweenBride got you that light sensor shrieking skull. Yes, I got spooked by the squeaking mouse in my package last year. It's Halloween, everyone is entitled to one good scare.
Hottie McNaughty - I don't know where to begin with your haul either. It's all so great. matspud is a great gift giver.
chuckwagon - Geek culture heaven here, you and zombombie were a good match up! I have the Halloween Legion book, great one!
matspud - Ooh, signed and personalized! Excellent score.
nosferatu - Regarding the goodies I sent you: I tried to go with a slight witch and pumpkin theme. Among the sweets, the caramel apple Twizzlers are admittedly a bit "unique" in taste, but I'm addicted to them and forcing them on everyone I know. Haha. Also, I gave you the Pez to show some southern Connecticut pride. I live right near the Pez factory. Ouija board mints - did you open the tin and look at the shape of the mints? Once you see it, you'll say, "Oh, obviously! Brilliant." I liked the metallic leaf effect on the skull candles. I know it's tempting to never burn them, but that's why I gave you 2.
The ZP mug... sorry everyone, but it's a one of a kind. I wanted to send a special gift that was ZP specific, but not just any item that can be bought from my shop. So I designed a custom mug for Nosferatu, with a punny quote about coffee and tea. The reason I probably won't be selling mugs - they're heavy (costly postage), they're breakable (more packing/padding materials and chance of having to replace/refund) and they're an awkard shape that doesn't fit nicely with any of the other items I sell. Sorry to tease you all. Maybe you can go visit Nos for a spot of tea or coffee... I doubt he's share the mug, but you can at least look at it.
I'll post pics of the gifts I received next....
