Tim Holtz + Halloween = SWOON

I used to wait for a sign, she said, before I did anything. Then one night I had a dream & an angel in black tights came to me & said, you can start any time now, & then I asked is this a sign? & the angel started laughing & I woke up. Now, I think the whole world is filled with signs, but if there's no laughter, I know they're not for me.

I can't believe I've won 2 Halloween give aways in 2 weeks.  I didn't do anything spectacular or creative or amazing.  I simply left a comment on a blog and just happened to be the lucky winner of Red Lead's box of Halloween awesomeness.  And then I did the same thing again on Tim's blog.  And I won. Again.  If it makes you feel any better please remember I haven't been able to 'win' a job for the past 14 months.  I wish I could leave a comment somewhere and get lucky on the employment front but for now I'll gladly take these Halloween wins as lovely signs from the universe to hang in and keep the faith. At the very least it's a big old super dee duper positive event (or two) and I'm gonna enjoy the good mojo for as long as I can.  Here's a glimpse of the goodies received:
winner winner chicken dinner!

LOVE the paper stash.  Can't wait to whip up a few albums!

Halloween tokens.  Stains.  Perfect Pearls.  Texture Fades.  *sigh*

Seasonal stickers and halloween adornments.  
Oh yes, they will be put to good use.

The Man himself.  Thanks, Tim!
Me and Tim, 2005.
Ah, signs from the universe.  I own the Brian Andreas print that opened this post.  I adore his art and his words and I do believe that signs are everywhere, everyday.  I met the angel in the black tights years ago and just like it says, if there's no laughter, I know they're not for me.  Always go for the laughter, even if you're laughing alone.  I wish you a creative and sign filled day.
