For just about forever I’ve done a Halloween mailing – an annual slightly auto-biographical one-panel (aka a postcard) adventure highlight in the life of Pumpkin Girl.
And this year, for a variety of reasons I’m not entirely certain about, I just didn’t have the energy to undertake the project. The minute I made the decision I knew it was the right thing. Much as I love doing mass mailings, they do take an inordinate amount of time and energy. But as time ticked by and it was clearly too late to actually send anything out, I became a bit sad. No Pumpkin Girl?! Could the world still keep spinning? Would pumpkins across the universe fall over in disappointment that their heroine hadn’t made an appearance? Oh my – you can see this sent me in a bit of an existential crisis.
So I did the only sane thing a Pumpkin Girl lover could do. I made up a single card for myself, but I’m sharing it with you here. Win-win!
I also put together a little video of some of the earlier cards I sent. There are fourteen years worth here, but those are just the ones I was able to dig out. No comments about my not-so-fabulous filing system please. But in any case, here’s a peek at Pumpkin Girl through the years… (You might want to hit the full screen option so you can read them.)
Wishing you a most fabulous Halloween, filled with treats and fun and delicious spookiness too. And do tell – what kind of treats are you handing out to the trick-or-treaters? Have any Halloween traditions that delight you? Inquiring minds of Pumpkin Girl and her pals want to know so they can plan their treasure-gathering route.
