One of the aspects of this career path that I didn’t count on was the whole “get ready for a holiday four months before the holiday.” I still can’t quite master thinking about Christmas in June.
Hence my shock when people started rolling out their completed FALL MANTLES! this week.
I don’t really have a mantle (there is a big TV there) which I thought got me out of the Fall Mantle requirement.
I was wrong.
One of my stores asked me for Fall Mantle decorations. And, double whammy, Halloween Fall Mantle decorations.
I’m not much of a Halloween guy. Once people stopped giving me free candy I kind of lost interest in the whole event.
But, frankly I was a little stuck. My brain just wasn’t ready for Halloween thoughts.
And then this afternoon, juuuuuust as I was convincing myself that a nap was totally justified an idea hit.
Perhaps a variation on my subway signs with a Halloween theme?
I had all the parts so I thought I’d give it a whirl.
In the meantime after some after some quick brainstorming with The Muse who is a whiz and both literature and being clever we came up with the text (text?! In a CheltenhamRoad craft project?! Well, I never!)
I have a Halloween Mantle!
