Paper Pieced Blog Hop Halloween 2012

I hope you are enjoying the Halloween Blog Hop!  Believe it or not, until just a few months ago, I couldn’t sleep without having the lights on or stay home alone after nightfall. I was terrified of the darkness and night, let alone reading or watching anything scary!  Needless to say, I really didn’t enjoy Halloween for the longest time!

Thanks to a dear friend of mine, I faced my fear and now monsters only exist between pages of the books I read.  I wanted to celebrate that by hosting this blog hop!  I also wanted to make something a little darker and spookier for my block.  I present to you Angry Pumpkin, who is going to turn into a story some day!
