Edgar Allen Poe

". . . .One night, returning home, much intoxicated, from one of my haunts about town, I fancied that the cat avoided my presence. I seized him; when, in his fright at my violence, he inflicted a slight wound upon my hand with his teeth. The fury of a demon instantly . . . . . . . ." Ok, enough of the story, on to my package from the POE swap.

We were to choose one of Edgar Allen Poe's short stories and our partner would create an altered box to portray the story. I choose The Black Cat and this is what I received.The altered box had the cat fur in the box and a bobble head black cat.
Also, a black cat halloween treat bucket and all these things you see in this pic.
Also, the cute button bracelet.

My partner choose the Raven by Edgar Allen Poe.
This is what I sent her. A box covered with a large dark haunted looking house with a orange moon and a raven sitting on top. The box was filled with spiders and bats to give out on Halloween night to her trick or treaters.
And a doorknob witch hanger and a few other halloweeny things.
Happy Halloween.

  8. Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup.
    Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
