The count down begins

This is it carnival lovers and freaks! Carnival week starts today and we're counting down to the big party. We're still getting last minute sign ups so if you think you can get a party post together by the end of the week you're welcome to join in the fun.

A quick reminder again to check the sidebar for your blog name. Check to make sure the link is correct. If you need to back out of the party we would appreciate a quick email so we can take your name off the list.

The party post will be HERE on Friday for all the early birds. Please make sure you add your link to that post and not to this or any of the previous ones. This is to make sure we don't miss any one's amazing party.

Also a quick note on word verification. Some bloggers don't mind having to deal with it while others find it annoying during a blog party. Word verification helps to protect your blog from potential spammers and blog parties tend to bring them out. I have been very lucky with all my parties and have not had a problem with spammers in the past but a few people say they have. Turning off word verification makes it a little easier when people are commenting on dozens of posts. If you are comfortable turning it off it would be nice and if you choose to leave it on that is fine too. We're all here to share our creativity and enjoy the season and I know we can all respect each other's choices.

 
It's going to be a mad and crazy week while we put the finishing touches on our parties. But I can smell pumpkin spice and candy floss amid the tall oaks and mighty pines. My tophat is getting a final dusting of glitter and our carnival outfits are ready and waiting. We can't wait to see you in the haunted woods...

I feel sad writing this, but I have to bow out of Le Mysterieux Carnival :( I'm overwhelmed at the moment, and the idea I had for your blog party proved to be way too much work (though it was a great idea, if I might say so myself).
Now I'm staring at a looong to-do-list, a big IRL party Saturday and a car in the shop (again) - and I have nothing ready at all for the Carnival party Saturday :(
But, I can't wait to see what everyone else has done for this party, and I will be with you in blog party Halloween Carnivale spirit! ;)

Much to my dismay, I am in the same boat as Ms Misantropia. My world is off kilter and there is so much going on with the family, household, etc., I will not be-able to participate. I will however still be flying by to visit everyone's magik and fun.

Just wanted to stop by and say that I've been feeling rather Mysterieux lately... *sweet cackle*

Dearest Anna and Marfi,

You two are the queens of the carnivale. I will write more later. I am headed to visit all the spooky and kooky sites on the midway. I am just getting here as usual, Im late. Would you expect me any other way by now. I have just posted my party. A week late but I had to join in the fun, late or not. I have been without a computer, but I am here now. I hope you will come and visit me.

Be back soon

Absolutely brilliant
I am hoping to create a spooky Halloween scene of my own this year and you've given me some fabulous creative ideas.
Many thanks
