Thank you for all the AATW October wishes. You spoiled me this month. I love the Halloween PC you sent. It's so awesome. I want to frame it (and I may). The Dr. Pepper costume is a great idea. Much to my surprise, I also had a package from you. I love the handmade envies. It was nice of you to go ahead and put blank labels on them. And I love, love, love, love the Halloween label book you sent me! Thank you so much for all the wishes. It was nice of you to think of me this month. Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
