DAY 9 - 31 Days of Halloween, Countdown to halloween, Real witches of Halloween

Welcome to Day 9 of the 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN, as well as day 9 of the COUNTDOWN TO HALLOWEEN, and Day 9 of THE REAL WITCHES OF HALLOWEEN.

Today, I'd like to share a lil' story about a demon fly! For some reason, we've been getting a lot of flies in the house lately (me thinks, people are leaving the porch door open too much)  I have had my son on fly patrol for days, and he's been pretty good at getting them. However there is this one fly, that I swear is a demon or possessed by some ghost. it only bothers me, when I am on the couch, and whatever animals are with me, and it only bothers me, when no one else is handy or around to witness it's behavior. It is a biter also.  This stupid fly, has totally evaded every swing of the swatter by me, and the one night that my son did see it, he swore he got it, but he didn't. this fly also is like a Kamikaze...he divebombs , the cat, granddog and myself, actually slamming into us. he slammed right into my forehead the other night, and then my arm as I sat there cutting something  out.  After 2 days I said to myself, he is dead as I believe flies do not live any longer than 48 hours. BUT NO, he is still with me!  My very own little gothic tale! LOL

My creation today is an ATC.

Ick, flies... they are sneaky and I think they know how to play dead. He's probalby trained his offspring to keep on tormenting you.

I think I have the twin of your fly at my house! I even tried spraying him...which REALLY ticked him off even more!

I'm so late in seeing all of your fabulous 31 days of Halloween projects. LOTS of babysitting this past week, so not much got done on the computer. I have this cool image, but I love what you did with yours more. I can't believe how well you've been coloring with the Bic Mark Its! I've passed up several good sales of them, but I think the next one I see I may have to finally grab a set.

Your other projects are also so creative. I love day 2 the best so far. I probably favor it because of how you filled in the different catacombs in the paper from Melstamps, but I also love that awesome witch image by Alpha Stamps. I'll have to try the "cheater" case for my DGG whose birthday is today. She wanted some from a thrift store I took her to the other day, but I figured this would be a good chance to embellish something special for her. I love how you used the Stickles to border the images.

I need to check out the Simply Betty site now because of your post and card (great job BTW!). It seems that so many of my friends are battling so many serious diseases also, but it's really heart-wrenching when it happens to someone so young. My heart goes out to the families of the children that are going through such horrendous disease.

I'll try to come by more often, so I don't have to fit so many comments into one post! Your creations are too awesome to miss!

Cute ATC - very bright colors! "There was an old lady who swallowed a fly - I don't know why...". Seriously, my hubby has the best way to get flies - squirts them with Windex which stuns them and if they happened to be in a window, so much the better!

Fairfield House said...


Maybe he has a crush on you and they're love bites! Or maybe he was a fly on the wall when Twilight was on and now he has an identity crisis and thinks his name is Edward! :)
I am sympathetic. We get invaded by green headed saber toothed flies each summer. Thank you for your gothic tale and the smile.

Your Friend,

Flies are meant to live 2 to 3 days... I guess this one is an exception... Must be an imortal demon fly for sure!
