So excited. Despite that I procrastinated my list...will work on it and get signed up ASAP! Hurray!
That's a lot to be going through! So sorry you both are in that situation and that you won't be able to join in the reaper but so glad you are going to at least play with us in the shrubberies!! Sending you good thoughts that things turn around soon! Do you have a shop for your crafts? Would love to check it out---if it works for my victim's likes it would be a good way to both support a fellow haunter and get you involved in the reaper, even if not in a direct way!I can't sign up, right now...probably not at all...due to us both being laid off due to Covid...me permanently and my husband temporarily, as we know, atm. (He was laid off until Sept., originally, but then found out they decided to close our local location and, if he stays with the company, he will have to commute to the main location. If he stays there, he doesn't even know if he will be able to keep his position/salary that he worked so hard to get to with 18 years with the company, or if he will have to take whatever position/pay they can squeeze him in at in the main location...which could be a major pay cut. He may even have to find a new job, which means losing 18 years of seniority and benefits, plus all his hard work to get where he is. It's all around bad.)
He was approved for unemployment, but hasn't been able to actually get anything from it, yet...even though he was supposed to, already. He can't get in contact with them, either...was put on a callback list. So, we have been without income, besides me selling the occasional small craft and my husband doing odd jobs for our neighbor and his parents. Since we won't hear from his job until, maybe August and he won't have a chance to be back to work there in any way until at least September...then I can't think it possible for me to be able to sign up by end of sign ups.
Long sob story over... regardless, I will still hang out in bethene's bushes with y'all and then watch to see what you all get. Happy Reaper Season!!
So very sorry to hear this. This year has seriously been the worst in so many ways. Really hope you can find some small amount of relief from your grief in Halloween reaper fun.I really need this reap this year. I just found out I lost my third friend this year. One to suicide, another to asthma and now a massive heart attack. I really hate this year. That being said I am jumping even more into crafting for my victim.
Exciting you are planning a wedding! I am sure the is challenging with everything going on...the secret reaper before my wedding was an extra fun/special one! Hope yours is too!Now that I have a desktop in my face I was able to update my likes/dislikes list from yesterday afternoon! I was having the WORST time trying to type on my phone yesterday for some reason. Hence, why my first likes/dislikes post was so vague, including the one bethene got from me! Glad that it's a bit more detailed!!
Anyway, seeing as it is my first time participating I was wondering what kind of items everyone has liked receiving for prior exchanges? Store bought or crafted? I'm REALLY hoping to get my hands on a victim that will require some imagination and crafting on my end! I've been doing it for WEEKS now in preparation for my wedding and I've forgotten how much I love it! Ha
I hope you know all my teasing and begging is meant in fun. I treasure and look forward to the Secret Reaper every year. I know it it is a LOT of work on your end. So grateful.I sent a few victims out. I will do it sporadically tonight.
I forgot how very much I miss the forward method of sending victims. Copy and paste sucks!
I got married in October 5 years ago and same!Although I just went with romantic, autumn, pumpkins etc. I did do a Halloween honeymoon! We stayed at a beautiful house on a lake with prime foliage viewing and took day trips including one to Salem. 🎃I got married two years ago in October and went with the "Fall in love" direction with pumpkins and fall decor. It was perfect but the whole time I was planning I secretly wanted to get something Halloween in there! 🎃
I thought the same about Shadow Panthers comment!!To those of you who have been saying your Victim's lists are so much like your own...you know I'm going to go read lists, now, to see if any look just like mine and see if you could be my Reaper, hahaha.
To Shadow Panther...It gets really cold, here, in the Winter. I like to be warm!
I got to go the week before Halloween and it was wonderful. There was far less Halloween stuff than I might have thought but gorgeous, historic and the shops were too die for. We are a delicious meal looking out in the water. You aren’t allowed to take pictures in most of the best ones but great experience. I had posted on the forum I was going and looking for recommendations. A member who lives near there surprised me by sending me pamphlets she collected for me! This place is the best!What was Salem like? I’ve always wanted to visit!
Really appreciate you letting us know!yes. if someone gets their info in asap ... there is still time until all names are given out! I know I have more to go,,, I am sorry but had enough for now. I might get back on and do more yet tonight, so sorry if you are waiting anxiously!!!
