Ghosts Among Us, Due October 09, 2020


RETURNS MAILED 10/06



As days get shorter and night comes sooner, shadows appear earlier and are more noticeable. We may think of Helpers, Guardians, Protectors, or dearly departed relatives, that we may "see" or only "feel", but who may often council us, protect us, or in general, help us.

Do you believe in ghosts?
Have you ever seen a ghost, heard or felt a ghost, been helped by one, been frightened by one?
Call them spirits, or call them ghosts, be they helpful, frightening, quiet
Whatever form spirits or ghosts arrive in, 1 in 3 Americans believe in them. Do you?

My Maternal Grandmother is my Guardian Ghost, and I cannot tell you how may times she has helped me, as well as created a Miracle on my behalf. I see her passing through the kitchen. I smell her backing Banana nut loaf or date bread. I smell her distinctive "White Roses" cologne when she comes to help, or when she is just "passing through". I am comforted by her presence and her continued interest and care.
I have been told by others that they can smell their late father's aftershave, so we can "smell" ghosts as well as sense them and see them.

Ghosts may be tied to a physical object or to a particular location.
Ghosts may arrive with one of their personal possessions or with a piece of furniture (of theirs) you may have acquired.
You may be surprised to know that even a "New" House can harbor "Old Spirits" if built on the footprint of an "Old Site". An "Old" House may still house the earlier inhabitants - living as ghosts, even if the "Old" house has been removed or destroyed. Have you seen the 1935 movie "The Ghost Goes West", a comedy in which a Scottish castle and its ghost are moved to Florida, a perfect example of ghosts tied to a location.

Ghosts can often be seen or sensed by pets, and some young children, even when their owner is unaware of their presence.
Spirits often gather around the hospital bed of a dying person, perhaps to guide them beyond death's door.
Spirits may remain on this plane, rather than moving on, particularly if they have unfinished business, or if they died violently or unexpectedly.

Ghosts may be naughty children, for children are the most numerous of all ghost sightings.
.....It is theorized that perhaps they do not know they are dead, and continue to "live" and play
They may be playful pirates, or serious battle hardened soldiers, who died in battle, or died violently
They may be screaming Banshees, who, according to Scottish tradition, can foretell an impending death

MIRRORS
In the 19th Century, Victorian funeral customs demanded that mirrors be covered with crepe or veiling to prevent the deceased spirit from getting trapped in the mirror and becoming a resident ghost in that house, consequently not being able to move on to the afterlife.
It is said that viewing a mirror by candlelight will not only show you your own reflection, but will also show you all the ghosts (and any other entities) that inhabit the place where the mirror is hung.
Sometimes family photos would be placed face down to avoid the ghost of the dead possessing the living.

OUIJA BOARD, SEANCES
It is thought that ghosts and spirits may be summoned and/or communicated with through the Ouija board or during a Seance. Create ATCs of Ouija boards or Seances in session.

AUTOMATIC WRITING
Sometimes when a loved one passes on, they may have information they want to/need to share with those left behind.
They may wish to grant assistance in finding lost or misplaced objects.
For those who cannot, or don't wish to, SEE ghosts, many people have had good results with "Automatic Writing", also called "The Moving Hand".
One takes in hand a writing instrument, poises the pen over blank paper, asks a question, clears their mind, closes their eyes, and lets their hand do the work.
One doesn't have to believe in ghosts, or see anything spooky, one just needs to be seeking an answer.
Of course, if the (correct) answer shows up in (dead) Mom's distinctive handwriting, it can be very spooky.

SHE STILL WATCHES
Do you smell her lilac cologne on a cool fall day when all the lilacs have stopped blooming? Do you see her in the morning mist, doing those things she used to do to please you, perhaps making you breakfast? Do you feel her presence at momentous events? Does she comfort you when you need her most? Can you sense she is with you?
You should know, she loves you still.
(This also applies to men, and the smell of Dad's aftershave.)

CLOTHING
Ghosts, when seen, are often wearing the same clothes worn then last alive.
This means they may be wearing the clothing of the time period in which they lived and died, which may be much different from today’s clothing. Or they may be wearing the same clothes worn the last time you saw him/her.

ACTUAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF GHOSTS
Photographs have been taken of ghosts, looking like a double exposure with the outlines of trees and buildings fully visible through the body of the apparition. Make a card depicting this, use a real photograph if you have one.

Try to explore other aspects of ghosts rather than just the "standard" Halloween ghost.
Make ATCs that depict ghosts in their many forms and appearances.
Helpful ghosts, Nasty ghosts, guardian ghosts, poltergeists......
If you want to get into the "spirit" of ghosts, here are some interesting movies to watch:
“Ghost” with Patrick Swayze; or the 1937 movie “Topper”, or follow the TV series of the same name; or watch “High Spirits”, "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" or "Blithe Spirit" with Rex Harrison, which has a very surprising ending. Or watch "The Spirit of Christmas", which is one of my favorites!




* This is a 3 for 3 or 6 for 6 card trade. Make 3 or 6 cards and receive the same number back.

* ALL mediums and techniques are welcome. Please make sure you add some depth to your cards, whatever style you choose. Your mediums can include, but are not limited to: paper, tissue paper, crayon, acrylic, watercolor, gel pens, colored pencil, rubber stamping, ink, newspaper clippings, magazine clippings, etc. Please do not take an image, cut it out, glue it to a card, and call it done. Color the background. Add some texture. Add more than one image. Make the ATC YOUR CREATION! I do ask that you send in your best work. Something you would not be disappointed in receiving if it was sent to you.

* Please sign up by posting to this thread. I will acknowledge you and add your user name to the participant list below.
* ONLY ATCs allowed. No APCs accepted.
* All cards need to be sent each in their own plastic sleeve.
* All cards need to be standard ATC size: 2.5” x 3.5”
* All cards need to be sturdy enough to earn the name “card” (no floppy or flimsy paper). If it is created on a single sheet of paper, and "flimsy", please back your ATC with something stiffer, or more firm, such as a cereal box.
* Just as important, check for cards that are too thick. Each card must still be capable of fitting into the standard ATC sleeve. If your ATC will not fit into an ATC sleeve, it is too bulky.
* Please put the Swap name and your Username on the back of all cards. And please write clearly on everything!
.....We can't give you itrades and/or You Rock! points if we don't know who you are.
* Please confirm there is enough postage on both the envelope you send to me, and the envelope I need to send back to you.
* If you are unsure about mailing ATCs, or just may want to pick up some good tips for shipping, here is a great link.
http://atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=909

* If you are inside the U.S., please include a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches, with 55 cents postage, or one "Forever" stamp if trading 3 cards; or one forever and one 15 cent stamp (additional ounce postage) if trading 6 cards, OR if your cards are extra heavy or extra bulky (or 2 forever stamps if that is easier).

* International participants, if you have U.S. funds, or U.S. postage, it is greatly appreciated. However, since many of you do not have access to U.S. stamps, I will cover your postage. Please include a self addressed envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches (10 x 28 cm), or if you do not have the correct size envelope, please include a large mailing label with your address and I will provide the envelope.

* I apologize for being so demanding about the envelope size, but the postal rates in the US charge extra for thickness. When cards are stacked, or overlapped, in (a smaller) envelope, it almost always costs more to mail. If you send me a small envy, the cards get stacked. When I use the 4 inch by 9 1/2 inch business size envelopes, I can spread the cards over the area, making a THIN package, and only pay for basic (minimum) postage.

* Cards are due IN MY HANDS by October 09, 2020. Please allow sufficient lead time for cards to get to me, particularly if you are an International participant. Returns will be mailed promptly. Late cards will be returned, as it is unfair to those participants who always have their cards in early or on time.

* A hostie card in this theme is appreciated but not at all expected!

* Thank you for considering this swap! If you have my address from previous swaps, it hasn't changed. If you are new, or have misplaced my address, please send me a PM.

Apparently I have used up all my space in this post, so check the following post for the list of participants.

It's Saturday and I'm watching all the spooky hauntings and ghost shows on Travel Channel, getting ideas for this swap! :eek: Right now it's "Believers," interviews with people whose experiences turned them into Believers. The first fellow had several actual video clips of his business' yard where wrecked cars were towed. Definitely a ghost there! But she left when her car was taken somewhere else so it's the car that's haunted, not his yard. Now we're on to an abandoned schoolhouse in Missouri that a couple bought to turn into a B&B. They said that when they bought it, it had just "called" to them. I don't think I'd ever buy a place that "calls" to me!

Ancient Planter
08-02-2020, 12:26 PM
Okay, so NEVER HAVE A SEANCE! That was the message that the retired husband in the haunted Missouri schoolhouse wanted to get out. During the seance his wife became unable to breathe, then she started to cough blood. They stopped the seance. She got sicker and sicker - tuberculosis. This was like 2011 or something, not long ago. Within 6 months she was dead. It ended abruptly with him saying that the seance, and ghost child possession, were what killed his wife, he's sure. Didn't say if they stayed in the schoolhouse after the seance (he'd wanted to leave long before it, but his wife wanted to finish the remodel then sell. Bad idea) or if he left after she died or if he was still in it. It just went from the seance to TB to his strong declaration of NEVER HAVE A SEANCE! That that was the message he was sure his dead wife would want to get out there. We watched a few more episodes before dinner, but at dinnertime the TV has to turn to comedy. I won't watch real-life haunted stuff before bed.

Thought I'd give a few of my own ghost experiences... First, Fort Worden. If you've ever seen the movie An Officer and a Gentleman, it was filmed there. If you attended Teesha Moore's ArtFest, you've been there -- even stayed there? It's an old military fort, built between the late 1800s through WWI, located in Port Townsend, Washington. Notoriously haunted. It was 30 miles from our house and I attended ArtFest 4 times, JournalFest once, and stayed in the dorms 3 times. I had a ghost experience once during my 3 stays, and my friend had one twice. My first night I was awakened by the coat hangers in my room (a single) clanging together. I thought it was the woman in the next room over, doing something with her clothes at 3 am, but she told me later she was sound asleep. Besides, for it to be that loud it had to be in my own little space. I found out later that playing with the coat hangers was a common ghost occurrence in the dorms. A few days later several of us were awakened around 4 with extremely loud bangs on our doors. My friend in the room next to me told me that she'd forgotten to lock her door and she saw the doorknob turning, but the door didn't open. One brave soul (who doesn't believe in ghosts) jumped up and opened her door to confront the person, but no one was there. And the dorms were locked every night so no one could get in (only women allowed in them). Another year, the friend who had left her door unlocked was staying in another dorm and she couldn't sleep so she got up at 4 to take a shower. The showers were like your high school PE showers, communal. So she was in there all alone, soap in her hair, when she heard a man laugh. Washed the soap out and got back to her room quickly to pull the covers over her. I told her that it was probably the ghost of a young soldier who had never seen a woman with a mastectomy before, so one breast was strange to him. Here are some photos:

217420 - me and the dorms. My dorm with the ghost experience was the very last, by the water.

217421 - the 3rd door on the right, behind the 2 women, was my room. My friend was in the room where the door is slightly ajar.

217422 - The buildings in the background were Officer's Housing. You can rent the entire house if you want. I believe it's #10 that's the worst. Teesha told me that every year, whoever is in that house, either leaves or asks for new accommodations because of the ghost(s).

217423 - JFK building. There's something evil in that one. LK Ludwig was going to let me in at night with her key so I could investigate (she told me she'd had some pretty freaky experiences in it), but I chickened out at the thought of "evil"!

SpottedCrow, your cards are fabulous! I'm not signed up yet (lurking) and I'm not at all sure I can make "spooky" cards. After seeing yours, I'm especially intimidated. Maybe I'll check out how to do gel transfers!

SpottedCrow
08-13-2020, 09:30 AM
Nanvan ! You make awesome art.
Packing tape transfers and gel transfers are easy. Lots of how to on You Tube.
Most important is just have fun! That is what VickiZ told me when I first signed up for one of her swaps! ;)

Here are a couple of photos I took at Sachs Bridge in Gettysburg on July 4, 2013, exactly 150 years to the day after the retreat of the Confederates. They crossed over it in defeat after they definitely and most assuredly lost the battle (I've read that a certain someone wants to re-write history to say the Rebs actually won it. No. Nope. The Rebs and Gen. Lee LOST that one, Don). A few of my own ancestors (well, brothers and cousins of my g-g-grandmother) were in it, fighting on the Confederate side and probably crossing over this very bridge as they retreated. It's notoriously haunted and I had my own tearful ghost experience here the night before I took the photos. There are photos of me on a cd somewhere showing the white smears around me that you see in ghost photos, but I'm not sure where they are and, surprisingly, I haven't downloaded them to my laptop. I had a long "conversation" with a spirit of a soldier there, just wish I'd had my recorder on to catch at least my part of it. He was not happy that I was married to a Yankee (my husband's family fought from Pennsylvania) so Alan stayed off the bridge while I talked. Then I moved down beside the bridge, closer to the water, and had another "conversation" with a soldier who died beside the river (as so many of the wounded soldiers did when they were left behind and the river rose when it started raining. They'd been drinking from the river and were too weak to move, thus drowning). I promised him that I would never forget him and that seemed to make him happy.

217538 217539

For me, I'm not sure whether "orbs" are ghosts or just dust. I think most often they really are dust. But I sure caught a lot coming from the bridge! Again, this was exactly 150 years to the day after the retreat of July 4, 1863.

My goal this year is to make one hundred Halloween cards... and trade or swap about half of them !?!?!?!

Here are my first two ghost cards:

The second card has glow-in-the-dark paint. I plan to make more of these (I just LOVE glow-in-the-dark paint.) I've already traded three glowie cards. There WILL BE MORE....

Please sign me up. My grandmother would always tell us not to get up out of a rocking chair and leave it rocking. It would bring back luck. Today, I "googled" and found this out:

It’s bad luck to rock an empty rocking chair. To do so will bring death to your family. (She never mentioned this!!!)

The Irish have always believed that rocking an empty rocking chair welcomes evil spirits into the home. The spirits fill the empty seat that you’re rocking and fill the home with dark forces and bad luck.

Rocking an empty rocking chair will bring the spirits, but a rocking chair that moves by itself might already have a spirit in it.

So, this is what I'm working on!
Please PM your address -- I'll be mailing these out next week! Thanks so much

Vicki Z
09-05-2020, 06:29 PM
Welcome
I signed you up.
I also sent you my addy via PM.

I am looking forward to seeing what you are working on.

The Halloween Stuff is already out!!!!!!!

There was a news item a few days ago, that due to COID-19, candy venders thought trick or treating might be down, so they were sending their Halloween candy to grocery stores early.
But, yesterday, I found a bunch of stores with not only Halloween candy, but also HUGE Halloween displays of other items from nic-nacs to yard inflatables.
Some of the ghosts were wearing gauze face masks, which looked pretty funny.

Remember, deadline for cards to be IN MY HANDS is October9th.
Mail transit time seems to be about a week.

Vicki Z
09-25-2020, 12:55 PM
I just read a press release stating that the post office is not able to meet their own mailing deadlines......
This means delayed mail.

I just received (today) cards mailed on the 15th and on the 17th.
This translates to a 10 day, and an 8 day, mail transit time (for items mailed within the U.S.) as versus an earlier 3-5 day mail transit time.

Please mail early to meet swap deadlines.
Mail is taking longer these days.

Dropped my cards in the mail yesterday.

Here's a preview. If you'd like to see the rest, check out my gallery.

I decided to go with a theme of ghosts in mirrors. Each of my cards has a water transfer image on silver spray painted plastic to get a ghostly effect. The cards look very different from different angles.

Images used for the ghosts and the base designs for the frames were from Pixabay free images.

Vicki Z
09-28-2020, 12:03 AM
AWESOME cards.
Cool effect with the silver spray and water transfer image.
I am not familiar with this technique, so I am really looking forward to seeing these cards in person.
Can't wait.
I will let you know as soon as they arrive.

Vicki Z

Dropped my cards in the mail yesterday 9/27/2020.

Just checked mail, and your cards have not arrived.
This means the 3-4 day transit is not working, and the 8-10 day mail transit time is now in effect.
(I am seeing this mail transit time with numerous other mailings.)
I will continue to watch, and let you know when your cards arrive.

Vicki Z
10-04-2020, 05:11 PM
Cards received from majanga.
Even better in person.
You are correct about how different they look from different angles, and when they are tipped.

All the card sets were in prior to due date, so I mailed out early.
Mail transit seems to be running about 8-10 days, so if you are lucky and receive your returns early, you have been very, very, good this year. If your returns take a week or two, don't panic!

Returns are in the mail!!!

I am DELIGHTED with all of the awesome cards that I received! Excellent cards from Ancient Planner, Boots, JenUrebel, RaineyDay, TerryHEdwards and Vicki Z. My "You rock" comments can't really convey how excellent each of the cards is. THANK YOU AGAIN TO ALL!

How was everyone's Halloween?
This year a Full Moon fell on Halloween, making it the second Full Moon in the same month, and making it a Blue Moon, and falling exactly on Halloween.
This hasn't happened for 44 years.
I hope everyone had a SPOOK-TACULAR Halloween!
