Wouldn’t you know it, I was walking down a very dangerous uninhibited alley full of horrible smells and dumpsters and canisters full of bubbling slime, just the kind of place I like to walk alone and explore. Right next to a canister of what could only be described as fetid rotting snot was a very old and decrepit curiously interesting cardboard box, covered in “DO NOT OPEN” and “PROPERTY OF MARIE CURIE” labels. It was scuffed with grease stains and had the faint smell of clorox, and I was strangely, magnetically pulled toward its contents. I knelt down, pulled opent the flaps. There was kind of an explosion, a loud “MON DIEU! Vous avez fait une erreur énorme! IMBECILE!”  (too bad I don’t speak French) and sort of a weird apparition of a women flew out of the box, she was kind of old-timey looking and green, but definitely irritated. Honestly, I think my eyes were just playing tricks on me. I was quite startled by this event, but managed to calm myself and get back to the box and thank goodness, because what a delight!

What a craft find, tons of packets of weirdly questionable magical glow-in-the-dark skeleton and tombstone crafts! These are so easy to make, you just “peel to reveal” the adhesive and then pour on the colored sand and voila, you have yourself an exciting project. I’m not sure if it’s safe to use these, I scoured the rest of the alley and found some lizard gizzards and some rat whiskers, but nothing else was as cool as these radioactive glowy sand crafts.
