Thanks for the Halloween postcard! Answered

So somewhere between 1 - 3 weeks ago I got a PM saying I have done something to receive a prize/package.  I don't know who or how many people got one. If you got one comment! Please read what it says:

Trick or Treat!

Halloween is my favorite holiday. It's also the last traditional holiday where everyone agrees that doing it yourself is best. Plastic store-bought mask, or homemade full-body costume? There's simply no contest. I still have fond memories of building a haunted front porch every year at our old Somerville, MA house. All of the neighborhood kids loved to watch as I installed an elaborate set of homemade gadgets, but when they returned after dark they were almost too scared to ask for candy!

Halloween is the highlight of the year for Instructables, too - it showcases the incredible variety of our community's creativity. I really appreciate that you've chosen to contribute your projects, your passion, and your time, and I hope you've found something unexpected, fascinating, useful, and fun on Instructables as well! You're an important part of our community, so I wanted to take a moment to write and send my thanks.

Now, back to work on mt own costume... Happy Halloween!

(Then  Eric physically signed it)

(Then back to text)

Then hidden in the envelope were 2 Instructable stickers. This post card means alot, so I will keep it in the envelope with the stickers unused for safe keeps :)

Thank you Eric, Instructables robot, and every other creator of Instructables!

I got a PM, but I didn't want to give them my address. I can imagine explaining that to my parents...
"How do they know our address...?"

 Thanks Eric!

Mine was especially awesome because I didn't know it was coming, they must already know my address. Looked in the mail today and saw the orange envelope and thought naw, can't be! Loved the surprise!
