Our Halloween Witch is Carri Benson, who...


Our Halloween Witch is Carri Benson, who is dressed in the same outfit that she plans to wear to work tomorrow at The Paper Shop in Timonium. Carri loves to dress for all occasions and when she's not planning her costumes for that next occasion, she spends her time writing whimsical short stories and poetry. Her hobbies include making ghoulade and attending Grateful Dead concerts. Happy Halloween!
