    Wow major congrats on your nomination… way to go!!!! And to think I knew you when! ;) I know how hard you've worked and can't imagine a more deserving teacher. I hope you get it. But like they say it's an honor to be nominated and I really mean that. It really sounds like everything's rosie in your neck of the woods yay. :D I'm not here nearly as much either. It seems like so much of our little gang just isn't here anymore. :( Some of the newbies have not been as generous as I would like to...

    For some reason, when I hit reply to PrintersDevil, it says it included it, but in my post it's not showing up. I tried editing the post, but it won't post it. I'll try again tomorrow and see if it works. :)

    bahahaha That's awesome! This year I will avoid buying anything taffy like; starburst, tootsie rolls, etc. Lucky me, I've been introduced to the world of spacers as my kid begins the orthodontic process (yay :eek:) along with several other of his friends. I do agree, anything with nuts tends to go into the yuck pile. lol Every kid is different so I think variety is the best bet. :)

    Teach me to take good pictures like yours.... ugh. I have a really nice camera, but have no idea what all the do-hickies are. Love your pictures as always.

    A few years back I bought a skeleton hand from Michael's to hold an apple for my poison apple display. I did see last year that they still carried them, not sure about this year. They are reasonable too, under $5. They weren't with the rest of the Halloween decor but in one of the center displays by the jewelry making beads and such. Wish I had a picture of it for you.

    You have a picture of an apparition. What if that is in the window, becoming the centerpiece. That would draw your eye away from the trellis. You could really use it to frame that window up. Wow! You have some great bones to work with there. Does it get a lot of wind? I could see skeleton sentinels an each side of the window, in front of the trellis' (which I LOVE btw).

    I'm with you all the way. The anticipation of what is not seen really get's the mind going. Trees rustling in the breeze, dark shadows you have to walk thru. QUIET. Creeps the hell out of me. lol 45 and still scared of the dark. :rolleyes: I personally love Pumpkinrot's work. It's so organic and almost like nature is coming alive, and not in a warm and fuzzy way either.

    Before Scene Setters were out I had a long white wall with nothing on it. Using black crepe paper I created a picket fence. With black poster paper I cut out a cat, bats, crows. With yellow paper I cut out a moon. Taped it all up to create a large scene. Cost next to nothing, mostly my time and no need to store it. You could play with shadows as well.

    Do you have a Menards near by? They have a pretty decent selection of colored LED bulbs.

    Jackielantern replied to a thread Static: Plasticorpsing! in Halloween Props
    It works well. :) I tried it a few years back. I have noticed that after a season or to the stain was flaking off in a couple areas and I can equate it back to a different plastic then I used on the rest. Not sure what was different about it though.

    Hobby Lobby has nice fabric, but selection is limited. ALWAYS go to there website and bring up the 40% off coupon on your phone. They will take the discount from there. So sweet. I have bought a fair amount of fabric from (owned by amazon). I have always been happy with the quality but have noticed that the website pictures run dark. Most of the time the fabric is much brighter/lighter. Be aware of shipping times. I always go for the free shipping over $35 and it will take...
