    Lack of free time--further hampered by my procrastination, lack of good supply stores in town, the anxiety of not feeling ready even when the ToTs are starting towards the door (that darn dream!!), how quickly it's all over--even though we have ToTing two nights here...towns that I've lived in where ToTing is only one night (oh, that was difficult for me to get used to!) ...Halloween nightmares of not being prepared (although I secretly like those dreams in a sense, because I love...

    People are ready and shipped, and I'm still making stuff! ;) Idea #1 didn't pan out for me. It was my first time making papier mache clay, and I didn't put enough mold deterrent in it. Yuck! So I have another idea that might work out similarly, but I am missing one piece for it. I've searched the basement twice, and I know it's in there. It should come together quickly if I can find it. If not, then I will have to use a backup item. :) I have a couple of backup items that aren't quite...

    I was thinking that you can make something very similar to Mod Podge with school glue and water...may require other ingredients that I don't recall, but I bet there are tutorials on the net. :)

    I've gotten one project done. Still haven't gotten the other one started but I know once I gather all the supplies and sit down it won't take maybe an hour if that. But all the little monsters want to do is swim and with the littlest only being 4 I must be in the pool with her! I do have to say I've never been so tan and I don't know what to think of it! I've always been super pale thanks to my Irish heritage. But this is the first time we've owned a pool and the monsters just can't get enough...

    foolishmortal42 replied to a thread Static: Tombstone Adornments?? in Halloween Props
    Home Depot has some small wood adornments as well. These are found in the molding section. You can also try Hobby Lobby. At Home, formally garden ridge usually has angels and Cherub statues this time of year in the outdoor section. They start to go on clearance this time of year so you have to get them soon.

    You can buy cheap wigs for Halloween costumes on Amazon or costume sites. Get a white long hair wigs. You then cut strands of the hair and hot glue to the FCG. You build up layers to get the thickness you want. I have used this technique for skeletons and it works well and is easy. Hope this helps.

    I'm going through a slight tug of war with myself over an item, too. Although I picked it out specifically for my victim, even before I knew who they were, I was also afraid of it/them being broken in shipment, because they're ceramic and oddly shaped. That aside, it's really two items that looks like a coordinated pair, even though Goodwill had them priced separately (and I believe that I got them at half off, so it was like getting the second free, anyway). So...do I send them as a set...

    ...and then I went back to my secret Pinterest board for reapers, and realized that I forgot about the first two projects I intended to make. I'm waiting on a piece for one, and it may not arrive in time, so that may be out. The other is another thing that I needed the clay for. Definitely time to make a list!

    I keep forgetting what I plan on sending, I really need to write it down! I know of 5 things that I'm hopeful will work out (I actually broke one, and have to start it over!). After that, I am going to have to wing it to come up with other pieces. One thing that I was waiting for, is not going to pan out. It's a shame, because I think that it would have gone over rather well. I went out today in search of an old blender, to help shred recycled takeout drink holders for my "clay". All...

    My older sister had those books and I "borrowed" them when I was about 10. I fell in love with Merlin. :) I used to sneak into her room when she was out babysitting (she's quite a bit older than I am), and sit in her beanbag and read her books. In fact, I loved them so much, that my first dog's middle name was Emrys, after Myrddin Emrys. (he was a purebred Husky, and the AKC paperwork suggested giving him an unusual name)

    I guess I just don't "get" the swinging props. I suppose that they do move more than the usual props, but they move too fast, and too obviously a mechanical movement. (not to mention their scripts...) I love the gargoyle tombstone, though! The witch is cool, I guess I haven't seen the reaper that used a similar script.

    Things that aren't necessarily Halloweenish, that is. For instance, we have a street light in front of our house (on our side...I really want to get up there and paint the back half of the glass black!). It's been out of order for two whole weeks, and I am not reporting it! I love it, and hope that the city doesn't notice it until after Halloween. :D I hope that none of our neighbors report it, either. However, I'm not convinced that the city would fix it in a timely matter anyway, as...

    I adore that antique sofa! I would use it year round, if I didn't have pets and kids. :) I like the lamp, too. I keep passing up a pretty lamp without a shade, with a big orange faceted "jewel" bottom at our Goodwill. I may cave and buy it next time if it's still there, even though I don't literally NEED it. I would love to re-make it for Halloween. I picked up a sort of "cheesy" old lamp at Goodwill not long ago, that was intended for Halloween, but now sits in our living room. I love it...

    I agree, that torchiere is GORGEOUS! I am also a big fan of the witch hat. Those are Hallmark brand, and sell for $19.99 new, if I'm not mistaken. I always think about picking one up when they go on clearance, but I haven't yet. :)

    I was out thrifting a few days ago; mostly looking for things for my step-grand-daughter, whom I've started babysitting. :D I was also hoping to find some cool stuff for the exchange, but I didn't manage to find anything that fit their list. I guess it's too early in my neck of the woods. I did find something for me, though! A cut-out metal lamp with orange "rice paper" backing, WITH tags (although no price). It's electric, has an orange bulb, and best of all, it works! The paper has come...

I suggest that we stack the bodies in the cellar, lock it, leave quietly one at a time and forget that any of this has ever happened.
