    Congratulations on the limb removal. I was worried you were gonna be stumped. We've had so many in-laws visiting I'm thinking of putting my family tree through the wood chipper. I'll be here all week.

    Looks like we CAN just scrap the stupid paint off the mirror. Just gotta figure out what nasty little tool is safest for the glass. (My keys scratch everything else up, figured it might work on the paint.)

    I am shocked - SHOCKED I tell ya. You mean there's just a mere mortal behind the curtain? ;)

    We initially wondered about the mirror but we saw another one there which had a scratch through the paint and thought...How hard could it be? We'll mess around.

    It's not so much the organ part. Just looking for some kind of material that would be flexible enough to bend around a corner while strong enough to hold it's shape. We could buy rolls of veneer but it's not super cheap and I don' t know how well it would hold up without a backing. But I appreciate the response. Hope all is going well.

    Hey you! Hope setup is going well. :)

    I got two questions for the expert.
    1) We bought a mirror from Micheals that had a skull screened on the front of it - we want to take that off. Seems like a real mirror (it's heavy). Would the stuff you recommend for removing paint off blowmolds work? We don't want to damage the glass (I think the frame is a resin.)
    2) Working on the organ...we're modelling it very loosely on the Haunted Mansion version. The wood curves in the area where the keyboard is. Any thoughts on what we could user there? You just seem to know stuff. :)

    No worries if you're too busy with setup to reply. We'll figure something out.

    Hey,
    Those bats are super easy to make :)
    All I did was make a paper bat pattern and transfer the pattern to a light weight piece of black material, cut it out, then I just pinned it to the existing hummingbird body. Painted the motor and ground stake black, and BAM, done ;)
    Oh, I painted the hummingbird black too :)
    Thanks for your nice comments! :)

    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. :)

    I'm revisiting those flying hummingbird/bat contraption thingamajigs. Thinking about having 3 of them attached to the back of a tombstone, so from the front, they look like they are flying around the stone.
    I'll let you know how it goes. :)

    Hey Miss Hilida!

    Haven't dropped in to say Hello in a while thought I'd see how all is going! Love all the great photos you've been posting. The Harry Potter items are fantastic just as I would expect form you. Hope all is well with you and yours as the haunting season draws near. And I would like to *** a belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

    And thanks for the tombstone comment. I was aping the "I'm not crying, you're crying" thing, but I don't know if anyone will get that. I keep forgetting that people don't have access to my head.

    Hey you. I was telling my wife this morning that I was worried about you. Seemed like you were MIA for a couple days! I was hoping you were just out setting up. He's gotta take down the whole tree? I'm guessing that's like a decent sized fortune. :(

    Glad you got a plan of attack though. I bet you everything falls into place for you once that's done. And I'll cross my fingers that the tree does too. ;)
