Ohhh Noooo!! Sounds like you have had a rotten few months!! I'm so sorry to hear about that! I know how it is when you get mad at yourself for doing something you know better than to do but, for whatever reason we push on! lol I have done the same kind of thing... It sounds like your spririts are high and that you are on the road to recovery so for that, I am happy. At lease when you do something, you don't "cut" corners.. you make sure to do it ALL THE WAY!! Seriously though, I hope rehab goes okay and you are back to carving pumpkins soon.
The house falling through wasn't a big deal. I like the house I live in and the locations so the only crappy part was the money spent. I am in the process of seeing how much of it (if any) I can recoup. I could buy a lot of Halloween stuff with that money!
Well, keep me posted on your therapy and let me know what you're up to now and then.. If your board, you can always run new ideas past me. I'm a good listener.
Hey you!!! Good to see you back! Hopefully you just took a little break and it wasn't any unwanted drama that kept you away.
I'm doing well (thanks for asking) We were planning on moving so we were busy packing etc. but, the deal fell through so now we are busy UNpacking. lol I haven't really worked on anything Halloween related. I have went to a couple yard sales though and bought a few things !! (much to my hubby's chagrin!) My upstairs bedroom is full of spiders, spider victims, etc.
How about you? what cha been up to? Oh!! and thank you for the compliments on my pics.
Glad you liked the underworld photo. I find that depending on the monitor I view it from I can't see it very well. I had used some of the RED LED finger lights to highlight the demons faces but they didn't last very long.
17 MORE???! You're insane! Or you have a bionic arm. Or maybe both! Can't wait to see them though. I was just looking at your JoL's from last year and they. are. AMAZING! I'm a sucker for the simple though, so I think the one with the cross eyes is my favourite.
Great quality photos too.
I finished putting together my Frankenstein today - he's a favourite but I tweaked him a fair bit to give him a little more presence. I also worked on my new peeper, which I didn't think would work, but it's looking promising. It'll be a fun one if it goes as planned.
3!!!!! You better get to movin!! lol Someone is going to be a busy little bee for the rest of the week!! Do the kids just clean the pumpkins out or do they actually carve some of them? Don't forget to take pics!!!
Things are coming along! I have to re-do my Grave Digger's body because I bought some "joints" that allow his PVC body to be posed more realistically. I made his face from paper mache so, I can't put him out until Halloween night. I will also move all my witches outside that night. Other than that, I need to get my spot lights on the props I want highlighted and that's about it for me. How about you?? How's it coming along? Did you get all the pumpkins carved?? Your hands have got to be sore for days after carving all of those!
Hey Revned, thanks for the friend request. As for what colour to paint her, I'd just do what you feel - you've got serious skills so anything will turn out awesome. But if one method seems like a chore, I'd go with the one that seems most enjoyable to do. You can always plus things next year (you haven't left yourself much room for improvement though.)
