  1. Haunted house on Google Maps

    General Halloween
    Anyone ever see their home on Google Maps and realize that the photo is from October?!?! I used GPS on my phone to check for traffic issues on my route home the other day and inadvertently found that the “Street View” for the area was taken in October! Excellent! For some extended time that will...
  2. Hobby Lobby 2019

    General Halloween
    It's happening, and it won't be long before we are in full-on Halloween! Hobby Lobby is putting out fall.

  7. Static: Paper Mache Artists, HELP!

    Halloween Props
    The last time I made something out of paper mache was in the fourth grade, so I am beyond rusty. However, we love the look of props created with paper mache and we're going to increase the number of projects that use it going forward. But there in lies the tale. I'm the one who's going to be...
