Yes thank you for all the positive post it made me feel a little better Im excited for all new stuff just slightly bummed out... I will try to make it a short story but got hit with the recession hard had to give up my place and my husband,my kids and myself had to move in with my mother in law, we were living with her and her other son in a two bedroom apartment so we were on the floor and had to get rid of what we could and put the rest in the storage so my halloween and my christmas stuff cause I also really like decorating for christmas and some other stuff was put in storage till we could move out.... well my husband finally was making enough for us to move out so we did we switched the address to our storage cause we were still in the process of getting everything out and getting stuff moved in between his job and everything but then it went bad again... They cut my husbands hours ( i stay at home with our kids day care is outrageous) and pay so we had to choice between paying the storage or roof and food for ourselves and kids and that always comes first so I made the desion to let them sell what was left in the storage to get their money.

Thank you

wow, that is real hard. i hope things get better for you guys. i know what you mean about recession though. i've been working 7 days a week. 8 to 9 hours a day hoping to make living costs. things have got to get better, i just know it. i'll keep you in my thoughts.
Thank you It wasn't a hard choice but an unfortunate necessary one... 7 days a week only 8 to 9 hours??? I am so sorry to hear that for you that is really hard to make living cost like that. I think were all on our way of not being affected by this recession but it is going to be a hard long winding road to get over it, but I hope a lot of luck comes your way and everyone elses who are cutting back to make ends meet. And I will keep you in my thoughts as well thank you again

Thank you wolfman... yes it is the spanish word for witch thought it was kinda creative : ) I think we all go through one time or another having to pick up pieces and rebuild... sometimes you just need to vent but it is better to have what can't be rebuilt

Bruja, I am sorry to hear of youor trubles, and the loss of your halloween,what a shame!
the good thing about starting now is hitting garage sales, and thrift stores, and getting things to make your own props and items,, hopefully for a small price(the way I like it best!)
Thank You... yes I am already starting to look at craigslist and thrift stores and saw the post on dollar tree finds so that is exciting and I have never had an issue with cheap :D

Bruja,
So sorry to hear that you have been a victim of these very hard and uncertain times that we all face.
It is very difficult to know what to say when somebody has lost something of sentimental value. Yes, the Halloween props can be rebuilt bigger and better and hopefully things are looking up for you a little now so you can hit those garage and yard sales..All very positive comments from the good people here and it is very important to remain positive, and although it's difficult to see at the time, It can often be the catalyst for a fresh start on many levels.

The sentimental items are a different matter and are probably irreplaceable, I have 2 small christmas tree decorations that were hand made by my Great Grandmother in 1902. they are tiny and threadbare..but totally priceless to me. I would be devastated if I ever lost them, so You have my deepest sympathy in this respect.

I am probably too far away to be able to contribute any props to "kick start" your Halloween this year, but I think somebody earlier in the thread mentioned starting a help fund or something along those lines. If this is up and running and somebody could pm me the details, I would be more than happy to make a contribution.

Wishing you luck for the future.
Thank you so much yeah loosing the sentimental stuff is what effected me the most I had something from my great grandmother in my christmas stuff and something from my mother in my halloween but im actually doing better then I thought I would be doing. Things happen I know there are tons have people who have lost more then me. And like everyone has said to me and I really appreciate it now is a great time to move on and rebuild and thank you for the offer of contributing that was a very nice offer

Bruja,

I just wanted to say that I understand completely. I went thru the same thing. My ex-wife had enough of my Halloween perversions and decided she wanted a divorce. I had just got contacted from HGTV about putting me on a Halloween show they were having and my ex didn’t want any part of it. A couple of months later she wanted a divorce. When I left she threw out most of my Halloweens stuff, including my crypt and the new stirring witch I was making.

But like you I am moving forward. I finally bought a house and I ready to start making stuff again. But it is slow moving since I don’t have a lot of tools. But like you I am moving forward.
Death Touch, I am so sorry to hear that happened to you I wish you all the best of luck in your moving forward good job keeping with it and not letting her destroy your halloween spirit
