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!)

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.

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.
