What I Learned - 2015

Didn't see a thread dedicated to this yet. So I'll start.

1. Rusty old chains make wonderful wind tie-downs! I draped them over my tombstones and crisscrossed them over coffins to keep the wind from destroying my lighter props. Not only did it work, but the look was perfect... especially over the coffins! I'll be doing this from now on. MUCH easier than tying off to stakes and super fast to take down.

2. I will finally get a better system in place for organization. While my stuff is all back inside- it is not yet put away. I vow to organize as I put away and inventory everything as I go. I really see how a huge plan-ahead is invaluable. Thanks to all who've suggested organizing tips throughout the year. Muuuaaah!

What was your take-away from 2015 Halloween?

I agree with RCIAG - keep it simple! I am done killing myself to put up an elaborate display. The only thing people really noticed was the skeleton projection light I had shining on my garage door. Kids were mesmerized by it! I have to admit, it did look pretty cool. I set up a few tombstones on scrap pieces of wood so they would stand up on the driveway, spread a bag of mulch to look like dirt, added a few carved pumpkins and situated my projection light behind one of the pumpkins. The skeletons looked like they were rising up from the tombstones. The whole thing took 15 minutes to set up and take down.
Lesson learned: time to simplify!
