Random musings and memories on the year that was.
Meeting the Bloodshed Brothers - realizing that I might have been mistaken to move from SoCal - who knew that Temecula would turn out to be such a cool place - well, at least cool people, cool people that bring me champagne. Those are the best cool people. :)
Extreme Home Makeover and wondering what the hell have we gotten ourselves into.....we cannot do this, we are in over our heads! Help! I am going to start freaking out!!!
Giving up Hauntcon and remodeling the basement to go to the UK. Really, that was a harder decision than you would think.
Cup of tea in hand, leaning on the window frame, enjoying the view of St. Micheal's Mount from our flat window in Penzance.
Feeling more than a little sad to discover the heads of the angels have worn off the abbey in Bath, that was always one of my favorite things to see.
Meeting yet another brilliant and uber talented Canadian. I think there is something in the water there. Ghoul Friday is even cooler in person than she is on her blog
Oh and ShellHawk - damn, I so want to be that awesome. She is on my list of people that I want to be in my next life...or this one. I think she might be using it right now...anyway, watching her work progress has been an huge inspiration. And she has the best convention outfits ever!
I smile every time I think of Alex from Extreme Home Makeover - one of the hardest working people I have ever met. Made the whole experience a blast. As she always said to us....20+ times a day (at least.) "You are a rock star!" - No, Alex YOU are the rock star!"
Davis Graveyard drive in! It is Hammer film time! Drinking is not just a good idea....it is manditory.
Rob Zombie is soft spoken, laid back and cool.
got fan mail.
I will work a prop to death...sometimes past death.....It has taken us about three years to finally get my Luminary where I am happy with it.
LOLcat posts....some people like them....some people hate them.
Davis Graveyard won the 2009 Home Haunt of the Year form the Home Haunters Association!!! Nice - and glittery :)
Santa works part time at my work.
Our crew is the best. How many friends can you get to spend four days almost 24 hours a day working on a haunt that is not even ours.
A whole lot of people working away in a sea of pink foam.
lamest Christmas card of my Christmas card making career. I am sorry everyone. I will do better next time.
Learn from my lesson....if anyone from Extreme Home Makeover calls you say...."I am busy that weekend." :D
Police stopping by, someone called because there was "a guy with a gun" in the neighborhood....it was just Dan webbing the yard! :D
Smiling faces on the students in our classes.
I discovered the story The Mousehole Cat and the show Doc Martin - thanks Cornwall - BTW you were lovely too.
Watching Freddy and Jason having a dance off to "Dancing Queen" at WCHC
Davis Graveyard theme song for the year was "Your Brains"
Interviewing Halloween bloggers is great fun...looking forward to talking to more of you.
I am never taking anyone on a ghost tour in Edinburgh. Next time I go by myself!
The bartender at our party tried to kill me.
When creating a laying down body form out of chicken wire.....fill in the body form - cause when Hal sleeps on it while "guarding" the yard....the chest and stomach will collapse.
Batting and monster mud seemed like a good idea.....but is not. It is a really bad idea actually.
I lost many hours of my life to Plants vs. Zombies But I had a great time.
Spiderfest 2010. Getting boxes with spiders in the mail........truly creepy....and fun...but mostly creepy. And yes, I am still afraid of spiders :)
I got the pleasure of introducing my blog friends to The Poxy Boggards....you are welcome :D
Husband and I still test our marriage every year while creating our video......seriously, putting up and running the display for a month is not near as grueling :D
Planning a three week trip to the UK - with one week of it being with a group of people, some who have never traveled before....in October, while the yard is up was not one of our better ideas :)
I discovered Tim Minchin....how in the world did he fall under my radar!?
It REALLY sucks when it rains on our party night!
looks magnificent in the snow.
Bye 2010.....nice to meet you 2011!
