Sometimes you never know where a path will take you

About 12 years ago we went to our first HAuNTcon.  This was way before we were involved as much as we are now :)  

It was 2006 and we took lots of classes, learned so much and met so many people that are now our haunt family.  One of those people is Mike Krausert (Tattoo, then with Bad Boys Scenic Design).  We took their foam texturing class and ran with it.  That year we made two major (at least for us at the time) projects

The first was our new mausoleum.

Our first large foam facade was made possible by the skills we learned in that class.

This facade is long gone, we were sad to see it go.  But we went on to build the abbey.

Now this facade is sold and will be on its way to Oklahoma next week.

Stay with me, I have a point. :)  When we put it for sale I got a message from Mike asking why we did not contact him to buy it?  I was like, what?  You could so make something better than that.  He called the abbey a 'work of art'.

Our mentor just called one of our creations a work of art. I would not in my wildest dreams have thought that back in 2006 we would be in in a place where our mentor say that to us.  Just can't believe it.  What a long and very fun journey this has been.  This is why the DG Crew have been longtime supporters of HAuNTcon, who has been a long time supporter of Home Haunters learning and taking it to the next level.  See you all in January
