I drew a sketch on what I would like the prop to do and then My hubby works his magic. I really do get all the easy stuff - he does the body, figuring and mechanics if any. Wood, foam a lathe, nails, glue and staples, paint, plaster and more paint and many hours of TLC and you have a Terrific Halloween Prop! It goes from the garage to the kitchen back to the garage too many times to count! Tequila has loved to watch me craft for years as you can see. ❤ She finds it relaxing to watch me because I believe she feels my peace. I am at peace when I create.
Norm is already trying to figure out how to place him so no one steals him. We have decided he will sit just in front of the garage with some candy. He will come when it's over and then where will he go - I've already lost 2 rooms in my home to Halloween Props! Norm said - In the living room! ... I don't think so. ;-)
The more I think about Halloween it really makes me sad. I am going to miss all the kids
"Hey Miss Peschel! I still have that fish you drew for me!" "What's new this year?" "Will I be scared!!?" " Hey remember me!? Last year I was batman!" Hee hee hee.
Now with the all the terrible weather- it is really a good thing the display did not go up- it would have been hard on it - with no dry days in between- not to mention not so many trick or treaters!
Oh well, somethings can't be helped. Just imagine how amazing NEXT year will be!
