Haunted Mirror

I think this mirror would be great in my entryway. I'd like to hang it on my wall with a small amount of light shining on it.

Conjure up the illusion of haunted spirits with this easy project.  See instructions here:

Hold on to the essence of a scarecrow.  It doesn't mind troubles passing through, nor does it provide the opportunity for them to settle. -Anonymous

The Ten Minute Tombstone

The Ten Minute Tombstone
For those of you that would like a sturdier, larger tombstone than a tombstone you would find at the store, here are do-it-yourself instructions. I really like the look of this tombstone, I think it looks more realistic than some that I have seen. I have very strong winds here so I will have to alter it a bit but I think it will be better than the others I have. I can't wait to make one.

Halloween is my favorite holiday. It's thrilling and fun. I secretly love scary movies and I'm a closet freak.  I like gore and gross stuff, as long as it's not real. I like all things mythical, supernatural and paranormal. Therefore, I will be posting all kinds of things that are Halloween related. Some may be DIY projects, some may be pictures or videos but they will all have the Halloween theme. So........

Our pumpkins from last year!!!

This is the 2011 Darth Maul pumpkin for my oldest son
This is the 2011 Minnie Mouse pumpkin for my daughter

My Bucket List

Tomorrow is my birthday and I'll be 35 years old. This birthday has really got me thinking about things I should have/would have done in my life. I've decided to make a Bucket List to help me decide what I want to accomplish before I die. This will be an ongoing process, I'm sure I will always find things I want to experience. My list is in no particular order and some are more important to me than others. Here I go...I'm starting my journey today.

1. Get my master's degree or, if possible, my doctorate.
2. Have my steampunk or men's jewelry line featured in a magazine
3. Go to Italy and Greece
4. Parasail
5. Waterski
6. Snowboard
7. Donate a LARGE sum to Breast Cancer Awareness & St. Jude Children's Hospital
8. Learn and be efficient in some type of martial arts
9. Go to Paris and take a cooking class
10. Learn glass-blowing
11. Learn to weld
