... And We're Off !!

It took a bit of patience, pre-planning, and a whole lotta' labor to put away the graveyard of Shingle Creek Manor this year without resorting to off site storage somewhere. All the while I plotted and planned for something even bigger this next year, of which I'm sure the reality of it not being possible with just the two of us will slap me in the face around mid-Summer. For now, the shop is back to normal and the props have been neatly put away, and the stress of Christmas is upon us...

We hope everyone had an excellent Thanksgiving and found plenty to thankful for. Although Christmas had already found it's way to our store shelves before Halloween had even arrived, the official starting flag was waved today with the ridiculousness of Black Friday. So like many of you we are running the race of gift buying, cookie making, Christmas card sending, food baking,  house decorating, before the big day panic that is Christmas. Good times....!

Shingle Creek Manor 2012

Hopefully everyone had a great Halloween!

We had some really nice weather except strong winds hindered us during setup and we never got setup until Halloween which limited my time to take photos. I did manage a few and tried to build a video out of them. I'll probably send it in to the Home Haunters Videos this year because I said I would, but I can do much better with more time to take photos.
