I like Christmas and Halloween but my boyfriend is nuts over them. He loves to decorate and scare the kids trick or treating (all in good fun). Sooo...long story short I caught the fervor, now I don't know whose nuttier me or him. I started a web site http://www.halloween-christmas-crafts-etc.com
to share some of the ideas on how to make outdoor decorations and then started scanning the forums. Lots of "nutty" company; actually I call it "heart" on my web site. People that decorate for Christmas and then share the decorations inside or out, have heart.
Another part of the story...I couldn't stand to put the blow up stuff or the little blow molds in our yard because I do a lot of artistry type stuff so commercial stuff...well you know I like the original hand made work. So I started down the road to make all my outdoor decorations. We get a lot of drive by's and hopefully this year we will be opening the inside of the "Old School" for visitors (45,000 sq. ft. building). The first floor is traditional and the second floor in Winter Wonder land, it has been a lot of work but great fun. We plan to do the third floor into Santa's Workshop and if we start getting some traffic in years to come we want to open up the gym for booths...people selling their own custom brand of handmade Christmas. My goal is to have all the 23+ trees (inside) with hand made decorations.
If you decorate outside, send me some pictures and if you want I'll put you on the "drive-by" list. I love to drive by yard decorations. Don't you?
If you like to make stuff..take a look at the site and recently I did a video on How to Make Christmas Icicles. Looking forward to all the xmas chat.
