:googly: I am so excited to share this with you all! Now, I know it's not as exciting as most of the props here....and I still have some learning to do, but I wanted to post my very first homemade tombstone. Constructive criticism is welcome...but remember, I cry easily....so be gentle!
Thanks & I hope you like it!!!

Gee, shucks ya' guys....ya' makin' me blush!!!!
Thank you for the vote of confidence! I am hoping to get a little quicker as I go though....at the rate that this one took, I'll be making tombstones until next easter!
I started my 2nd one tonight and for mother's day, I ordered myself one of those cutters...not the battery one, the "big daddy"....I figured I could make A LOT of things out of foam with it. Thanks again for everyone's ideas, support & suggestions.
By the way, my hubby even came out to the garage (aka dungeon) and was playing around with warping with his torch....I think he's catching the fever. (fingers crossed!!!)

See, we TOLD you the rough lettering would look good!:)
And when you get that under haunt lighting conditions I think that stained weathering job will look really nice, too.

Good luck building a fire under yer ol' boy... the two of you working as a team could kick out a mighty haunt!

Thanks all!! I will have to post some more pics...working on the next (2) stones...the base is just a 2" board, then (2) smaller boards each cut smaller layed on top & glued.... I will have to get in the habit of taking pics as the process is going....but I have to admit, I get so excited to get projects together that I forget to take pics.......anybody else get like that? I even hate it if I have to stop and print out templates, etc. And God forbid if I have to stop to eat or something.....urgh!!!

Boy, I can't wait to see the look on my neighbors faces as I progress along and set things up to see how it's all going to look and work on lighting, etc.....DURING THE SUMMER!!!!! I'm sure I'll have the neighbors talking.......

Ha Ha Ha! Yes, they do talk ALREADY!
I am well known not only for my "Creative Halloween Decor"....but my unique use of antiques and what nots I use in my landscaping....The retired lawyer across the street about $&!+ when I came home with the cutest little out house! Then there's my "pot man" made out of flower pots pushing an old lawn mower....etc, etc. I love knowing that they are probably over there just shaking their heads!
