Hello from the way back machine . . . .

I was mining my old blog for pictures and thought, heck, why not post while I'm here.

So, in haunt news . . .

I'm heading to HauntCon in a few weeks! This year it's in Birmingham, AL (a place I've never been too before and can check off on my "States I've Had A Drink In" list) and promises to be a great time.  Tons of folks I adore hanging out with will be there and, of course, all the knowledge and new ideas that will be thrown my way will make my head spin.

East Coast Haunt Club
In other news, we had the 15th . . . YES FIFTEENTH!! . . . New England Haunter's Gathering last year.  In case you were wondering, yes, this is the longest running of it's kind.  And, over the year's, it's gone from a one day event with workshops and presentations to a weekend of fun.

For the last several years, we've been kicking it off on Fridays with the Beast Feast of the Northeast.  Everyone brings food and drinks (and drinks, and drinks, and drinks) and we hang out until the wee hours catching up and sharing what we did last Halloween and showing off things we've made and just all kinds of good stuff.

Then on Saturdays, after our full day of learning, lunching, door prizing, raffle ticketing and silent auctioning, we have a costume party with a tasty dinner.

Sundays are a little more low key with those who can sharing a meal or going to Salem or, as we did a few years back at Haunted Overload, seeing a haunt.

Not sure what 2016 will hold, but, as long as I get to spend time with my East Coast Hauntees, that's all that matters!

Still toying with the idea of attending TW this year.  Haven't in quite a few but might just be up for it this time around.

OK, that's it for now.  Hey, maybe I'll try and get this thing back up and running, starting with posts from HauntCon!  Until then . . .

Keep it Creepy!
