Hey! Did you make that totally ROCKS! I bought one this year on impulse... You can see it on my blog. I only have a few ornaments so far. This city sucks...can't find any Halloween stuff unless you go to HOBBY LOBBY. No offense but I want creepier ones!
I have some finger puppets on mine. I'm going to make some ornaments....sooner or later!
