Here is my first button! I've created it for the Monster-A-Long. Go over there and check it out!
For Halloween, my husband and I enjoy creating our own MonsterFest. We used to watch AMC's Monsterfest, but then, it really started going downhill, and so we started our own. (The climax of AMC's MonsterFests was when they had Roger Corman host it as Dr. Gorman. It was INCREDIBLE that year. After that, they went downhill fast.)
Last year, I wrote down all that we viewed and listened to (we include old time radio shows) for the event. We started on Oct. 11 and ended our festival on October 31st. I've begun planning for this years Monsterfest. To do so, I got out last years list. I thought I would share it with you.
