I’ve been doing a lot of cleaning and modifications to the website’s HTML code lately. Hopefully, you shouldn’t see any difference. But, if you do find something that looks out-of-place, please contact me immediately.
As the site was being cleaned and refreshed, a few links have been changed. If you currently link to one of the following projects/crafts, please update your links.
The old links will automatically be re-directed to the new page locations, but it’s always good practice to keep links updated if you can help it.
The social icons on each news post have been given an extreme makeover, and new ones have been added. Whether you’re on Twitter, Facebook, Google +, Reddit, Pinterest, or other social media sites, you have more options to share what you find interesting.

It’s here! The haunting season is upon us . . . well, it is for us.
Welcome to another year of the Haunted Experience. This year was a toss-up between themes: Pirates of the Caribbean or Nightmare Before Christmas. Decisions, decisions. Ultimately, the choice went to Nightmare despite wanting to do Pirates.
Today debuts the website’s new layout, which is very similar to the previous one. Only, this time we’re going with cleaner, simpler graphics, and Nightmare fitted with that look far more than Pirates. We’re also using HTML5 and CSS3 (still learning, but very similar to what we’ve been using in the past).
Along with the new layout comes some subtle improvements like new Special Event calendars, a new menu system, and the correction of several coding errors.
If you are viewing the website on a monitor wider than 1024 pixels, and you are using a modern browser with CSS3 support, you may have noticed the new graphic border along the bottom sides of the screen. If you scroll all of the way down, you will see a magical transformation.
Becky submitted a G-scale version of the Casey Junior Station, and I finally got around to uploading it.
June and July have been busy for me. Lots of personal surprises have popped up out of nowhere, and they’ve not all been pleasant. I have, indeed, started designing the new site design, but it went straight to the back burner after a few days. I’m itching to get back to it, especially since a new Halloween layover will have to be created and finished in time for September.
Since I threw my back out a while ago, I haven’t been able to sit for long periods of time. It’s hard to find a comfortable chair, and my spine can only take so much pressure. Come to think of it, I can’t really lie down for too long either. Standing is the worst. It’s quite a conundrum. Needless to say, I have to make my brief spurts on the computer quick and productive.
Being away from the computer has shifted my thoughts to re-designing this website using HTML 5 & CSS 3, and getting inspiration from an old design. I think it’s time for something light and airy again.
