i'm just curious as most of us took part in this challenge but do you prefer store bought decorations or home made? my haunt is about 60% home made and 40% store bought but i love and appreciate the home made stuff much more.. what is everyone's thoughts on this??

I'd say I'm as close to 100% homemade as can be with the Halloween decorations. Lights, sounds, and atmospherics (like fog) aside, I produce everything myself. I come up with different themes every year and create a unique experience that works very well in person. If I get an idea from a tutorial online, I customize it to fit my needs and never just do someone else's idea (be it in print, online, or seen in person) and throw it up in my yard.

Nope. Homemade is the Halloween philosophy I subscribe to. It guarantees a reaction because no one who visits the house has ever seen anything like it before or will see anything like it again (except for the annual knock offs in the neighborhood, and even then they just buy their items and present them in similar ways to my homemade decorations).

I love a share of both home made and store bought as together they always bring a perfect look

I like a little bit of both but I lean more towards homemade.  I try to combine the homemade with store bought when decorating.

Organize your life around your dreams and watch them come true.

I like both of them. Store bought is also as good as home made.
