So ... yeah. Still obsessed with peg dolls. This was a gift for a very good friend who loves Joss Whedon's "Firefly" series. I ripped off the entire thing from a much better set I saw on Etsy. (That's not me being modest -- just honest. Her work is much neater than mine. But I probably drink more while crafting than she does.) So I made this set of 9 figures, then I went to Michael's and got one of those decorative boxes that looks like a book. Has a magnetic closure. The title of this fake book was "Live Laugh Love." Lame. I printed a new title (it's funny if you know Firefly) on some old-looking paper, sprayed it with matte finish, and used some spray adhesive to stick it over the title. It turned out pretty well!




My boys have recently become big fans of Ghostbusters. Again, I shamelessly stole this idea from Etsy. But I added the ghost. That was my own idea.



Thanks for looking!

I love The Ghostbusters! Their proton packs look really good.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.
