I'm so glad to see that this thread is still going strong. It seems like forever since I touched my wee house, but I went to Michael's yesterday and got my inspiration back! Seeing all those Halloween decorations made me realize that Halloween is next month, and I really want to get mine done in time for Halloween.

I'm making time to work on it tonight! The house itself is mostly done, I just need to make all of the accessories.

Knickertwists, I followed your tutorial for making paperclay mushrooms and fairy houses the other night and am thrilled to have my own teeny houses now. I think at least one needs to be in my spooky wee house as well.  Cheesy I'm really loving working with the paperclay, too.

I also had a 50% off coupon so I just had to pick up another house kit. This time I got the gothic house, and I think it's going to be a Victorian steam punk house. It's good motivation to finish the first one so I can start on the next.   Grin

Yay! I love paperclay... I enjoy working with it more than polyclay. Can't wait to see those houses in your spooky house!

ditto that!  My only problem with paper clay is that I use it so infrequently, when I think of using it, it's gotten quite lumpy and yucko... while the 10 year old poly clay is still just fine and dandy. *sigh*

That said, one of my in-progress wee houses is covered in brick made from lumpy old paper clay (trust me, no matter how much moisture I added, this stuff was not losing its lumps) and I quite like the kind of dilapidated effect.  Cheesy

Well, I'm about to start my 3rd house of this craft-a-long!

This one will be a bit of a cheat because I'm starting with this...





My mum saw this one at the side of the road waiting for the garbage truck and booted my dear old granny out to snatch it up before it was lost forever. The plan is to make it over as a Halloweeny house... in about 2 weeks. Eeek! I don't know if I can pull it off, but I sure as heck am going to give it a try Smiley

That's awesome, Knickertwists! If anyone can pull it off, you can!

I started making some wee tiny books for the study in my house. I also added some moss to the roof since I lasted posted some pics. Have a look:



There are a couple of half-finished books on the desk. To the right is a little brain in a jar that a friend made for me. Smiley


Here's the desk as it will be placed in the house.


I also got the little bed halfway finished. It's a bit hard to see, but I painted it gold and glued a little purple mattress to it.


I hope to get several books mostly done tonight. Hooray for progress!

Yay, more Knickertwist magic to witness!
Second hand dollhouses always trigger my imagination. Who played with it, what were they like, where are they now, why did they leave their dollhouse behind?
Good luck with the deadline, I can't wait to see what you do with this new wee house!

Ashgrim, your house is looking great! And the brain in a jar is both fabulous and hilarious!

lol, before I actually read your message, Knickertwist, my brain was spasming a bit because looking at the pics, I knew it wasn't your work, but there the pics were in your post.

I love the visual of your mum and granny snatching this house from impending trashery.

I finished some of my tiny books last night. I'm really pleased with how they came out.


Now only about 20 more to go...
