1  Re: Wee House Craftalong-Ongoing 2011-Forever! in Craftalongs by javaannie on: June 10, 2013 10:12:31 AM
I've been lurking this thread for a while now. Hubs even gave me the house kit about a year ago, but I haven't even opened it. The assembly is more daunting to me than the customization. So, last weekend I found this diamond-in-the-rough at a yard sale for $2. It is screwed together, so much easier to take apart/put together. I've already had some practice since I forgot to take "before" pics before I took it apart to clean and sand. The pics are after I sanded and cleaned off all of the scribbles, stickers and grime. I figure by posting it here, I'll be more motivated to keep working on it. It is going to be a fun project for my 11 y.o. DD and I this summer. Last night, I took apart (again) and primed it. Before I continue, I need to make a sketch of rooms and such. I am planning on adding dividers to break up the big rooms. Here we go .....

Received 2 awesome ATCs before our 2nd blizzard hit. The first is from cmarion3 for my bird theme. the bird/frame cut-out is fabric and there is a lot of little fibres and such layered in the background - love it!

The second is from llisaredd for my coffee theme, a gorgeous watercolor using both watercolors and actual coffee! Very cool. I'm curious to know how you did the masking for "coffee." Stickers?

Finally had a chance to post, sorry for the bad scan. This is the card I received from cabaute for my bird theme - a pretty flamingo. Unfortunately you can't see all the subtle background colors because the scanner will not pick them up. Such a pretty card that makes me think of warmer days ahead. Thanks!

Hold onto your hats, people! I received, not 1, but three ATCs from corchen for my Edward Gorey theme.

They are the most awesome awesomeness ever! There is one for each of my family members, and I don't even think I posted my dh's name, which is Christopher! There is one for my daughter, Ryan, who is a Lego fanatic, it even looks like her. There is another with me running from ravens (another one of my themes, I might add). And then there's my hubs, peeking out from the woods. These are absolutely amazing, thank you so much, corchen! I hope to be claimed by you again.

My internet service has been wonky for days and I haven't been able to upload or download anything - Ugh! So, finally, here is the awesome Harry Potter themed card I received from Jillybeans! It's my first HP card, I assumed it would be a character or house but it's a spell! I don't know why I didn't think of that, now I really want a series of spells. I may have to change my HP theme to HP spells. Thanks so much, Jillybeans.

I received from michelleandbean yesterday for my woodland theme.

I really like the owl silhouette and you can't go wrong with a red & white mushroom! Thanks!

7  some repurposed Halloween decorations in Halloween Decor and Parties by javaannie on: September 26, 2012 12:57:35 PM
Here's some stuff I made for Halloween decor. I found the wooden houses at Goodwill, they were very country-looking and spelled out NOEL.

The frames are the thrift store, gold-gilt variety that I sprayed glossy black. The plaque (picked up at a rummage sale) started plain, I sprayed it black, mod podged the image, then glued a small frame that the back had torn off of. I love that, at first, she looks like a proper Victorian Lady, but when you look closer, she's half-octopus.

 I also made some smaller haunted houses, but I forgot to take pics before they headed to the shop. The backgrounds are old dictionary pages and a 60's french text book. The images are mostly from the Graphics Fairy but I used stamps and rub-ons for the smaller houses. Everything is sealed with gloss sealer so they really shine.

Ok, haven't had my scanner hooked up for a while but I finally have pics to post of the amazing inchies I've recently received. First, from Sakaki, woodland inchies - a double bonus! 

And after the 1st batch went MIA in transit, baking inchies from seeuudee. Plus, they make a recipe! How stinkin' cute is that?!

Thanks so much, ladies, I adore all of them!

I received from feliciaslaydcrg yesterday. A cute little house pouch with a stash of buttons living inside. I like the wee bead door knob. Thanks!

Received a very cute monster ATC from kwality570. The monster's name is "Christopher," which just happens to be my husband's name! Very cute ... thanks!
