Wow. "bloody" brilliant! I love the packaging.........I would have loved to get this and put it together. Your textures and painting are fab, girl! Grin

Why, thank you!  I used professional decorative painting textures (from my day job) and it was really fun to make something totally different with them.

Wow, I can't wait to see!! I sent today, too, but it may take a little bit longer to get to Finland. I made something a little different than what we've seen so far, so I really hope my partner likes it! I was happy with the result but this gallery is so awesome, I am getting a bit of a complex!

Mine's quite a bit different, too.  But I followed the rules and I think I stuck with my partner's tastes, so...  SWAP ANXIETY!

Oooh, ooh, me next! Make me one, please! haha. This is so awesome!

Ah, thanks!  I'm at the point where I can't see another one of these for awhile.  It got real fussy.

That is so super cool! Sheesh, you thought of everything. Awesome!

Thanks!  The other houses in the gallery are even MORE detailed.  Hoo boy.

I made this wee scary house for the Tiny Haunted House Swap and I couldn't wait for my partner to post pics in the gallery (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=360605.0), so I'm posting my house here.  Besides, it just doesn't feel like a project is complete until I've posted it on craftster.   Grin

Shall we begin the tour?  Yes, let's. 


Are those ghosts flying around the roof?  Yes, indeed.


Close up of the stone walls and slate roof.


Something baaaad must have happened here.  That's blood running down the gold-leafed walls.


The ceiling escaped the mayhem and simply glows.


Luckily, the lighting helps the gold glow through the dried blood.

For the first round of the Tiny House Swap I "engineered" a flat pack house and I wanted to flat-pack again and almost got it.  The ghosts and the "candle" kept me from a truly flat package, but I had a good deal of fun packing this up. The packaging ended up being a craft project of it's own.


I used embroidery floss to attach it to cardboard that I labeled.



I used TP and masking paper tubes to hold a second piece of cardboard off the house.


The first bit she'll see when she opens it (excpet a small wad of bubble wrap).


I hope she likes it!

So I shipped yesterday and it seems that my partner was at her own post office at the same time I was!  So we're both expecting Priority Mail packages on Saturday.  BUT she's out of town for the weekend, so I'm posting an evil teaser photo.  Because in October, I'm evil.  Maybe some other times, too.

I wasn't sure I could do it and I barely did, but I reinvented my patented Flat Pack Tiny House from the first round.  Take that!

My tiny house of horrors has been shipped and is estimated to arrive half way across the country on Saturday!  Woo!  PMing the DC# now.

Aisy: you should like an awesome woman who has an awesome future ahead of her right around the corner.

The blood finally dried and that tiny house has been boxed up and is sitting in my car to go to the PO tomorrow morning!  Woo!

Wow!  That's neato!  Man, if only there was glittle siding for real!

I hope my blood is dry this morning so I can take photos and pack that tiny, scary thing up to ship tomorrow!  Sheesh!

I made it bleed on Sunday morning and it's STILL not dry.  Will attach with hair dryer later today.

IT's like you had a photo of my actual toilet to base your house on!  Wink

I'm not sure if this is how you meant it, but, geez, guys are so messy in the bathroom!  My husband tried to tell me that girls are just as messy but I was like, "Um... I SIT to pee, there isn't the whole splashy fountain-thing going on."

Well, The ManFlesh is pretty tidy with his toilet habits, but I have a similar giant-handed green monster living in there.
