Last night Paige and I went to the premiere/party for a project I worked on, and I'm going to plug it here because it's online and it's interactive and lots of fun -- and the more people who watch the greater the chance we'll get to shoot a second series of episodes!

It's called That Moment When and it's a hybrid web series/choose your own adventure story.  The pilot episode (which we shot in 2015!) and second episode went live yesterday; two more episodes will be released each of the next two Tuesdays, and the finale on December 5.  Script-wise it was an intricate puzzle to keep track of during shooting (which was my job) but our crew, cast, and production team were fantastic and we had a great time filming it; then the director, producers, computer geniuses, and editorial staff spent the last five months making all the elements come together and work smoothly (not only do you make choices for the heroine, there are also little games you play that move the story along).  Advisory: This is a grown-up choose your own adventure type story and there are f-bombs throughout, but no nudity, sex, or violence.  And it's a comedy.

So please check it out at https://helloeko.com/tmw -- and remember that every time you watch/play and make different choices, you'll be shaping the story and the outcome!

Here is Paige at the after party:

Gah! That is so cool. I will definitely have to check that out this weekend. Look at Paige all happy and hanging out at parties!

We just got home from an extended vacation and I had two lovely haunted chunky houses waiting for me.  Irid3sc3nt went with my ouija board theme, I love it!  The planchette is embossed.  Love the creepy eye.  The back is decorated with Halloween themed washi tape (and I am chartreuse with envy over your washi stash!)

And from cmarion3, a haunted barn.  Each and every board is individually glued into place.  I love the effect!  Best of all, the cobwebs glow in the dark! 

Even thought Halloween has past, these are going to be featured on my Thanksgiving buffet table next week.  Thank you so much ladies!

WOW!  I am afraid if I stored yarn like that, my cats would have too much fun!  Grin

I store most of my yarn in plastic bins in a small closet. I have one for each type of yarn, like sock yarn, DK, etc.  I sort by gauge and also fiber. I use baskets to put yarns in for projects for the next month or so...ongoing projects are kept in tote bags with the pattern, needles, etc.

I made these for a friend in an apartment...they are intended to store yarn in a closet using regular clothes hangers. They hold about six large skeins of yarn...

I'll admit it: I have a love for vintage packaging, and vintage Christmas ornament boxes hold a special place in my heart. You may not have access to a vintage ornament box, but you can make a pretty convincing fake. I used paper from the "A Very Merry Christmas" paper pad for the inside and outside of the box, fussy cutting elements from the paper to create logos and box design. In the photo below, the two boxes in back are vintage; the one in the front is a fake.

Here they are stacked up. I used a nice golden brown ink pad to dirty up the imposter a bit.

The diorama box I used is cardboard, so even though it's a one piece box, I left the bottom "as is", and only glued the decorated sides at the corners so it looks like a box with a lid. (Check out those staples; I love that little detail. More about those later.)

The interior of the box features a wee little elf admiring the decorated Christmas tree.

Here's how it was done: glue the paper on the top of the box, and cut out the opening with an x-acto knife. The paper in the pad I used was not big enough to cover the four sides of the box, so I used red stripey paper around the bottom edge of each side. Glue in your patterned background paper. Glue beads and a star onto a bottle brush tree, and make a cardboard ledge to raise up the floor of the display area so the elf and tree are easily visible. The tree I used was a little too tall, so I cut a hole in this new false floor to sit the wooden base of the tree into.

Use Snow-tex to create "snow" for the bottom. Once the snow is good and dry, glue the elf in place and set the tree down into its hole.

Glue the cardboard base to the back of the wall, and put a line of glue on its front cardboard flap to adhere it to the box front when the box is closed. My floor is slightly tilted toward the front, so you can see the elf a little better. *Plan ahead! If you want some tinsel around the opening, now's the time to glue that in. Trust me, it's not easy to add tinsel if your box is already sealed. My problem: it wasn't until my box was "finished" that I felt adding the tinsel was necessary.* Now would be a good time to put the wreath up, too. Once your interior is finished, tuck the flap of the box lid on the inside the of box, leaving the decorative paper outside, and glue the flap in place.

I was so happy how real my little box was looking, that I just had to add staples on the ends just like my two actual vintage boxes had. I used a sewing needle to punch holes in the box, and pushed the staples in with my fingers.

There are more photos and a complete supply list on my blog, should you care to make one of your own. Look how tiny and cute!

I have definitely cut down on the handmade Christmas gifts in the last couple of years. For a few years, I was making 85-90% of them and I was getting overwhelmed. I am actually almost done with all the mail-away gifts - which is all of them except The ManFlesh, our pup, and any hostess type gifts we might have for the season. I have handmade gifts in mind for The ManFlesh and the pup, but I will work on those after Thanksgiving when all the others will be shipped off, our houseguest season will be over for the year, and my studio will be tidied enough to cut patterns in!

I did make these for this year, though:

Mini clipboard photo displays:

They have their own post in Home Sweet Home

And this hand towel:

It also has it's own post in Holidays & Occasions

Lots of sewing after next week!

It is a scan of my 2 lopsided houses wall hanging, I am trying to think how to do the border? It is hand sewed on a thin muslin and stitched with both quilting threads and DMC floss, some beads on it, will de adding more..... The bird is done with silk floss so its shiny. Width is 22 cm and height is 62 cm. The sky pieces have some filling so is 3D those two strips. It is made using all sorts of quilt fabric scraps. I keep many loose threads in front so I can continue and they do not get tangled in back and add beads etc Not much quilting yet on it.
