I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

'Tis the season for all things spooky! It is nearly impossible to wait until October (or September even!) to begin crafting anything Hallowe'en, whether it be a seasonal wreath for the door or a weird, creepy crib for a dollhouse.


I used a few different items from Alpha Stamps to cobble together a 1:12 scale baby bed fit for Pubert Addams. The crib rails are actually gothic fencing and the headboard is a miniature reliquary. The claws on the crib legs are made from polymer clay and I swear they are nearly invisible. I had to make twenty or so of them because I knew I'd drop them on the floor while attaching them and once that happens, there's no way I'm going to be looking for them!

The mobile is a few rubber bats attached to some filigree and bent wire, which is glued to the headboard. I really do love those bats.

Now all I need is a dollhouse.  Cheesy

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

UNHOLY CATS! This is soooo cleverly made and so dang perfect! I just love how you've reimagined the fence and reliquary into crib parts!

Very cool!  I love the eyeball watching over the child--nannycam!

You don't need a whole dollhouse, just a single room or vignette (which can be a room with just one or two walls).
I can see the nursery; shelves full of creepy toys, some formula, a "changing" table...

Fantastic! Even the wallpaper background is perfection. Sooper ooky!

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.


Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
