Here are some pictures of the skeleton scene I made for my brother for Halloween. I adapted the project Consummate Bibliophile from Joann Swanson's blog to work with the items I had on hand. It was a lot of fun and I am thinking of making one for myself later. The candle is made from real wax and the map was drawn and edges burnt by me. The pictures aren't the best, I took them with my phone, but I do have some nice ones on my mom's camera. I will replace these when I get a chance.

Ok...I've been neglectfull of my blog but I have not been idle. Here are some pictures of the Micheals Puzzle House that I talked about working on. It's still not done, I ran out of shingles and need to order more. Then there is the back corners to cover, floor edges to finish and the base bricked. The brick paper is definitly coming off and I plan to use some air dry clay or egg cartons to stone or brick, haven't decided. Deciding factor will be which is the easist. LOL I have a kitchen and a bathroom kit to put together for this house. It was a lot of fun and it really makes me confident to attempt a full scrap build with blue prints and all. I've been seeing a lot of stick built dollhouses and many built with foamcore that look just like wood. When done correctly it looks like the foamcore holds up over time just as well. I may get my Louisa May Alcott house after all. I have some smaller projects planned...easy quick but detailed enough to keep me happy. At least that way I will have some projects completed and available to display. I made a Halloween scene on a picture frame for my brother following Joann Swanson's blog. I will find the pictures and post them here. Her blog is amazing and her instructions so easy to follow. Her SugarPlum scene is on my list...Geez that list is getting long. So many ideas and so little time!
