Halloween Is On My Workdesk This Wednesday


This Wednesday I am sharing some first photos of my Halloween house for "What's On Your Workdesk?". I have been going back and forth between this project and my new doll and I am very behind on this one as it requires so much fussy cutting to decorate it. My son Jim painted the house the first time and then I did the touch ups but when I had to cut out additional floor sections to get the green paper behind the windows, it damaged the house at the base and I had to do repairs and paint again. Now I have the fences all painted so hopefully I can trade in the black paint for the scissors!

I finished my pop-up Witch doll today so I will be posting photos this week. It was another sunny day today in this part of WI but the colder weather is not making me happy. The older I get, the harder it is to get through the winters with the snow and cleaning/moving the car, etc. But I live in WI - so unless I move to a warmer climate within the next few weeks I best deal with it.

So hop over to the 'Stamping Spot' to see what everyone is doing today! Julia has a great new look to her blog - check it out at Wishing you a good one!

Your Halloween house is looking amazing. I've had those days when you create something, have to touch it up, move on and low and behold you have to touch up again. But in the end patience wins and you end up with an amazing project. Can't wait to see the finished project.

I am always sooooo impressed with your work. Your work area is always so tidy. Mine looks like a tornado went through and then returned for a second go at my space. I'm looking forward to seeing your project completed. Your pop up witch will be shown soon I hope. BTW... I think Martha's necklace is the perfect touch...I like the first one best. I'm going to email you a soon.
