This quote says it all for me:
"I do not understand how anyone can live without one small place of enchantment to turn to."
My small place is my studio area in the corner of my living room. My Whimcees are all the dolls, bears and other creatures that I sew from cloth or sculpt from clay, the cards and papercraft projects that I create.
It is with this blog I hope to share my world created in my small space.

My Graphic 45 Happy Haunting House
Well, here it is! My haunted house using the wonderful Graphic 45 collection called "Happy Haunting" - aren't they beautiful papers? The house took me 2 weeks of 6-12 hour days and it is ALL fussy cut and pasted on! Each little piece is hand cut and then all the edges are colored in black marker so so that it all blends in. Many of the small figures are layered so as to give them a 3-D layered look. Can you spot the little girl looking out of the window? The 2-sided moon is attached with wire so he bobbles about - isn't he great? I love this collection and owned it for a long time before I cut into the papers. I apologize for the dark photos of the house itself but if you click on the photos you can get a larger image. I also took some close ups so that you can see more detail. Enjoy!
I also made a journal with these papers and will post the photos later this weekend. Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog today! Wishing you a Happy Halloween!
