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 Halloween House 2015 Continues to Evolve
It always takes many days to finish one of my altered art house projects, but it still is amazing when I spend 6 - 8 hours a day, multiple days, and find still more to be done! Today's photos are of the trim on the roof. First I added the white patterned paper strips to the roof . . .
then added the black polka dot strips to the chimney.
I wanted a decoration of some kind hanging down from the eaves of the roof and so I took a strip of the green patterned paper that contained a solid design, folded it in half lengthwise and then fussy cut the edges of one side of the strip.
Added to the house roof they were very pretty - so continued all around.
Then I added two of the larger flowers, that I fussy cut from the printed paper I had used to cover the outside walls of the house, to the centers of the dormers.
Good thing I love fussy cutting! :<)
I didn't like that the underside of the green patterned paper used for the overhang showed from underneath and it was a very bold, bright pattern. So back to more measuring for more strips, this time in the white patterned paper that I had used for the trim on the top of the roof.
Then I used a black marker to color all of the undersides of the fussy cut edges of the overhang. Whew! I'm a perfectionist yes, but I love my projects when they're done! :<)
Now it looks much better! Think I am almost finished? Think again! More photos tomorrow!
