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.

WOYW? - My Finished Halloween House for 2015!
Today for "What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday" I have photos to share of my finished Halloween House for 2015. It was very labor intensive but I am happy with the end result!
I had a few more details to complete after the photos of yesterday's post. I added the green print fussy cut edge along the base. I colored the back of the edge with a black marker to cover the bright printed paper on the backside of the green print. Then I added a strip of the black polka dot along the base at the bottom.
Still needing a little something, something - I decided to also add strips of the black polka dot to trim the inside of the front and side eaves, plus a few more fussy cut flowers from the printed paper used to cover the house, added to the side eaves of the house.
You can see here the white print paper that I used to cover the back side of the green print paper used for the overhang in addition to coloring the fussy cut edges with a black marker.
Almost done, but then I noticed that I still had to add a strip of the black polka dot paper around the top of the chimney - almost forgot that!
The house was finally completed and I had only to add the fence I had painted black to the outside of the base and add the fussy cut figure of the lady - who having discovered this small enchanted house, was looking in a window where she thought she had seen movement.
While at the same time, unknown to her, someone was looking down from an upstairs window and shining his lantern to see more clearly what was causing the movement he had seen.
The End Result
