Cabin in the woods

 Hi Guys

Ive been working on a few things for the store, if you remember I made the Evil Dead Cabin last year and it was in the toy room for an entire year. I got used to seeing it there.  I came in every weekend to see the Evil Dead cabin with furniture in the toy room, it became a fixture....a warm comforting little demonic cabin that I built with blood sweat and mod podge.  Then Rich built a horror room with creepy skeltons and horror posters and I bought a few playsets that needed to go into the toy room so I moved the cabin over to Rich's side....big mistake.   It stayed there for a few weeks until he needed room for some board games because Corona hit and people were staying home...into the horror room went the cabin...3 days later it was sold.  I almost cried but thats the nature of this business if you want something take it home kids that are in this business learn that quick.  so now Im making 4 houses to go into the room..take a peek below

please excuse the clutter on my desk Lillys leash in the photo, I didnt think to clean before I shot the photos I was just excited that I made them I didnt think I could do that and it surprised me. I was a little scared of the bates mansion but I made it look even more menacing than in the hitchcock movie by putting the windows closer together. I remember the scene with Vera Miles walking up to the house and looking at it knowing it had a secret. Hitchcock was a wonderful Director

so thats it..I will post more when I get further along

I hate that dang Groundhog

Hi guys

we have 6 more weeks of winter and Im bored out of my mind. I took Rich some lunch and got a space in front of the bank...that never happens here usually its busy but not today
I I made a few plants out of old envelopes just to see if I could do it

turns out I can do it, don't look too close this is just going to be used as display in the toy room I have a Barbie wedding to put together up there

and since we have a little guy I didn't want to use things that may hurt him if he put something in his mouth or grabbed it off the shelf so I used paper glue and dry erase markers *little kids make you paranoid, I saw a tide pods commercial on tv..after that I put all the soap up on a higher shelf*
when I remake the spider plant and the snake plant I'll do a better job but like I said this is just to fill up the Barbie wedding set.
just to give you an idea of the size I put in a supergirl doll that we have for sale, Ive had burn out so I took a while to finish up my superman phone booth
  but in my defense Ive been fighting the against the man.
anger doesn't work if you want to be creative so Im calming down..I'll get around to the phone booth and post that later

 if you do want to make plants it will take some time to do it right but if you just need some green stuff to fill up a space hit up youtube and do some blog searches cause if I can do it so can you

till next month

Hugs and Love

I won!!!!!

Hi Guys

I won Felmas give away for the holiday dress, Im so excited and very happy to be a winner
I got the email on my phone and accidently deleted it when I was outside with Lilly (she had to go potty) I showed it to Lilly and we danced around in the snow. I briefly thought about making snow angels but that's were Lilly goes potty so I nixed that idea.

here is the dress
thank you Felma, your dress looks beautiful and I am so happy to have it.

that's all for now

Love and Hugs

Eat Fresh or Im making food for thanksgiving

Hi Guys,
Ive been a bit lazy with my building but I did have time to finish making mini food, I bought this at a thrift store..its pretty plain and missing the food/patio set that went with Im making the food and I have some patio furniture from a coffee shop that I made 5 years ago that Im going to add to it. take a peek below (all of this was made out of tissue paper and chalk pastels)

this is something I made from polymer clay..nachos for a magnet that I was selling at work7 years ago I don't know if I should include it because some kids little brother or sister is probably going to take a bite out of it (poly clay wont kill ya but the last thing I need is some angry mom complaining about it)

I think I can do better on the nachos....(after a 5 year hiatus I'd better be)

soooo that's what Ive been up too,

See ya next time and happy thanksgiving

Hugs Marisa :)

I had some down time so I made this game of thrones chair (I actually made 3 one went to my Lead at work, I got laid off again so I gifted her one the other when to Big Mike at finders keepers now called the coocoo's nest Im a big deal in the creek *we say that BUT its really called Sugarcreekl* his Son put a monkey on it love em)  take a peek down below.

 this is how I made the swords while I was watching tv..Supernatural is ending this year and they've been showing all the episodes on TV since Ive been laid off I been catching up..Dean Winchester is such a bad boy....dont tell Rich

so this is what it looks like in the display case..I had to bent the card stock back and I didn't finish the back on two of them because no one was going to see the back, Rich complained and said I should so I did ...that's the one he took to Big Mike *can you see me roll my eyes thru the computer?*  I will see you next month

June is almost over

Hello Everyone,
I hope your having a wonderful summer, I know Im vacation just work work work...I still go on buying sprees for the toy room, I got some new things and we put lights on the outside of the  building so it looks cute at night, I didn't do it Rich did with his friends (I call them the sugarcreek boys) all they talk about are donuts, gas stuff and old car parts, you'd be take a look below

Like I said I've been busy, theres a lot more in the basement
Richard is going to open that up later for people to store items and maybe do a Saturday style swap meet/garage sale..I didn't show you the model car section because I have nothing at all to do with that I don't need more to do I just do toys...that star wars tie fighter in the last photo was a steal I got it because the door was broken you can see it right on the top it's missing some guy says oh it's broken...??? so he didn't buy it...a few min later this 10 year old came up and wanted it..I sold it to him ...the other guy came back and wanted to know if I would take less for it since it was broke..I laughed and said it was sold ..people so that's what Ive been crafts no houses just scouring the yard sales and thrift stores to fill up the toy room. oh well during the winter it slows down and I can rest then
Hope you enjoy your Summer

Happy Birthday to me

Hi guys,
I worked on this project last year and I didn't get if finished in time for Halloween
 its the cabin from Evil Dead I finished the trellis and the swinging chair, yes it is supposed to be off kilter because the evil dead like to slide around on it. the remake which I didn't like shows a few more details but I just focused on the main room and the outside.

I made all the furniture and lamps and bookshelf for the cabin I even added a few books, I didn't make the reel to reel or the desk or the book but I have them on my work bench (if you put stuff like that out people tend to walk off with it) I even made a deer head for the fireplace but I neglected to take a photo of it, youd think with Christmas being here there would be tons of reindeer figures that I could lop the head off of but I couldn't find any to kill for the cause so I made my own with a prescription cap, large bobby pin, paper towel, glue and some twigs from the trees outside.
I'll get you a photo later

 yes that is Batman, I found him at a yard sale and he fits the house perfectly, Rich stole him but I know hes downstairs in the man cave so when Im ready to get started on the Haddonfield house I'll go get him. he's supposed to be 6/4 220 so if hes that big and tall and fits in the door Id say I nailed the scale :)
and this is what the inside looked like beofe I painted it white, I thought it would look good grundgy but it didn't turn out well so I repained it and I left the ceiling in dire need of repair with a few roof leaks

so that's if for my birthday post, I'm working on cleaning my workroom, Ive seen Casey cleaning hers and Ive never done mine. I need to get rid of a lot of things that I kept because I thought I would us them. 3 years later I haven't touched anything so it's time to go or at least clean out the stuff I don't use

Im loving this computer now that I have the new screen on it and now I can take it anywhere in the house. I hate being on the desktop cause I had to run up and down the stairs anytime someone came over

so happy birthday to me and my houses of horror (you know I could go off on this cabin thing cause there are tons of movies about cabins, like Cabin in the woods, Tucker and Dale vs Evil, Dead Snow, Antichrist, Cabin Fever, Friday the 13, the Breed, Id better get busy Ive got a lot of work to do.)
