Welcome to my blog

If you enjoy finding a lot of different outlets for your creativity, then we may just be kindred spirits.
This blog is an outlet for my interest in miniatures, crochet, plastic canvas, and many other various arts and crafts.

I also love walking, taking digital photos, and most recently, have rediscovered an old love...bike riding! I purchased an amazing new bike, a comfy Townie by Electra this summer, and have been having a grand time exploring the area as though for the first time. It's like being a kid again!

If you enjoy any of these things too, pour a cup of coffee and tea, sit down, and join me.

Take care!

Plastic Canvas Haunted Dollhouse and Furniture, miniatures

I was searching through this blog for photos of  the furniture I made for my Haunted dollhouse, and realized I didn't blog about it.  I figured I'd do it now, as I'm thinking about putting my pc dollhouses up on  my Etsy shop.  I hate to do it, as I love my dollhouses; they make me smile whenever I look at them.  I'm moving soon though, and can't bring everything with me.  I have to downsize in a major way, and the houses are pretty big, even though they're for mini families, lol.

Anyway, here's the outer dollhouse, which I have blogged about before:

Here are some photos of the interior with furniture:

I had fun making this, even though it took me a long time to get to the furniture.  It's a cute, whimsical pattern, and if anyone wants to try it, it can be found on ebay or  Etsy at times, even though it's long out of print.  I don't know how long these links will remain active as the pattern is considered rare.

This dollhouse was made with stiff plastic canvas, and it's very sturdy.  I thought the hallowe'en details on the wallpaper were fun, but the pattern called for eyes on all of the pumpkins and I thought that looked too busy, so I left them out. I love the cat pattern on the walls of the attic.  

The little drawers in the kitchen open, and I keep meaning to make some suitable items to go inside but haven't gotten to it yet.  I have some tiny little bottles that would be perfect, and some printies for hallowe'en treats would be cool.  

The pattern was easy to follow, and I would highly recommend trying this Haunted Dollhouse if you enjoy stitching plastic canvas.

I have no idea what price I would ask for this, as I've never seen one up for sale for comparison.  
What do you think I should ask for this?

Thanks for visiting, and have a great day!
