I actually made this haunted house for My "Fall Intrigues basket swap" that I hosted. No it did not fit in the basket, but I sent it along with the basket. I had fun making it, even though I got a lovely hot glue gun burn on my arm.
I used the hot glue gun to make some lovely looking spider webs. They probably did not survive the mailing, but it was fun to get some of it in the picture. This pattern came from the October issue of Victoria magazine and can be downloaded by going to their website.
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
