Why, Alice, Why?


Alice with the jacked up eye :D
The swirly one eventually had to be glued down and it's hardly noticeable but still. She's gonna live here.

Dangerous Hair


This is Appoline.
Monster Appoline feigned the sniffles so she could stay home alone. With everyone out of the house she could finally try to get into the locked door on the third floor.
It had always been off limits but until her 9th birthday she hadn't given it any thought.

I didn't really grow up :D And...

Would someone stop me from reading my horoscope!!!?? It's a really bad habit lately. I don't even believe it!

I made an Alice in Wonderland doll, but I think by mentioning it before I actually finished it jinxed it. One of the eyes is not cooperating. She will have to live here with me because of it. I'll show you later.

Black Houses Via Door Sixteen Blog




Why didn't I envision this? I want a black house.

Voodoos and Monster


These be Voodoo Pearl, Monster Evelyn and Voodoo Amadeo.
Monster Evelyn liked to make things. She was currently constructing a marionette troll named Albrecht whose head was made from an oak root.


I should try that, too.

Otto the Strongman



Otto made many a lady swoon with his feats of strength and daring.
I finally got around to making a guy like Otto. I have had this idea for a while but who can say when the muse will really bite you in the butt :D
The other night I was watching Moulin Rouge again and I saw a scene that made me run for my pencil and paper. Also everytime I see that movie I want an old typewriter, working or not. Do you know I used to have 3!!! I got them for a steal, but let them go because we moved. What a dumb bunny.

WIP


Here is my strong man with no arms :D His name is Otto and he will finished tomorrow.

Voodoo Pierre



Voodoo Pierre is made from a vintage dress including this gauzy lining which made me buy this dress in the first place. He is a little voodoo, a little shrunken head and a little mummy... I love his primitive look. I love primitive art period. Anyway here are his reject shots :D

I wish...


...I could find the painting pic that inspired this doll. I was searching the web today and came upon a painting of a topless Victorian lady in white bloomers and black stockings. It was the contrast of white and black that made me want to make this doll. Oh well. I made her tonight. I was just gonna see Tv but was all fidgety so I went to sew. I am glad I did :D I love her Victorian look. I didn't mean for her to come out so lanky but she did and good thing because her legs look spidery.

I gots me a new man!



This is my my new pirate guy from HeatherLouise!!!!!!! Oh he is divine!!! He is amazing and I love him!! Please go check out her stuff, she makes insane characters! My guy even has a real snail shell! Sigh. I may pass out.

Tomorrows Monster Girl


Here I am again. I have this time today because the hub is home and I take advantage of it :D
I've made this monster girl for tomorrows etsy post. I didn't put eyelashes on this one because I want her to be a kid. A little monster girl who'd rather be a pirate than a princess. I don't know about you guys but I never wanted to be the princess, I always wanted to be the witch :D I'm still the same, haha.

Voodoo Villette and Voodoo Monsty Annabel


Yesterday's post really should have been titled NERVOUS BREAKDOWN because the kids kicked my ath bigtime and I was so drained by the time they fell asleep. Course I kept it all hush hush because I didn't wanna scare anyone :D
So when they were knocked out I made these two voodoos. Making them is like knitting for me (which I don't do) It's just relaxing.
Today's weather is beautiful. We went out and I took lots of pics and I will try to post them later or soon.

Doodles


I drew these a while ago but I've been thinking about making a plush of the top moth lady. But I'm already working on other stuff. Soon though.
I can't believe summer is almost here! I need a better plan than last year, lol. I need to find more cool places since our house has no central air. Man, that is rough. A lot f people don't have it but I get really cranky easy :D The kids got into the habit of going to bed so late thatI never had anytime to myself, none of that this summer, uh uh. I guess I am thinking about summer because we had a really warm day here. A nice day.
I thought I was getting a Netflix today but it didn't come. I guess I'll sew tonight.
Blah blah.

Cup of Coffee # 10



I guess going to bed late caught up with me. I broke my in threes pattern :D I just couldn't stay up. I'm here posting and I gotta think of some stories real quick before I head over to Etsy. All I can do is nurse my cup of coffee and look out at the sunshiney day.
Yesterday the girls made bunches of flowers from the yard and sold them outside. Oh it was soooo cute. Their little sign said Pay What You Can and hearing their little conversations was priceless :D I'll post some pics later.
