Yes, it is time to get ready for the holidays-get those decorations ready!

I am using the new stamp Star Decorations (HMCR122).

Monica, Amanda and Muzzy are getting into the swing of things-venturing out in to the snow to hang their festive decorations.

I colored the image with copics and added a little Stampendous crystal snow glitter on the ground. I then added snow with a Uni-ball Signo white pen. The sentiment is from Tim Holtz Scribbly Christmas.

House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge 278-Show Us Some Snow

                              


                   

#278


Our  challenge of 

***ANYTHING GOES***
 Please use any House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image

or

  " Show us some Snow"



YES THIS IS AN ANYTHING GOES PROJECT WITH A STORY...


I know our current challenge is all about snow but I made this for the last challenge and then I lost my little cut out meece. I finally 'gave up the ghost' and recolored the images yesterday  and finished the card -it was too cute to let it rest until next year. OF COURSE-by then I certainly would lose the whole thing! That's how I roll...







Can you just imagine a little dusting of snow on this haunted house?  LOL
I cut out the fun Haunted House with my Silhouette and added my little trick or treaters. The two mice on the left are from the Monster Mouse stamp-I only used the meece and not the rest of the stamp. Obviously Amanda Mouse is none to intimidated by Maxwell. LOL  I am sure Amanda is thinking "Oh brother!".



On the right you can see Mudpie sneaking off with the candy-hoping not to get caught!


STAMPENDOUS STAMPS USED:

CLING CANDY WITCH

I have had this stamp forever and never used it-well that is crazy!

I made this little trick-or-treater scene to add to this spooky popcorn box. I plan to fill it to the brim with Halloween candies and give it away to a special little friend. The box is fairly large so it will take a lot of goodies to fill it!

My New Workshop-A special surprise!











I made this box designed by My Scrap Chick for my Dad's birthday a while back and forgot to take a picture-so I stole it back to get one. He made sure I brought it back to him though. He loves all my little paper projects I make for him-he has them all lined up on display. :)

This paper house was fashioned after my new 'Sue Shed' that he built me this year. (story below) Of course it was filled with his favorite treats too-Werthers!  




The Workshop Story

This last year has been a tough year for my family. My Mother died in the fall 2017 and we were all feeling lost this last year. 

My Dad-Bless his heart! He is 88 and is just an amazing man. After my Mom passed he started this project without telling me. He built this little She Shed (10x14) in his big workshop at home and then  moved it down to my place with a crane and a big ole' forklift! The planning that this involved! I hear it was a tight squeeze to get it out of the shop doors. Good thing I have lots of brothers, nephews and friends that helped out as well!

My Dad is someone that always needs to keep busy, so the timing of this project was a blessing in that it kept him busy and occupied while he adjusted to life without his wife of 68 years. He has this BIG list of things he wants to make. He has even built a log cabin on his property-felling the trees and skinning them for the project. Of course he is the idea man and has lots of helpers in our family too, but he has the visions!

When I was gone on vacation this spring he brought down the Sue Shed and left it as a suprise. He and my brother Tom have been watching the garage sales and stocking it with all sorts of tools this summer. 

I am a winter wood worker so I am looking forward to crafting many Christmas projects in here. Typically Dad helps me with my projects, but as he gets older, it is getting harder for him to tolerate the long hours, cold, snow etc that  happens when we are working on our projects. He has me set up now!

In years past, my Mom and Dad would build a big fire in the woodstove in their huge workshop up on the hill and we would woodwork and visit away the day. One project day we were sawing and nailing away and by the time we looked out, we were buried under about 18 inches of snow! Those are some of my most treasured memories. My Dad has displayed most of the wood projects up on his shop wall that we have made over the years. 




Now to know my Dad better-he actually salvaged all this! The windows, the siding, the roofing, the lights! It took him months to build and then he finished the  inside once it was on site.


 Not put together yet, this was right after the move-It looks better now.



My Dad with the very first scroll saw art I made for him.


Thanks for sticking through all this!
