So, starting with the house: Obviously, we have been working on the back yard. I have put some before and afters just below. Sorry, for the before shots, all I had was pictures from the White Trash Party last year.

Here are some pics of the fairy and pirate gardens.
|The teacup waterfall|
|There are smurfs in the garden|
|look for fairy doors.|
|Papa made the covered bridge. Fairies come and go.|
|coming down the river.|
|The pirate cove. Yes, a giant squid has the raft. Papa built the wooden boat.|
|shipwreck and pirates and buried treasure on the beach. |
Look close, you can see the octopus in the water.
|through the foliage, you can see the lighthouse.|
|I painted my front door black.|
|This is my new litmus test, to see if we can be friends. |
If you know what this means, and why it should be on my door, you are welcome in my home.
If you don't, then you must be cool in other ways. So, you are still welcome. :)
I have a plant stand, that I want to fill with other various glass containers, with other spells, potions, etc painted on them. That might be the work of the winter. :)
These next pictures don't do justice to the front of the house either, but they are all I have.
|In this one, I had already cut off the wild clematis. But you can see the unruly garden and the rusty twisty plant things from the previous pictures. Maybe you can tell that the wicker furniture needs painting too.|
|Note the gardens, the trim around the door and the windows. The bunny by the door is pretty blah too.|
|painted the garage door black. Painted the space above the garage, with the black diamonds and new numbers. The ferns and the milk cans (formerly green, now black) are a change too.|
|The work crew.|
I have done some crafts for other people.
|Started making and selling crayon wreaths to raise money to send Sebastian to school.|
These are for a little girls room, back to school and fall theme.
|For a baby boy.|
|I am starting to get requests for specially themed wreaths. This was my first Halloween. |
I have 3 more requests for Halloween now, 2 for Christmas and several others.
That's awesome. :)
|Plaques for Geoff and Joel, to hang over their desks at the store. I used the font that is going to be their signature.|
Purple and green are the colours of the store (super villain colours.)
So, now you know, if I am not blogging, I am still doin' sumpin. :)
