Today, October 1st, I'm finally setting up my work station to
delve into the world of miniatures.
My interest has been growing for a few years, and finally
I gave in and admitted to myself that I'd really like
to try building miniature houses.
Why I take so long to have some fun, I'll never know,
but ever since I gave in, the flood gates have opened
and ideas are rushing in.
In the spirit of Halloween,
I'm sharing a few inspiring miniature haunted houses
from my Pinterest Board, Dwellings.
To dip my toe in the pond, I ordered two modest kits
that I'll show in a future post.
So far, I've read the instructions and the helpful tips packet
more than a few times. Oh, I've also stared at the numerous
pieces and parts thinking, "How am I going to keep these straight?"
Imagining an upside down house or some other awkward
and really wrong final result, I just keep reminding myself to
follow the instructions and all will be well.
So, all that's left is to set up the work table
and begin learning by doing. And today is that day!
Aren't all of these haunted houses great?!
Just to be clear, I didn't build
any of these in today's post. You can find them all on my
Pinterest board with links back to the makers.
October is a fun month, between the fall foliage,
rapidly changing weather, pumpkins in the field
and little ghosts, ballerinas and firefighters going door to door...
it's the perfect time to start sanding, painting and creating
small haunted, and not so haunted, houses.
I will post updates on my miniature endeavors.
If you have tips and tricks to share,
please leave me a comment. I'm wide open to guidance.
In the meantime, since it is October,
I'd love to hear what your little trick-or-treaters
are planning to dress up as!
