Feeling Like an Elf

Sorry for the hiatus in posting. I’ve been quite busy with Christmas crafting and doing a couple swaps on Craftster.

I wanted to share a little bit of what I’ve been up to.

We wanted to do as much handmade stuff as possible for Christmas, so this weekend I got really crafty and cranked out this beauty:

A fairy cottage for Ms. Ophelia! She hinted that she would like to have a dollhouse while she watched me make my little spooky house. She loves moving all the furniture and things around and just staring at it. So, I was more than happy to make her a house of her very own.

Here’s a view from the side:

Cottage inside

On the first story we have the living room and the kitchen, and up top are the bedroom and nursery. When I got the other house I also got a furniture kit and she seemed especially intrigued with the little baby furniture. So, I’m making her a mommy, daddy and baby fairy to live inside.

Isn’t she lovely? I just love the whimsical effect of the mossy roof. The “wallpaper” is scrapbook paper on the first story and mulberry paper on the second.

Can’t you imagine a little fairy family here? Now I’ve just got to furnish this wee house. And knit a couple things. And make a few ornaments. It’s going to be a busy week!
