Alice Decor, Haunted Mansion skulls and broom mischief!

Here are some more signs I've been making to decorate our venue come this December! I saw images on Pintrest of each of these and I decided to make cutouts of wood and painted using acrylic craft paint!

The club is already painted, but oddly enough I don't have a picture of it, but it reads.. Off with her head! I still have a lot planned and the months are flying off the calendar, so I need to kick it in high gear! 

My nights are often filled with sitting around the TV and working on various projects which has been awesome since my Fiancee is also working on her projects! We brew a pot of coffee and see how much we can get done! She has been doing awesome selling her bows on facebook and etsy, so I've been making some stuff to pad our wedding fund!

I had a night of awesome movies.. The original Star Wars trilogy to be precise and I finished some stuff I have been working on! I've made about five coffin jewelry boxes for her to sell and I've also made about thirteen wood skull cutouts a la Haunted Mansion in December! I was going to use these as centerpieces on garland and or wreathes as Disney does and I've gotten some good feedback, so I decided to make a batch! :)

Instagram is a neat little app where I usually upload pictures of my latest projects and it has also led to some interesting discoveries! Instead of tweeting you upload a picture to tell your story and one night last week there was a viral discovery of brooms standing up on their own due to the planets all being aligned, so here is a view of our kitchen and brooms!

I didn't believe in the planetary alignment scenario for a moment, so I started contemplating it up to other options and I figured Harry Potter may have touched the world more than we realize since all brooms now seem to be magical and will stand on their own, but after searching for fishing wire hooked to the ceilings or the brooms being hot glued to the floor and not finding anything.. I was about to chalk it up pure hocus pocus until I spotted the culprit!

I think Walt was on to something! Now if only I could get them to dance and clean on their own too!!


  1. Damn it, why can't *I* have magic brooms that clean for me? ;)

    Glad things are going well on the Wedding Front!

  2. Haha, I didn't think my brooms would work, but they both did! Just takes a bit of balance!

    Making stuff is going well, but time feels like it is slipping away!
