[SIZE=1][COLOR=black]Been a while since I posted here, but now is as good a time as any to do it! I've been inspired by the upcoming Haunted Mansion anniversary and all the chatter about the merchandise event, and when you combine that with extra time on your hands (ok, [I]my hands[/I]), you get CRAFTS GALORE. I started off on some other projects, (currently I am obssessed with Flight of the Conchords) but now I am focused on Mansion stuff. I have all kinds of ideas... watch out, weekend! [/COLOR][/SIZE]

[COLOR=black][SIZE=1]I'm not quite sure what to do with these things yet. I might list them in my [/SIZE][URL="http://giddygirlie.etsy.com"][SIZE=1]etsy shop[/SIZE][/URL][SIZE=1] or trade them with other collectors for HM goodies. I just don't know! Any suggestions? Anything you'd be willing to trade for custom embroidery?[/SIZE][/COLOR]

[SIZE=1]I've finished 2 of the 3 hitchhiking ghosts, Phineas & Ezra. I am hand-embroidering these (click images to see larger) in hangable frames. The frame is 4" at the tallest point and the actual ghost image is about 2-2.5". I had to use super fine needles to get everything right, but I am really enjoying the process![/SIZE]

[COLOR=black][SIZE=1]I'm not the only one who has been inspired, either! My friend Kate makes these [/SIZE][URL="http://junebugmemories.etsy.com"][SIZE=1]GORGEOUS purses[/SIZE][/URL][SIZE=1] and she's been getting requests for customized Haunted Mansion purses and been also filling her shop with handmade keychains (don't miss the [URL="http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18661266"]Nightmare Before Christmas models[/URL], either!).
