The werewolf is.
And it's so, like, original Scooby Doo, don't ya think? Stylin' 60/70's? Chest hair and all? Finally got this one done. Now it's time to cut out the faces and make a frame to hold 'er up.
And now that I've spent the time on the faces plus it's kind of the best part of the picture, I kinda don't want to cut them out. Dang it!
So I've been hard at work here on Halloween crapts. 'Cause we like Halloween a lot. Maybe you haven't noticed.
I've got a whole mantel montage going on in my head, and I knew I wanted old, spooky candles to be a part of it.
So we're currently working on these big chunky ones, dripping wax all down them.
And Jeff's all, "just leave them alone now and let them burn all night and hollow themselves out."
Hellooooo? You've been married to me a for a decade and you haven't picked up on my terror/paranoia/psychosis concerning fire?
"Pants on fire" jokes and "Roof is on Fire" song aside.?.
I relit them in the morning so I could keep an eye on them.
'Mmmm. These are the rolls I made last night.
What does this have to do with anything? Nothing. Sorry.
Anywho, I've jumped aboard the bloggyland train and have decided to do this totally awesome Inn sign for both me and the daddy-o.
Isn't it cool? Found my crows already at the dollar store.
So I took some strips of wood I have for another impending huge project (project! squeal!)
Cut them down to size, glued them together, and put the strips of wood on the back to strengthen this bad boy. See the pencil lines? I cut along those with the jigsaw. And dang-- you's who use the jigsaw a lot-- it always sounds so easy but I felt like I had manned a jackhammer for 2 hours when I was done.
spraypainted the back just to be lazy, and the front I gave a greywash of paint. 80% water, 20% paint.
Then it had a date with Mr. Sander to make it look more old. So, have you ever, like, sanded your hand?
Oh, well, me neither. But I'll bet it hurts. Anyway. . .
After some vinyl we are nearly there. . . Ta da.
Am I confusing you? I made my dad's first. Thought that would be less, oh, selfish.
And no, it's not going on the mantel. The frame to hold it up is the next step. I'm off to make my own now. Tee hee.
