Great start! The house an adorable. How’d you make the feet? They look very lifelike.
The bone fence = super cool.


Thanks, all! @curiousfae, the feet are polymer clay with acrylic paint detail.

That house was EVIL, which is fitting given the subject matter :rofl:. Everything went sideways at almost every step of the assembly process. I’m just glad it held together in the end!

Book description:

Seven years ago the Atargatis set off on a voyage to the Mariana Trench to film a mockumentary bringing to life ancient sea creatures of legend. It was lost at sea with all hands. Some have called it a hoax; others have called it a tragedy.

Now a new crew has been assembled. But this time they’re not out to entertain. Some seek to validate their life’s work. Some seek the greatest hunt of all. Some seek the truth. But for the ambitious young scientist Victoria Stewart this is a voyage to uncover the fate of the sister she lost.

It’s technically horror, but more horror light and so beautifully written. I love it! I just sent @bunny1kenobi the prequel as a kindle book because you can’t get it in print.


I am REALLY looking forward to digging in to these stories! Thanks so much!


That Baba Yaga house is AMAZING!


I received today! Check out what @Myrthena sent me! So spoiled! Thank you so much for everything!
First up-this book that has been folded into wonderful shapes! It reminds me of the mountain that is near me, Mt. Hood.

Next up, is the outside of the book, another little journal, and book marks.

Lots of fun little treats! Chocolates, bookmarks, ornaments

The books! And even more treats! I’m so excited to read these.

Close up of the candle with my name on it.

Thank you again! Everything is so inventive and thoughtful.


Yeah…so I had two partners and I received from my other partner today, @Chr1stchan. Thank you so much! Everything is so wonderful and feels so cozy.

The books! I’m super excited to read these.

Look how beautiful it is wrapped! Treats and a wonderful bookmark

Tea and gorgeous ornaments.


I love the bookmark and those books look super intriguing!

A CURSE SO DARK AND LONELY is sooooooooo good!

How brilliant & beautiful!


It a lot of measurements up to the mm and then folding 600 pages. to get that result.
I 'll show in a post some others not all that difficult :slight_smile:
