|Christmas House by Kimi|
I continue to work on my Glitter House town. I was gifted with a cute clear plastic "candy" box, and now I can see my vision a little more clearly. This week I made a little house with a checker-board roof - sorry for the blurry pix once again. Santa really needs to get me a new camera. It should be noted that this year, I have been nice...enough.

Granted, this particular project just may end up giving someone diabetes, but it is a risk I am willing to take. I haven't finished the landscaping just yet, as I had to put this aside to make my swap for the upcoming club's annual Christmas Soiree.
For said swap, I decided to try my own suggestion from last week - to make a smaller Glitter House by reducing an existing pattern. I used Leslie Shepherd's about.com plans, and reduced the gif down until the houses were about an inch tall "or so" on my word program, and printed them up on cardstock. You probably wouldn't want to go any smaller than what I did, as I was going cross-eyed with my Optivisor (tm) glasses as it was, and every once in awhile I would be on my knees grumbling trying to locate the teeny tiny little chimney or what have you that went "poing!" out of the tweezers without the slightest provocation. I didn't care for the chimney pattern, but that was mostly because it was so small that once it was folded there was nothing left. I made my own chimney in the end, as I did with the bigger gingerbread to Glitter House conversions from last week.

I might go in and put a tiny wreath on the door, if I get festive later, we will see. Lesley Shepherd at about.com has several little structures, one could make a whole town. I might try that, when my eyes uncross. I am also feeling like a glitter Tardis might make an appearance as well, you never know.
With that, I will bid you adieu, and leave you to your own devices. Until next time, my little elves!
