Mini Man!

I usually try to do some big project on the mansion around October to post on my blog.  But right now my project is raising money to pay for the cabinet I have been posting about!  So I don't have any pictures for you... hopefully it will be done soon and I will post a photo of the entire mansion!!!  Yay!!

Meanwhile here is one of my favorite minis.... who's keeping me busy! (we got this shirt in a bunch of hand-me-downs!  Isn't it perfect???)  Happy Halloween!-Ara

Cabinet Progress!!

Hi All!!

You may be wondering where on earth I have been....well I have been chasing a newly crawling baby boy!!  He is everywhere!

You also may be wondering.... are you ever going to post anything new about the mansion???!! Haha... well here we go....

I have not been working personally on the Addams Mansion BUT I have been doing odd jobs to pay for someone else to work on the mansion.  In my last post I showed you the plans I had drawn up for my custom cabinet!  It will hold the mansion on top AND within the cabinet itself so it had to be VERY customized.  And because it is very custom I had to have it built by someone who knows what he's doing.... and that costs money!!

Anyway... its going good and I am excited to share some update photos the builder (also a good friend) has sent me of the progress:

The open space in the above pic (the space that does not have doors) will house the basement of the mansion.  The doors will hide the boxes that the minis are stored in when the house is not decked out!  It will also have wheels so its easy to move around.

I am soooooo soooo soooo excited!!  This will help me move forward with so many things.  And my mansion will finally have a decent resting place!  thanks for taking a look, Ara
