Windows! - The Bazaar - W.I.P #4 + CANDY PREVIEW!

AHHHHH. Windows. Ugh. I spent most of the day putting these things together. I wanted to make sure they were really neat and clean and it took so long! Here are some shots I took along the way.

After all that work, I didn't even finish them all! I still have two left PLUS the inner door frame. Oh well. I got most of them done! When I glued them together, I actually let them dry in the window. They aren't glued in yet, I just wanted them to dry in the right shape.

I wish I would have gotten a better image! This gave me an idea of how it will look framed. I am still unsure of what I am going to do with the windows... you can be sure it won't be like what the instructions say! Hahahaha! I also got the stairs together. No big deal there. Each stair case was in two pieces and all I had to do was glue them together.

This previous image is of the gingerbread trim that came with the kit. I don't really like it, so I am planning on using the wood for something else. Maybe some furniture? I also have the wood from the shutters, too. That should give me a fun project some day soon :D


Here is a little prototype of my up and coming candies! I have been trying for WEEKS to make these little packages and I have finally figured it out. Now all I have to do is clean up the process a little bit and make MORE! LOTS MORE!

You can click on any image to view it larger if you would like. Let me know what you think about the candies! In the image above are some prototype candy corn and also some of my jelly beans. I think I might need to scale down on the jelly beans now... Hmmm...

Have a great day!
