Sound the trumpets! Cordwood Cabin has finished renovating the "Cabin Crafts" line on Etsy, with all-new items ranging from miniature to magnifique!
Our new look is holiday-themed (complete with a new banner), featuring a series of affordable hand-made ornaments intermixed with our traditional OOAK pieces.
Such as the all-new "American Cracker Company" line -- our own take on the old-fashioned British tradition of the Christmas cracker ...
Sheets of printable, original graphics for Victorian-inspired Thaumatropes ...
In addition to these items, we'll continue to create OOAK series similar to our past Ebay ones, including an all-new line of Wonderland dolls and our mini-macabre Ghost Girls line.

... our latest series, inspired by the likes of "Haunted Hollows" and "Ghostly Gallows", only with a more child-like macabre twist. Below is the first of (hopefully) a dozen dolls:
Our own little Woman in White
Inspired by the traditional ghost haunting public roadways (with a bit of Wilkie Collins thrown in for good measure), this wee ghostie is clad in raggedy cheesecloth and bits of vintage lace.
Ghosts, of course, don't need legs. Just flowing skirts that taper a bit at the bottom.
Happy Early Halloween from Cordwood Cabin -- this wee lady will be hitting the shelves soon in our shop or on Ebay...
But there's more surprises to come yet.

... and had begun to look a little lonely. All right, maybe not in that particular photo --
And thus, the Tiger Baby: the kitten Ginger Pye. She'll be awake for her next photo, with any luck.
There will be more photos to come of Ginger Pye's adventures (she's quite the artist's companion, to begin with) and love attention. But not cameras, apparently.

Along with a few personal art projects, we've begun our New Year's Resolution -- to "make over" the Cabin Crafts shop with new themes, new ideas, and most importantly, new merchandise. So, over the break, we tried out a few new mystery ideas.
Here's one of them ...
Obviously this one doesn't run off helium. Just a little tinsel and Christmas cheer.
Now what are these strange little pictures for?
The answer to that question and much, much more will appear over the coming weeks, so stay tuned for the all-new Cabin Crafts!
P.S. Check out our Yard Sale week on Ebay -- starting on Tuesday, we'll be listing a variety of hodge-podge, flea market finds, old collectibles, and items "donated" by various friends and family for the sale, all at low starting prices. From craft books to hodgepodge dvd's and movies donated to the pile ...
