  10. Hellloooooooo yall!, I have finally reached the last 2 of my boxes in the niche....as you know with the move we are consolidating our storage(6yrs) into the current stuffs and have had to purchase shelves and book cases and I am still lacking one...lol...I have NOOOO idea where all this stuff came from but it has been a total brainmare for me getting it back into some sort of organised chaos...my sister is here for 6 weeks and we have been doing projects and while we break we organise....Im almost there.... couple of sad things to report...my 1/144th scale ferris wheel and Garfield ar
  11. Hi yall, I have been reduced to the lurking status...love seeing all the new work and informative answers to the many questions! I myself had the gransnman move about mmmmm 90% of all my craft things to the downstairs room where the ever patient hubby took the carpet off for me and hung shelves to realise before me that...that room was not going to make me happy...sigh...I know sooooooo he and the grans have moved all my things back up to the loft of the rental and I am about 75% finished putting it back together...the main problem being that I have NOOOOOO idea where all the s
  12. hi all, I am making great progress in getting the niche back up and working...tonight he carried the rest of the large boxes down for me to unpack...then the odds and ends...I do have my sewing corner set up and have used it for my real life curtains in the new house...so progress while slow is on going...it will be nice so have it set up...all the work going on is inspirational and makes me itchy for my paint and glue!
  13. omgosh Lawanda I love that house...I also have one...I have built 2 and the next one I build will be for me....cant wait to see what you do to it! the hubby has finally installed all the shelves in the niche so the time to get serious about moving into the space is now...with all the boxes stacked in ther it is claustrophobic...but Im sure once I get it all organised and put together it will be great. looking forward to getting back to some of my projects!
  14. I am loving this build!! your vision coming to life...kudos!!!
  15. hi yall, just stopping n to say hey, Ive been busy with the best kind of mini...a new granbaby...my daughter had a baby girl...and she is adorbs... I got the room box kit done...all the little bits and ready to put it all together when I realise I have no way instructed to put the battery pack...I will attempt a duct tape pocket to hold it...the on and off switch and the opening for the batteries are not on same side so cant attach it to the side of box...but I have pretty duct tape so it should work...if I could squeeze in 30 mins of work I could finish it... finall

  18. Hi yall Ive had my gran this week on Spring break and they helped me unload what is to be my niche...there was a carfunkle in the move and most of my niche stuff ended upstairs...someone forgot that the last word was downstairs in the den/office....and they filled that room with all manor of boxes...most of which has been wrangled upstairs...and the son moved the Queens Buffet and an etagere out of there...so when hubby arrives tomorrow he and I can decide the placement of furniture that will be in the niche...and what furniture I will take from the selection of undecided...as we know
