My heart is bursting with joy. My daughter finished her semester exams and decided she wanted to do a Christmas scene. Of course her Mother has a stash of minis. I am so happy that there is a p

We have been re-doing our spare room to accommodate a craft space for me, so that my houses no longer have to keep moving on to and off of the dining room table when I want to work on them.  (T

I've been on a search for a friend for a 1:12 scale Thornhill kit. I realize RGT's quit making the kit, but typically you can still find them if you look -- though all of my normal spots of finding good deals have turned up zilch! So while that was a bit of a disappointment I at least was able to point her in the direction of a couple of good deals for furnishings and lights. Meanwhile, whilst I was doing all of that was b/c I was waiting on glue to dry. My day was spent gluing down individual veneer strips, which given I think will look gorgeous -- but boy oh boy does it take a good bit longer doing so in 1:12 scale than my last ones in 1:6! lol Ah well, has also been giving me time to really research colonial decor on the coast. I'm really wanting to make sure I have some touches in my Nantucket house of the Colonial era, while still bringing it into the modern day and age. I have my Braxton Payne fireplace I was wanting to put in the kitchen, but it's so big it overpowers the room. So instead I will be having fun cutting my slate tiles for the kitchen floor and figuring out if I want to make a fireplace with Paperclay... don't know yet but will give it time to percolate until I can figure it out.

Well, I have been trying to finish up the brick Colonial....for the last several weeks! LOL  But this morning I did get a start on a last-minute project: fixing the attic wall sconce that I broke off!  :doh:  It meant having to remove the wallpaper liner and re-doing the tapewire and soldering.  All went well and the new light is in and working! Yay!  Now hopefully tonite it will be dry enough for me to get a first coat of paint on.  Otherwise it's just a few little paint/stain touch ups and we're DONE!  :cucumber:

I've decided that after this house is off the workbench I am taking the rest of the year to work on some personal projects.  This week I've received a couple of treasures in the mail and can't wait to get them into my little wall display house!  :D  I will have to take some pics tonite.

What are we drinking Nutti? ;-) I think that sounds like a good plan to make sure we get creative time in our day. I oil paint and dollhouse too, sometimes hard to decide which one Im in the mood for, but as long as I'm doing something productive and creative that's what matters.

I decided to push back the  Victorian townhouse, just too much preliminary planning to do, things to order, before I even start construction. I decided to do another roombox after I remembered I had an empty one that I had glued together years ago and then put aside. On the other hand there's a townhouse shell we had bought to resell when we had our online store. I thought it might be fun to finish it off, but I couldn't find the 2nd flight of stairs. I looked EVERYWHERE for it, couldn't figure out what could have happened to it - till just a few minutes ago I remembered one place I hadn't looked. I figured no way could it be there - but it was. Now I don't know what to do, finish the shell or the roombox? I can only give my full attention to one artistic project at a time.

Yea!!! So glad to hear she was brought to tears Jackie! Anna, love your Hen & Chicks -- such a great idea, and love how realistic they look! Nutti, can't wait to see what you're up to as well.  I've not been doing a whole lot here, just been working up some plans for a 1:24 dollhouse and working on 1:12 floors. Other than that praying to get the cold that's settled in kicked, and get some energy back.

Just back home again after a weekend up in Stockholm attenting the mini show as a vendor. Shared a few pics of My Table snappas in a hurra just as the show was about to open....

My, you have been a busy little bee, haven't you?  I hope you sold out.

Yep, kind of busy bee :) , you know me, just can't stop after one when the hands want to try out more... didn't sell out but sold plenty and had a great adventure. A bit different Crowe campares to the show in Farum/Denmark, and this so made me miss that too... <sigh> Feels a bit  sort of like opening the Box of Pandora here. 

Hugs

Anna, you have a wonderful array of items--something for everyone. Just out of curiosity, which items enjoyed the most interest/sales?

Hubby and I pondering about the same thing earlier whilst driving back home (a five hour trek) and concluded that it was the pet items  that went the bes.

I was playing with clay a while back. (Octopus  etc), had no clue what I was going to use them for.  Well went to Michael's yesterday in Paducah.   Made pins out of them.  Pics on pinterest.  Funny part,  I don't wear pins.

Gifts?

Maybe you should start wearing pins.  Those are really nice.  I especially like the floral one.

Today, even though the BBQ shack/restaurant is packed, the tater wedges and coke slaw servings are done.  Grilled cheese and BELT are in the oven.  (Pinterest)

 

Holly, you are thinking like me on the gift part.

I'm kinda proud of them, since they are made from ugly grayish scrap clay.
