I'm very behind on posting! I just have not had the desire to blog lately. I've been concentrating on getting more exercise and eating right, and it seems like I let other things slide a bit when I have a mission. I have been working on the candy house in little spurts and I have a bit more to share. I decided to make a wicker bed for Amélie to sleep in. It's not completely finished, I have to add some more of the trim- but I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. I made a mattress using tips from Casey at http://caseymini.blogspot.com --Thank you Casey!! Here's a picture with the mattress showing:
That's all the work I've accomplished right now. I still need to finish trim in this room and paint that little cradle. I want to paint those cute little dutch shoes my sweet friend Dani sent to me so they will remind me of her even more. I'd really like them to have a dutch boy on one shoe and a dutch girl on the other-but I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to paint them that small :) The sweet little oak leaf rug in this room was sent to me from Glenda at http://peppercornminis.blogspot.com- I think it looks so perfect in here and I've been saving it for a special place. Thank you again Glenda- I really love it!
Now, for the other project keeping me busy. I joined the free class given by Tam at http://willowing.ning.com/ titled "Art, Heart and Healing". Tam is a fabulous teacher and I really enjoy the class- but I'm behind and still on week one- I just do not like how my first piece is turning out. I did not have the exact supplies and I thought I would just use what I have since it's hard to find the supplies here in my rural city. I'm not sure if I'm going to buy the correct color crayons, or if I'm just going to keep playing with what I have to see if I can end up with something I like. I did notice as I was working on this that Tam is far braver with just adding, adding, adding to her work than I am. I have a fear of everything getting worse, and perhaps that is what is holding me back. This is far from finished- there are more steps after the face and hair is added, but I'm so disappointed in what I have so far that I can't seem to get past it! Isn't that stupid??! Anyhow, I have more to post- hopefully I'll be back later this week and I'll get back to my blogging habit.
Back To Normal...
