I feel a bit like the white rabbit. I'm late, I'm late! I have a little list of things to blog about but (thankfully) work has been busy and blogging keeps getting pushed aside. Lets do some catch up today :) I've been working on Amélie's Candy House off and on. I found a tile pattern on the internet perfect for the bathroom so I have been making tiles and gluing them into the bathroom. I still need to grout, but I like the way it looks so far. I have the one piece of wallpaper just setting up against the wall to see if I like it- what do you think? I think it helps the white and blue fixtures blend in better? I think I need to sand and whitewash the toilet seat- I think the brown throws everything off.
Amélie also had a great surprise! She has a new friend- made by the same doll creator that gave Amélie life! Please welcome Susan- made by the fabulously talented Patricia at http://papillonbleuuk.blogspot.com I commented on a giveaway Patricia was doing on her facebook page and I was the lucky winner! I think Patricia's dolls are the sweetest and I'm so grateful to adopt a second girl :) Thank you Patricia!!! Look at the cute little chalkboard Susan brought with her and the sweets in the cupboard! ( I found that cupboard at the Salvation Army for $1.50! What a great find- of course I'm going to bash it a bit eventually ) Susan, Amélie and Biscuit the dog have been playing all week- don't you think they should help me out and grout that bathroom floor??
I also finally finished the first week of the "Art, Heart and Healing" course I am taking from Tam at http://willowing.ning.com . I really struggled with this first lesson- it's not my normal way of working and for some reason this did not come easy to me- but I'm so glad that I kept at it- I'm proud of myself for finishing week one and now I can move on to week two. This is a fabulous class- Tam has been very generous in offering it free of charge- huge thanks to her. If you are interested in taking this class there is a link in my sidebar there that will take you to the site. What do you think of my finished piece? I think I like it better now- even though I would usually say it's too washed out for me. Isn't that funny? The thing about it that I resisted I ended up liking in the end?
Before I leave you to go work on some more projects I'm including this picture of Miko the dog and Poopie the cat taking a nap together- they are trying to edge me off the couch I think! Hope you have a great day!! Back to work I go :)
