Dollhouse MInis

So today I was bored and decided this is the day that I start on my mini display for the April Show and Sale in Westside. I have been collecting items for years for a South West House and though I have not found the perfect house yet I am going to at least put the treasures out so I can enjoy them. This is an altered Adams Cottage that I bought at a Peddlar's market a couple of years ago. It is pretty small but will work for this display. I am using paint(actually a warm white not Yellow) and TP to give the outside an adobe look. The inside I will paint and for the floor I will make paper clay tiles. It will turn into a wine tasting room and hope to eventually make a patio and ........ I will post my progress as I go along this personal challenge. I have so many things I would like to do felting and making collages but for the next few weeks I am going to work on this. I am taking a course in Kelowna in Feb doing vintage embellishing and have an envelope swap to do too but I think that is Feb now too? Always projects to do!

Felted Ornaments

This year for Christmas I felted some animal ornaments for some of my family. My Niece got me the cookie cutters from Ikea this year and she got this set for her tree and others only the Bear. I wish that I had taken a better photo of them as this is very blurry but I will post it any ways . My next project will be a table runner for myself so hope to get a good photo of that. Very cool set of cookie cutters . Thanks for looking and Happy New year to everyone. I almost am at my First Year Anniversary of my blog. Hope to be more active in 2011.

Sick Day

Sheesh I have too much to do to be sick, just look at my desk (actually the dining room table) . But off to bed I go and hope tomorrow I will feel like turning this room into what it was meant for. If you look carefully you can see three pressies I opened and they deserve to be hung up and enjoyed. 1130 AM and I am going back to bed.
Poor Me ; )

collage and paper clay and Christmas

Wow two posts in two days!!!! I am doing a 12 days of Christmas exchange with the Byhand Artist groups on Yahoo and I was day two which was yesterday December 14 . I am in Group One and there are two more groups!!! What a great swap hosted by Mary-Beth. Linda C happily let me copy her pictures and so ta da here are photos of my gift. I used Paperclay and a mini cookie cutter to make the buttons and a very lovely napkin that I found this summer on a a Bird house shape (from Micheals) and on the buttons and used Quietfire stamps from the 12 days of Christmas stamp set that Suzanne has. I decoupaged the napkin on the house and the buttons with Matte Medium in several layers. Fun project and wonderful swap again this year.

I have been busy felting some gifts again this year. The one with the bear button (I made the button using Paper Clay and a bear cookie cutter) is a holder for a gift card so is 4 1/4 inch X 3 inches and the other holds a package of beading needles for a friend who is into beading. I am very happy with them. I hope the girls like them too. I also have several bears that I am working on for family gifts this Christmas and a very wonderful Moose. I will post when I get them done.
Also in the midst of a 12 days of Christmas swap that is fun. I of course forgot to get photos before mine went off but hope to get some soon and will post them.
Just a few more sleeps till Christmas and so many things yet to do.
