Once again in the spirit of the holiday + I’m not doing any work on the dollhouse . I thought about posting a poem for Dad’s day + but that seems forced and awkward + like Mother’s Day I’d rather just speak on what I know. My dad is the gentle giant + he is a man of few words but when he speaks you … Continue reading “Happy Fathers Day”
This weekend I decided not to do any work, or build, or make anything in honor of Mothers Day. While my mothering is not over but has shifted since my daughter is 25, the role doesn’t change. + I think of where I would be in this world without my parents but especially my Mom. + My Mom has helped me more than she will ever … Continue reading “Happy Mothers Day”
As promised I knew that I would continue this project off-line with better materials. I purchased some small wood pieces (about 2.5″ by 3.5″) from Micheal’s. I had just about given up when I found these in the wood ornaments section. They were .29 cents each and they only had 25 so I purchased the whole little bin. + Because the pieces are thin I knew … Continue reading Project #9: Coffee Table Book *Update*
This week I decided to try my hand and making some coffee table books vs. purchasing them. I’m all for purchasing a good product — especially if the details are perfect. I thought that I would try my hand at making a simple coffee table book. This little project took a little longer than I thought only because of sizing and printing. For my books … Continue reading Project #9: Coffee Table Book
This week is not such a mystery. + I’ve actually decided to do a bit of cleaning, and donate or give away some much-needed items to make space for new ones. It’s been such a gloomy weekend, and with no natural light it makes it even harder to get a good photo, so I figured maybe it’s time for a quick break from the building and creating … and, in the interim do a bit of cleaning and purging. + So I’m clearing everything out of the tiny space, then wiping it all down. + I’m going to sit out the items from the doll space that are not working. After this space is done, I’m going through the bin of clothing and accessories that I’ve acquired over the years. + Several of the items don’t fit properly because all of my BJD’s vary in size slightly. + It’s even harder to get things for Mitsuki (MyDolling + HeeAh). Certain clothes and shoes are harder to fit her so I’m purging and or donating those items as well.
Happy Sunday Everyone! This week I decided on a window box. I thought about shelving glued to the foam core but I would really like to find some cheap wood, and the goal was not to spend any extra money this week on materials. I figured a window box should be simple to create with what I have, however I am weak so I did … Continue reading Project #8: Window Plant Box
My lighting for my dolly house is done, and I think this is the best project that I’ve done so far, and the easiest one yet. + I had so much fun hanging these little gems. + These would even work for a standing lamp or table lamp provided I can make or find the right vessel to set the LED light in. + White IKEA style … Continue reading Project #7: Lighting
