As promised I have been very busy creating and making items for my latest project
Egyptian shop,
I made the pots from wooden beads which I painted gold and added tops, others were made from beads and findings, I had a book which showed some pictures so I cut them out, laminated them and later I will frame them, I had a wire settee which I sprayed black and high lighted in gold. my favorite piece is the gold casket, i will be having this spilling over with gold and silver jewels, The furniture has also been sprayed gold, My hardest part was deciding how to do the wall, I finally made some wallpaper from pictures I had in my book, I still have more to do, as I want the shop filled with lots of goodies,
there are a lot of pictures for you to see, including all the items I have brought.

I am still in the process of making my items, still got to make a counter  and lots more pots, I made a great discovery I had some gold paint in a little dish which I had just left, when I went back the next day it had become a gold powder so I filled 2 jars with it the effect was great and it really looked like gold in the pots, funny how somethings just happen,
I hope you are enjoying my blog, I would love to hear your comments on the miniatures that I create, I am really excited about this project and I am having a lot of fun with it.
I have also been starting to do my web site, I hope to be able to sell some of my work from here, buts it taking me a bit of time to set it up I will get there soon I hope
well my friends until the next time bye for now

Its started, yesterday I sat and painted lots of wooden objects that I have made to look like jars, bottles, urns the list goes on, this is all for my Egyptian shop that is my next project.
I sorted out the items I have been buying over the year and what a lot I have got, this is going to be a big project, will be putting on photos later today to show you the shop and objects. Have got to sort out a heater for my work room, its very cold in there even my dog refuses to sit in there.
I am also looking at having a web site and linking it from my blog, if anyone has any ideas how I do this would be grateful, it took me ages to work out doing a blog so all help gratefully received.
well time to get on must do my house work, shopping, pay bills, walk the dog, then get into my little room and do what I love doing, making minis,
by the way saw a great idea on web for making books, you take the spine of a magazine cut it down length ways the width you want your book and then cut it into book sizes cover and it ends up looking like books filled with pages,
Have not tried it yet when I do will put it on here for you to see, its such a great idea and so simple, some people are able to think of some great things and I admire them for that,
