I have been playing

Hi All
It arrived Thursday, what arrived? my mobility scooter, so I had to play, took it out on the road, it was very easy to drive, I love it, just got to puck up courage to take it to town, I know that it will mean I have some of my freedom back, I am excited but there is part of me that is sad that to get around I have to use a scooter, no doubt when I have got used to being on it and going places I will feel better.
Was going to go into town today, but we have had rain and more rain, we are not having a summer, just rain, maybe tomorrow it will be dry enough for me to go out.

I played around with minis this morning, I just had to make a mini scooter, pleased with it, I used my usual amount of junk and wood, anyway have a look at what I ended up making

found bits in here, plus used wood

Its open

Hi All

Yes I opened my Esty shop yesterday, its under debbiesminicreations, I need to find out how I put a button and link on my blog, I have only put on one item so far, will be putting more today, it took a while to set it up, now I hlope I get sales, wish me luck.

Had a great day yesterday, I seemed to get on with my minis and got some finished,

I finished the desk, I added accessories to make it look more realistic, I think now I have finished my pink theme, now will do some minis in blue, I had an old settee that at some time I had sprayed black, it had lost its cushions and fabric covers, so I striped it back to wood, that was hard going, but finally I got it to a stage where I could repaint it, I gave it a base coat of white, then used 2 shades of blue, when dry I distressed it and made covers for it, and made a blanket as a throw, I have this lovely thin wool like material, that is great for blankets,  it looks quite good, but I will leave that to you.

I also made stands for my teacup candles, I still need to fill the cups and add wicks so they look like candles, I have now got some liquid filmo, so will be doing that today.
I did get a bit carried away and made some accessories for the dolls house.
I made 2 bird houses in shabby chic

I went to our local dolls house club Monday night, we learnt to play with filmo, I made some pastry and waffles, it was great fun,

Had a phone call yesterday, my scooter arrives tomorrow. I am hoping it does not rain as I want to play with it, it will be great to get some freedom and Independence back. wait till you see it.

I have also put on some pictures of my bedroom for you to see, my son finished painting it, it just needs my pictures back up and maybe a shelf, son is doing that today,
I got a bargain on eBay, 10 tiny chandelier's, they had been part of a big chandelier and the sellar had taken them apart, they will work very well in shabby chic, have one or 2 ideas for them, but need to think about it first.

anyway enough of the chat here's the pictures

I have put lots of personal papers in the drawers

pastry and waffles I made at bthe club, need to cook them

My edwardian dressing table, a bargain at 30.00

Exciting news

Hi All
I have some exciting news to tell you-------------------------- I am getting a mobility scooter, yes you read right, a scooter, for a long while now I have had to rely on others to take me places, even a trip to the local shop is hard for me, so for the sake of my sanity and to give me back some degree of independce I got myself a mobility scooter.
it will be here next week, I shall have to bling it up. Looking forward to it, I will show you a picture when it comes.

Back to minis, did not do a lot over the weekend, we was getting my bedroom ready for painting, my son painted it yesterday, it looks really nice, just need my pictures put up and its done, next room is the hall, it will be a while till we do that, have to get the paper, paint, its so hard when you look at designs, see in your mind what it will look like, you have to get it right first time, as its not like a mini house, where if you make a mistake you can take it off, hopefully going next weekend to get the bits I need, see I told you I babble on, back to minis,
Last night I went to our local dollshouse club, we had a great laugh, we learnt how to use filmo, how to colour it, give it texture, all sorts of things then we went on to do some for ourselves, I made some pastry which had some tarts cut out, tarts and waffles, when that are cooked I will post a picture on here, I have not done a lot with filmo, usually just make bits as i need them, but I did get a bit hooked and will be experimenting to see what I can do, I did come home with some liquid filmo, so I can put this into cups, so they look like they are filled with coffee/tea, helps to make a scene more realistic.

today I will be back in my workroom, creating.
