Finally finished

Hi All
Yes its official I finally finished a project, ho good is that, I got my head down yesterday, ignored the dust and the housework and went into my work room and stayed there.
And I finished my kiddies room set. Yippee.

I was wondering why the sudden interest in kiddy stuff and then light bulb went off, its because I am becoming a Nannie in September. I am looking forward to seeing my little grandson, I have been buying bits for it and hiding them under my bed. I have this idea, I am going to do a hamper for them filled with baby bits, anyway I digress , better talk minis.

I made bed covers for the little bed I had made, the bed was very easy to make, I used balsa wood, I love balsa wood,  on the bed ends I put  little wooden buttons in the shape of  bunny and a owl, I was very lucky at my favorite shop, The Attic, sells every thing, I found the owl buttons, a pack of 6 for 60p so I brought 4 packets, how good was that.

I then made bed covers and pillows, placed a blanket over it, its done.

The blanket is made from a baby blanket, I found this in B&M's, for  £1.00, so I got 2 in white and pink, they are thin enough to use in mini.

My son belongs to  biker group, they are having a bike fest later this year and I have offered to make a prize for the best bike, what I have come up with is, I will use an old bike helmet and inside I will do a scene, this will be a couple of bikes hanging on the back wall and a bike in the front being worked on, I have already found some tiny bikes and have some charms that are like tools, quite exciting project, something I have not done before. I will also have a small table there to sell my work, I will be doing some (real Life) shabby chic items and a few minis. 

well better get on, my dad is over today and we are going to the Range, I love that shop and always find something I want.

have a look at my kiddy set.I also had to include pictures of my doggies, they know when I get my camera out and pose so I just had to take a picture.

Hi All

Looking in my shed, I came across some stuff I had brought with the plan of making them shabby chic, yes I know another project to do, I picked the one that appealed to me the most, that was a tatty key box, I sanded it down and then painted it, decoupaged it, made it shabby, varnished it and it was done, why is it not that easy with miniatures. I did go back to mini making later, but it was nice to do something different.
I repainted a little dolls house for the dolls house

I had my bloods done on Friday and I am so pleased, I have stayed within the range, so I am now on 4 weekly visits, hope this continues.

More minis today after I have posted some parcels, I sold some of my mini creations on ebay and I am always surprised that they sell and where they go, this time its New Zealand.

anyway have a look at my shabby chic key box

before I got my hands on this it was very grubby and paint was missing
