I've been busy!

Let's see.....

I decorated the tree a little more. Made some stars from polymer clay, then painted them gold....also added gold bells......and some confetti~ red gingerbread men and some gold one from Valentines Day that say 'Love'. I just need to add bows...but I can't make little bows. I have tried, and they're not pretty.....so I may have to get Cora to try it, or beg Mom to make some...That's after I get her to make a quilted tree skirt....among the many other things I have lined up for her to do. We have lots of little sewing projects for her:)

I repainted these business card holders Mom gave us! They look a lot better in person, and really add a lot of character to the room.

And I got the trim done in the dining room!!! I never did find that blue tape, had to go buy more....then I lost my tool used to cut angles~ and had to eye-ball everything.......And.......
I LOVE IT!!!

Now if I could get the furniture on the left to look like the side table on the right.....Oh, and please excuse the lady in the background.....had to use her for her weight:)

So...here's what the living room now looks like.....

...and a picture of the whole thing.....See how much better the dining room looks now that it has all that trim up???


I've also been working on some printies....Made a few mini Christmas cards......

...and then today I made some minis for Cora's cabinet.........
This little guy is My Favorite!! He's just adorable!
...and this little guy was made with white clay verses pearl clay like the others. He's so much brighter!! And cuter!
I'm still in the Christmas mood here....so who knows what else I'll make??
Until Next Time........

Your little room looks lovely! You've done a lot of work! I love your little Santa! So cute cute cute!
I can't make mini bows either. I've tried several ways but they just don't turn out right. If you figure it out, please let me know!

Love it! Cute cute cute snowmen. how fun! Is anyone playing with the house besides you? haaa!

The tree looks great too. The whole thing makes me want to finish my other house. Guess I should get back to the half scale house. I've been playing with a shadowbox house which turned out nice. Pix to come - if I can ever find the pictures I made - missing again!

The trim makes a world of difference :). I especially love how your tree has turned out. It was already nice but you have made it even better. Also those lovely mini snowmen & Santa. Positively adorable!

I have that same dining set, Katie. I popped the cushions off the chairs (put them in the freezer for a short time and they pop right off) and then I rubbed the furniture with paint stripper to dull the finish and get the nasty varnish off. After that it was not too difficult to dry brush or stain with acrylics to get the color I wanted - which actually is very close to the color you want.

Love the room Katie! So cozy and Christmas-y. The teeny tiny Christmas cards are a wonderful touch!
