A little catching up..

I know.. Two posts in two days?! I'm on a roll! Lol... It is crazy how life changes from year to year and where your life can take you. I do apologize for not blogging as I once did.. I am still making things... But I tend to be on Facebook instead. Yes I finally broke down and opened a Facebook account. For me, it's more private and I can see Family:) But I do miss my blog friends! If your on Facebook- and I know who you are.. Come find me:) I plan on opening a page for Katie's Corner, just haven't gotten around to it yet... 

So enough with all the crap you don't wanna hear... And on to the pictures:)
This is a church I built recently. I had planned on making four, but didn't realize how much work was going to go into one, lol. 
Every piece of wood was hand cut, painted several times, and sanded before being added to the house. I wanted a beachy/shabby chic feel to it:)
I so love how it turned out.. I kinda don't want to list it:) But I will sometime in the near future. 

Next is a birdhouse clock that I have decided not to sell.. Only because I added something personal to it. The time happens to be an anniversary date:) I would however like to get my hands on more clock kits one day to make some for the store. 
And my last picture is of a Mushroom house that seems to have become another unfinished house. It needs door hardware, the inside needs to be done- but I wasn't thinking of how to get my hand in the hole when I was making it- duh! And I have a small base for it that I want to landscape. 
Not even sure what scale this house is, It's less than 8 inches tall. And so stinking cute:) 

So as you can see I have been trying to do something.. I've just been quiet:) 
Hope all of you are doing well.. And Thank you to those of you that have gotten in contact with me to check on me:) I really do appreciate it!

Until Next Time...

Ready for Spring!!

Well Hello there:) Thought Id stop by and say hello... It's been awhile! Not much new here... Still trying to put 2013 behind me and move on:) 

I have been doing a little work here and there, but to be honest, it is just too darn cold to do much of anything! I can't wait for spring:)

I have been making a collection of paper items. I've actually been working on the tubs for months- they need so many coats of paint to make them feel sturdy, that I got bored and put them up for a long time... I've also found that using thicker paper helps- duh! The first batch I did in Vintage White and made them look older by making my rust spots bigger... At least in my mind they look older:)
I've always had a passion for these pitchers.. Even have my own collection in the real life of ceramic ones:) These are listed in my store.. And I have single ones that I can list. 
The tubs I'm still photographing and will get listed one day- as always if your interested, feel free to email me and we can talk:)
I love how they stack:)
And I still have a box full to paint:) I'm thinking pastel colors for Spring? 

Hope everyone is enjoying the New Year! 
Until Next Time:)
(I'll try not to stay gone as long next time, lol)
