Well, I was really sad to see that I have not posted in a while, which really means I have not had time to do any miniatures lately. I just knew that when I did that last post, I would have the wiring done that weekend! But the reality is I have not even gotten to the store to buy the wiring tape, much less read about how to do it again. My current goal is to try again this weekend to see if I can get anything accomplished.
At times When I am reading through my favorite blogs, I really envy the time others seem to get to devote to their craft- getting to learn new skills & do the things their creativity leads them to. All of my ideas just seem to endlessly swim around my head with no way to try it out. Then I wallow for a few hours, put my big girl panties on, leave my own pity party & get back to my life.
So to pacify myself -I decided to post some photos of the very first kit that I ever did. It is a old type of toy store. Very basic... but still was a lot of fun.

This is the front

Looking through the bay window.

These bricks were really fun to do, I was so pleased with the way they turned out. I used the sticker kit & it was wonderful! So easy!
Same with the front sidewalk

Inside- photo is a little blurry, but it shows the lighting really well.

looking through the door

this is the birds-eye view. I did the wood flooring in there as well.

I hopefully will get some fun things done this weekend, I really want to make some blackberries that I found in a tutorial, also, I want to play with making molds for some of my breads. I have also been collecting some logos for the Chudley Cannons to put in Ron Weasly's bedroom.
