I live in Lancashire with my husband of 31 years,Steve and our 3 Springer Spaniels, Bramble, Bracken and Moss. We have 1 daughter, Emma, and a newly acquired son-in-law, Joe. I am passionate about dolls houses and anything miniature and am never happier than when lost in my "own little world" (hubby's words) creating "stuff" to fill my dh with.
After sorting out my Fimo problem there was no stopping me, some of it worked, some of it didn't and was sent to the dustbin but I had fun playing. One of the things that did work was some strawberries which were rather fiddly but I'm pleased with the end result.
I put them in the strawberry planter that I received for renewing my magazine subscription.
I've also been busy making toys for the attic nursery in my dh.
One of the girls at work is terrible for killing plants, she definitely doesn't have green fingers, and any plants that enter her office are doomed! so I made her something she couldn't kill.
Anyone who owns a dh will know that even when it's finished it's not really finished and so it is with the pub room-box. One of the customers is always in, sat at the corner of the bar using his laptop, so I thought I would make an image of him being in the pub.
The laptop has warped a bit but it will be OK when it is glued down. I don't know whether you can see from the photo but the glasses have lenses in them (nail varnish).
The DH is on a course in Coventry at the moment, he's back tonight, so I've had a bit more spare time to play. Last night I painted some garden trellis green, it was brown but it looked really plasticky so a coat of paint was needed. Then I set about painting some rose shaped bead spacers red so I can make a climbing rose to go up it
All in all I've been a busy bee and made quite a bit, the decision to stop selling minis was a good one.
