PLEASE SANTA I FORGOT SOMETHING!

Today has been absolutely horrible weather ways, really not a day for going out anywhere. so i got some swaps sorted out i finished needlepointing what are going to be footstools for a swap group im in online but unfortunately i still cant take any pictures i think i might just give in and buy another camera, if it had happened before christmas i probably could have put camera on my wishlist but these things always happen later and i have lousy luck lol....(wouldnt you know it?) so i suppose im just going to have to buy my own unless santa comes back pease i forgot something lol...
never mind at least im heading in the right direction getting things completed i set out to, all apart from my 20 odd dollshouses.... now dont get excited most are still in boxes and i know i should be getting on with those but i need to get my swaps out of the way first then i promise to complete a house (honest lol...!!)

NO MINI'ING


Today i didnt manage to make any minis but i made a firm decision to lose weight omg im so overweight its unvbelievable my nephew got some cctv cameras for christmas he's absolutely obsessed with them i didnt want to say too much after all im a 34 year old woman who has a huge collection of dollshouses lol....but in all seriousness he has them set up around the house and i happened to catch a glimse of myself in the monitor and let me tell you im not impressed i need to shed some weight

the awkward part for me is lack of movement in my left leg so excercise has to be of a certain kind no more bike riding for me so now what .... at least i suppose i can make mini cakes and enjoy them in a visual sense and not put weight on and not eat the real thing....i think im gonna break out the fimo tomorrow and crack on with some cakes.
here are some findings i found at a new bead shop in my town i just need to come up with some ideas to make stuff.

Back to mini-ing

Today i wallpapered two rooms in my new house.
like a big kid im really excited for christmas maybe i'll get some minis ...you know what its like with family friends and partners they just dont get it our mini hobby i mean to me its like a way of life and if i didnt have this hobby im not sure what i would do i love it but for all
those silly people that dont understand just dont know what their missing lol...can you imagine life without minis i couldnt, cant even remember a time before discovering this amazing hobby.
I might have to try imagining not buying anymore dolls houses though because im rapidly running out of room so i decided im going to have to give 24th scale a try lol...

PROOF OF MY OBSESSION




I Thought i would add some pictures of some of my houses these are mdf im not sure about this stuff it makes for easy assembly you notice i said assembly not completion but they are not as pretty as the american kits


I bought some findings today and i also decided to make some light switches from fimo they turned out ok infact very little can go wrong with something like that so they were definately Rachel proof which is a good thing.

This Could Be The Start Of Something


I thought i would try something new so i decided to write a blog im a complete technophobe so who knows where this will lead we will see??

I have been into miniatures for a few years and over that time i have
collected quite a few houses and kits, My favourite kits are greenleaf and corona but probably not the best for someone like me i have the attention span and memory of a goldfish and tend to get distracted very easy.....too easy in fact so these poor kits may be destined to stay in boxes for a very long time maybe forever!!
So by writing a blog it might encorage me to get started and even finish too who knows.
I will post pictures as i go along both of my progress on my houses and of my other love needlework i love stitching rugs and carpets and other bits and pieces for my houses.
wish me luck....!!
