Two posts in one day!?
I can't explain it. It just happened! Ok, there are always things I could be doing other than working on minis. Given a choice, I usually chose minis! The last few months, I have not put much time into them or even the blog choosing to do other things. Well, I had fun, but minis were always in the back of my mind.
And then it happened! I saw Hey it's Muff's last post. It was on organizing her fashion dolls et al. When you go to her blog you can be sure you will come away having learned something new, fun and useful! I wish I were as skilled as she is. Her blog is such a positive place and her pleasant, friendly and playful personality really shines through as she shares her knowledge with everyone! Isn't that why we all log into mini world? Stop by her blog and educate yourself while having a few giggles.
Anyway, something inside of me became motivated and I started cleaning, sorting and organizing my doll studio like a mad woman! The more I did, the more...I did! That was the answer! Clutter and disorganization dampened my creativity. Before then every time I would go in there I would do a little then just stand there not knowing what to work on next and I wasn't satisfied with what I did work on.
Now, I have created the Barbie section in the outer room liked I always wanted. I had to dismantle my beloved park. I tried setting it up in another location temporarily. It has to be moved to a better spot that will give it justice.
In my madness I got an idea for a high rise office building overlooking a park in the 1:12 room. I like it because it adds a modern-urban look. I may tweak it and remove most of the park area out front.
Today is the third day and I still have the organization bug! Sometimes we just need a little positive energy from our friends.
Thanks Muff! :-)
Two views of the table with the office high rise and part of the park in the front. They are two shelves one placed on top of the sideways one on the bottom. I like them because they add a touch of urbanism to the 1:12 room. I like the atrium area.
I have two more shelving sections left. Wondering where they may pop up. hmmm
|These guys are just hanging out in the lobby for now :-)|
These are a few additions to current projects. Before now, I just couldn't really get into them like I wanted.
|The partially finished bathroom in the big house. Some things like the tub tile wouldn't cooperate. I have a few more great features waiting to be installed|
That is a window frame on the left wall. It is not attached. I could not find just the right window scene to go in there. Then my printer would not function right sometimes. I had to back off for a while. There are a lot of accessories waiting to be added to the room. Note the chalkboard menu specials sign on the front left
|I tried out the logo on to-go bags and a menu|
The candy store in the Mall
|Here are the new glass shelves in the mall candy store. I still need to make lots more candy to fill them! Click on the picture to see the details!|
|A bit more work and I will be finished. The candy dispenser on the left wall is micro beads glued into acrylic battery packaging. The shelving in the top picture on the right wall used to be scrabble tile holders now painted red.|
More pictures to come soon!
