GETTING MY MOJO BACK!

Starting 2018 Right!


I hope everyone is having a wonderful 2018. I have vowed to blog more and do more with my hobby.

Just to let you know what I have done so far. I am not sure what this was. It looked much like a napkin holder. I wasn't sure how I was going to divide it so it would be big enough for a bed. So it sat there for years.

One day when I was reaching for something else it fell and split exactly in half the way I wanted it. I put is aside. Yesterday I happened to see it again and ideas started  popping into my head. I made it in about 10 minutes while I was on the phone with my daughter. It practically made itself!

The tile you see under the bed is the floor for the living room of the "Cat House" I am currently working on.

A special shout out to Mildred Henderson 
and other county friends !




Sorry about the poor photo quality. I need a better lite



Very strong cardboard from a kitty litter box


Another lighter piece of cardboard to make it more stable
Estimating the size (sorry she is not properly dressed!)

This is what each end looks like on the outside






Now, to make the bedding

This is from the bottom. The middle is silver but my reflection is in it. Thinking of covering it.
This is the room it is going to go into

    1. Shannon Hi!
      Thank you for the vote of confidence! I didn't want to look when I dropped it. I couldn't believe it split just right!

  3. I love it when things are recycled into something else. That will certainly make a very elegant bed. You have a good eye.

    1. Hello there 12Create!
      Thanx!
      Yes. I prefer to see how I can repurpose things into minis rather than buy new items sometimes.

    1. Felma Hi!!
      I am going to hold on to it for dear life! LOL I am still working on color co-ordination textiles etc. I have started with some flooring too. It is harder than I thought it would be because the ultra-modern d├ęcor is taking me out of my comfort zone. Take my hand...we are going to mojo heaven!

      Thanks! I miss you all when I am not blogging even though I am still lurking on your sites. The linen may be deep purple. I have a set already made, but I might make a custom one in another color.
