I got a call from my husband today while I was at work, he just wanted to let me know that my order from miniatures.com had arrived. He knew how happy that was going to make me, indeed I ran home after work to come home to this:
I ordered this big box full of minis with the coupon that I received from miniatures.com for my entry in the last Creatin' Contest, where my record shop has been selected as one of the first time entrant winners. I can't tell how much fun it has been for me to prepare for the contest and making all the little accessories for the shop.
At this point, I don't even know where to start! So many things in the box :) Finally, I bought some tools. When I decide to buy some miniatures, I normally tend to buy the most important things I need first, and forget to invest some part of my budget into tools. The below were some tools that were missing in my tool box and I can't wait to work with them. I am especially looking forward to use the brass head hammer when wiring my projects, as the little brads and eyelets were until now I nightmare for me.
I also ordered some dollhouse stucco and lights for the upcoming contest.
I decided that there will be a kitchen in the next project and ordered a metal stove hood and a sink. I also ordered a lot of accessories and items I will need during the decoration.
And of course, on the bottom of the parcel, there it was, the main item I was waiting for, to start working: The Backyard Bungalow Kit for the HBS Creatin' Contest.
I can't wait to assemble it, but for today, it's already too late. Let's see if I will be able to find some time tomorrow, otherwise, it will have to wait for the weekend. I started to work on some 3D projects for printing. I will be sharing more on that in the upcoming weeks. In the meantime I would like to mention the wonderful article about Ilona and her work that appeared in the Netherland's DollsHouse Magazine. She's creating gorgeous flowers. If you did not see those yet, I highly recommend to visit her blog.
