Hello dear readers and followers!
Four months is a long time not to post to my blog or make some minis and it's been quite frustrating. Having packed up my minis in August for the move to a new house, I fully expected to be up and running long before now. But after several delays, I am finally settled in. I know I won't have time to do all that I want before Christmas because the first order of business will be to repair the minor damage done to my dollhouses during the move. Easily repaired but it may take a little time.
By the way, for any of you who may have to pack up and move, I do have some advice for you, based upon my personal experience.
First, do not throw anything away before you move. Move it with you and after you're settled, decide what you want to keep. I don't know what I was thinking, but I wish I had some of my stuff back ( loose beads, small pieces of wood, scraps of material).
Second, re-organize just a little. In my old house, I had a certain place (or shelf) for glue and paints, for fabric and trims, etc. Now, in my new house, I have arrange all my stuff in the same order. The glue will always be next to the paint, fabric next to the trim, etc. It saves a lot of frustration to remember the general location of how you used to store your stuff.
Lastly, I did go to a thrift shop and picked up a lot of inexpensive, second hand food storage conatiners. Great for not only minis but all sorts of stuff.
They stack pretty well and I don't feel bad using a marker to label them.
Well, I'm off to start making some outdoor planters complete with flowers and greenery. Hopefully, I have some photos soon.
Thank you all and have a great day!
