Monday again!

Just thought I'd check in after the weekend! I have been trying to decide what to do with ebay.. with the huge fees they are now charging. It is getting quite greedy if you ask me.. But we shall see... I love posting bears on ebay... but getting so many high fees is just not very good.
We had a very busy weekend and we managed to get alot more done on the dollhouse. We are now putting an addition on as well. Brad wants to show off his skills and I am more than happy to have an even fancier house :)
I also started on a new bear! I want to have him done in time for St Paddy's day.. which seems to be creeping up on me quickly.. I will do my best. If not I will just post him after. Also my 2 new Dragons are coming along. I hope to have them done soon as well... but I have put them aside untill I get my little st paddys day fellow done!

Love and Hugs!

For the love of all things miniature


Today I'd like to share my 3 year work in progress. It's my Haunted/Halloween Doll house. I purchased this house kit with great intentions of being able to create this fantasitc house in a few month span.... Then I opened the box. This was more than I could handle on my own. With my master whine to my Dad, he offered to help me with it. WE did do some work, but other things (blah, Work!) seemed to occupy him more. heehee. When I met Brad and I mentioned I had this dollhouse.. well he offered to help me with it.. lol. Poor poor unsuspecting Brad. ;)
I must say though we had a blast working on it.. even with his friends making fun of him. Then Brad had to move... long story shortened.. It had to be put away :(. Two moves later and the purchase of our first real house... Saturday... Brad asked if I wanted to start working on it again.. Do I??? YESSS!!!! So out it came with all the supplies. we put the windows in, and the door.. and not the tedious task of Shingles. Brad has mentioned that he could shingle our house faster than the doll house.. lol. Anyway.. this is it so far. I am very excited to start work on the inside! Just had to share why I have no new bear this week.. lol. :)
Love and Hugs!

Love is in the air!

Happy Belated Valentines Day! I had a nice quiet evening with Brad and we watched 3:10 to Yuma. Okay movie... Not really good, not really bad.. just a movie.. lol. We are supposed to go out for a Valentine dinner tonight if Brads knees are not hurting to badly (fingers crossed) lol.
Other than that I have been working on 2 special dragons. I hope to have them done within a couple of weeks. I am also working on one very detailed Easter piece and one St. Paddy's day surprise. I can't wait! I am having so much fun coming up with some new ideas. Long weekend with weekend so I hope to get lots done! I will be posting a small Bunny on ebay this coming week. This little guy was featured in my Teddy Bear Scene article.

Have a great weekend!
Love and Hugs!
