A New, Old Project

I haven't started a new project in a while. I know, I build roomboxes all the time for other people but what I mean is a project that just looks like fun with no real "reason" behind building it. Just because I want to. You need to do those every now and then, to create. Or at least I do. I get a little stir crazy when I can't build or paint something just how I want to.

So I ran across this little vintage miniature shop kit and decided to buy it.



I was really excited to get it and start on it. Planning colors, trying to decide whether it was going to be for myself or to put in the Shop. I love tiny shops and have built countless kits over the last fifteen years or so. No big deal right? HA! 

When I opened the package I noticed a rattling sound, that should have been my first clue. The instruction sheet was simple enough, old but I was guessing easy to follow but it was hiding the truth. 







Holy crap right? It's like lincoln logs in there. Every kit I've ever built had walls, and a floor and then a roof. This is something totally new to me. Apparently these ARE the walls ;) You just have to take these zillion pieces and put them together to form a wall-ish kind of shape then another one, and another and supposedly you paint it before you put it together.  Well that's what I normally do but I know which part is which and where it's going to go. Not 100% sure how I'd know what color to paint these pieces. 

I just had to share. Have you ever built a kit like this? Hopefully it's easier than it looks..... wish me luck <3<3

Shabby Minis

I've always loved miniatures from the time I was a little girl. It's now one of my favorite things to paint and work with, set up for pictures and make for the shop.

I wanted a little portfolio here on the blog of some of my favorite past projects and also so new customers can see them in case they want to order. Most of the items shown here can still be found and customized for you. Feel free to email me.

Hope you'll enjoy looking back too xoxox
