Unfortunately, there was no place for me to sit without cleaning up first. So I was elected.
I got the iPad, turned it to "Roswell" on Netflix and went to work.
I got enough stuff put away so that I could walk around and sit down. That was a mistake. I think that I should never clear the chair until the rest of the room is finished.
In my defence, I needed to sit down to pop the rest of the make up out of the big flat boxes that I bought on after Christmas clearance at Walmart. I did that, and as I did, I started thinking of uses for different pieces.
BIG mistake. I should never think while I am working....Just work.
First I thought of a lipstick tube with a mini scene in it that I had seen sometime ago. I wrote about it and then when I got a comment from Eliza about Sue Ann Thwaite of Lady Bug Miniature Fairies, it came back to me where I had seen it. Not in a magazine...At a show. She makes all kinds of lovely tiny fairies and she does some in lipstick tubes. If you would like to see them, go here. http://www.ladybug-fairies.com/ She also sells kits for making them. They are great. I am in no way in competition with her. I just liked the idea.
I am taking the photos and directions down, even though it wasn't a fairy scene. I don't think that it would be right to leave it up.
Instead I quickly took the boy and the tree out of the tube. I found one of the eyeshadow boxes from the same assortment. I have not seen mini scenes in eyeshadow boxes and this one is my own idea, so I feel free to put it up.
Actually, I think that I like this one better. It is more "Tessie sized".
She can put it in the townhouse on a table or shelf.
I think that I have some of these eye shadow boxes around here somewhere with no lettering on them. I may just have to make some more of these. It was a matter of minutes and lots of fun. Start saving tiny boxes and do some room boxes for your dollhouse.
See you tomorrow.
