She did such a great job that Koda wanted her to do a birthday cookie incorporating a monkey and the mocking bird symbol from the Hunger Games.
With real life issues taking a big part of our summer, miniatures have been put on the back burner - until today.
Made a corner display for my pond
My pond had some indents that needed to be filled in with resin water.
I added a layer of water and set it on a self to dry. One of my boys stopped by to visit. Like a little boy he stuck his finger right in the pond. It's a good thing I like him. ;)
A smidgen more water was added - then placed on a high shelf. Out of the reach of childern, adults and hopefully cats.
I also added another shelf as a home for the garage and swing set.
Little hands will be able to reach in and play with the garage and playground.
Now I have a mini mess to clean up.
Of course I have misc odds and ends to pick up. There is a miniature shop 45 minutes from my home but rumor has it there is a sale going on at Happily Ever After. I just need to see for myself. I have been shopping online and became friends with the owner for about 4 years now. It's time to see the live store. Dakoda and I (and maybe one of my boys) will be leaving Michigan to head to Ashburn VA in 16 days and 3 hours. We will spend a few days with Lori and head a little further south and visit my sister.
Even though I have not met Lori in person, we have become pretty close (along with Julie in Texas). It is a little scary to visit someone I have not met. I have done it once before withKeli and lived to talk about it. I am sure Lori is not some morbidly obese chain smoker with a hairy back, sitting behind his desk top, wearing only boxers, in his mothers basement pretending for the past 4 years to own a shop and made up a family. 99.9% certain.
I have also spent a little time on my real life house painting the bedroom.
