Dearest Debbie from Tiny Treasures reminds me on a regular basis i need to make more flying out cupboards for the show. She is really good with advice and always points me in the right direction. She tells me off when i go off to another planet with mad ideas that will never work, and smacks my hand on a regular basis when i have not got enough work completed. Somehow she has a belief in me that i'll make enough to fill a table in roughly 4 weeks time, while i have no faith i'll ever get there.
I've not taken photos but she also sent me a parcel last week to help me out with my stall. Some of the items i bought but she also sent me other items i can use and lots of poly bags for my pick and mix. Not that the pick and mix is getting anywhere yet! Thank you Debbie!
So here is my new version so far of the second ever flying out cupboard... will start the third tomorrow.
This one is a lot slimmer and probably suited to a hall area. I didn't draw any plans and just went with what happened.
I really lack woodworking tools and have just one basic saw, a cutting mat and a ruler, but somehow manage with these. I don't even own a mini clamp!
Need to finish it tomorrow and then start to fill. I'd like to base this one around berries unlike the last one which was pumpkins, and use red tones mixed with green and golden browns.
For the last few days ive been working on lots of little minis i will show when i can take photos, but today decided i hated the dragon table and so have moved all the items to a new one. The new table needs new legs, lol. I snapped one that came with the table and so have to sort that tomorrow. Just imagine it with legs.
The amimal cupboard is also akmost complete. I find items like tables and cupboards can sit looking at me for weeks until i know what to to with them, but so far i'm pleased with it.
Apologies for the bad pics, should learn to blog when its daylight.
In my stash of minis i have about 12 mixing bowls. I'd like to fill them with ingredients like the witch is mixing something up in the kitchen or her potion room.
I spent ages last week sanding and refining some bulky wooden spoons i want to add, but as for ingredient my mind is a blank. Any ideas for what to fill them with would be great. Soetimes i get stuck.
Apologies if you have emailed me and i have not answered. It's the easter school holidays and im not getting much time to use the comp, its kind of a fight to use it.
I also have a terrible memory and can sign onto the comp to read and answer emails and then go off elsewhere, leave the comp and then remember when somebody else has claimed it as theirs.. I've had a few messages through etsy and apologise for not answering yet... its on my list!
