I had to run to the local Family Dollar for dog food this morning. I can't seem to go in there without looking around and I ended up buying a large box of silver glass ball ornaments to play with. This blue and red ornament was made by decoupaging tissue paper shapes onto the ball. Then I sprinkled it with fairy dust - a very fine glitter.
On this one I painted sections with silver glass paint. That gave a pretty matte finish to those sections that contrasts very nicely with the shiny silver.
This one got stripes with chunky white glitter. I had a lot of fun just playing. I did several others but these three are my favorites.
I also found this tiny princess tea set at Family Dollar. The pieces are nicely scaled for dollhouse use. I just need to make them look much less pink and plastic, lol. The teapot is made to hold all the pieces. I had planned to paint it to look like a porcelain teapot to hang on the tree. Silly me - I didn't even think about putting a mini scene inside. It's a good thing my hubby did. ;) That's gonna be a project for tomorrow during the football games. I promise to show you the results tomorrow evening.
I've been happily married for 33 years to my high school sweetheart and we have three great kids. All are young adults. I'm currently working part time as an instructional assistant at the local elementary school. My mini life is especially important to me because it takes me away (better than a bubble bath!) from the stresses of real life. I've been involved with mini-ing since the late 1980s with a break for about 10 years while my children were young.
My faith and my family are very important to me. I am so thankful that God blessed me with the gift of creativity!
