Today was my first day of summer break. It's strange around here without Angel. I miss her and so do the other pets. I kept busy with household chores, some work for the church, and a bit of play time. Today I added the welcome sign on the door and the bulletin board by the counter. The bulletin board has notices on items customers are looking for, job wanted notices, and lost pet posters. There's even a tiny "what to do" list so the shop owner doesn't lose it. ;)
I also made this mirror and console set. I embossed thin craft metal in copper and then added verdigris to it. The mirror was made from mirrored poster board with smudges of black paint to make the mirror look old. There's a stacked button "vase" on the console shelf. I am very happy with the results of this project!
Here's the whole corner in one photo. Progress, slow but sure.
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!
