Mrs. S., Davy, and the range all got some updates today. Mrs. S.'s blouse had a floral design imprinted on it. I added a bit of paint to make the print coordinate with her skirt. Also, I added a design to her apron because plain white didn't seem quite right for the 1950s. I worked on Davy's coonskin cap to give the crown some texture and a better color. The range was touched up all along the back panel and I added some watch parts to give the dials dimension. I made all new knobs from watch stem knobs mounted on a circle punched out of a tealight cup. Much better!
Davy also got brown eyes like both of his parents and auburn hair like his mom. I really like how his hair turned out. It's so much better than the bright yellow that was supposed to be blond. He also has a few freckles across his nose and cheeks.
I don't think I'd posted a photo of the finished back of the house. Ta da! ;-)
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!
