The front of the house is finished - if, of course, I don't discover something that needs changed. You can't really see it in the photo but I edged the inside of the blue rims on the shutters and door with a fine black line. It makes the shutters look much more finished. The bay and porch have black scrapbook paper roofing. I will cut the paper into shingles for the actual roof and then add splatters of other colors to make them look more like real shingles. I also highlighted some of the bricks in other colors. I may do more but the ones I've done made a big difference in the overall look of the brick sheets. Just the sides to go! Then I will start to think about what I want to do with the attic and continue to add accessories.
I'm using contact adhesive to put the brick on. It's working really well. I will be glad to be done with the smell though. At this rate that should be soon!
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!
