Nothing Much To Show....
It was one of Those very busy weeks, Dear Readers, when it seemed as though there was no Time for making Anything, even though there had been an extra hour added to the calendar recently! And now that it is "standard Time" again, it is dark in the evenings when I get home and that makes it really hard to photograph anything! But I did manage to get one small step accomplished on the Secret Christmas House kit! And that was to put primer on all the surfaces prior to gluing any of the decorative papers on. The instructions for this kit are very "visual" meaning they are almost entirely pictures with very little written direction to follow. In one of the pictures showing the papers for the walls glued on, I noticed the interior surfaces looked as if they had been painted white.... so I am assuming the entire house should be "primed" to protect the wood before gluing the papers on. The above shot shows the house with the primer done. I was about to start right in on gluing the wall papers when I noticed that there were papers for the floors, but not for the ceilings! Well, I am sure you know how I feel about un-decorated ceilings! I decided that I could not proceed until I had painted all the ceilings.... which was going to require that I study the decor for each room that is already provided....! I am really trying to just complete this kit without going too far off the plan!
So while I was pondering those ceilings,
I noticed another tiny house that Pollyanna has found...
She has decided that she needs to "practice" this
miniature dollhouse decorating
before she starts on the beautiful big cabinet
which she is calling "Paradise Hall".
This smaller house will not need to be so grand and elegant.
She can learn different techniques without worrying
that she will mess it up too much!
She has managed to get the first coat
of primer on all the rooms.
But she forgot about the front wall.
It isn't attached and doesn't fit right.
She wonders if Maybe she should try to add hinges
so it would open like a cupboard.....
Which would need to be done before she painted any more walls!
This was going to require some planning!
Well, Dear Readers, I hope you don't mind
if I leave you here
with Nothing much to show but the Primer!
