Visit the blog party and show your desk at the Stamping Ground.
The first day I've had at home in a couple of weeks was so nice--did housework, and then did dollhouse work! Very fun and and relaxing.
If you don't know, I've had this dollhouse re-do project going on. I've changed my Victorian-style dollhouse from a traditionally-decorated dollhouse to a living scrapbook/art journal of sorts. Why not do what I want--I can always paint over it!
Here's my real desk by the way--looking at stickers and papers for the dollhouse and there's my Tinkerbell mug right after I drank all my coffee! An eyeshadow laying there my daughter bought me.
I decided to paint the dollhouse chimney white and then stamp on it, like I would stamp in my art journal. I found a clip-on butterfly and added it to the top with some branches. I like the results!
The first room of the dollhouse I really wanted to get into was the craft room. I still have things to put on the walls. I started the kitchen too. It's all being done with decorative scrapbook papers, a lot of Christmas ornaments that look like dollhouse things, sentimental things like a vintage thread spool from my mother-in-law's sewing supplies, actual furniture from my own childhood dollhouse, a little kitty statue a very special little boy gave me twenty years ago because it looked like my kitty at the time, hand-knitted floor rugs, items being embroidered just for this dollhouse, and more photos coming. Just like a living scrapbook!
|A little sewing basket and magazines in the craft room. I cross-stitched a tiny pillow.|

|Love my little sewing machine!|
|Don't ya just wanna play in my little craft room?|
|The kitchen is coming along too.|
|Added a word at the base of the dollhouse. I like it.|
|Wasn't sure if the stamping would work--but it did. Also added chipboard flower stickers.|
Still getting over a cold (doctor said my lungs are clear thank goodness) so if my week goes well, I hope I can finish up the middle floors and get to the living room. Happy Wednesday everyone!
