organised workspace or confused chaos?

Its been a couple of months since I've posted anything, and I have missed this...
through blogging I have met "virtually :-)" some lovely people!

Its been a crazy time for the last couple of months as typified by my scene of chaos :-)
I hope to blog more now things have settled, sorry for the silence, I know I have missed a lot... :-(

re-ment sweets and cakes

These re-ment sweets as so delicious I decided to make a sweet and cake shop just to house them... this way I enjoy candy without the worrying ;-)

re-ment from the elegant sweets series, and the megahouse cake de cafe series and some homemade and bought cakes.

the pick and mix perspex display was made by me :-) it reminded me of woolworths and their pic 'n' mix

dreaming of an office!

I always enjoy making office scenes, maybe its something to do with how I always seemed to visit the student office during my days in Uni, and how I spent most of my time in the faculty offices as a lecturer. There were always different scenes being played out, and every now and again, I find myself smiling at some distant, but interesting memory.
In one of the campuses, there was a computer lab that had an L-shaped research area. It was next to the printer area, and it always seemed to be empty, I remember wondering why the students never took advantage of this facility.
A couple of weeks ago, I went to my local library to use a reference book, and there was no where to sit, and suddenly I remembered this seating area and wondered if it was still empty….as I could definitely use a seat, right about now :-)
So, as you do, I went home and made a scene :-)
I used the ground floor of the waterside way house which was an art gallery! Only a few weeks ago, one of the things I love about this hobby, is that it allows me to indulge myself by being able to change the layout of a room whenever I want, no heavy lifting involved:-), I have tried doing it in my real home but its not fun to have to undo all your lovely work when everyone else keeps bumping into a sofa which was not there in the morning! Or tripping over the coffee table which you moved to make the room look nicer…..not everyone likes change :-)
Ok, I’m rambling….
I have made an office and reception area, with a number of different ideas and real inspirations put together, I have made some of the furniture and accessories myself and I am really enjoying experimenting with things. For those of us that love re-ment! Pls pls let me apologise in advance for what I have done :-)
I have a large cookie jar from the re-ment fun meals or mini-sweets set, that was too big for my 1/12th kitchen and I decided to use it to make a water-cooler for the reception area of the office. I used 2 wooden crates and covered them in adhesive foil and made a hole in the top for the cookie jar’s cover, I then attached a jewellery finding to it, to make the spout, and for the water….the cookie jar is still intact :-)
I also made the counter/desk for the reception area, the drawing table, the black and white shelving units next to it, and I also made the L-shaped table/desk for my design/research area! (From acrylic and IKEA coat hangers!) And I also made the desk that has the printer and fax machine on it.
I used foam-board to make the room divider. This gave me a chance to use the re-ment stationery sets, they are just adorable!

I have made the black ad white shelving unit on the left which has 4 compartments on the top and 3 shelves. I also made the black and white tall tv cabinet I started off making a simple Ikea-like shelf and then decided to make a tv unit I used thick plasticard :-)

my art gallery

Hee hee, this is wonderful as I can look at beautiful art without leaving home, ok :-) I decided to create an art gallery/museum in my waterside way house as I imagined the owners wil be creative types who love to be surrounded by beautiful works of art! I really enjoyed doing this. The long display table was the most fun as It is made out of "Jenga" blocks which my boys got tired of playing with! and i covered them with masking tape to create the L-shaped display for the objects on display:-)

my own little park

I have always loved going to the park with my kids :-) especially when it is quiet! I have a favourite spot at my local park which is near the pond so i decided to replicate it in miniature
on the left are a few trees and there is meant to be a park bench under the tree but the bench I made was out of scale :-) the path leads to a rockery and next to the pond is a rabbit or mole mound I always smile when i see the little holes in the mound :-)

open plan lundby space :-)

I have always loved watching property makeover programmes and I especially like 'grand designs', there was an episode where the couple building a house wanted an open plan ground floor and it was lovely so I decided to use my basement in my 12th scale house and create an open plan apartment using my lundby furniture :-)
I put in a small white partition wall to section off the bathroom! from the kitchen and the rest is open

updates to waterway side house

in the house I had struggled for so long with the kitchen cos i really wanted to use my re-ment furniture and this is the effect I got with just 2 of my cupboards and the scales didn't work with the rest of the house so I am going to use 12th scale furniture and redo the kitchen and post oictures soon :-)

a view through the window into the living area :-)

an experiment:-) i placed this balcony which I made from stair railings and decorated using felt and lundby plants and re-ment room furniture on the balcony of the house :-)

made some changes to the bathroom, showing my lovely sink by pinchofpepper :-)
