Playing around with an idea

Here's one

Updates to the office :-)

I have been making new furniture recently after a long period of bleurgh.... perhaps better explained as feeling blue or maybe feeling a lack of creativity....  umm oh I don't know .... long story short...Life has been busy and I haven't blogged properly for ages. :-(

Well I decided to sort out my re-ment collections as my old catalogue system was out of date, due to so many cute new additions :-D I started on a couple of cases and was completely stumped at how disorganised I'd become :) I still need to sort out the cabinet and the ones in the dolls house ..ouch!

After the mess I made....see pic;-) apologies for the upside down pic

I decided to take a break and place some of the new handmade furniture in 'my office' in the waterside way house :-D

The desk on the left, the lamp on the desk and the Mac and tiny mouse are the bits I made and placed here :)

art gallery! inspired by a perfume top :)

I am always on the look out for something I can use in my dolls house or a specific scene. Sometimes I find normal dolls house pieces or sometimes it could be very obscure pieces that look like they would definitely not be useful, and yet I keep them. :) I was given a couple of tiny Avon perfume samples and liked the look of the little vials and decided to use them as vases. I also had a perfume top that reminded me of the gold coloured lundby vintage flower pot thing:) (they are approx the same size) so I decided to use that as well. I covered them with craft foil using DSST as shown below:)
Then I tried to fit them into the house... hmmm needless to say Icouldn't seem to fit them anywhere, so I made a whole scene just around them:)

I have been playing around with different stamps and crafting techniques using enamels and decided to create some modern art which I placed in the scene hence my "art gallery"

The 2 shelves on the left are re-ment and shelf on the right is from Dolls House emporium which I stained and distressed to age it.

All the art work in the room, apart from the 2 pictures on the left (of vases) has been made by me:) using different techniques with foiling, shrink plastic, candle moulding, stamping and enamelling.

The large white cubes and light cubes for a mantelpiece :) the ones that the lights keep changing!

Open Plan in Waterside Way House

I have placed my handmade kitchen units which were in my other house in the waterside house, and I think it works :)

I have a thing for butterflies at the minute hence my picture on the wall ;)

I decided to  make some new vases for my house using fimo, but I couldn't make it work without having my thumbprints on it, so I decided to make quirky shapes since that wouldn't matter;-)
I also made a collage/altered art book :) and the pages have writing and butterflies on them!
The painting is done with watercolours on a mini gift tag!

Playing with blue light :-)

Its the weekend!
What should I do?
mmm! I know I'll test a new lighting system in the waterside Way house :-)

I have always wanted to have spotlights in my house and I haven't been able to find a lighting system i liked, then i decided to look for a system i could create myself!

I wanted one that was battery operated as I'd recently moved the house to a different section of my living room.

I found car led lighting systems and Christmas tree lights, but couldn't find a bulb size i was comfortable with.
I went into a pound store, and I found their a set of snowflake lights and took it home took it apart and rearranged it and tada! i now have some kind of strip lighting....not sure if blue light is the new white...:)
