Stop Starting with S’s!

Not sure if anyone has noticed, but my last 5 posts have begun with the letter “s”. If you don’t believe me look at the right sidebar at my recent posts. I assure you this was not on purpose, but I found it interesting enough to share. πŸ™‚ I am struggling in the living room […]

Stairway to the bedroom, part 2!

Well, it’s amazing what just one night of working to actually finish something does for you. As I have explained, I have theis horrible thing when it comes to crafting/building or whatnot where I can’t actually ever finish anything. I can start it. I can get all the way to the end…but never finished. Even […]

Stairway to the bedroom

As soon as I typed stairway in the post title, I thought of Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin . Then I started to sing Hotel California by The Eagles, …..actually just repeating the verse “on that dark desert highway, coooool wind in my haiiir.” — you know the one. Lol. The above (and below) […]

Stairs, Knitting Kit, and Sweet Potatoes

Orchid Bedroom Update

It’s almost done! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Over the past few days, I managed to get the rest of the paneling in. I also finished gluing down and sealing the floors. Here’s a peek! The room is a light ivory, made by mixing ivory and white together… Lol, Simple. I wanted something lighter toΒ  keep the room […]

Making Dollhouse Lamps

I ordered some extremely cheap lights off of eBay. They cost me less than 5$ combined including shopping. I wasn’t expecting much BUT the seller accidentally sent me two different lights, AND one was bent.. Also, they are off scale, so I had to come up with a way to salvage them. Enter pliers. After […]
