Trojan Virus

My laptop got one. Looks like I'm going to lose everything on my computer. :(

So, there's probably not going to be blog posts for a while. :(

The good news, is that I still have internet connection on another computer. :)
Maybe, I'll get all caught up on my blog reading now. :)

Current Projects Updated

I've been busy getting things done, that is always a good feeling!

This is what I made with the florals from Sans. She mentions the "largest bouquet to be dispatched from a virtual palace in Singapore in the week before and after Xmas '09." (giggles) I love her sense of humor! You can see that post here.

While I was creating that, I was inspired to do this. :)

I love, love, love how these came out.
They're in my etsy shop now.

Then, there was the mission couch from Ray.
Here's the inspiration photo.

I think it came out pretty close.

I know I go on and on about Ray's work, but I just can't help it! I loved the mission couch he did in the past. You can see where I blogged about it here. But, honestly, he's out done himself with this one.

Look at the details here.

Just amazing. Those are mortise and tenon. Just incredible!
(maybe I should be getting a cut for all of this promoting, LOL! I'm making myself laugh)
His work is just really that good. You can find his shop here.

The pillows weren't a part of the order, but, looking at the inspiration photo got me thinking about some vintage Waverly decorator fabric in my stash. They aren't the same style as the inspiration, but I thought they gave the same sort of "feel" in miniature. (They are going off as an extra goodie, shhhh... don't tell!)

Of course, I made a few extra and put them in my shop. :)

I got this picture from one of my customers.

It looks so real, doesn't it? I had to do a double take. There on the table is the runner I made for Christmas decorating. I think her scene looks fabulous, don't you? :)

Another new follower to welcome! :)
kimsminiatures and she has two blogs you can find them here and here.
Thank you for following Kim. :)

Now, I have to figure out what to do next. ;)

I'm baaaaaaack! LOL! ;)

Hello everyone!
Happy New Year!

I truly did not mean to be gone for so long!
I've really missed blogging and reading everyone's blogs.

What was just going to be a couple of weeks off, turned out to be longer than I expected, but, that's life sometimes, isn't it?

I hope everyone had a most enjoyable holiday season and hope that the new year is off to a good start for all. :)

Isn't this tree darling! I love it! I'm thinking about maybe hot pink and lime green ornaments, what do you think? I got this from De, she made it custom for me. You can find her shop on etsy here and her blog here.
Thanks, De! :)

Look at this!

A little something, something from Sans. She was celebrating her blog anniversary. Isn't that sweet? A hundred roses! I know exactly what I'm going to do with them, too. A subject for another post! (I love to tease, can you tell?lol) You can find Sans blog here, she has one of the best blogs and is a real doll, too!
Thanks, Sans! :)

Just because I haven't been blogging, doesn't mean I haven't been making minis! I've been working on some custom bar stools for an art deco bar for my friend Richard. You can find his blog here and his etsy shop here. He's just listed his first art deco room box.

I'm just about to upholster this!

Sorry, it's a little blurry. It's a custom order for Ray, his etsy shop is here.

Look what I found tucked behind the Christmas decorations in the attic!

My girls minis. I wonder if they still want them... hmmm...
You know I saved them because I thought they were important.
Now, all I want to do is play with them! lol ;)

So here it is 2010 and I'm diving in!
Lots to do and much in store for the new year!

I even have some more followers to, as they say, "Welcome to the Party!"

They are:
danitza zarate

Wow! That's a lot of new additions! :)
Welcome to you all and thanks for following me. :)
As usual, anything in pink on my blog is clickable, so click away and check them all out!

One last bit of news before I end this post. I've been chosen to be on the second Community Counsel at etsy. I am honored to have been chosen and will do my very best to represent my community. :)

I've added a couple of new items to my shop, so if you haven't been around in a while, check it out here.

Now, I'm off to see what you've been up to!
(fears catching up will take weeks!)
