Getting Back in the Groove

Friday, August 25th, 2017

I am still moving stuff from my old house to my apartment. I think before I move any more boxes, I need to organize what I have here and find a few major items that are missing in action during the moving process. I am contemplating changing this site to add an e-commerce area to offer the items I make as well as other mini/dollhouse items I am able to obtain. We shall see how today and the weekend go. This will become a rather interesting project for the weekend. I promise to keep everyone updated to my progress.

Another Fly in the Ointment

Saturday, October 8th, 2016

This year has not been my year for working on items for Martie’s Miniatures. In April, I had knee replacement surgery. I checked in at a rehab center for 20 days of RNR…NOT as who could rest in such a place. You aren’t even allowed to sleep late! However, it did help me to stay there as the PT department was excellent. I went home to out patient rehab. Staying on my eating plan was the hardest part of rehab. What part of NO WHITE BREAD do they not understand.Actually, it’s no wheat products, sugar, or white rice or potatoes.

Moving right along…. losing weight enabled me to find a lump in my breast. Yup…I now have breast cancer. Only I don’t have it right now as I had surgery. Tumor removed with a clear margin and the lymph nodes cancer free, Chemo would only help 2% so no need for that. Only radiation and a pill.

I do need to get my act together as I have a mini show in Mooresville NC on Nov 5.  Check out my blog, Getting My Pink On.

Dinner and a Mini

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

I really look forward to December when I can get with my mini friends for Dinner and a Mini. It’s always exciting to see what project has been created for us to work on. This year, we worked on¬†Geppetto’s workshop. I haven’t finished mine yet, but as soon as I have it finished, I will upload a picture. The scene fits in a softball display box and comes with a lighted fire in the fireplace. I still have to finish the trim on the outside and make the selves and the counter on the inside. Then, I can make tiny toys and other furniture for the shop. For now, I must set this project aside to make way for Christmas. I promise to return to Geppetto’s Shop soon.
