I must apologize. I am so, so, so sorry that I haven't posted since April. It's just been a long and difficult summer, to say the least. Yikes! However, I have done a little work on some miniatures and will soon get back to posting more regularly. A warm thank you to all of you and a friendly welcome to the new followers! You guys are amazing! Thank you for all your kind and helpful comments!
Here's something I have been up to this July. I taught a basic miniature room box class to some beginning grade school students. In need of a model for the class, I had to quickly whip up a room box of my own. I was able to finish the necessary elements before the class started--walls, floors, ceilings, etc. But after the class was done I just couldn't stop adding more details. It's almost done. I will post pictures of the completed project soon. In the meantime, here are some pictures of the "Blue Room" in progress.

The following are some pictures of my student's work. They had so much fun! It's great to see young kids get excited about miniatures! I think I may have found some future miniature enthusiasts.
And yes, I am working on Barton Cottage too. I'll be honest, work is going very slow--but this fall I am determined to get things going full tilt. Christmas is going to be a big goal for me. I want to decorate the cottage, and having the cottage done by the holidays would be wonderful. Fingers crossed.

Well, I will be in touch soon. Please keep your comments and suggestions coming. I wish you all great joy and success. I look forward to seeing your projects develop and grow too!
