I have built the dollhouse and the furniture from the kits but nothing is glued.

I have started taking it apart to make a few changes. First, I will open French doors to the balcony. What good is a balcony that has no door leading to it?

I also made some plumeria flowers that will be part of gifts for my son's Japanese exchange student's family.

Adorable dinosaur and cute bath wrap. If you do not intend to wear it in public, the velcro should be enough.

A few projects from the last month:
apricot jam:

muesclun protection cages against the cats who mistake these for their toilets.

growing pineapples from pineapple tops

bracelet from short strand of fishing line found on beach and puka (holes) shells and corals.

Surinam cherries cage to protect against hungry birds. They have many berries available for them, but not the cherries.

small upside-down caramel apple pies( tarte tatin):

crispy elegant cookies called Russian cigarettes:

4  Cascarones in Easter by yoopidou on: April 04, 2015 10:35:41 PM

I  spray painted the eggs after filling and closing them. Then, I painted them with acrylic.

Easter projects
One decorated egg to keep:

The cascarones are ready to be cracked upon the family's heads. As they are bound to be destroyed, I decided the painting didn't need to be very neat. I aimed for cute instead.

One carved egg that won't be finished for this Easter but it's in progress.

I love the bookbox. You found the perfect wood for this project!

The hummingbird is very cute. How big are your paintings?

I made a 8 ft giraffe to surprise my daughter for April fools.

And a special dinner for a very picky eater of food he doesn't like: fish with avocado and coffee.

The avocado is removed from the skin and replaced by half a baked potato, the fish is chicken cut in the shape of fish and the coffee is chocolate fondue.
I wonder why nobody trusted me...

7  Giraffe in Completed Projects by yoopidou on: April 01, 2015 07:27:00 PM

My daughter dreams of the Giraffe Manor in Africa, where giraffes greats you in the morning by entering through the windows. This is way to expensive for a mere mortal. So, for April fools, I created an 8 feet giraffe to put in her bedroom.

It is not very realistic as it was done in a few hours. It is suspended from the ceiling with fishing line.

Cool warm socks!
I am always admiring all the handmade socks. It seems so much work.

I put up a dart board but some darts were ending up on the wall instead of the board. I had to save the wall. So I bought four cork tiles to put around the board. I painted them and glued them on a piece of wood.

Then, I noticed there were still a couple holes farther down but I didn't have anymore cork. So, I cut strips of corrugated cardboard and glued them together. Then I painted a beach close to our home.

Here is the wall now. I'm thinking it might look better if I add some decor on the sides.

Thank you! Smiley

Alwaysinmyroom, the top is removable but not the bottom. I got overly active with the stapler! So, I made a pad for the bottom.

I also made one for the top to put when I'm not around in hope of preventing the cat to scratch my chair.

Then I sew a cover for the keyboard as she likes to sit on it.

I have been busy giving a fresh coat to the living room.

First, I removed all my craft supplies from there. It still wasn't looking very good. There was too much of a mix of furniture collected other the years but with nothing tying them together. I didn't want to spend much money so buying new furniture and accessories was out. I decided I should use what I already had. Since I had light and dark wood, I opted for a mahogany color and since I already had made covers for some sitting a couple years ago I want with turquoise.

I darkened the pine shelves with mahogany stain. While I was at it, I also put a new coat and the dark furniture so it would hide all the tiny dings and dents they acquired other the years. They look new now. I painted the sofa, the day bed and the armchairs turquoise and made new covers for the pillows. I also painted the low table and the lamps' shafts.

I used an old kid table with peeling off yellow paint to make a new TV stand as the old TV stopped working and we bought a way too big new one(It didn't seem that big in the store!). So I sanded it, painted it, cut and added a shelf for the DVD player and game consoles.

I lightly sanded the rattan chairs and gave them a mahogany stain too. Then, I made new covers for the chair cushions.

While I was sewing the cushion covers, I saw my ordinary old black office chair. I imagined it repainted and with bright patchwork fabric. It took me longer than I thought but here it is.
