I finally assembled and glued together my house.  I'm still working on the furnishings.

I finished a second WIP.  I assembled and glued together the tiny tea house I've been working on for about 9 months.  I don't have all of the furnishings completed yet, those will come over time.

The rooms upstairs are a tea reader's room and a sitting area.

This is going to be a tea room.

And this will be a little shop.

I finished a table and chair for my sitting room yesterday.  The colors go with the wallpaper.  The chair pad was a present from cackle.   Kiss

OK, I got my first item done!  It's my quilt shop's December block of the month.  Since I completed them within each month's timeframe and took them in the first Tuesday of every month, my 12 blocks only cost me $5 for the entire series (pattern and fabric).

When I did the Mini 13 Days of Halloween last year with MissingWillow she said that she'd love to see a tutorial on how I covered her candle holder/candy dish with polymer clay.  So I may work on writing up a tutorial for that.  Smiley

Here it is, love it!

306  Star Wars Magnets in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by MissingWillow on: December 24, 2011 08:22:58 AM
As a last minute Christmas gift for my Star Wars loving daughter, I crafted some magnets for her out of poly clay.  I used a round cutter for the base of each one so they are a standard size.  There are so many options to further expand her collection, I'm planning to add to it next year.

307  Meet Our 4Q2011 Home Sweet Home Featured Member - Jenxx! in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by MissingWillow on: December 19, 2011 04:17:57 PM
We've enjoyed her giant cheeseburger pillow and carousel horse constructed from a child's toy posts.  We're pleased to announce the 4Q2011 Home Sweet Home featured member is Jenxx!

Tell us a little about yourself.
I'm a retired snowbird who spends the summers in Illinois & winters in Florida.  I've always had a passion for creating & spend more time at it than is good for me.   I'm willing to use just about any medium available...my latest is clay classes.  I'm loving those altho they're limited to summer.  I've learned that I'm something of a maverick who doesn't follow directions well &, while I love hunting the internet for inspiration,  prefer to create my own patterns.

Your 28" cheeseburger seemed to be well received!  Do you have any plans for additional giant food pillows?
My cheeseburger began as an entry in a contest to "Create a Pillow".  I spent several weeks in the thinking stage before doing anything tangible....this is my usual approach to a project.  It actually took me only a day or two to complete it.  It's quite simply made with mostly circles.  People have suggested I follow it up with a hot dog, fries & a coke.  I've figured out how I would proceed but haven't found the time yet.

Your carousel horse is stunning.  What was your inspiration and what was the hardest thing about the project?
My carousel horse is one of my favorite creations.  I had seen them several times & hunted flea markets for a child's toy to buy at a reasonable price.  When I finally found it for $10, I enlisted Hubby to strip it from the frame & mount it on a closet rod.  That was easy for him but would have stymied me.  I guess he really IS worth keeping around.  The rest was time consuming but not difficult.  I had to repaint part of the saddle because the paint didn't match but it went pretty smoothly otherwise.   

On what other Craftster boards will people find projects you've posted?
I've posted a number of crafts on other topics---all listed in my photo gallery.  My most industrious is probably my life size old world Santas.

What's your favorite item on Craftster created by someone else?
I've found so many fantastic art & craft projects on this site that it would be difficult to choose a favorite.  I've found tho, that I tend to love the ones that go beyond patterns & instructions to explore a new direction.  These are the most inspiring & I really appreciate that the Craftster community provides a venue where everyone can showcase their creations so they will inspire others.

SheepBlue made me some furnishings for my tea reader/fortune teller's room in the most recent jar of whimsies swap.  Aren't they fantastic?!  My loot included a wheel of fortune matchbook, palmistry hand, knit rug and tiny bag of rune stones.  She's awesome!  Smiley

310  My First Attempt at Pottery in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by MissingWillow on: December 07, 2011 10:30:35 AM
My husband recently decided he hates all of his hobbies so wanted to try something fun and different and picked pottery.  How cool is that?  We found an art studio about a 90 minute drive from here and have been going every week.  I'm pretty happy that I'm able to produce pots but they are all pretty small (my largest is about 5 inches across).  Baby steps, right?  We're both really enjoying it and he's been making some noise about having our own studio some day.  Is there anyone out there with a home studio I could PM for some advice if/when the time comes?  Here are a few examples of my first pots.
