I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

After several months of on-again, off-again work, I eventually stopped making junk for this project and declared it complete. Inside an 8" x 6" x 5" deep room box is a minuscule crafter's workroom. There is a vintage sewing machine, a thread cabinet, a (very cluttered) cutting table, and bookcase.







The lid of the room box can be lifted off to gain access to the interior and working with long-nosed tweezers paid off a thousand times over since none of the items are glued or affixed to anything. Even the seed beads in the bronze leaf tray can be removed. This was all good until I remembered it needed to be moved from the craft table to the sun room where I could take adequate pictures.  Tongue Luckily, there was little disruption as I carefully, cautiously, tight-rope walked it to the other room.

I was excited to have an opening thread cabinet so I could have more space to jam crafty things.



There are a gazillion more pics and a fun "I Spy" riddle for finding hidden items that Kid 3 wrote on my blog if you're interested.

That's adorable!

I always glue stuff down, either with silicone glue  or blue tack.  I don't like stuff wandering if the scene gets bumped.
