It's Sunday - oh dear LOL

Not a lot has been done on minis so far this weekend.  I'm about to start now and it's almost 2pm :( shame.. but my house was in such a mess I HAD to do something about it before I could really 'feel' like crafting.  Am I the only one who feels like this? Knows there are chores.. and can't do anything else (in fact I procrastinate) until the needed jobs are done?

But boy have I been spending up LOL Not only did I buy a new computer chair.. lashed out and got one I REALLY wanted (and subsequently fell asleep in it on the first sitting - *bliss*) but also bought myself a few other treats.  Not so sure about one.. we'll get to that...

Something nice to start with - this is the view on my way home.  I live pretty much straight ahead (across the water) - about 2 mins by car from the beach.  Beautiful!! Summer is coming!!

So.. down to spending.. firstly I bought a new book.. and a Dremel Trio!
I'm thinking the trio will be VERY VERY useful for one of my new projects.. (ugh the sideways blog bug strikes again!)

And a $0.99c bargain on ebay.. or is it.. hmmm...
Not so sure if I can do this one.. perhaps I can.. maybe not.  The lady selling it 'didn't have time for the hobby any more (stay tuned, there's another coming up).. doesn't look like anything has been done on this in years LOL.  It's chipboard.. ugh - and has been wet so many parts are swollen.  I'd have to replace the front doors, adjust hinges and so on.  I wasn't sure of the scale - it's 1:24.  
So.. was going to throw it out (for 99c why not..) BUT.. I accidentally bought some brass furniture in 1:24.. so why not use it! 

The 1:24 furniture: came a while ago.. now I have somewhere to put it! OH YES blog bug - lets show this one upside down!! (I DID make sure before I uploaded all these images that they were the right way up btw..)

So.. while I was picking up the above little wreck of a home.. she showed me the other house.. and yes.. I won that too (WHERE am I going to PUT these places??)
$25.. rather appealing little place, I have something in mind for it.. ONE day.. *sigh*

Got my printer working, so printed out some pages of stuff from Jennifers printables, which I'll go and work on now :) 
Simple but fulfilling! Nice to have my printer up and running! (OMG Sideways yet again?)

A few more hours left in the day.. dinner, bed.. then back to work *sigh* This is my messy, crowded, tiny horrid office I share with .... my son LOL

That's it for now.  If I finish some of my printables stuff I'll post it maybe.. depends on how they come out!
Hope you're all enjoying the weekend.  


  1. Youve certainly got your work cut out for you with the 1/24th scale house ! Is the other one the same scale ? Good luck with both :)

  2. I just love the view that you get travelling toward home, looks like a great area, especially in the summer. I also love the book, would like to have the same as well!! The little houses will be good projects. The first makes me think of a Swiss chalet and the second looks like it needs climbing roses on the walls. keep us posted on your progress. Have fun with the dremel too. Hugs, xxx

  3. Hi Miniaussie! Great to finally find your blog after seeing your comments over the months! Looks like you've got some fun projects ahead. Don't you love a bargain? 99 cents--woohoo! :-) Welcome to my blog:
