Mum of 2. Let go of all my interests for a few years and found I was missing something - thus my turn to miniatures! Haved loved anything 'little' since I was very young :) But then I bought a sewing machine.....
We're in the motions of moving to another place, as I mentioned earlier. The AWESOME thing about this place is my workshop!!! WOOHOO!! I finally looked inside it today - it has 4 lockers, concrete slab flooring.. shelving.. and ROOM TO MOVE!! Oh and power.. for my dremel tools.. it's awesome!!
Excited.. it's powered and lit - ready to go, and will fit all of my houses etc :) *happy dance*
Moving house - yet again!! This 'dream' home.. has been a nightmare! Wouldn't even know where to begin, but it was unsafe and I obviously put too many demands on the owner.. who has decided to sell up!! I have lots of news.. and a new blog in the making also - once we have moved house!
Hey it wasn't ALL bad... the bird life here has been amazing - I got my diploma in professional photography.. then bought a new camera as a reward to me.. and well... have NO idea how to use it!
As for the mini stuff.. I haven't touched it - not that I didn't' WANT to.. but the house didn't work as I'd planned.. my son and I have now leased a warehouse - so it will begin again! Pics to come!
The new home.. is about 5 mins from this one, though not near water - it 'works' though (this one was falling apart.. LONG story). I have a shed out the back I will turn into a workshop for me - NOBODY is putting ANYTHING in it but me this time.. the boys have their own shed. My Dremel tools finally have a home! woohoo!!
I'll be back in a month or so - and my tools will be out.. my pub will be in the working again.. and I'll update you on what's going on with the warehouse! ATM it looks AWFUL!
Below is the warehouse - I have started work on 'my' part of it.. which is the office t o the left.. and the empty space to the right of it. It's a mess.. but we'll get there!
Just coz I can... a ringtail possum residing in my ceiling! GRRRR
A pier shot I took on the way to work one morning :)
I still have not got my workshop up and running - it's doing my head in! Seriously!! All I want to do is finish my projects and get new ones up and running.. ugh - we've been here 8mths!! Anyway.. to pass the time, I'm still doing my photography course - in fact almost finished! YAY! That WILL help with taking pics of my work - whenever I finally get back into it! (GRR)
A fellow tog student posted this on his timeline on FB - thought I'd share it here - this guy's work is amazing!! Check it out!
Hi :) I'm still here!! A tad annoyed because I still don't have access to my you-beaut workshop! It's still full of my sons stuff :( It'll be going soon and THEN I will be getting MY things unpacked.. and getting back into mini-ing!! In the meantime though - I have been doing a little 'macro' photography. This little guy was no bigger than 5mm across.. and to the naked eye looked smooth and almost wet!! What's with the HAIR? LOL Oh he was fun!! :)
