beach balls

Last night while I was watching Grey's Anatomy I painted some white Styrofoam balls to make them look like beach balls.

dollar store find and surf shop

A few weeks ago I was in my local dollar store and came across some neat beads that were in the shapes of animals that resembled stuffies and dolls, sweets, pairs of shoes. I thought the toy looking ones would work in the toy shop and the little shoes would look cute in a baby room or in a cute shoe box on a shelf.

In my miniature magazine I came across instructions to make a surf or beach shack. So I decided I would make one to place in a beach scene. I am making the little shack as a surf shop that would sell some beach items. Last year I participated in a beach swap so I have a few items already. This little project is a long way from being done but it is a good start.

Where the door way is I made a beaded curtain. the magazine even came with the printable cut outs for the front and side. (light house and sail boats).

I'm back online

Well if you are wondering where I was. I was without the internet for 3 long weeks. Our modem died and the company took forever to send us a new box. So while I was away from the computer a freind of mine send me some plastic canvas dollhouse furniture for Ethan. So that is what I have been up too. some of the pieces I designed myself like the washer and dryer, dish washer, microwave and bunkbeds.
He loves them all, and sadly I am not finished. I need to make another set of bunkbeds, another dresser, highchairs, pram, etc.
Here are some pictures of what I have made so far.
