let's see.. what have I done lately...

haven't got much accomplished.. I've been a bit of a funk, apparently.

I've gotten quite a number of cat paraphernalia accumulated.. still need several things though..

The first thing that I absolutely adore.. found it on ebay, of course!

next thing I made myself..

ahh and I actually found some babies to enjoy it.. 

lets see what else... 

ooh.. stickers that I'll put in as 'artwork' and other various things.

I am doing a tree for the cottage.. it looks like this at the moment.... (not very attractive yet for a tree.)
and I may eventually change my mind about it... lol just depends on how the final project looks.

I have another photo that is unrelated to c.c.l.c (crazy cat lady cottage)... it doesn't even belong in the fairfield, but that's where I put it. :) I made some steampunk art.

Other than that.. nothing has been accomplished on the fairfield..

just another day.. and no mini'ing..

I dislike my work week, have no motivation at all to fiddle with mini'ing. Is that a bad sign? 
I guess responsibilities have to be prioritized, huh?

I've decided to enter the Creatin' Contest.. hosted by ... I'm excited and pretty sure my idea has been over done.. but I'm going to do a crazy cat lady house.. I think the Charming Cottage is perfect for the idea. Honestly though, if I don't get motivated, I doubt I'll make the deadline.. and I know it's  months and months away. lol  But I'm still working on my first dollhouse.. and still have lots to do to it and it's coming up on a year. :p

Speaking of crazy cat ladies.. I took Dev to get fixed on Monday.. 

I had to leave him over night, and that worried me some, but when I picked him up on Tuesday he was absolutely fine.. or acted it.. I know deep down he was angry with me.. haha poor fella'. 
I got two days of pain pills for him, just to be on the safe side. I figured it was going to be a pain getting them down his throat. Boy, was I shocked when I opened the lil' package and stood thinking what I could use to get it into him.. sat it down on the counter and he came over sniffed it, licked it then gobbled it up. That so made my life easy!!! The next day it was almost the same process, he licked it a few times then ate it up. 
Wonder if there's a coating on it that appealed to him.. as he is very picky as to what he eats. 

Here are my two enjoying the crazy cat lady cottage

Jane Smith at MiniFanaticus gave me an award... so I had to pick 5 blogs that I love to read... Well.. since I'm just getting started, do you know how hard is to pick? It helps that the blog has to have less than 200 followers.. I thought that would help narrow down my selection.. I was wrong.. lol I did find 5 that I've been following and without further ado..

Thank you sooo much Jane Smith!!

just some pictures of the fairfield.

haven't had much time to do anything mini lately, so I took some updated pics of the fairfield.

I have the roof and trim work to finish.. also have to do something with the chimney. There's also something needed for the foundation part... It's a bit hard for me, as I keep thinking of different things that I'd like to do but being the Libra that I am, I can't make decisions. lol

the pink room is the dining room... and of course I get lots of criticism on it cuz dining rooms aren't normally pink... but hey, it's my dollhouse. lol  I still need something on the fireplace... 

This other pink room is the 'master' bedroom.. 

the black room is the 2nd bedroom.

hallway, bathroom and kitchen.

living room.

the tower, that has no access.. but decorated it some anyways.

the fire place in the 'master'

so this is my funky Fairfield :)

a lil bit of this and that..

Sooo here it is April 7th, and I really have nothing new to blog about.
How disappointing am I?  haha

I have been looking all over the internet for dolls.. and ordered one.. she showed up on Friday and I just love her. Though right now, I don't have a house for her... but eventually down the road I will. She hasn't told me her name yet.. Maybe in a few days she will if I leave her out of the box. ;)

I previously ordered a doll on February 28th and it still hasn't gotten here. She was coming from Northamptonshire, I still excitedly check the mail, in hopes it shows up.

One of the gals I work with is a frog lover, and her birthday is Monday... so a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISH TO BRANDY!!! 

This is what I gave her over the weekend. Isn't he adorable?! (Credit goes to Jason, as he made the lil dude)

Hopefully I'll have some mini'ing news soon, I'm worn out. My work week is kicking my ass. 

Hope all is well in MiniLand. =)

Easter bunny pulled through!!

I got my polymer clay from the Easter bunny.. so Jason and I played a bit with it.. I think it's going to take me a long time to get the hang of this.. =>

Those are some bowls and a kitty I made.. the orange one is suppose to have milk in it.. hence the white part.

A little jar of some sort, with a lid that I made as well.

These bowls of food and cats, Jason did. I still think he's more talented. ;)

The frog, Jason did too!! I LOVE him.. he's not for the dollhouses though.

Lastly I made this cat scratching/toy .. (not out of clay) I think it turned out well.

I received my cottage yesterday, unfortunately I got two of the right sides, so I'll have to wait for the replacement side. In this situation.. should I send back the other piece? I really don't want a collection of extra pieces hanging around, when possibly someone could use the part I have..

I'm still working on the Fairfield, doing a lot of painting.. I'm debating on the porch roof. I thought of just putting up some railing or something as the roof doesn't look all that great to me.. kinda plain. I'll come up with something eventually.  *smirk*

Well that's all I have for now..

Enjoy your day!
