Scrapbook Paper...Oh the Possibilities!

Oooh... I found a couple more templates that will make great windows.

I was excited to discover I had two sets of papers that I could use for the wall paper. I think I will need to add a baseboard and ceiling trim, but these should work.

Cool. It's fun to see how these (furniture, windows, paper) may all fit to make a couple of nice dioramas for photographing Sofiya and Damaris. Although they are two different scales (Sofiya is 1/3 and Damaris is 1/4), I think I can make it work.

It's all a Game

Let me tell you why I love it when my family purchases new board games. I can't wait to see what templates are left after the pieces have all been punched out. Recently, I have been left with pieces that look! Take a look below.

In the three pieces above, I have added some mylar. I have also begun to add some stained glass paints. I still have lots of work to do, but I think it will look pretty cool.

Here I have put together 9 templates to form 3 long windows with what appear to be many panes. I love to photograph with natural light. I think this will definitely accomplish what I have in mind.

Think Inside the Box

Well, for Christmas (Valentine's, Mother's day, Anniversary, Birthday, Father's day) hubby and I were forced to buy an stove/oven range as our gift to one another. It was one hefty price tag. But, where there's lemons...there's always a possibility of lemonade.

I completely forgot about the box in which the range would be delivered. I went outside to put out some garbage, and there it was. It only took a few minutes for me to have an "Aha!" moment. I had to cut the box along one side and open up the other end to get it into my basement.

So many possibilities.
