I'm here again!

I know I don't do this often enough, but I have been so busy, what with term starting again, I've hada few orders to start & I have a cold, so don't feel great! I think my youngest daughter has been playing on the "pooter" too much as well, as today, walking home she asked me to use the arrow keys to move her forward & the space bar to make her jump...& I had to do it to get her to go any further!!!

I was really pleased with my latest creation, I kept waving it under Mr H's nose while he was watching stargate, I was so excited...& what was the purpose of this interruption...12th scale pickled onions of course!!!

I'm bursting with inspiration at the moment, I want to make...miniature harvest baskets, busy tables, christmas fireplaces, christmas tables...& loads more, got to get rid of this cold thought it is really holding me back, I just want to sleep, might just grit my teeth today & get through the cleaning, so I can have a couple of claying days to get my orders finished then get on wwith the fun stuff! (by then thought the cleaning will want doing all over again!)

Todays happy thought; cleaning the house while the children are growing, is like shovelling snow while it is still snowing

The Pampered Chef

The week before last I hosted a Pampered chef party at home, I stressed about it ( I used to do party plan, & it's a nightmare trying to get people to come) I worried that if everyone invited did come, they wouldn't all fit in the living room, I worried that the children wouldn't be able to sleep, as we are used to a quiet home of an evening, basically I worried about everything!

but it was great, enough people came, everyone fitted & seemed to enjoy it!

A week later, I attended a meeting with my friend, who has become a consultant for Pampered chef after my party, as I was interested in becoming one myself, in the (distant) future. I found that they are all a lovely bunch of people who all love their job & have a fun at the same time!

I thought that our little friends in the dolls house should join in the fun too!

Todays happy thought: Housework never killed anyone, but why take the risk?

Busy kitchen miniatures

I have been baking again, both real & for the dolls house, I recreated all the ingredients from my cookies & victoria sponge recipes, & this is what I created! I loved it, I put it on Etsy & have sold 2 already! I'm going to try out more recipes, Christmas ones especially!
