And well..Here's Otis sleeping with his head down........don't understand how that's comfortable, but OK?And Ms. Pocus found the banana basket.....See her foot sticking out, too funny!!!And here's Otis and Daddy taking a nap. Poor Otis, Daddy is hogging the couch, you see how Otis has his feet...he's pushing on the couch so Daddy doesn't get any more space.....Hahahaha!

We found JD sleeping in the most unusual place last night....in the fruit basket, Yup, right on top of the bananas! Funny thing is, is that he was still in that basket this morning....Must of been comfy, I guess?!?!
Pocus says hello.......One of the things I really like about photographing her is all her colors really pop out! She really is a pretty kitty, now if I could just keep her from dragging things out of the trash!And then we have Mr. Otis....He's just a little Spoiled, huh??? Otis has been spending his days in the new bathroom, He loves playing in the tub, and has managed to already tear apart my new shower curtain....Poor shower curtain, it never stood a chance!! (But in his defense, it was just a cheap, inexpensive, plastic, shower curtain!)
OK, well I better get a move on these Christmas gifts! I will try to squeeze a mini or 2 in in the next couple of days........You do realize that it's only a week till Christmas, Yikes!!

As for minis.....I started these a couple of nights ago. Drew up my own patterns on some drafting paper, and traced them onto Christmas scrapbook paper. I managed to get them glued together yesterday......and finished decorating them this morning.
Ok, guess I'm off to figure out what's up with the computer. Wish me luck!!!

Ok, back to painting the wheels....Just waiting for my green ones to dry so I can glue them in.
Spent some more time working on the skate shop yesterday. I got the designer wheels glued into the cabinet. I glued them onto a piece of clear plastic~ I knew I wasn't going to be able to glue them directly into the cabinet~ they would of never lined of perfectly.....And this way, I can just slide the whole thing in at once. And I got the display for the grip tape made. I just used scrap booking paper, made a bunch of boxes with one end open, and then glued them together. I think I might cover it with cut outs from one of my son's skate magazines......it's just too plain....
Alright, Let's go see what I can get into today?!

The white box at the end is a template for something to hold the grip tape........that's today's project: making a display........hummmmm? Where's the cardboard??

~ There's shingles for Katie's Corner
~ There's a cabinet for the Skate Shop
~ The mirror in the upper right corner will go in the parent's bedroom in Cora's House.
~I finally ordered the right set of books for the bf......It's the Wizardry school book set!~The bathroom for Cora's House....- Check out finish on the bathroom set. Not at all what I expected, but I really like it!!~There was this year's 2008 Christmas plate. This is my Christmas collection......Don't laugh, One day I'll have more.......One day I'd like to make a mini Christmas Kitchen!! I'd love to have a gingerbread scene......I'll never forget the first Gingerbread house my Mom and I made. We'll just say she broke out the glue gun before it was all over with!! LMAO!!! Such good memories:)And last but Not least......HBS (Hobby Builders Supply) sent me the most beautiful set of Christmas cards!! They are of mini Christmas scenes......9 in all! I'm sorry the picture is so crappy, the flash washed out most of it, so I had to crop it down to one side. I have NO clue why when your on my page you can't make the pictures bigger? Anyone have a clue as to what I may have done???I guess now that this stuff has arrived I have no more excuses as to why I haven't finished anything?? LOL.......Dang on blog world......You'll have corrupted me so bad, my one little house has turned into a whole village of houses!!! And just think I still have 3 roomboxes to make (after I finish the ones I have already started) before I can start any kind of new projects! Shhs!!! Hahahahaha!!!!

OK, so the other night I was trying to make a few trays to set the nail polish stuff on. I have these little circle mirrors I use for perfume trays, and thought they'd also make a cute tray for this....Then out of the corner of my eye, I spotted one of the bf's bottle caps and thought....I betcha this little mirror would fit perfectly inside......So I gesso-ed, painted and then glossed the bottle caps.See....it works! And it's cute!! I even added some nail stuff to one of my pink platters to go in Katie's Corner......We're going to have some happy dolls around here!!! LOL!I even made some canisters.....It's crazy the amount of dollhouse things you can make out of beads!!I saw this picture in one of my dollhouse books, that had a silver cougar next to a chair. I really liked how it looked like a statue...so when I was at the Dollar General the other day, I picked up a bag of animals. I have to say, these poor fellas are not that cute! Just look at that lion...what in the world is up with his mouth?? Either way, when I get a chance, I'm going to take them outside and spray them silver!! We shall see what comes of them later!
Ok, well I'm off to find something productive to do today, Wish me luck!!! LOL!! See ya next time!

THEN, after I got done, I went into the kitchen to rinse out my brush and wash my hands....Now, as I'm washing my hands I realized that this paint isn't going anywhere, and in fact...my hands are completely white now....and so is the sink!! UGGG! I knew this would happen....that's why I asked the guy what I asked the guy!! So, here I am covered in white paint, and pissed!! I was at the point where I was going to let my hands dry, and then drive to that local home improvement store and let them know I meant business!!! Good thing the bf was in a lot better mood then I, and he suggested that he go and get some paint remover.
*Lesson 2.........when the bf comes home with Acetone, because that's all he can find, don't let him tell you to just fill up a plastic fast food cup with acetone, so you can soak the paint brush in it......Yeah....it will eat the cup and leak all down you kitchen cabinets......And it will eat the paint right off your cabinets a lot better than it gets the paint off your hands!!!
It has been such a long weekend!! I'm so ready for a hot bath in my new tub!!! Tomorrow I will get back to minis! I had another a-duh moment the other night I want to share with ya! Until then......
