One common complaint of motherhood is that you are never left alone: can't even use the bathroom without a kid knocking on the door needing something. So my hobby is no different! I started to chip out the Leaky Cauldron pub floor and it attracted the attention of my girls.
Luckily two of my girls are old enough now to actually help! I was not surprised by my eldest offering to help me; she likes to help with everything I do, from laundry to miniatures.
It was appropriate that my middle daughter also wanted to help; I was pregnant with her 10 years ago when I took the class and first made the structure. How appropriate then that she help me finish it up! She is not into miniatures, but she is a Harry Potter fan so she was eager to assist. Plus, she is great at deconstruction!
So, slowly but surely, the old plaster floor is getting chipped out!
Welcome to my life . . . .
This is a blog about my passion: dollhouses and miniatures. This particular blog was started to follow my miniature dream: to create a Victorian Mansion. But work on my Mansion is slow. Very slow. Sloth slow. Ice Age glacier movement slow. Why? Because I am easily distracted by other personal miniature projects (I have 50+ roomboxes and 15 dollhouses in various stages of incompletion) and because I work for a miniature shop and am often up to my elbows in miniature projects that aren't mine! So, I thought, some artists work in a particular medium (woods, watercolors, clay, oils, etc.), I work in progress . . . .
