The Modern Chair Mistake...

I was so excited to make this chair because of the wonderful fabric. I edited a pattern that I normally use, but forgot to trim some of the width off. Normally, the armrest would go on top of the cushion and use up some of that space. After I completed the chair, I realized that something was off, hence the width. So now I have a wonderful wide chair that I cannot use for the Christmas scene....feeling sad.

Mini Christmas Cards...

I'm having so much fun creating mini decorations for my Christmas scene. I found these wonderful cards on the internet. I love the vintage vibe. I added a little message inside to give them a realistic look. They are adorable.

I created a little message in each card

A Few More Christmas Goodies...

Working as quickly as I can on all the little details I want in this scene. Today I spent a lot of time working on the interior of the fireplace and the fireplace screen (still drying). I still have to paint the interior bricks and rust the screen, but I did manage to complete a nice little "JOY" sign.

Here's a peek:

Finished the bricks for the interior of the fireplace. Still need to make it look dirty

Determined to do a Christmas Scene...

I have so many "promise" projects I have to do. What's a promise project? Little minis that have been requested that I have agreed to make. Not necessarily on a time line, but I have to get them done.  Before I start working on them, I want to make a few things for a new scene I'm creating. I've always wanted to make a Christmas scene, but waiting two weeks before Christmas doesn't work. So I'm digging in a little early, so that I can actually get it done before Christmas. I've already created the Christmas trees, fireplace (still have to work on the inside and create the candles), presents and stockings. I have tons of other things to make, but I think I can weed them in as I'm making the "promise" projects.

Here's a few things I have created already.

Cork Boarding...

Spent the morning working on this cork board so that I could use it in the listing for the New York Apartment Sofa. I think it's pretty cool, you might get tired of seeing it in my staging photos. The coffee table in that same photo is something that I want to create to sell in the shop. I love that it can hold tons of accessories. So look for it in the near future.

Here's a close up of the corkboard:

Three Little Chairs...

Just finished the last tester for the dining room chair group that I have been working on for the farm tables I created a while back. I wanted to have a few designs that would give some variety and possibly do a mix-match look. This last one (once painted) will have a cane effect. I may also try to add padding with decorative fabric.
