The Old Brick Fireplace...

Finally finished the (portable) fireplace that I can use for staging.

Used a tea light to add a little flame light. May change it to a LED for a softer look.

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.
