Working a weird schedule has it perks, too. The "off time" I get can mean many days laced together with guilt free mini play time. And, if I do a really great job, it also means bonuses! You know what that means? A nice little vacation for the hubs and me to escape into the great wilderness exploring in utter peace and solitude. And... New Minis and Toys!!!
Because I was a very good little worker bee this last round, here are my rewards:
|New Brother Sewing Machine - Yes, I will re-teach myself so that I can make perfect little pillows! And other important stuff, too...|
|A Little Clover Iron So That I Don't Have To Drag Out The Big Clunky One Anymore!|
Thank you for your order of the Brimble Mercantile Kit. The order has been
processed and the Kit will go out to you UPS. I will email you a
tracking # as soon as I get it. I hope you enjoy putting you kit together.
It was so much fun to do.
If there is anything else you need in the future, just email me as not
everything we CAN get is on the website.
Best Mini Wishes,
A Touch of the Past
I'll remember the kindness and great service and continue to shop there in the future!
I ordered some items from my own Shapeways store. I just love my big double sink (used in Alki Point) and I love that I can order the faucet in Polished Nickel for about $12.00. So much better than trying to paint it! I also have not had the chance to use a couple of the lamp designs yet, so the Beach Bungalow will make the perfect opportunity!
Elf Miniatures. I ordered the Easy Oven Front kit because I had success using it on Alki Point:
Then I chose the Dummy American Fridge/freezer kit (I hope our British friends just mean "dummy american" as in 'for looks only', LOL!)
I'll be making a Chrysnbon bathroom kit but I thought a purdier faucet would make a nice touch, so I ordered the traditional mixer tap in silver. It's soooo purdy!
Of course I got a few extra accessories but the Deal Of The Day was this:
I know - it's hideous, right! But I see ripping off the ugly fabric and ruffles and having the foundation for some really contemporary tush tuffits! And, do you know what I paid for them? Ten Bucks!!! I love a good (cheap) rehab (just ask the previous six fixer upper homes we had before we bought the "finished" one. Finished... Yeah right...
So I totally got to spoil myself, including ordering some basic restock and fun items from HBS! The Fourth-Of-July Sale started today and you save 20%! I't free minis and a no brainer, so go get you some goodies today!
And, in case you were at all curious, I have been diligently working on the Creatin' Contest build. I am at a stage where many things are in phases of completion, so until it all gels and I actually have some good eye candy, I'll save the progress post for later!
Hugs to all and I hope you get to celebrate more than just independance! Do something nice for yourself and then let your gratitude infect everyone!
