The Christmas Cottage....


Today, I sent my mother a Christmas card with this picture on it.  If you don't recognize it, it is one of Thomas Kincade's Christmas cottages.  I absolutely fell in love with it when I saw this card. 

I want it.....in miniature of course.   So I decided that I am going to make one.  Or one similar to this.  I have, for a long while now, planned on a Toy Shop (or something like that) and I think this would be a lovely Elves Workshop.  I just love the big leaded window..the stone work..the timbers.  Beautiful.

Anyway...I am going to do it.

Right after I finish my sister's Christmas present....and Prof. Pymm's Study....and the crazy inventor's lab (yet to be named)...and the Ruins of Camelot...

And do a blog post about LEDs....and an "Ask Tabitha" post about several things people have brought up..

And then there's the 200 followers give-away post....and the one about the lighted cabinet....

Mmmmm.....I am really going to have to get a girl in here to do all my other work so I can just concentrate on mini's.

Fat chance....

But before I do anything else, I really must get the ornaments on my tree.  I should have done that yesterday but I spent the day "sanitizing" my hubby's office.  He rarely allows anyone in there to tidy up never mind vacuum or dust so I had to strike while I could.  Today I was taken up with laundry and God's knows what else...the day just flew by.

Tomorrow doesn't look too good either...sigh....

I'll keep you posted.

PS:  Just the other day, I was referred to as a "scrappy renegade" so I guess I can add that title to the list....

WOW! Whadda list you have! LOL I think you might need a couple of more life times to finish all that.

That cottage photo will make a GREAT miniature house/toy shop. It will be great fun...I hope you can find time to get to make it. :-)

If I could I would send you some more hours for your day - not for being generous, no, just for selfish reasons because I would like to see all those interesteing projects finished... ;O) Building a toy shop with this gorgeous painting in mind sounds like a very exciting project, hope you'll have time to start soon!

What a beautiful card, I can see it as an Elves Workshop. Would be great to have someone take care of house work, laundry and cooking so we could get our projects done. Scrappy renegade hee hee hahaha. Hope you get some me time soon.
