Exciting things are afoot!

Life seems to take over and every time I have sat down to blog it seems that it has gotten swallowed up in checking on potatoes, making dinner or just learning to stop and chill out.

I find it hard to blog when things aren’t really where I want them. And over the past year it has seemed like it comes in dribs and drabs. The biggest issue was that I didn’t feel like I had much to blog. Previously I had moved and had no internet which was a huge problem for uploading photos and blogging. Then I moved recently and have just been settling in. I am never sure how much of my personal world I want to put up on my blog and I have found that to be quite a barrier.

Over the past few years I feel as though I have really out grown this blog, perhaps I am simply unable to refocus it in a more general way, perhaps some of it is the name. Either way I have made the choice to move over to a new blog which you can find here at Lambeau. I had wanted to stay with WordPress unfortunately the title was taken and secretly I have always wanted a Typepad blog. Win win!

So life, moving, growing vegies, makine new friends, looking for work and the best part.. I GOT A LASER CUTTER! Though I went cheap and have had so many issues with Moshi Draw (turns out using windows xp has solved the current issues of squishing I had) and yesterday I got the first prototypes of my lovely Quater Scale Cat Haus/House (I haven’t decided yet) one of which I am going to give away on my new blog during next week. Here are a few sneak peeks from my excitement yesterday.. This is cut from 3mm Plywood as it was a personal preferance for me over MDF.

Cathouse kits are getting done!  Just a few tweaks here and there and they will be available!

This kit will of course have all the windows accessories and eventually a furniture kit to match the style I imagine it being furnished in. As well as the instructions of course. I also plan to make these in cheaper materials as kids would be able to put these together very easily and I think it is a great size for a holiday project.

I also have plans to do up some Petite Blythe furniture and bits and pieces the first of which is a cute little chair. I plan on mostly doing these in 1:16 size as that seems to be the commonly agreed upon scale for these dolls tho 1:12 is very close.

The excitement is so much I feel as though I am going to burst with all the new excitement that is going on in my world. I am going to be eager to take requests, hear feedback and general to and fro!

So onto new things and don’t forget to head over to the new blog Lambeau soon!

I finally found some internet to  upload these images for my entry into the Undersized Urbanite contest for this year.. Due in a mere 3 weeks I have lots to do. Most of the time was spent planning and designing and waiting for these lovely laser cut parts to arrive. Enjoy the eye candy and there will be plenty more over the next few weeks!
