It ain't about the Money!


Good Morning Guys,

I have been busy this week going to hospital (you have to say it the way the brits do because Dr who is coming on ..woo hoo.)not for myself but for family...so I haven't gotten a lot done....I haven't been working on a lot but I made some shelves and some pans for the sink..I still have to make a radio (thanks to Kris for this great tutorial) and get some lights





 then I went to walmart because Richs Birthday is coming up and I got him a tablet but he needed a case and I found..this






I now have all the wood in the world....I also have a head full of crazy..entering this contest wasn't about the money ..I just want to make the world sing  or in this case make Mini's !  but I do have to worry about the price tag..such is life

so have a great weekend..Happy Easter Ya'll

Love
Marisa :)

  4. Hi Marisa, several pieces of my mini-furniture are also constructed out of wooden sticks, in combination with cardboard. I wish you lots of fun with your bags of wood and I am looking forward to your creations. By the way; the pans you made are looking great!

  5. Great finds... now you have a pretty good supply of wood in practical dimensions. I'm curious what you'll do with it. - Best wishes for anyone of your dear ones that is in hospital.

    Greetings

  8. Dr Who and mini making. The perfect combination.

  9. I still miss that Dr. Who that was a couple of seasons ago. His facial features kind of made him look like a rodent, and his assistant's name was Rose. I was really sad when Rose left, even though friends have argued that other assistants that came after her were better and other Dr. Who's were better. Whatever! I'm sure you will make magic with your wood.

    1. I remember the companions before Rose, though I did like Sara Jane my favorite was Tegan, I wanted to be just like her...she's the only companion I know that got really messed up by the doctor.

      and David Tennant does not look like a rodent he's quite handsome or at least he was until he regenerated...the new guy doesn't do it for me and I hated pond and rory..so glad their gone! (maybe I should make a tardis)
