I was going to color my hair but...

I decided to make this little Diorama instead,


Hi Guys 

I found this little Cheez - it Nascar at the thrift store ..the back wheels are missing so I'd been sitting on it for a while until I was looking online and found out that they do burn outs on the track. that was all the inspiration I needed to mock this up the poles for the fence are drinking straws, the fence is from an onion bag, the concrete barrier is cardboard and computer paper. 

I got the idea of distressing it from Elizabeth who did a stairway in her dollhouse, it's really easy to do and the paper in the fence is just glue that I let dry and paint white. you see that if you go to a real nascar race.   


 so this is what it looks like at the store, Rich has a booth full of nothing but car,truck, spaceship models so this will fit right in.
 not to leave you hanging but this is the G.I Joe Barracks that Im making for my Joes, on youtube there is a tutorial on my froggystuff that shows how to make it out of cereal boxes which works for me..I need to display it on the store shelf and I dont have a lot of space.


so that's it for now..I'll show you how the barracks turn out..I work 6 days a week so it may be a while


Merry Christmas if I dont see you

Love
Marisa

    1. she's getting fat because we don't exercise anymore, the vet warned me about letting her run around or getting too excited because the worms are dying and moving around her body so we are taking it slow for the next 30 days she goes back for another overnight Dec 20th. please keep her in your prayers I love that little dog.

  3. This is the smartest and most brilliant way to hide missing wheels ever!!! *LOL* A great solution... and I really admire your fence. Yes, the paper bits add so much realism! Fingers crossed for a stress free Christmas season for you with still enough time to be creative.

    1. thank you, I knew it I kept it around something would pop up, now I can finish up my cereal box room for G.I. Joe, I just need to make a bunk bed and a trunk...I may just change it to a single bed..I've gotta work on it when I go home tonight I spend so much time cuddling with Lilly that I don't get things done like I should..merry Christmas to you

  4. This car cracks me up--I love Cheez-Its! Also love the way your fence turned out, it looks very realistic.
