Traveling Case: A Work Progress at Work

I've been manufacturing this little travel case entirely at work... inside my cubicle. Hee hee


 All open! The drawer is lined with gold paper. Fancy shmancy.

 I added a bar, so the stuff wouldn't fall out.

 It's pretty teeny. Only 1 3/4 inches tall.

New Projects

I have hopped back on the mini wagon with a ferociousness.

I am currently in the process of making a steamer trunk and an apothecary traveling case.

These pictures are in different stages of the process.

And this is the very beginning of my apothecary traveling case.

It'll end up getting structured something like this. Except I plan to tweak the inside compartments.

Month Sans Roo

I've been seriously absent from my tiny world. My son Roo went for a month to my parents house in Massachusetts to go to camp and frolic with his overindulgent Nana and Poppy while I slave away at work. :)

He loves it, and it gives me a nice break from single parenting. Time to recoup!

So while he was away I didn't work on my minis at all.

I went to Vegas with my friends, beach partied, acted like what I feel a normal person of my age does when they aren't a mother to a  young child. It felt good, but BOY did I miss him. <3

Me dressed up for various venues. 

I flew home to MA to pick him up and took some pics of my mom's dollhouse. Anyone know if it's a kit or handmade?

We went to a dollhouse store that's in the area and my mom bought me some little things I wanted. She's the best! She also bought HERSELF a mini music stand (she's a concert pianist and plays many other instruments) and a little shelf thingie to put her mini food and dishes on. I think she's getting back into because of me. She said she might want to set up her dollhouse inside so it's not all bare (see pics below) with all her minis in a shoebox. Haha

I also won this awesome piece on Ebay. I plan n using it for Dumbledore's memory cabinet. It's so lovely and magical looking.

Now that my Rooey is back, I plan to get back on the mini making proverbial ball!
