Fascination Station – The Best Laid Plans

Sigh. I did not make the deadline for the Creatin’ Contest. This does not surprise me in the least. I started way late and have a terrible time with deadlines.

Maybe, I’m just not the contest kind. I tried before with the Spring Fling 2010 and never got that finished either. After all the commentary about a Meth House contest winner (which I personally thought was pretty original), I think my entry would not have been approved either. I had a notion of doing a 1970’s head shop complete with tie-dyed t-shirts, posters, records, and -gasp – bongs and rolling papers. My sense of nostalgia is pretty warped, I guess. <grin>

At any rate, I did finish most of the exterior.

And after some electrical troubleshooting (am I the only one who has discovered the tested electrical is no longer working AFTER the wallpaper is up?), I will finish up the interior (this time!). Maybe in time for the I’m A Giant Challenge deadline?

By the way, super thanks to Pepper at Mitchy Moo Miniatures for the super tutorial on the Mod Fire. I just had to try this out and made one in card stock for my rooftop sitting area.

Happy Holidays!

    Wow Sandra. I’m chuffed to bits that you made the Mod Fire with card stock. You’ve proved that making fab mini’s doesn’t require welding gear and a degree in metallurgy. It looks wonderful. Well done you.

    BTW where did you get that sweet white Christmas tree? I have a soft spot for all things monochrome =0)

    Well, thank you for the excellent template! You are a crafting master, but your tutorials make things doable for the rest of us!

    The white tree and silver ornaments are from miniatures.com. I originally got it for a Halloween tree, but found it to be a good fit for my black and white interior scheme – if I EVER get it finished.

    Ah man, I’m bummed to hear about your electrical issues. So sorry for you, that is such a nightmare. I have avoided electrical for that reason. I hope it isn’t too much work. The exterior looks great!! I’m looking forward to seeing interior shots. Keep up the great work. Your mod fire is awesome. Pepper rocks!
