Yo! How was your weekend? Mine went super fast. Why can’t two work days go that fast? Anyway, it was my turn to pick Saturday’s word for the game “Saturday Scavenger Shots”, so I picked “craft”. The word didn’t just come to me out of the blue. Since visiting a craft store in Arizona, I made up my mind to buy a dollhouse kit and build a dollhouse.
According to the directions, I should build a few parts of the dollhouse first before assembling the entire thing. I made the steps first.
Then, after re-reading the directions for the chimney and then searching for a missing piece that had fallen off the couch and bounced, I finished the chimney. An idea popped into my head, though, to make it look like the chimney had bricks. I broke up a few clay pots and then broke the pieces down so that I could glue them to the sides. That was a fun project and kind of relaxing. I watched movies while I glued down each piece. I liked painting it afterwards.
Finally and about an hour ago, I found out how to build the bay window frame. Those directions weren’t perfectly clear in the instructions, so I had to refer to the company’s website for more guidance. It all hit me to the point where I said “Ah HA!” I assumed that all the pieces I needed were located in the same box. It would make sense, really. Alas, the crucial pieces were in another chunk of parts. Once I found them, I taped everything together until I could build the house and finish assembling everything. Here’s part of the bay window. It’s not pretty, but it looks like what the directions show. It just needs to be glued and connected to the rest of the house once the house is assembled.
Here are some craft supplies:
Finally, here is the craft store I love to visit. I could spend hours there.
Well now it’s my turn to pick a new word chooser, so I’ll pick Laura from “What Fresh Hell is This”! What say you, Laura?
