Back on Etsy with mini's!!!

I just listed a bunch of miniature paintings, furniture and art supplies.  Get 'em while they are hot with their all new low, low, low prices.  :)

The art supplies are a limited time buy at this price.  Next month, they will be put back into the Ageless Promise Art Gallery and I will be listing it as a whole.

Hope to see some sales quick!  :)  Just click the etsy link to the right of the screen to go check it out or follow this link here.

Listing On Etsy

I just wanted to give you all a heads up that I listed some paintings on one of my etsy shops:  Lyssa Wyn Creations.  

I should get some things listed in the mini shop: Lyssa's Budget Mini's, later this week.

With all the hooplah from the holidays, the wedding and now the honeymoon, over, I can get back into the crafting saddle!  Woot!

Coming together, Country shabby

Before the new year, I had made a kitchen counter out of card stock and foam core board.  I had mentioned to you all that I was going to paint it a country blue, with white counter top.  Here is the end result before I made the sink:

It still needs a curtain for the shelving, but I have yet to find a print
that I both like and is in scale.  Something flowery...or with butterflies.
The handles are from Houseworks, but the oven pull is built from scratch.
Efficiency stove top!
Quick placement and glance through the window.

The next step was to make the sink and get some hardware for it.  Who knew that I would have a faucet jangling around in my drawer of mini things...  I had made some shelving to go into the kitchen, too, but one was a little tall.  The shelving behind the sink is what I cut off.  It is just big enough to be a supply shelf there.  :)  I will probably cut the ends down though and round them off.
It came together so wonderfully!
Close up of the not perfect sink.  It cracked upon installation, but I used
Brae's perfect-mitre technique to fix the issues.  

And now, everything is in there!  Hoorah!  Accessories have been added and there is still more to come.  I want this kitchen to be full. Overcrowded.  Homey.  

I think it's off to a pretty good start.  :D
