Luckily for MY mail person, I was out on Thursday and couldn't lie in wait. :/
I came back home that night to see my HBS order box looming in the dark. Had my day not been so miserable, I would have been much more excited. I only just got it into the house before I ushered my family and myself to the comforts of our beds.
The next morning, I took the dreaded bills out to the mailbox to send them off. Upon opening it, I find another package! MORE MINIS!!!! Must have come the day before. It is a box full of prizes from Jane or minifanaticus. Yea.
WHAT WAS IN THE BOX, LYSSA?!?!?! (you may be shouting) Hold yer mini horses! I'm getting there!
Earlier this week, I made my first purchases with my winnings from the 19th Annual Creatin' Contest. Nothing TOO awesome, really, mostly building components...trim, door, railings, stairs.. electrical stuff and some fuses, you know. I did get 3 cool things though. :) Plus, I ordered the Charming Cottage. I also got a thing of Walnut Vinyl flooring.... Brae is always going on about these premade sheet things, so I wanted to see what the fuss was about. :D
Soho Rug, Murphy Bed, and the Clear toilet: EEE!!! So fun!
I will show you these, because they are cool. We have all seen building components. Not so exciting.
PS. I made some new books! Have about 35 more to finish, out of the ones I printed. I'm sure I will make more!
Then the package from Jane was CHOCK full of goodies!!! B T dubs, Jane, love your packing method! We should all tape the package in place within the package to keep them from jumbling around! Genius.
A lot of this was out of the kindness of her heart (expect it back, friend) and some of it was for a holiday sway. She is doing this really great build called Holiday Inc, and needs some fun holiday stuff for it. I send her some nifty baskets and Christmas stuff and she sends me Valentines Day goodies. HUZZAH! And now, some pictures!
|Book ends!!!! I LOVE them.|
|Don't they look so good?!|
|Plates and platters. ♥|
|Bread and veggie prep board.|
|LOOK at that onion!!!|
|Seasonal centerpieces. LOVE!|
|BUTTERFLY! er, Spring.|
|Probably my favorite thing to unearth in there. :)|
|Check out my loot!|
And finally, back in the way back, Cyd from Mini Mod Pod sent me this fabulous little nugget:
|I love how versatile mini kits are. Different finish and hardware= totally different desk.|
She had been looking for Artply Highland measurements, and I measured all the parts of mine for her. Mini people are so nice! I seriously have "met" some of the nicest people whilst in this hobby and have made some really great friends. Maybe it's because it's a relatively small circle. Maybe it's because artists are so compassionate. Either way, I think it rocks. I think you rock. I think this hobby rocks. :)
