long time not posted anything

I posted nothing news for a while. This was caused by illness and because I started something new. Yes, I bought a dollhouse shop and I have been busy in making plans for it and also I practised in miniature knitting and embroidery. And that all takes a lot of time. I never sculpted such tiny dolls. I hope I will succeed.

But I love drawing and painting and sculpting so I am working at sculpting some miniature baby dolls  and I will start an online course by Valery Webb in drawing cats and dogs in the beginning of May. I already did take a course with her and she is such a wonderfull teacher. I hope that doing this course I will get started with my other courses with Leonie Norton and Julie Douglas. It certainly helps that Spring is finally there.
My little garden is already filled with spring flowers and temperatures are rising.

In the coming months I will have a commission in drawing a little white dog in pastel.

Long time ago last post

I had a bit of a "dip" during this winter. Every body I think has such "dips" and the challenge is to get out of it.
So I decided to start another kind of hobby (I have tooo much hobbies) to get my creative blood flowing again..
I became 65 years of age in Januar and I gave myself a present, a new challenge. I bought a socalled roombox. It is not a  complete dollshouse but only one room.

And it is a shop so I can put all my creativiness (does this word excist?) in it.
Sewing, knitting (Oh, yes, sooo tiny for babies 1/12) embroidery, painting, etc.

So since Januar I have been very busy in surfing the net for information and I bought far too much things to start. There are nowadays so many beautiful things to buy. Not the old fashioned things who were available when I was "young" but more modern things. But I like the Romantic, shabby chic style, so it will be a combination of different styles.

I will call my shop "Dreams", because this dollhouse is/was a dream of mine for many years and I will sell all kind of selfmade things in my shop. Like baby stuff en juwelry and really nice things for women. I hope it will become a really Dream shop.

I started a new blog, you can use the tab "dollhouses, miniature" that you will see above this page and I hope to see you there also.
