A Little Bit Of Crafting...

I missed WOYWW this week - I was at the hospital getting measured up for new wrist splints. It's so annoying, having this part of me that stops my body from working the way I want it to... especially now I've extended my hobby needs. I have this urge to make dolls house furniture using the same techniques and materials I use for scrapbooking... but working in 1:24th scale (also known as 'half 'scale because each half an inch represents one foot) just isn't possible for me... it's too fiddly.
I did try though... I wanted to make a little travel chest, but it's ended up being slightly too big for my needs, and slightly too small for what my Mum could use it for (my Mum has a 1:12th scale dolls room). It did look kinda cute though...

The wee mini trunk measures about 4cm across, and is less than 3 cm high - I've shown the two pence piece against it so you can gauge the size. I was so tempted to make a mini album to go inside it... but Bethany wanted it for her bedroom instead, to keep her earrings in :)

That's all I've really had time for - though I have made a few tags for the "Autumn Swirls" album. Tuesday was CallieCats vet appointment, and she sailed through the operation. No more kitties for Callie! She's gained over 6 ounces in just two weeks, and looks amazing! This is Callie today, just one day after her operation...
As for Bella... well, she seems to have found a place to hang out and cause mischief now we've stopped her climbing the Christmas tree...
... and, yes, that IS my craft desk she's sat on *lol*
I really will try and get around to paying visits in blogland... as soon as I have more than ten minutes to spare at a time!

Your little chest is awesome! I couldn't make something as delicate as that, even with two fully functioning wrists! Hope the splints make life more comfortable. xxx

OMGosh - that little trunk is sooo sweet. It's only recently I've twigged that you have mobility issues honey from the odd comment buried in your postings. That makes what you do and make all the more amazing and magical! Hugs, Di xx

I do so hope the splints give you a bit of relief. And I can only echo what the others have said - I know how tiny this beautiful trunk is and I am amazed

Cute little trunk. I'm amazed at the tiny little detail - know I wouldn't have the patience! Hope the wrist splints make you more comfortable.

Callie & Bella are adorable. I can remember when my kitten first discovered the delights of climbing the Christmas tree! We had to ban him from the living room unless we were there :-)
