Smell the Lemons...

“When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.”  That being the case, I can make lemonade, lemon cake, and lemon pie. I recently had a birthday, (Yay me!!), started a new workout regimen, and started juicing. I feel great! So yeah, I have been busy.

Anyway, I am overjoyed because I have some new followers. I have been writing this blog thinking that no one would be interested and I was wrong. I would like to think all of you for commenting and supporting my efforts as a new blogger and hobby miniaturist. I am still working on the add followers button.  Google Friend Connect is no longer offered.  At this point I will take all suggestions. Mini Dork of Modern Mini Houses instructions were very helpful, thank you.  Also, I was excited to see my “little” blog mentioned in her recent post. Awesome!! 

I would like to mention that Lyssa of Can't Have It Big? Make Mine Mini! wrote this post and it hit home. I was like…that’s me. I read so many awesome posts and see so much talented work. I am at awe of the natural skill and ability…and the things people are able to create.  I often think to myself…”I ‘m not that good.” Her post reminded me that I am better than I was a year ago when I first started. And a year from now I will be better.  I will keep at it!!!

Now on to the Build-Along project. The exterior is complete with some minor finishing touches. I am working on the interior. Not much to show yet but I will share a couple things I am working on:

 This is the making of a spa bed from a place mat.
 This is a counter for the spa.

 I covered the exterior with contact paper. I don't really like it much. I may change it.


  1. Happy (belated) birthday...? I don't know your name ;)! I hpe you had a wonderful day with family and friends and lots of presents....
    Your spa is going to be fantastic. Making the spa bed of a place mat is a lovely idea and the counter looks great.
    I wish you a nice weekend!

  2. Great work on this counter! I think the paper looks exactly like the spa/ healthclub counters.

    Each year we practice our little hobby we get better and even still... most of us perfectionists doubt our abilities, just keep at it and believe in yourself and listen to your new encouraging blog friends, for there are some amazing people out here behind these screens ;)

  3. I like the contact paper for the counter. I love how you made the curved part! Nice job!
