YouTube Tuesday: Bentley House Minis

Ara is the creative spirit behind this channel, and she’s Amazing!! She makes lots of stuff, and I couldn’t decide on just one video so, I am linking to a playlist. This playlist is about a dollhouse in 1:12 scale that is made out of cardboard! Ara also made furniture for the dollhouse out of cardboard, and she was nice enough to share all of the blueprints and patterns for this project.

I am definitely going to try something like this when I’m done with my book end project!

Be sure to Subscribe to Ara’s channel as well as Like/Dislike and comment!! Feedback is always welcome, good or bad!

Personally, I think you’ll like her channel. She’s easy to listen to, explains things very well and goes slow when she’s demonstrating so following along is a breeze.

Don’t take my word for it, go check her out!

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!

Raffle is at Halfway!

This means you only have one week left before the raffle is done, and the winner is both chosen and announced!! For those of you who are new here, I am holding a raffle to help me pay off Mimi’s vet bills. She is recovering from a severe bout of bronchitis. I am having trouble paying the bills for her so, we’re trying to raise funds by holding a raffle.

So, what are we raffling off?? It’s a handmade crocheted accent/throw pillow in bright colors:

This lovely can be machine washed, but if you have an agitator(as most people still do), it’s best to put inside a pillow case or a lingerie bag so the fringe doesn’t get caught. It can also be dried in the dryer. It won’t shrink, fade or bleed on your clothes! The yarn is mostly acrylic, but it’s still very soft.

Tickets are 50 cents American, and if you want to be less than $5 American, you can use the custom button below to buy less. I haven’t figured out how to change things on the donation form yet so please, forgive me this time!

Cute Vanity Tray – Project #6

I have realized I don’t take very good photos. Please forgive me as this isn’t really a field that holds much interest for me except for sharing. I’ll try to do better.

This little tray is something I made myself without a pattern. It turned out better than expected even though it was off the cuff. I made it using Red Heart Super Saver yarn in white and some cardboard I cut to size and covered with some fabric remnants I had leftover after lining a purse I made some time ago.

I hope you enjoy this! I know it’s made a welcome addition to my bathroom!

Newest Etsy Addition

Below is my newest addition to my Etsy shop.  It’s a stroller blanket. 🙂  I am working on a second large project even after I told myself I wouldn’t do another after finishing the peacock.  Still, the new project is proving to be fun to make so I’ll continue with it.

Please, visit my shop and tell your friends about it too.  I do take some commissions so it doesn’t hurt to ask, either here or at the shop.  I’m using the money to save up for a car so I can move out of the motel I’m currently living in and get into a place more secure.  I also can’t have my furbaby Oliver with me, and I miss her a lot!

The shop’s name is Griffin’s Market.  Yes, I realize it’s not a terribly creative name, but I wasn’t looking for creative when I started the shop.  My wares are my creation.

With that I bid you all adieu.  I’ll catch you on the flipside and as always, don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!

Griffin’s Market

Griffin’s Market is the name of my Etsy shop.  I know it’s not too original, but it gets the job done.

I have four items already listed on there – including my just finished peacock project.  I will be listing more items as I get pictures made and get projects done.

I take some commissions as well so don’t hesitate to ask.

As Promised – Peacock Project

I actually finished this project several days ago, but I had so much other stuff going on I didn’t have time to sit down to write a post until now.

This piece was originally supposed to be for an accent pillow.  I found the pattern in a vintage pattern book circa 1915 – The Priscilla Filet Crochet Book No. 2 in fact.  The pattern called for size 300 thread which I had no clue about so, I used what I had.  The piece is now 47 inches wide by 55 inches tall.  I am selling it on Etsy too –

If the above link doesn’t work, please let me know.  So far, it’s working.

That’s it for now folks, more to come, so see you on the flipside.  Enjoy and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!
