Ack, so many projects that I think I am overwhelming myself!
The apartment is done, even though it takes daily work to keep it that way! While I haven’t accomplished all the sorting out in the sewing room as I wanted to, I will be doing it as I go. I like that I have drawers close to Evie’s room and the other 2 rooms, I will give them each a drawer for their clothes and shoes (two for Evie’s massive collection) and store all the SD stuff in a box. Still not ready to deal with that yet, or the little ones. Quiet honestly, I don’t have the room for them to have rooms. Sigh. I have the shelf that goes around the top of the sewing room that I want to do something with…..we’ll see what I come up with.
I have yet to start on Charlotte’s wedding dress. I am ready to do that now, so today I will look through my stuff for appropriate fabric and trim. One of the finds I recently had at the thrift shop was Doll Reader and a few other brands of doll magazines from the 1980’s and 90’s. I sat down and flipped through them all and chose about 20 of them! They were .99 each, so I had to be choosy. Lots of them had patterns in them, two for wedding dresses for China’s! What luck!
Evie’s room is still bugging me. I thought last night that maybe a soft yellow and sky blue would be a nice colour combination. I also thought that maybe if I bought yellow, red, white and blue enamel paint, I could mix my own colours and be able to coordinate the rug in with the trunk and furniture. It sure would be a colourful room! I’ll have to go to the paint shop and see if I can get small cans of the paint, otherwise it would be too much. I may just get some colour samples to bring home and see what works with the rug.
Yesterday I finally got hooked up to our new printer and printed out some paper doll sets for Evie, made her a passport and even a shot record, birth certificate and a report card. Her papers are all in order now. lol. Actually I found blanks online and filled in her name. I have Ollie’s and Charlottes marriage certificate ready too. That was a lot of fun to play with. I also can now scan in so many of the patterns I have drawn up myself so I can use them again and again. See what I means….so many projects to get done!
