Today (and next Monday) were set aside for my young friend, Tasha to visit and enjoy doing some art for herself. She started a fun project here over two years ago (as seen in lower left corner!) and was every bit as excited still to pick up the project today. When she started this, she looked like a pretty little girl but the young woman who came to visit today is a total knock out! It's a Gigi moment.
She's making a wonderfully creative, model designer house in impeccable, imaginative detail! (A sampling of rooms above) This thing is soooo cute! (I HAVE GOT to hook her up with the masterful model set maker Hila!) She cleverly re-purposes things for the miniature rooms, like a seashell as bathroom sink complete with a flattened grommet drain! Be sure and make out the hand-made red wire coat hanger on the heart-shaped peg in the kid's room, lower right) It's pure delight to watch her "problem solve" to create the things she needs. An old khaki sweater become the second floor's Berber carpet when stapled on a board. Pretty patterned papers become adorable wallpapers when glued on with stickflat glue. She's so into it... her enthusiasm is catching.
IN HALFLANDIAN NEWS: I've continued to work on the Maus Haus, making and adding three ADDITIONAL batches of micro shingles! Yeesh. Planning to plaster the facade and create the garden gate and pathway to the front door in the next few days.
