Mother Nature, you're a bitter old lady!
I spent all day Monday house cleaning in preparation for the holiday. (it's the only time I clean. lol) In defense of that statement, i had a friend who told me, "a clean house is the sign of a dull woman." So put away the dust pan and go do what you want! (* - that's my seal of approval). ha
Today I spent most of the day making templates and cutting wood. I made a template for extra wide chimney, heart-shaped front window, weepeep door (1/2 scale), weepeep window (1/2 scale). All these templates had to be traced onto wood and cut out with my scroll saw.
Who or what is Weepeep? The Weepeep are magical little people just like you and me. They have a bit of magic (not alot) and are about 1/2 scale. Weepeep is what they like to be called, roughly translated, it means Wee People. he-he
This is why Mama Helley's cottage is enchanted. And you can find out all about it in my next book!
'Mama Helley's Enchanted Cottage' will include a fictional short story, a non-fiction journey to the Emerald Isle, and a build pictorial in 1" scale (and 1/2" scale).
