Another episode of #forgedinfire another miniature knife.  I'm digging this new ritual!

I'm making more mini knives!  The biggest one was my first attempt.  It has a full blade with tang, then the handle is made of clay.  The other two are made out of one piece of wood.

Free wall art from a LIFE WTR bottle label.  I used precut craft wood as the canvas, but anything thick would work as the canvas.  I painted the  front of the wood white and the sides black.  You can either wait for the paint to dry and use glue to attach the label or place the label while the paint is wet--but to do it while it's wet, I'd recommend cutting the label to size beforehand.

There are so many in this group who have debilitating diseases, me included.  Please know, I am here for you.  Earlier this year my MS attacked my ability to control certain parts of my body.  This is a video of me practicing my hand grasping skills.  I hope if you are in a spot where your physical needs get you down, that deep down in your heart that you won't give up.  I am here for you, others are here for you.  I have since recovered my control, but it was tons of work because I refused to give up. Please, please don't give up.  I'm here to help! I came up with super simple crafts that let me feel productive and less sad, so if you find yourself needing that too please let me know.  I will try my best to help you.  Love and prayers to all those that feel like no one is in your corner and giving up.  Know that I care and I would do anything to help you feel less alone and more productive.

I may be a little obsessed with Forged in Fire. 😂 The tang (there is one inside the handle) and guard aren't  acceptable but it's my first time trying.  I'll fix all the inconsistencies next round, I promise.  But "it will kill" an ant.

I saw this chapstick at Big Lots and thought it would make for a perfect milk can.  And I was right!  I removed the label and chapstick then glued on paper handles, topped it off with a rustic paint job.

I recently acquired a 40 year old general store.  Some part are absolutely amazing, some parts need a little help.  We're just starting to clean and pull off some of the walls.

I picked up a 30 pack of #2 pencil for $2.00 the other day at Big Lots.  I cut metal portion off the pencil, then cut the eraser off as well.  The metal portion makes for perfect canned foods while the erasers make perfect little cakes.  Enjoy!

So what you're saying, Toby... Neither of you knocked over the milk? It just fell over by itself? It was the wind?  Hmmm... #tinytalesofandreakaups #Toby #daisy #rotten #jerks #dollhouseminiatures #dollhouse #doll #miniatures #miniature #mi
Today's the day!  The rottens are finally allowed on the third floor.  They were so excited they didn't even fight!  Believe it or not, I didn't threaten them once!  Fuzzy butt and fuzzier butt headed up the stairs, weaved in and out of the mess---after they thoroughly examined the mega loads of junk they exclaimed "We love it!". I wonder if I lock ... I mean move them upstairs if they'll continue to play nice.
