The news at the hospital wasn't particularly good yesterday, so I decided this morning that I can either sit and feel sorry myself or pick myself up and get on with it the best I can! So... without further ado, I got on with it :0) I have had a wonderfully busy morning and have managed to put the paths down around the cottage and I have painted and mossed the roof. I will do a proper Gertie post for the roof over the weekend or monday. I am waiting for the moss to dry and then I can put the roof in place and see how it looks. Hywel has to make me a little bridge to go over the murky stream, he'll be pleased, more jobs for him! ;0)
I'm also thinking about changing the name of the cottage from Owl Cottage to Dragon's Hollow. What do you think? The cottage is designed to look as if it is nestled deep in a forest and there will be a fare few dragons living with Gertie, I think the name may suit it!?!
On the Etsy front, because I am not well I am going to take the rest of the summer off from mini making for my Etsy store. I have a little summer sale on at the moment, but once items are gone, I won't be re-stocking. Hopefully, by the autumn, things will of improved and I will be able to concentrate on some lovely new sampler designs and furniture. It will be nice to just concentrate on Gertie's cottage for the summer and of course I am still going to be making bits and bobs for my summer swaps. I think for August's swap I will make some 'normal' minis and not witch related items. If there is anything you'd like to be included in my swaps, please let me know and I'll see what I can do.
Off to check the glue now ;0)
