Happy Friday

I have not been posting enough blog posts lately and although I don't have a lot to say, I thought I'd give a quick update. I have spent a lot of my weekend (and weekday) hours working on my new work room which will house my brand new laser cutter. This has been a big step for me, one which still isn't sitting well, but I had reached that point where $$$ needed to be spent one way or another. So I will post a photo of my little work space when it is a little more finished - just some painting left to do and some trimming out to neaten things up. I am very excited about this new little space. It will make things much easier for my little business.

And I also opened a website, with an online store, hints and tips, gallery, etc. I am having a sale this weekend. Orders over $60aud will get 10% off. Just enter the code GRANDOPEN10. The sale starts at 8am AEST Saturday 28 July and ends at 12 midnight AEST 29 July.

Here is my new website address:

So onto more fun stuff. I will post some pics of some stuff I have been working on this year.

A little 3d printed Shapeways bike out the front of my Carmel cottage. So cute, but it is the cheaper plastic so is quite lumpy.

The bedroom of the Carmel:

Some views of the living room:

Needs some cushions I think....

The entry:

And kitchen:

I am really happy with how this cottage has turned out. It still needs accessories, but they will come in good time.

I have also done some work on my chateau, including the salon floors:

I laser cut parquet floor parts and now and sticking them together. I have made not quite 20 of the squares, with quite a few to go, and I have not been doing too many lately, but some progress is better than none.

And another new little kit. It is an odd scale, so I may size it up to 1:24 scale and sell it in my store, but for now I am working on getting the roof parts right. When that is done, I will be able to reveal more.

Ok, enjoy your weekend everyone. I will be painting and fixing up a few little things in my workshop! And hoping for some sunshine.
