With the Knit Wit finished and at its new home, when I returned from P.E.I. it should have been time to get back to finish the North Pole Postal Service. I have to build the front room's service counter, make up the few little people who will make an appearance in the post office, add a few more accessories and finish hooking up the last of the lighting. So, did I get to work on that? Of course not! But I do have an excuse, or actually a reason. I cannot, for the life of me, get my head around what I really want that front service counter to look like.
I often find myself at a place in my projects where I have to think, think some more and then think some more until I finally land at an "Aha moment". Until that happens, I cannot make myself move forward. So - still thinking, but when it finally hits me I will go go like a house on fire. I hope it happens soon!
In the meantime, Marijke, Louise and I decided we would work on a group project. We are making small market stalls. We started with some leftover kits I had from when I cut out the ones I made for Camp Mini Ha Ha a couple of years ago. To refresh your memory, here is what they looked like.
I liked the way the white paint covered the walls, making them look a little aged without looking too grungy. I also added boards to the back wall and really liked how the white looked after I dry-brushed them.
