Plumbing is done!

Whew that was a dirty job...LOL For all the faucets I used earring backings, and for the shower head its part of an earring also. I took Tanya's idea and used the little wire thingies off those suctions cups for the spigots. Works nicely I think , Thanks Tanya. I took the large paper clips and sequins to make the railing and towel racks. The window and door frame were easy, just measured and cut. I plan on making a door with stained glass and I'm not sure about the window treatment yet. So now comes the fun part, to decorate. I want to add shelves, but not sure where. I have a whole week to think about that while I'm working at my real life job. I hope my boss doesn't find that out? LOL.

Now this is what I call a collection! Awesome!!!

Just thought you might want to take a look a this video.;photovideo It's great.

I'm back... It's been a hectic week. (in RL that is). First off, I had to work on one off my days off. Then I had to take my DNL to the dentist to get her four molars pulled and then on Friday my brother had surgery to remove two of his thyroids. Then Sunday my granddaughter came down with strept throat. My poor son. But like I tell him God brought us to all of this he will see us through it.

I still managed to work in my crafts. I made a christmas ornament (6 of the one kind) and worked on my minis, as you can see above. I made the toilet tank and the shower stall and the sink/vanity. I am still uncertain how to do the inside of the shower stall. Any ideas.? I would like to tile it to make it look like stone. But not sure. As far as the sink, I made it with clay which is still drying. I plan on painting it the burgundy color. I am going to add all the plumbing and hardware on my next week off. Also work on the window. Then put everything in its place and anchor it down. I still have things I want to do before I even think about decorating. So stay tuned, Till next time....... Be safe.

Here we have a throne fit for a king and a sunken bathtub fit for a queen. Can you guess what the throne is made from? The tub is made with one half of a two piece clear plastic heart form the craft store. I built the framing around it. I made the floor tile from one inch chipboard squares that I found in the scrapbook department. And the tiny hearts are the trimmings you use for your fingernails. I had to make 120 tiles (what was I thinking). I am having so much fun. There is so much more to do, I have to grout the floor, make a shower stall ,a sink, and a water tank for my throne. and that's not even getting into the details of faucets and all that stuff. Then comes decorating(the real fun thing to do). Keep coming back for updates. I have to go back to work tomorrow so I won't be working on any crafts. I work 7days on and 7 days off. The 7 days off is when I really get into my crafts. Working ten hour days doesn't leave much time for fun.
