Happy Thanksgiving!

The kitchen from The Holiday set.
Greetings! In case you thought I quit miniatures, or something equally dire, I wanted to update you and say thank you for being so patient. I've been scratch-building a corner kitchen counter and sink for the Holiday cottage out of mat board. Kris Compas, who most of you probably also follow, makes amazing minis from mat board and card stock and I've been wanting to try it. During a trip to the Ann Arbor PTO Thrift Shop I found a large stash of mat board for 25 cents per board! I've got enough material to fill a mini mansion. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it is actually easier than using balsa wood, glues quickly and paints up well.

For those of you celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday, I hope that you are with the favorite people in your lives making lovely memories. For the rest of you, I hope that you have a wonderful day!
