Well it's 8pm, and we are without Internet AGAIN! Lately this seems to happen every night. Because we're out in the boonies, the big Internet companies aren't interested & all we can get from them is dial up.
Our only choice was to go either satellite or with a private company. Unfortunately we went private. We needed a receiver down at the boathouse to pick up the signal from the that, we're lucky because some parts of the lake have no direct sight line and are therefore condemned to dial up. From the boathouse we had to run 300+ feet of cable to the router in the house.
So this posting is written in Word & from there, when we're on again, I'll transfer it.

I wanted to show some of what I've been working on. Currently I'm making 3 rush seated ladder back pics of those yet. Once I'm done, I'll get you the tutorial.

Here's the travel's coming along nicely.
this is the suitcase is that I started with
I've cut the hole, ripped out the innards, built a box of birch plywood and am in the process of painting the walls & ceiling.
I've cut a piece of Plexiglas to fit over the opening which I can either attach to the plywood or to the suitcase lid.

Project #2: take one finding, add one bashed Michael's hutch and you get:

the change table is formed by a couple of craft sticks

It's still kinda empty. I've been looking for printies of diaper boxes & other baby products but so far any that I've found have printed out fuzzy even tho I'm using photo paper & have the printer set for high definition. So what I'm going to have to do is scan real boxes & shrink them. Hopefully that will resolve the issue. Not sure what to do if it doesn', I suppose. Any suggestions will be gratefully appreciated.


  1. Boop Prinites have hundreds of printies of almost everything you can think of. Try them here
    there are several pages so you might want to browse around.

  2. Doreen...thank you! I've tried Boopmini & while there are some great printies, they come out fuzzy. The little 'Good Nite' diaper box was the least fuzzy.

  3. That is going to be wonderful, what a great idea! Love the colours you are using too.

Always love hearing from you....
