I don't know if I've mentioned it but I work in an accounting department. The end of the year is always crazy at any company but more so if you're one of the folks responsible for producing the numbers that drive budgets and tax returns.
Add to that with the time off I had around Christmas and the time for the holidays, I was super behind on my work. So when I got home at night this past week I haven't had a lot of energy to do much. I'm also trying to not get sick like half of the office.
I've been gluing the addition walls together a bit. And while they were drying I worked on the front door.
Miniatures.com had a great little tutorial on how to make a modern door. I needed a few things for it which arrived this week so I had everything conveniently to hand over the weekend. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.
Having something turn out nicely softened the disappointment I was feeling over the lack of windows arriving. I had ordered four windows from Superior Dollhouse Miniatures and only one arrived. Apparently despite them being in stock when I ordered them, they did not have four and changed my packing slip accordingly. I'm irritated but figure I can use the one I do have as a template for making three others.
And it'll give me some practice making windows so I can do the skylights and smaller square windows required by the kit.
Other than that...life has been cruising along. Lots of folks I know are sick with the flu and I hope you're all feeling better soon.
See you next weekend!
