I love participating in the N.A.M.E. holiday swap because I love receiving minis as gifts. It's so much fun to open the swap package.
The theme was the holidays from Thanksgiving to New Year. Ten of us signed up so we had to make nine gifts.
I made two items: a platter of holiday cookies:
And gingerbread dough for cookies in progress:

Here are some more pictures of Christmas in the world of Penelope's Dollhouses. :)
Yesterday I had time to play (in the calm before the storm of Christmas Eve dinner) and so I made some scenes.

We are getting ready for Christmas in the HBS loft. I had previously made this into a bar/dance place for the 2012 #HBS #creatincontest . Ah, the days when we danced together.
Anyway, now it's an apartment. The real estate agent has left flowers.

I finished shingling the roof. I am going to paint it a washed-out grey.
And then I made the grass. I wanted to replicate what we had done to make the grass in the Theresa Layman class making the garden cottage. We used a static grass applicator--the electrical current makes the flock stand up in the glue. And so I bought the static grass applicator three (3!) years ago on eBay.
Unfortunately, it did not work as well for me this time. I don't know if it's the machine (I never tested it when it arrived) or me or both. I think maybe I needed to make the glue more watery. Anyway, I am still happy with my grass. I think it partially stood up. And I will go watch some more train videos on electro-static flocking to find out to improve. Lol.
