Last year John decided me trying to cram all my mini making onto the little kitchen table wasnt working and as he had decided he didnt use his shed that much, he donated it to me! Now its our little workshop, its where the houses sit when they are being worked on ( although the HP house is in the dining room, its too cold out there to work at the moment!)
I even have a little chaise bought at the car boot where the children come and bother me and give their imput from! Crazy really when all this is just for a hobby but I had far too much stuff and it needed a home so its quite cool! I do occasionally sell things as a means to an end in that I have to spend on materials for the projects and often things from talented miniaturists catch our eye and we just have to buy them .So to sell some minis gives a bit of pocket money for that to be able to happen. At the moment though we dont have the time and too much is going on in our lives for me to be able to do this, so have to scrape the pennies together in whatever way we can for those must have buys ( eg Kats hats, Nikkis goodies!!)
Mostly as we have so many projects on the go we just needed some space away from little fingers in the house and somewhere some of the houses can go. I have a beach house in here, the Sweeney house is in pieces in here being decorated externally, and the diner. I also have 2 market garden kits bought cheaply on ebay which Im thinking of turning into hagrids hut, if John can put them on some sort of stilts/base. How great would that look with the pumpkin patch next to the HP house with conservatory full of crazy plants and the Whomping willow on the other side...............need a bigger house!!!!
And see, my view is worse than yours Nikki, I have to look out on Chopper bikes!!
