Birthday Girl

    I must have been twelve or thirteen when I got one of the best birthday presents ever.  My father took me to a hobby craft store and gave me one dollar to spend for every year old I was.  The best part was looking at everything in the store and taking my time to decide on the items I would buy.  I remember one of my purchases was a mold for making 1:12 scale bathroom fixtures from plaster of paris.  At the time I was building a small village of doll houses for my Borrowers and they greatly appreciated having indoor plumbing.

    By squeezing the grocery money for about three weeks and combining it with a gift card from a friend, this weekend I got to re-live that best ever birthday.  Here I am with all my loot. 

I’ll be using these things to develop more tutorials so I’m not even sorry that I didn’t buy any of the dolls on my wish list!  Now I’m off to go skating with my family, another birthday tradition.
