Shop updates.

First, here are two of the three statues I got from MiniKitz as mentioned in my previous post.

Zooming farther back, you can see a new OM sign I added to the right of the statues, made simply with a design I found online and cut out, then glued to a painted wooden circle. Simple enough.

Next, I made a display for gemstones that one could use for a collection or for more mystical purposes. I also clipped out a handy chart of stone properties and pasted it behind the display. The display itself was made from a Michael's cabinet door that I glued to a thin piece of balsa wood. I painted them then glued the tiny gem chips in each section made by the door's panes.

 Lastly, as part of my ancestry is Pennsylvania Dutch, I decided to add a cute hex sign to the outside of the store. It livens up that bare wall nicely.

I just wanted to drop in and mention how pleased I am with Minikitz! I ordered a few things over the weekend and my package came today - so quick! The following were part of my order: Hindu God #12 (Tara), Hindu God #18 (another Tara), and Hindu God #20 (Buddha), and the Medieval Book kit. The little statues were very detailed and look very realistic. One Tara is going in my meditation temple, and the other two statues will be in the shop. The Medieval Book (which comes with a free herbal) will also go in the shop.

I plan on ordering from this shop again - I am attracted to one of the dolls, which are inexpensive but very pretty. :) I just need to learn how to make an outfit for it when I do purchase it. I am thinking crunchy, earthy shopkeeper, so I would go with a long skirt, tank top, and long sweater (that's what I typically wear anyway). The doll I like has boots painted on, but I could cover them in material to look like little Uggs. Hehe. And she'd also probably have dreads, too. Gotta have dreads. :)

Anyway, going to go through my fabric as I am working on the temple...I am trying to find something that will look acceptable as an altar cloth. :)
