An Indoor Weekend

We woke up to this lovely winter landscape this morning. It's around 18 degrees with some strong winds, definitely a day to stay indoors and work on projects. This week I was given an older dollhouse and, after a trip to Lowes, am ready to start the restoration. I loved my dollhouse when I was little and I hope Greta finds this one just as fun. It's blue exterior is getting a fresh coat of sage green paint to freshen it up. I'll show some before and after pictures once it's done. I'm having fun with it.

 Sean has been in the basement working on the calibration of the 3D printer. He was ready for the maiden print yesterday and found an appropriate first project. Wesley woke up to find a freshly printed Minecraft Creeper head. I put a short video at the bottom of the post. It was fascinating to watch it print the honeycomb design that made up the interior body of the cube. Very cool piece of machinery.

WOW, that video is amazing and so is Sean! I hope he has fun trying to make spinning wheel bobbins. I can't wait to see what he does.

Greta must be thrilled to be getting a doll house. She's so imaginative.

Miss and love you all.
