But this makes no sense...

I don't know if i've mentioned this here before, but i'm kind of a starter person, not a finisher.
I'll start a projects and i'll be almost obsessed about it for a short period of time, and then i'll forget all about it, sometimes for years.*
That's why i'm always super excited, and a little proud of myself, when i actually finish something.
Doesn't even matter if it turned out good or not, the important part is that it's finished.

Today i was moving some hat boxes around and i stumbled upon a very old project and i just... finished it, i guess.

It's not a very practical one, i can't sell it and it has no function, but at least it's done.

I think it started with the house, i made it from a box, put up the wallpaper (leftovers from my parents kitchen cabinets), rope trim and carpet, and i made the table too
There's a bit of wallpaper on the sides
And on the back too
And maybe then came the bird?
Here's the weird rabbit girl, she's on the way to the pigs birthday party (it's been so long i can hardly remember how i made this, but i guess the head is fimo, acrylic paint and rope for hair, and the body is pipe cleaners and fake fur?)
She's all dressed up, as you can see!
There's the happy birthday girl, eating her cake (the chair is from a hobby shop here in Cph)
Rabbit girl has no fork, but she'll find a way to get some of that cake, i'm sure (the pig and the cake is from Kiddy Land in Tokyo, where they sell these little boxes with random cute things in them)
I cleared a shelf in the livingroom and spread out all our junk over two shelves, it looks a little empty now, but it's not like we're gonna stop buying stuff (or stop making crazy little dioramas?) anytime soon

Now i've moved on to some skull sculpting and painting, it's nice to finally get some work done around here!

*I have a painting on the shelf behind me, that i started in the old apartment, so it's at least two years old now.
Maybe more.
And it'll probably never get finished.

  1. WHAT?! Det kan du da sagtens sælge! Fuck, hvor er det bare for sejt! Men jeg elsker også alt der er mini og tapet og og! Jeg er fan.
    Og er iøvrigt også selv en starter. Det kan godt være lidt frustrerende nogle gange.

  2. That is wonderful! Every detail! And you could absolutely sell things like that- framed dioramas (like in shadow boxes) are so beautiful! I'm using too many exclamation points. You should make one of the shop!

  8. Ej, tak altså!

    Thanks guys, i'm glad you like it.
    And isn't it a little funny that we're all a big bunch of starters?
    We should form a club or something.

    The japanese book collection continues through the rest of the apartment, it's more of an obsession than a collection at this point!

  12. Amalie, hvor kom den lille kaninpige fra? Har du selv lavet hende? Hun er pragtfuld. Du kunne lave en hel føljeton med historier om hende.
    Mange gode hilsener,
    Lise

  13. Hej Lise,
    Ja, kanin pigen er hjemmelavet, jeg kan ikke engang huske hvorfor det lige var jeg lavede hende, men hun endte da med at blive meget fin!

    Tak for den søde kommentar,
    Amalie

  14. Amalie, tak for at du ikke sagde Læs dog bloggen, stupid. Det var da for dumt af mig, du havde jo skrevet, hvordan du havde lavet hende.
    Hun er så sød og speciel og en lille smule skræmmende. Jeg tror der kan blive mange eventyr for hende med eller uden den nuttede gris.

  15. Haha, det er ok, jeg er også god til at skippe en sætning hist og her!

    Ja, hun er faktisk en lille smule spooky, det var vist ikke helt meningen, men whatever!
    Jeg tror ikke grisen har opdaget det, den ser bare ud til at være glad for at der overhovedet kom nogen til dens fødselsdag!

  16. Sådan er nuttegrise, glade og tilfredse og hyggelige at være sammen med. De ser kun det gode. Alle burde have mindst én nuttegris blandt deres venner.
