A Free Printie. A Quarter Scale Sofa. Just print it out and assemble.

Notice:    My Site is fixed. You can now download  The Mini Sofa and the Happiness Poster.

This morning I have a surprise for you. A Quarter scale dollhouse Sofa that you can make with Card Stock and Poster Board. Print the piece out on Card Stock and leave some of them just Card Stock. On the indicated pieces cut around the pieces in a general area then glue to Poster Board and cut out. The Poster Board pieces are the pieces that need to be thicker such as the tops of furniture, etc. The Card Stock that I used is 110 pound but you could probably use a bit lighter weight such as 90 pound..
Above is a picture of the whole set that will furnish La Petite Maison. It is a little house  (pictured below)  in Quarter Scale. You will have room for this one. It is very little and easy to make. See photo below. To see Mini furniture and La Petite Maison go here..
To download The Mini Sofa go here and look for Free Printies  
Attn: the Mini Printie Sofa may not be available yet. Sometimes the publishing takes a while. If it isn't up yet come back later to download it.

A Poster for you. + A medication side effect

Hi everyone, I have a Happiness poster for you.
Good Morning. As I was debating my life this morning this thought occurred to me. After having been told that a certain ailment was "all in my head" for over a year and then finding out that it was a medication that I was taking, I thought that it might be a good idea to tell everyone of my experience.

For over a year I have been coughing and coughing. No sleep. I can't go to church anymore. If I had let myself I would have become very depressed but I kept on working on my Paper Projects. Since I had cancer six years ago and have COPD and Asthma the doctors thought that was the reason. The Asthma and allergies were part of the reason but the main reason. Lisinopril. Yes the blood pressure medicine. Finally when I was in a new doctors office she heard me cough and said. That is Lisinopril !!! She put me on a new  blood pressure medication and the coughing is much diminished. It may take some time, (it has been about a month and a half) for it to totally go away. Then there is always the Asthma allergy's but I am so much better. I can sleep. I am not confined to my room coughing away. Thank you Lord and Thank you Dr. Gloria.
I read on the internet that at least 20% of the people who take Lisinopril develop a bad cough after taking it for a while.
It is a good thing for you to know so I am passing it on. Perhaps this information will help someone. 

Meanwhile, this morning I had this thought and I made the above Poster of it. You can print it out. You can find it on my website as a downloadable .pdf file Look in the Free Printies section.
Have a great day

Two great Paper Model Sites and my New Pirate Ship. Pirates of The Chesapeake Bay.

Hello All

I love Paper Models as you can tell. Here is a new one on one of my favorite sites.

A great little Paper Bird to make. Rob Ives who owns this site makes the most interesting Paper Models and they MOVE. this is a new free one but you can buy them if you want. Kids love them.

Also Below, some great  Paper Models here.

 A Monster Control Center

                                              A Castle

A Rocket Gun

If you have never made things from paper and cardboard, now is the time to try it. These are great projects to make with your children.

Aren't these great models. I don't know either person. I hope they don't mind me putting these up. Believe it or not these are FREE.
I wish they were my creations. Oh well, I am still trying to make more things.

This is one of my new creations. It is a Paper Pirate Ship.

This was made especially for the gift shop on our island. I am selling it there. It hangs from the ceiling like a mobile. If any of you would be interested in a pattern to make it. I can put the pattern up for sale on my Etsy shop. You can write it in the comments. This one is made for our island. We have a history of Pirates here. So I made it a Pirates of the Chesapeake Bay Ship. The decoupage is made from printed facts of the Pirates that roamed the Chesapeake Bay. On the back of the sales is an ancient map print of the Bay.  This one is One Of A Kind.
I am now working on an Angel Ship for our Pastor now. I have so many ideas.
