Busy as a Bee

The last few weeks have been a blur of activity! 
Last weekend I attended the annual CAA Conference in Chicago, and stayed with my good friend Marianne, who is also in her last semester of grad school (and just as stressed out as I am right now!)  We had a good time, and did some major catching-up!

This week artist duo Guerra De La Paz arrived here on campus.  They are going to be here for the next 10 days working collaboratively with our class creating a livable home within the Jack Olson Gallery.

We've been busy building walls, roofs, and furniture - all using re-purposed materials.

The gallery opens up on Monday, we are going to be working hard this weekend!

Good thing there are a ton of hands working together on this!

Each student in the class is also making an individual object or furniture piece for the installation as well.  Here is the start of mine:

Dollhouse Flooring and Furniture

I wanted to share some of the furniture for the dollhouse that I've finished.
The tiny easel!  I don't even own an actual easel (sad) it is one of those things I've always wanted but never had the space for. Hopefully that will change soon!

The frame for a couch - it will have a seat cushion at some point:

And floors!
I used a birch panel which I scored with an exacto knife (which was much harder than I thought it would be!) sanded smooth, and then stained.

As of now, I've just done one part of the floor, and still have to install it in the dollhouse.
