2012 - the Year to Complete Unfinished Projects!

A miniature fairy
Happy New Year, everyone. I hope 2012 will see you doing some wonderful miniature projects.
   I bought this tiny angel last time I was in London one New Year, at Harrod's sale. She's only 2 inches tall and has a cheeky smile on her face. Looking at her always brings a smile to my face as well. A great way to start the year.
   In my miniature world I have declared 2012 to be 'The Year of Completing Projects'. If you are like me and every other miniaturist I know, you will have, tucked away in boxes and drawers, unfinished projects. Things you started but put aside when a newer idea struck you. Things you didn't even start. Things that are still in their unopened packets, shoved in a cupboard to stop you feeling guilty every time you see them! Furniture kitsets, N scale house kits, craft materials, even perhaps, a dolls house to build.
   A friend sent me this little ditty which made me laugh. It explains a  lot about the Unfinished Projects Syndrome we miniaturists are subject to, doesn't it?

                              Why is it when I'm halfway through
                              Creative joys diminish?
                              It's far more fun to start a thing
                             Than it ever is to finish!

Now you'll have to excuse me, I'd better get back to the studio. I've a retro caravan to complete!
