A little accident

On Saturday I had a little accident with my eye, so at the moment I cannot work on any of my hobbies.  I won't go into detail here, but if you want to find out what happened go to my personal blog Glaginye and read the summary in English at the bottom of my posting (That is, if you don't speak Dutch of course :-0)

However, I can just about manage to read the larger fonts on my computer screen, so I'll try and update my blogs in the meantime.  In the late 90s, when I had just started in the miniature world, we often used the IKEA 3D frames "BAS" as a small roombox.  There was also a smaller (half) size, but that was taken out of production even earlier than the BAS frame, which is no longer available either.  I made a little nursery in the smaller size for a friend of mine who had just had a new baby girl and also made little girl's room in the bigger one and used another to temporarily store all my plants and flowers in.

Unfortunately I don't have any good photographs of the nursery.  Back then I managed to buy a cheap digital camera (my first) which produced very grainy pictures, like this:

Of the other two I have been able to take a few clearer pictures:

Since I have joined the local Woodcrafters group where I am learning boxmaking (amongst other things) using the dovetail joining technique, I had a good look at one of those IKEA frames and thought: I can do that!!!  So I did.  I won't say that everything I make goes well, but this was good enough for me:


  1. Oh I read what happened, that must have hurt! Hope you get well soon and luckily your eye didn't get any damage.

    The box looks great, I love the flower shop!


  2. The Ikea roomboxes filled by you with minis are beautiful! Your roombox is lookin good!What is going to be inside?
    Hope nothing seriously happened to your eye. Get better soon!

  3. Thanks for the compliments, both of you. Luckily my eye isn't hurting too much. My new roombox has no destination as yet. I more or less made it, because I was doing this boxmaking class and I thought any 'box' is as good as the next one! One day I'll be glad I made it..... ;-)

  4. Me encantan tus escenas, te han quedado maravillosas.
    Espero que te recuperes pronto.
