Hello, hello! I have been very busy, but I've managed to make a few things for my shopping centre....For example...I built the massive shelf that is featured in pics 1&2. Yes, I'm so proud of it, I still can't believe I made it all myself. It is quite a simple structure to design, but to get all those shelves right....well, that's another story! Anyways, here it is, all finished. Initially I was going to paint it in a nice colour; but after finishing the whole thing, I actually thought It looked nice in its natural shade. So what do you think? Also, as you can see, there's going to be some sort of balcony in the shop. Notice all the tiles?? All individually cut, sand, and painted :/ 
I'm afraid you will have to be very patient with me, if you want to see the progresses of this shop? So, any other ideas on what this shop is going to sell?????

While here you can see my cat inspecting the works on a ceiling I was meant to do ages ago. It is going to be the ceiling of the ground floor hallway. It is going to have a bit of a vault shape, as you can see from the pic. The problem with this ceiling is that I couldn't come up with the decoration of it. I simply didn't have any ideas. Till one day I was browsing through old FMR magazines....and ta da! Found the perfect thing! Went to a photocopy centre, had the magazine scanned and enlarged, and now my ceiling doesn't look like plain wood sheet anymore. I still need to do something to the ceiling, so that it doesn't look like a plain photocopy stuck onto it, but hopefully it's not going to take me another 2 years. Yeah, this is the time it took me to find the right decorations!

I hope you've enjoyed seeing what I have been up to lately, and I promise I'll keep you updated on the developments of my shopping centre.
