Ummm.... I think I sort of stated that the teahouse is finished. And it is, but the dealine for finishing the I'm a Giant Challenge has been extended and now I feel like I need to do more, eventhough I don't really want to. When I started the teahouse I started a project I knew I could finish in the time frame given. Now that more time is given to finish what has been started puts me in an awkward situation.
I made my "dollhouse" deliberately minimalistic and simple, but I think beautifull, because I felt it would look good in my home and because it would be timely possible. So what I quess I'm trying to say is that now that people are given more time to finish what they've started and are able to make their houses as grand as they had visioned, my allready finished Teahouse is leaving behind. I am aware that if I would have not finished the Teahouse I would just be relieved and I would be only happy that the deadline has been moved forward.
I loved, loved, LOVED making the Teahouse, making miniatures seems to be a great hobby. I cannot remember any other thing for a long time that I've consentrated for as long periods and which I wouldn't have wanted to stop doing. In my opinion the Teahouse I made is amazing and I would ruin it if I would do more to it. I have an idea of making a dry landscape garden around it, or on the side of it, but I'm not sure. Not that the garden wouldn't look good, but I'm afraid it would make the whole Teahouse and it's surroundings too large. Then I would have the issue of where I'm going to showcase the Teahouse. I'm still thinking of the garden though and I might do a setup that can be taken apart later. I even have sand ready in soda bottles (yes, you read that correctly, I have collected sand) from a beautiful beach in the Finnish archipelago.
What this whole post means is that I have no freaking idea what I'm going to do about this challenge.

Update 19th December 2011
After I wrote this post I got a comment that made me realize that it does not matter at all what others do. And now after a good night sleep I'm not annoyed or stressed anymore and I feel that what I wrote there was a bit selfish. But I'm glad I did write that and that I got such a good comments. If I wouldn't have written that it would have taken me a whole lot longer to realize how wrong I was or I might have never realized it. Thank you Emma :) and scb.
