My mother is celebrating her 85th birthday . As her short term memory isn't quite like it used to be (neither is mine!!!), she reminisces a lot about her years growing up in Maine. She used to spend her summer vacations at Fortunes Rocks on the beach. It is one of her favorite memories.

It seemed appropriate to make something more special this year that would remind her of a favorite place.  As she was recently talking about her days at Fortunes Rocks, I thought it would be fun to celebrate by making her a cottage cookie that probably doesn't look like anything like her grandparents' summer house.  I had to improvise since there are no pictures of that summer house...hope she likes this rendition.

I love 3D projects because they are always challenging, educational and so much fun . This didn't fail to provide plenty of challenging moments, in spite of the planning that went into it. (One of these days I promise to be better about taking "in process" pictures to show you!)

My biggest mistake was that my measurements weren't all accurate. Ugh!!! This required some unforseen tweaking with the final construction.It's really evident with the top border around the house. Cottage BackBeach side viewLand side view
