Having had a very full year. I wanted to do something totally for me for total enjoyment.
so I got my Arthur down from the shelf...gave it a good cleaning. I was going to paperclay the base of the porch but since most of it would be hid I decided to just sponge it. but of course I was glueing down the finishing touches when I realised ''''nope''''
the picture patrol forgot to take a before photo...but its there!
what makes this house so special to me is that I didnt want to bui
I have been trying to be good about staying off my feet and giving my stitches a chance to heal so today I decided to do my Hampton house.
first I check for all the peices.
all here...plzz note it is easier if you leave the parts in the sheets to paint...this house fell out of the sheets when I took it out of its packaging.
so I did the only thing I could after I painted...put another paper plate on top of the one my parts were in and weight them down...fortunatly
well after all I had done to that house I had to take it all aprt as it was not fitting together.
the Northeastern Lazer kits are very precise and the only reason to muck up is myself!
so after gluing all the parts I broke while taking it apart I started again.
this time with much more pleasing results.
so now it is finished but for the landscaping....but as I only like to drag all my goodies out at one time Ill do a couple more projects before Landscaping.
It has been suggested that I blog the building of my micro Beacon Hill.
I will add all comments and photos to this one entry even though I will not be doing it all at one time.
I got this kit to do while I was recovering from surgery....
I decided to do all of the prep work before surgery so I could take this to the hospital and put it together.
so tonight I have had a dry fit
in this scale the dry fit is more to get the feel of the rooms for decorating as
[i know its been awhile since Ive posted anything new but I have been busy
getting ready to take some of my things to the local Library to display for National Miniature month.

here it isfirst effort!I really wanted this waterfall done so my sister in law said whats stopping you? "fear Ill muck it up" so she bent my arm and we started dabbling....first with thin wires for the falls...nopethan fishing line....nopeso I got out the plastic wrap and I wasnt afraid to use it and we dribbled senic water down the plastic wrap and some dark blue and calypso blue while it was wet enough to blend and we have a garden pond....I want to do some things to it before it has its big "
no photos as of yet...I painted the dungeon a colonial gray and will give it a dirty wash of black and water I have textured painted the ceilings in the Haunted house and I have cut a hole in the wall for a fireplace.I have a free standing one but it will take to much space in the room. I will try my hand at paperclay for molding the fireplace...I had wanted to do the whole outside but for some reason I just cant get the stone work to look like stonework <_< I cut out the cross sectio
well Im so excited My haunted house arrived just in time for Labor Day. we had grand baby all day till 10:30pm and my sis and BIL was here with the kids he had to work and went home and after the baby went home sis and I started the project.
