  1. Past hour
  2. Cynthia, just a suggestion, make it in card first, and use the parts for a pattern.
  3. Today
  4. I've never used this, but the site says for 1" scale, it's an overgrown look, which sounds like what you want? https://www.miniatures.com/Grass-Mat-P28793.aspx
  5. Yesterday
  6. I suppose you could leave them out. I had so much fun making them for mine.
  7. I love making anything out of paper love your pop up cards Erica and everyone paper creations it’s one of my passions to. i make these fairy nightlights right now
  8. This was so informative and helpful. I started getting arthritis in my knee. I used to do a lot of work outdoors for fun. Working on my dh has replaced a lot of my gardening and canning time, but I would feel guilty for not wanting to power through. It would be nothing to can 8 hours after work. I can't now. But I don't feel so bad about it. Thank you for sharing!
  9. Ah, I looked at the photos again and saw the bucket beside the basket of drying twigs. Clever you! I skipped past that pic when I looked the first time. Are you planning to put it out for birds to use it? Since is cannot be cleaned out, it might be best to keep it indoors as a lovely bit of rustic decor.
  10. Last week
  11. Thanks to all soldiers who have lived, died, and fought for our country and the cause of freedom. Your service made and still makes it possible for all of us to enjoy the freedoms we sometimes take for granted, and to live the best life we can.
  12. I use a combination of hot glue and Aleene's tacky glue (hot glue in a few spots to hold it instantly and a bead of tacky glue so that it has a better hold over time), then hold them in place with blue tape and mini spring clamps, depending on which part of the roof I'm on.
  13. Or put her in a muumuu and him a tee shirt and put them in the Travel Trailer!
  14. Glad it worked out! Those directions sometimes look like hieroglyphics lol
  15. Hi havanaholly, I'm in the Bradenton area, but do go to Orlando once in a while. Thanks!
  16. I had a hard time following a lot of the directions as things just don't make a lot of sense to me without pictures so I'm sympathetic. I've been looking at that house but haven't built it. I hope it comes together for you two. Welcome!
  17. I found mine online by googling: http://www.corona-concepts.com/instructions/laurel.PDF
  18. I agree, but put a some wax paper on after the floor dries and then a heavy book overnight.
  19. Drill a hole in the ceiling so the wires from the light will poke up through it. Run the tape wire along the floor near the hole. Attach wires to tape using eyelets. Floor treatment will cover the wiring. This is one place where leaving the stock plugs attached will be a problem. The only way I can think to do it with plugs intact is to drill a hole and pull wires through as above (plug will have to be removed), run wires across room to nearest wall, cut wires to size, reattach plug, and use pound-in outlet. The outlet and plug can be hidden behind furniture, curtain, etc. I would lean toward the first option. There are less parts to wiggle loose and cause trouble later. I have not used the wall switches, so I cannot comment on that.
  20. When I glue mini upholstery I lay the piece on a bit of waxed paper, lay a small piece of scrap wood or chip board on top and clamp it with small clamps until dry.
  21. Renee, the front-opening dollhouse "doors" are the front walls, so you would want them to match their corresponding rooms when the house is closed up. As for guoins, you can cut them from paper mache packaging/ egg cartons or make sheets of paper mache, or use paper clay, or use strips of masking tape or painters' tape and spackling compound or joint compound.
  22. I’ve bought jewelry from there twice and had good experiences both times.
  23. Only if that's the look I'm going for.
  24. Suzanne, I have requested that your email address be removed from your post.

  25. Welcome to the little family, Amanda. After working in 1:24 scale, 1:12 will seem huge.
