  1. Love how these turned out! I went with the wide craft sticks and used the chop saw I got for my birthday to take off the ends. That was the best gift! I can't believe how quickly I was able to whip through the cuts! I'm working on the Mediterranean tile in the back of the room now. Kim

  2. This represents countless hours of flower making. Just thought I'd share a little spring beauty in 1/12th scale since I finished "planting" this evening!

    I am impressed with how this kit turned out. I have a few and this is the first I have finally made. It is made of a lightweight cardboard/ cardstock that is laser cut. Here is a link to their site. https://www.castlecrafts.co.za/

    Moss upholstery. Something I’ve been wanting to try out for a future project.

    The golden velvet was too thick for half scale and the peach color was too “matcha-matchy”. The final color decision for the Victorian settee was turquoise fabric. I think it works and I like how it brings out the colors in the bird wallpapers in the parlor. I need to add some decorative cord to the bolster pillows, but this piece is basically done.

    I was thrilled when I saw that Tiny Iron Miniatures was offering this bed in half scale. I couldn’t buy it fast enough! I can’t wait to start dressing it. It will be a surprise and a sneak peak into my crazy ideas for this year's Creatin' Contest.

  8. My mini work has slowed down to a grinding halt. Not sure why. Combination of interest in genealogy research taking over much of my free time, taking care of a hubby recovering from another surgery (hip replacement this time), and weekends seeing the grands. Speaking of which - my 3 1/2 yr old granddaughter loves to come downstairs into my work room and play with the houses in rehab. At some point the subject of her wanting to help Gigi paint comes up, and I give some sort of excuse as to why it's not a good idea today.....maybe when it's warmer outside. Well, last week during one of ou

  12. I thought I would share my carving process, although it’s more grinding and sanding rather than carving. First I find a suitable sized chunk of wood, tight grain works better for tiny figurines. Next I sketch the basic shape on the block and use scroll saw to cut out. Next it’s dremel time and grind away to get the basic features to come out. Once it get close I switch to files and sandpaper....LOTS of sanding.

  14. Thanks! It's all done with cardstock/poster board. I bought a large sheet of black poster board that I'm using for all sorts of things. I traces the triangular shapes onto the cardstock using the wood piece from the kit the roof sections were punched from. Glued one side at a time, trimming the edges once dry. I then cut four 1/4" wide strips for the corners and thinner strips for the vertical seams. Once all the strips were glued on, I painted with a mix of silver and black paint. Finished off the base edges with thin basswood strips I painted white.

  16. Place a picture of a room interior behind the "glass". Put an actual curtain, blind, or pull shade behind the glass if there is room. If the house has shutters, one or more former windows might have the shutters closed.

  17. You might want to consider storing it vertical when not in use as mine ended up being a catch all tray sitting on my workbench. I got annoyed at myself as I had to empty it every time I wanted to use it.

    It still needs some cord trim on the bolsters, but it's finished.

  23. I used the ruler/utility knife method to score 'planks" in one of my dollhouses. Then I used a pencil to darken the lines and also to put in "nails." It actually looks more realistic than you might think.

  24. After doing one on a whim, I discovered I like doing mini animal carvings from wood. The cat was my first and it turned out bigger than I wanted, still enjoyable but not well suited for 1/12th scale. Next I challenged myself to go smaller and made my Olifant. A tribute to a life size decorative design piece, perfect for any dollhouse.

    Cleaning up my mini work space I found myself grouping plants. A cheerful image for Friday! Most of these will end up in Lapin Lavande and others are listed in my Etsy shop. But these are for me. All plants are half scale. The penny is nestled in there somewhere.

  29. Welcome Cayce, For wallpaper, a cheaper alternative is scrapbook papers. They go on sale at the major craft stores all of the time... I recommend this blog by Kris Comfort. It will inspire you to make your own furniture...http://1inchminisbykris.blogspot.com/

  30. Thank you! It’s starting to look like a house. The stairwell will have to wait until I finish the great-room. Well thank you, you’re not too shabby yourself. The glass can be a challenge at times but I just love the look. Why thank you, that’s very humbling.
