Would I????????? lol Unfortunately it will have to wait for several days as we are suppose to get a lot of snow. I am so excited trying to imagine what all she has. Stay tuned!

  2. Hi everybody! I just bought a 1/2 scale Elizabeth Anne, already started (first 2 pictures), but after buying a kitchen set from SDK, I found that the kitchen and bathroom of this house are very small for the furniture that I want to use, so I decided to make my own additions, and so far this is where I am at. I should probably open a gallery to show my progress, but I need to figure out how to do it, I am not familiar yet with the new settings here. Here we go... 1

  3. Last Spring I sold a HJB Christy's Cottage kit to a woman in my club. Today I am driving up to the consignment store it is currently at to repurchase it. My goal is to build it all in white with a real slate roof and donate it to the charity my husband works for, Child Rescue Coalition.

  4. Whoa! Everyone has been so busy! I read I just haven't "liked" them all......even though I do LIKE them!!! Well I haven't been participating much because I have major issues with my SI joint. I am now wearing a back brace so I decided to take out my little Arthur and start on something. Maybe I can do a little each day ( famous last words because once I get started I am a run away train!) Anyway, The Arthur has been in my closet for I don't know how long and it seems manageable for me if I don't over do it. I punched out all the major pieces and sanded. I made myself p

  7. Angela, there was a lot of sanding! And spackling, and more sanding. Then painting with some good quality paint, then more sanding. LOL! Most of the trim is original kit wood, but some is basswood strips, which is definitely much nicer to work with than the plywood. I found that if I thinned out my wood putty with a bit of water to make it more toothpaste consistency, I could just smooth it along the rough edges, let it dry, then sand it smooth. It helped tremendously to get a clean crisp edge to that shaggy wood. Lots of splinters, though...

  8. We just finished our annual extended family Christmas party Saturday night for +25 folks. I like to get all the food washing, chopping and dicing done first because that's my least favorite thing to do. I am so s.l.o.w. at it. So I have the celery, green peppers, pimentos, onions (red, green, and sweet), broccoli, cucumber, tomatoes and thinking well isn't this healthy. Then I pull out the sugar, powdered sugar, brown sugar, cream cheese, sour cream, buttermilk, cheddar cheese, bacon, etc. to add to the veggies and think, "well, hmmm.." It was a great night and always makes me think of my mo
