  1. Today I spend half a day trying to make a gallery... Believe you me, I am not a noob at computers and websites but this forum has some difficult features. Thanks to other members who looked for some answers earlier I found out how to get it right. One of my goals was to be on the frontpage of this site and I have done so...

  2. I have been diligently organizing the craft room and closet. As I empty boxes that were hastily filled for the move, I'm able to consolidate like items together, which helps immensely. I also found the box with the rest of the Beacon Hill components and, more importantly, the instructions and my inspiration pictures! It's great fun opening bags and boxes to discover items I'd totally forgotten. Another day should pretty much see this operation completed. Am finding odds and ends for the yard sale, but so far no minis. It should be picture ready soon. I even found the materials to make

    The bathroom is finished! There was a gap between the baseboard and the floor- even with the tile sheet, so I put in some quarter round. Looks good!

  12. I'm using the cardboard egg cartons. Can't see through them, but their contents are advertised with bold labeling. I think you likened a build to a jigsaw puzzle in another thread where you were encouraging an overwhelmed newbie to take one step at a time.

  13. The hubs & I are planning a day in Mobile today to find the Mobile Museum of Art, and I noticed on their website that they offer beginner classes for wheel-thrown pottery. You might check out your local art museum or sometimes if there's a school for the arts handy they will also offer classes.

  14. That is true, you're never done with a house, no matter if it is real life or miniature.

  15. Working slowly but surely on getting my work spaces cleaned up and organized, and hoping fervently that we have finally seen the last of the snow we're meant to until winter sets in again. Amazing how trying to clean up and organize can somehow make you feel so NOT organized... anyways, back to the grindstone of getting stuff moved and changed about. Thanks to those that have posted their own organization efforts -- you're helping to keep me on track with this.

  16. I thought the same, Holly ... but I took Kathie's post to mean she has other plans for the doll. Sorry if I misunderstood.

  17. They did a nice job on that one. I wonder where they found the cars for the garage.

  19. Yeah, I've always thought if I could just build a new house from scratch, it would be perfect and no further renovations would be needed ... yeah, no. I think a lot of us miniature house people are really just house people. We'll never stop revising, because we love it and we can always improve :]

  20. I've been building the Pierce for a few years. If you need any info, plans etc - I'll be happy to email pictures of them through to you. Likewise if you're not sure of what part goes where or what part is missing, I have all the schematics etc. Just message me!

  21. Hi, Sheila, and welcome to the forum. The hot glue may appear to be doing the job, but experience tells us that eventually it will deteriorate, causing the structure to deconstruct. If this were my project, I would first scrape out any hot glue that bulges beyond the surface of the joint. Short of taking the entire building apart and reassembling, I would run beads of wood glue or white glue (not Elmer's School glue) along every joint -- wall to floor, wall to ceiling, wall to wall -- and let capillary action draw it into the cracks for added stability. When you have specif

  22. Yes, liquid laundry starch. It's great for gluing cloth to a surface. It dries invisibly, holds tight, and is easy to pull off without harming the wall surface when it's time to change it out. I usually paint the wall with a thin layer of starch and then gently press the cloth into place.

  23. Thanks Andrea! I used to be in the same situation - a tiny space to work in. Then I moved into the dining room, but made no changes to it for about three years. Finally, I realized that my home should be where I LIVE, and why reserve a room for use only a couple times each year. So, I moved out the hutch and buffet, and started truly enjoying the room on an almost daily basis. Do we ever miss having a dining room? Not really. On holidays, we gather in the kitchen/family room, use tv trays and the coffee table, and it works out just fine. I hope you can find a solution so that you end

    I finished the exterior! I put bricks around the porch foundation but I ran out. Not sure if I will do the rest of the foundation with more bricks or just leave it. I'm kind of anxious to do more on the interior at this point. LOL!
