    Too many to list, but fooling around with computers is up at the top. It's always nice when you can find ways to integrate your hobbies with the work day in a productive manner (another passion is Star Trek, but I'd be hard pressed to pass it off as work). We've been able to take advantage of a lot of new technologies at Greenleaf that I feel have improved our abilities to service our customers better and improve our product offerings. For instance, re-mastering the Arthur was handled quite differently from when the original dies were made almost thirty years ago. If anyone tried to convince my grand-pops back then that we would be using computers and lasers to complete the same task in half the time, he would have thought them crazy! The precision these new methods offer were unobtainable back then to any one other then a true master craftsmen such as my grand-pops. To this day we are still amazed at some of the complex dies we stumble across in our archives.

  1. Howdy all! Just wanted to give everyone the heads up that the Pierce Dollhouse is back in stock. Our region of NY lifted restrictions on manufactures on May 15th, so we've been nose to the grindstone ever since. We are still operating with a reduced staff so we are only providing customer service through email... please help us out by emailing your question instead of calling. Let's see some pictures of the Pierce so the lurkers out there might take the plug and join our community to share their own pictures. Of course, the Pierce that I dream about is Peacock Palace... Tracy always blows my mind and this house is simply amazing! I hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy! Dean AKA Mini Man

    Forum Upgrade

    We are working on a long over due update to our forum. This update is necessary and as with previous updates, it's sure to bring new features that you may come to love or hate. Along with these new feature should come an increase speed and stability. I appreciate everyone's patience during this transition and request that you do not email customer support about any forum issues as they won't be addressed. Mostly, I just wanted to see how the blogs are functioning prior to the upgrade which the main reason for this post. Posting images using the "insert existing attachment" feature is something I hope members will consider when adding an image to a post. Our upload directory is getting oversize and uploading an image to a post that is already in the gallery is redundant. We can also link to any image using the URL feature. You can also embed a gallery into your post which I'm attempting to do here.
  4. The Best way to navigate this blog is to select a members name from the tag that is under their post. This will give you a list of only that builders post. As an example, please see this link: 'Follow Minis On The Edge's Orchid'. As you can see, only Tracy's entries are visible. Please keep in mind that the order of the blog entries change as people add comments, so we recommend that you look at the dates of the different posts and start with the oldest. As you move forward in time, you'll see the progression through the building progress. If you still have questions about the construction of your Orchid Dollhouse, don't be afraid to join our community and ask a few questions. The Greenleaf Miniature Community has the largest collection of knowledgeable miniaturist on the internet, many who I call friends... its a great place to meet like minded people! Thank you for choosing Greenleaf Dollhouses and the Orchid Dollhouse Kit and big thanks to all that made these blogs possible! Mini Man

    Thanks Holly! I've missed everyone too. I'll try to stop in more often.

    Dean like! Clicking on the tag brings back a very narrow search results. Try searching "tags" compared to clicking on the tag "tags" (should have thought through my choice of words before tagging). It's also very visible from the forum view to quickly identify posts. I'm going to dig around in the admin setting to see if there is any other setting related to this.
  7. Hey there KB! I just edited this topic to see how these tags work. Please excuse the intrusion. Hope all is well!

    Well it looks like only a topic can be tagged and not the replies. Adding a tag afterwards requires a moderator edit. I just added the same tags to a post by KathieB to see how it works.

    Howdy everyone! Haven't been online in a while and thought I'd say hello. Very moved by seeing so many familiar names. Big thanks out to all of you for making this the go to place for enlighten miniaturist. This tagging thing is new to me. It seems kind of handy, but not too popular. I'm going to see if I can tag another member's post.
  10. Sup everyone! Glad to see a lot of old friends in this thread! I hope all are well and enjoying the season! Gina, very sorry about your McKinley. Drop me an email with what sheets you need and I'll send you replacements. As it has been explained to me by my wood suppliers, these are classified as wormholes. They are caused by the critters burrowing into the tree that the veneer was cut from. As they turn down a log, these anomalies can present themselves deep into the stock as the actual borrowing may have taken place decades ago. These defects are similar to knots and other imperfections that are buried into the tree as the living wood grain grows around them. When plywood is manufactured, the veneer is steamed/cooked which kills off any living organisms. Gina is a good friend of Greenleaf's... I believe she saw what she saw. I hate bugs more than your average guy, so I've looked at a bunch of these things over the years and there has never been any sign of life. Sorry that you had the unfortunate luck to see something Gina! Again, very happy to see so many familiar names. I thank you all for making this forum all that it is... the greatest collection of miniaturist in the world! Dean

    This is a test album
  12. Shutting off Google maps integration doesn't fix the problem. It shows the address in text form rather than the map. I'll get with Logan and see if there is anything he can do. There is a privacy setting just below the map where you can hide it from the public/other users. I would suggest you use that for now. FACT: Dean hates upgrades more than anyone. Keeping current with the latest software is the only way to stay ahead of hackers/malware/spammers, so therefore it is a necessary evil. I thank everyone for your understanding and patient as we all get use to the new software.
