  1. CONGRATS, FRIENDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  2. Here's the information for the Kansas City and St. Louis miniatures shows for 2016: http://www.miniatureshows.com/ Kansas City: June 3-4, 2016 St. Louis: October 7-8, 2016
  3. Hello, all! I'd like to invite you to come to Nebraska State Day 2016, which is put on by the Omaha-Council Bluffs Miniature Guild. It's a really fun event (I'm a member of the guild and have gone for the past 3 years) where you make a mini build in one day. There are sales tables, raffles, food, and lots of wonderful minis. If you're interested, here is the information on our OCBMG blog: http://ocbmg.blogspot.com/2015/10/nebraska-state-day-2016-sign-up-info.html Last year, we had 32 participants from 8 states, so everyone is welcome -- this is NOT a NAME-only event.
  4. WHOO HOO! This is fantastic! I'll be sure to share it with the members of my guild.
  5. Well, it took a while, but I'm all finished with Luna Lair. Here's the link to my gallery: http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/forum/?app=gallery&module=gallery&controller=view&id=114935 I didn't have a lot of time to upload pictures, so if you want to see the innards better, you can peek at my blog here: http://www.talesfromclarkstreet.blogspot.com/2015/10/presenting-luna-lair.html On to the next thing! Phew!
  6. I'm so glad you had a good time! Thank you for coming!!!! I'll ask about the screen material at our next guild meeting.
  7. Grazhina, you've always been so good to us with sales and discounts. Thank you!!! I love my items from NEM and will always think of you when I see them. Best of luck with all new things on the horizon. (And yes, I did shop! Yay!)
  8. I got the crystal knob sets at HBS. Here's the link: http://www.miniatures.com/Crystal-Classic-Doorknob-wKey-by-Houseworks-P17615.aspx
  9. No error. They're supposed to be that way. I remember them being different sizes than the downstairs windows. Here's a picture of the second floor internal windows: http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/forum/index.php?app=gallery&image=95789
  10. Casey, you rubbed off on me, too! I got the 8 pack and one of the boxes of 3 -- the "bored" minions in the brown winter coats. Ollie isn't speaking to me because they look perfect in Luna Lair.... ;) (Thanks for the tip. I needed some fun!!!)

    This story really touched my heart. You're a very good grandma!!
  13. Oddly, Ollie will have a front door. That should help with any strange weather. Just shut the door.
  14. Even all naked like that, the tanks are SO cool!
  15. You'll be fine!! Many of the houses I've build are super flimsy and difficult in dry fit and then rock solid when I glue them. I've also had warped pieces or misaligned parts. Don't be afraid to cut off a tab if it doesn't fit in the slot and just glue it together that way. I understand about the perfectionism. I'm really hard on myself when my house looks a little wonk. I get scared to work on it. But over time, I've learned to keep going and that I'm always learning, which is the really important part. The more you do and mess up and fix and figure out, the better you'll become at your craft.
  16. The window and door trim has been added. Ollie hooted his approval. Kinda. http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/forum/index.php?app=gallery&image=111336

    Be careful. This is how we all end up with like 50 dollhouses -- to get more room. Haha!!

    I absolutely love the fact that you've incorporated items from your loved ones. It makes it even more beautiful.
