  1. That's a great find. Plus, Panera's delicious so that's a win-win.
  2. If it's an iPad, you may be able to print the screen by using these instructions: http://www.tabletpcexpert.co.uk/how-to/print-screen-using-ipad/ Pretty much, you hold the power key and home button at the same time. Then you can forward the photo to your desktop and print.
  3. This wasn't a dollhouse, but on Million Dollar Listing NY, one of the realtors commissioned a scale replica of the condo building he was selling. The model was all basic wood and glass for windows, but no extra details besides some little trees and grass. Anyway, it cost $100,000! Had me thinking I should get into the model business. Also, here's more pictures of the Gilmore Girls dollhouse: http://smehreen-dollhouse.blogspot.com/2007/01/dollhouse-on-gilmore-girls.html . That was SUCH a great show.
  4. I also use my iPhone and iPad as it's more convenient to upload on the internet or send through email. Unfortunately, the camera quality isn't too great. The auto-enhance, HDR setting, and photo editing apps do help out a lot.

    Random Minis

    A collection of minis I have made, most of which are in my etsy shop.
  6. From the album: Random Minis

    Made these using real wax from candles and beading thread as the wick. I posted more details on my blog: http://mariasminis.blogspot.com/

  8. That cracked egg with the yolk and shell is too cute!
  9. I recently posted about this on my blog since I wasn't sure if there was a post here before, but I just think this is the coolest thing. A company in Berlin, Twinkind, 3D replicas of you in 1:12 scale: http://www.wired.com/2013/08/this-company-will-transform-you-into-an-incredibly-detailed-3-d-printed-figurine/ You have to go to Berlin which is the bad part, but it would be so cool to have a mini-me in your dollhouse. http://www.twinkind.com/en/landing
  10. I vote for the extra piece as well. It gives the house a nice realistic touch.
  11. You did an amazing thing, and I can't wait to hear updates. I too adopted my dog from a high-kill shelter, and hes my best friend.
  12. I'm doing the fling and I'm going to finish it. This is the mantra I keep repeating because I'm still mad at myself for not finishing last year's Creatin' Contest.

    Dining room

    These rooms look so cozy. Great job!
  14. I like the interior of this house a lot. It's a little modern but also eclectic.
  15. I definitely vote for some form of stairs, whether illusion or a staircase. Depending on the style, you could do a spiral staircase to save space. Or, and this is very out-of-the-box, an "elevator" if your house is bigger.
  16. Can't wait to try this one. This is a must-follow blog.
  17. I can't take credit for this find; http://mitchymoominiatures.blogspot.com/?m=1 actually posted this, but I though it was so cool that I had to share. It's a coffee table that turns into a modern dollhouse. http://www.qubisdesign.com/index.html Personally I'm not a huge fan of modern style, but this gets my gears turning about the possibilities of a Victorian or more eclectic one. As if I needed another project.
  18. Hmm what's the February Florida show? I might be in that area at that time and would love to attend a show if I could.
  19. You should bash the Westville to include a bathroom because that would bother me also. The Lily is a great kit because it looks impressive, but isn't overpowering size-wise. You could always enter the HBS Creatin Contest. This year its a decent size with a lot of possibilities.
  20. Welcome and what part of NJ are you from?
  21. Thanks for mentioning me !!! And taking notice that I try to be extremely thrifty. As for furnishing on a budget, there are a few things I would suggest. First, and because this is a Greenleaf forum, the 6-room furniture kit set from Greenleaf is about $40 (found here on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Greenleaf-Doll-Houses-Furniture-assembly/dp/B001JK1LR6/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1358286349&sr=8-5&keywords=greenleaf+dollhouse+kit, or check eBay). Now, you're going to have to get a little creative in how you finish the pieces to make them more realistic, which will require addi
  22. Crafts are a form of art, and art is most definitely not gender specific. Can't wait to see what you to with your new kit and a big welcome!
  23. I resort to buying most of my wood from Michael's because it's all I have closeby. Their hobby wood can add up in the cost department especially when you need a bunch of pieces. I've been lucky to find a big pack of round wooden dowels for $.99 at Wal-Mart when normally one wooden dowel the same size would cost me close to that at Michael's.
