  1. Hi Maragarita! I just saw your comment today... five months later! No, I didn't use baby powder. It's just layers and layers of acrylic paint washes. I had so much fun playing around with the colors!
  2. Hi Jeffrey! I just read this comment today... five months later. We need some kind of notification on gallery comments. Anyway, yes it is a kit.. the Sugarplum Cottage by Greenleaf. I made this one for the 2004 Creatin' Contest at Miniatures.com but never really finished it. The chimney is flat in the kit, but I made it 3-dimensional and added Magic-Ston to the outside. Thanks for the compliment!

    The kitchen

    Yeah, makes me wish I were a little 5" tall person so I could move in. I adore the leaf furniture and the shell sink... you are so very clever, Deb!

  10. I can totally relate, Corey. Although I really wanted another child but felt guilty as if I was being selfish, because we had a lot of problems during my pregnancy and I knew in my head that it would be better not to do that again. But my heart was pulling me another way. I also felt torn between loving having just one for the reasons you described, but also desperately wanting that son to have a sibling to play with.

    Thank you so much for saying that, Tracy. I get teased a lot for obsessing about color schemes and such. What helped this time was that I purchased practically everything at the same time so it was all co-ordinated.
