    I love miniatures, dollhouses, dolls, CATS (real ones), leadlight and decoupage, reading and painting and cycling among other things. My trouble is that I have so many projects and only tend to complete a few. I must discipline myself more. I have built two dollhouses and have a custom made one, but haven't completed furnishing any.

  • Dollhouse Building Experience
  • Real Name

  1. Thanks so much everyone. I contacted a friend in Texas (as I'm in Australia) and she has had the sheet sent to her from Greenleaf and is sending it over to me. I'm so excited about receiving it. I'm going to turn it into an antique shop when it's finally built. Yes, Greenleaf do have terrific customer service, thankfully
  2. I bought a Glencroft Dollhouse Kit from a lady online some years back. She said she had opened it but everything was intact. Stupidly, I didn't check it until now ... I know, I should be ashamed of myself and it's something I wouldn't do now, but this was back in the days when I trusted people online ... Anyway, as you have probably guessed, one of the sheets is missing. Sheet #11, which is the one containing the Front Roof Right Side and Left Gable and so forth ... in other words, main parts. It's too long ago and I can't remember the person I bought it from ... really, I
  3. That's a good idea, thank you for that. It's the mould I'm particularly worried about further down the track ...
  4. Thank you so much for that. It wasn't actually what I was looking for, but I'm very pleased that you posted it as I will use it in the future ...
  5. Hello. I haven't posted here in quite some time, unfortunately life sometimes gets in the way ... I have been working on my witch house and wanted to make a very weathered gray coloured flagstone exterior. I have collected a number of old egg cartons which are the ideal colour to begin with, but wondered if anyone knows how I can actually make the 'mulch' for the bricks. I have seen a papier mache type substance made from the egg cartons that would be terrific, but unfortunately, I can't seem to find the right ingredients ... no doubt some preservative would have to be added, or a mo
  6. Silly of me, I mentioned checking out the VAME website then completely forgot to put the URL in for you LOL. Here it is ... http://www.vame.org.au/ ... and here is a New Zealand one, too, just in case you don't have it ... http://nzame.org/
  7. Well Helen, if you ever do make it to Melbourne, you must contact me and come along as my guest to the Miniatures group I belong to. They sound to be the complete opposite to the group where you are. We always have a great time each month at our workshops. You can check out our website if you like to see our projects etc. You certainly wouldn't want to be visiting New South Wales at the moment, sadly. Our rain belt just doesn't seem to want to get up there and seems to stop just short of the fires. Nice to know you are also supervised by a feline. I have four, two siamese and an
  8. Welcome Helen. I'm from Melbourne in Aus so just across the way from you I also noted that you have a beautiful cat in your profile photo, it's always nice to meet another cat lover. I see you have suffered the same fate as I have. That of building the house only to find the original plans we have made for it have gone by the by LOL. I have four on the go at the moment, and I run into the same trouble with each and every one (and I'm about to begin building the fifth one). I really will have to discipline myself. I belong to a miniature group here and of late I've been busy
  9. I'm very lucky to have a great miniatures club in my area, but it's a bit far for you all to come ... I'm in Melbourne, Australia. It's the VAME organization and if you want, you can take a look at it's website here ... http://www.vame.org.au/
  10. I love your enthusiasm, it's very catching ... Looking forward to seeing your album when you get one up and running. I have a two day workshop next weekend on a Wizard's table, and can hardly wait to go. It's lovely to meet you.
  11. Someone sent me this on Facebook this week. It looks very interesting, especially if you have an interest in Medieval and Tudor periods. It's well worth a look. http://theinfill.wordpress.com/ Jeanie

    I'd like to sit out on that deck on a nice sunny day and sip a lemonade or two ... very pretty.

    Mischievous Horde?

    Love them ... did you make them? (if so, how?)

    That is one gorgeous house.
  15. Hello Nancy. I had that problem, too, with two of my houses. As the other members have said, a sharp craft knife is the answer along with lots of prayers and prizing LOL. I'm just at the stage where I have my own gallery now, but only three pictures to put on it, and none of the three are very interesting right now. I have yet to finish one of mine, I just get so excited about the others that I can't stay on just one for any length of time.
