  1. Well, I am back online after 3 weeks off to move. It would have been much easier if I had set fire to everything but my dollhouse things🤣 Now comes the work of taking everything out of the box and finding a new home for it. Luckily this house has a massive amount of storage space, and it looks like I might even get a dollhouse room
  2. Congratulations Grazhina, and Muriel that floor is lovely:) The family and I are about to start a new adventure....moving.
  3. A peanut butter egg is a sweetened peanut butter filling that is shaped into a flattened egg and then coated with chocolate. They are delicious!
  4. Oops, sorry Jackie for the repeat. My pc is behaving in a slightly wonky manner lately, and I somehow missed what you said
  5. MDF isn't strong enough to stand up to a metal scraper hence the plastic one would be your friend. Go easy as MDF likes to tear away in bunches. Also keep in mind that MDF does do fairly well with wood filler if you should make a big hole...also caulk hides a multitude of issues
  6. Unfortunately there are no easy methods for stripping paint from anything With the number of paint layers you are talking about you might not have to worry as much about it being porous as the first coat of paint usually gets sucked right in and fills it up. I might take a piece and try a chemical stripper with a heat gun and a plastic scraper. Then, invest in a Dremel tool if you don't have one already; sure beats sanding by hand. Curious as to what kind of paint you used?
  7. My MIL once received a watch as a Christmas present....3 YEARS AFTER her sister sent it
  8. Ah, it's your first time working with quality control inspectors? They can be very demanding, but keeping a nice cardboard box in your work area helps...sometimes
  9. I remember mine being about an inch long and less than 1/4 in diameter. What do you want to make?
  10. I have lots of nail polish tools that could be adopted seamlessly into minis. Just do an internet search for nail stamping and think of the possibilities
  11. He was just doing his job as a structural engineer
  12. An 8 quart instant pot fits 4 pint jars. I use mine to make yogurt....although I haven't had time for much of anything lately except work
  13. I decided it would be a good idea to put my back out at work yesterday...not sure what I was thinking. Hindsight being 20/20 it had been telling me to slow down, but I just wasn't listening
  14. So wonderfully tiny!

    The cottage

    I'm ready to move in
  16. I see the building inspector has arrived...hope all your permits are in order
  17. Love everything about it...as usual
  18. I wasn't quite sure where to put this post, so I picked this thread. Apologies if it isn't right. I have been working flat out since February; I work in an essential business that isn't connected to healthcare, so let's just say people can be real jerks sometime and leave it there. I can't go to my local salon since they are all closed, so I have started my nails myself again. I stopped a few years ago due top my MS stealing most of the feeling in my left hand. Anyway, I bought the tool referenced below to help me, and when it came yesterday all I can think of is how perfect it would be for minis! It has a wonderful grip/feel to the pen and there are loads of different bits available. I have a Dremel Micro which I love, but I have a feeling I will be buying another one of these for minis...if I ever get 10 minutes to myself again MelodySusie Professional Rechargeable 30000 rpm Nail Drill,
  19. Hello everyone! It's nice to see all of you againEveryone here in my house is doing fine, although my work has been exceptionally crazy.
  20. I noticed the Sturbridge Miniatures Festival isn't happening this year either. Just when i was actually going to be able to make it
