  1. 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!
  2. Oops, sorry Jackie for the repeat. My pc is behaving in a slightly wonky manner lately, and I somehow missed what you said
  3. 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
  4. 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?
  5. My MIL once received a watch as a Christmas present....3 YEARS AFTER her sister sent it
  6. 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
  7. I remember mine being about an inch long and less than 1/4 in diameter. What do you want to make?
  8. 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
  9. He was just doing his job as a structural engineer
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. So wonderfully tiny!

    I'm ready to move in
  14. I see the building inspector has arrived...hope all your permits are in order
  15. Love everything about it...as usual
  16. 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 mi
  17. 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.
  18. I noticed the Sturbridge Miniatures Festival isn't happening this year either. Just when i was actually going to be able to make it
  19. Thank you so much for the heads up as well as all the work you do to keep this wonderful place going
  20. Babies are the best minis of all
  21. Wow, long time no posts from me although I do check in to see everyone's wonderful work. I have had a whirlwind few months; though I was tired when the kids were small, but it seems to be worse now? We are almost finished with our real life kitchen renovation. We were supposed to be starting it around the end of March, but burst pipes, water damage and broken tile pushed us up to just after Christmas.
