  1. Hello from another Washingtonian make sure to visit Connie up at CJN Miniatures in Edmonds, I think she's the only one in WA that has a storefront and she's been open for 6 months. Such a helpful gal!
  2. Looks amazing for your first one! I'm still in the beginning stages of my first one and it's not nearly as good as yours! Great work.

    Arthur

    I really love this styled Arthur! Great work
  4. Thanks! It's hard to turn off the perfectionism, but I suppose that that is what my first build will be all about - like you said, learning a lot from making mistakes. I have read a lot about dry fitting before gluing anything, yes. So far I've just used masking tape to dry fit everything together before I glue.

  5. Selkie - great advice about priming in the sheets. You're right, I believe this may present a problem for the smaller pieces! I sort of dont love the trimming that the Arthur kit comes with, anyway... It's possible that I choose to bash that part and do it my own way ;) thanks for your reply!
  6. Shannon - your apple vodka comments are much appreciated! Feel free to let loose ;) thanks for the welcome. It's good to hear that you prime first, construct, and then decorate.

  7. I spoke with the owner on the phone for quite some time, I'm working on my first build ever and she gave some good advice! I'll be heading there to visit her shop this weekend and can't wait. Let me know if you know of any other shops in WA, they are hard to come by!
  8. Hi there Greenfield community! I've been lurking for several weeks on the forum and finally worked up the guts to post. I gave away my childhood dollhouse and extensive collection in my teenage years - I thought I grew out of the hobby. Little did I know that I would become massively obsessed with creating a new dollhouse in my mid-twenties! I believe it is due to this middle point in my life, where I have a growing career and finally have money, but don't have enough to buy a house, and I don't have anyone to buy one with, yet. Solution: make my own miniature version. For that reason, I am dr
