  1. I've never been there, but heard good things. I'm in snowy Erie.
  2. Welcome & look forward to seeing your projects!
  3. This is probably really basic for all your pros, but I did a blog post about 8 really easy miniatures you can make from dollar store items.
  4. Hi Carla, you'll like this forum! I'm right by you in Pennsylvania.
  5. I'm wondering how you guys make the holes in the wood and what you use to pound in the pins? Also, do you use any glue at all in the process? Finally, at what point in the process do you typically put in doors? Thanks!
  6. Thanks! I've not used paste, but the pros seem to double up.
  7. Wondering if you guys still use wallpaper paste on wallpaper that comes in pre pasted sheets? I've heard it's best to still use the paste even if your sheets are pre pasted...
  8. I think it's safe to say most of us have never seen a dollhouse like this before. A street artist created a rather haunting 1/10 scale abandoned house...reminds me of some of the places you see in my Rust Belt town! https://mymodernmet.com/alice-pasquini-abandoned-dollhouse/

    OMG so creative, great work!
  10. How exciting! You'll find lots of helpful advice here. Post pics of everything you make!
  11. Mine is probably, "Isn't that a kids' thing?" Also, when I opened my store, lots of people said things like, "There's actually a market for that?" Umm, a big, fat yes!
  12. Yes, I can't wait! I have this article set to publish on my store's Facebook page in a few days, it's about the lady whose dollhouse inspired the story and the people who brought it to life : http://www.radiotimes.com/news/tv/2017-12-27/the-miniaturist-bbc-real-dollhouse/
  13. Yes, I only read it. I would like to see it though!
  14. Hi from Pennsylvania! I love the Alison Jr., good luck with the rehab & share some pics! :-)
