Real Name

  1. Hi everyone, I am happy to join this community of all things miniature. A little about myself: I have a very creative mind. Ever since I was a kid, I collected toys and simulated battles or adventure stories. I think that miniatures helped me escape from reality and I was able to create my own world. However, growing up, I lost touch of this passion of mine. I hope to rediscover this passion by exploring other people's creative worlds. First 2 questions: Where do you usually buy your miniatures and what do you look for ?
  2. Hello, everyone. I have always wanted a dollhouse and dabbled here and there over the years. Now that I'm retired, I've thrown myself into the hobby with a vengeance! I have a beautiful farmhouse built for me by Kelloggs and a Victoria's Farmhouse I bought second-hand. I've been learning so much and find myself engrossed in a project for hours! I've learned a lot from this forum about painting the dollhouse, what glues to use for different projects and types of wood for dollhouse furniture. I'm so grateful for everyone's generous support and suggestions! This forum is a godsend!
  3. Hello everybody I was suggested to register to your forum by a kind lady. So here I am! I 'm a 49 (nearly 50 !)years old proud mum of 3 beautiful daughters (aged now of 20, 18 and 14 !) . I always love miniatures since I'm a child and when I was a student to become a physiotherapist I started to craft by myself furnitures for my pleasure, then roomboxes. I discover that it was a real hobby when I went to London and visited a dedicated shop and shows. In France it is not very popular as in England or America. Until internet arrives, it was very hard to find
  4. Good Morning! I just wanted to share a link to the Shapeways shop I opened over the weekend. I have 3D printed Kitchen Miniature Sets available currently with more products coming soon! The sets are available in 1:12 and 1:24 scale and include a Stockpot w/lid, Skillet, Small Saucepan, Baking dish, Loaf pan, Pie plate, Mixing bowl, Rolling pin, Pitcher, Tea kettle w/lid and a Small mug. They are made of a sturdy nylon plastic and can be painted easily with just about any type of craft or model paint. I'm happy to answer any questions you have and would love to hear what yo

    There is room on the side porch for a table and chair, which I have included for her.

    All Finished!

    I've left off some of the extra trim - I'm expecting this house to get some rough handling.

  8. From the album: DIY Miniatures

    Today I knew I was goi to be crafting miniatures. I love days like this. I can sit in my PJs, drink coffe, watch my silly reality shows and do what I love. I am a serious Fiestaware lover. I have been collecting fiestaware for 25+ years. When I first saw some mini fiestaware items at miniatures.com my heart skipped a beat. Since I made food I figured I would try some plates, and platters. Well I kind of got carried away. I recommend this to everyone. It's pretty easy to make your own collection of unique dinnerware. I love the colors. I just need some more platters,

    Coming in on the home stretch. This was taken the night before she had to leave to go back home to Nebraska. She chose the theme of a little snack shop for the house - to be named Savannah's Snacks. She traveled back plane so I will have to ship the house to her after I add the final finishing touches. (It's MDF - going to cost a pretty penny! )

  10. From the album: Granddaughter's Dollhouse

    She likes sparkles! I brought out 3 books of scrapbooking paper - "Grandma! You're killing me!" She finally decided on a sparkle-circled pattern for the attic ceiling. We did a lot of spray paint and papering on this project as there was not a lot of time, and her attention span was pretty short.

    Honestly........this has to be the most frustrating miniature light I've ever made. Waiting for the Epoxy to dry so I can repaint. And after all this, I'm almost positive this is too large for my Sugarplum Dollhouse. Ugh.......so mad. I have to start over for correct sizing. Maybe next time I can figure out how to electrify
  12. From the album: Sugarplum Dollhouse

    this is for anyone who is building the Sugarplum Dollhouse. I scaled down the interior furniture. You can see the sizing of the bed. It is smaller than 1:12 but larger than 1:24.

    DIY Bed

    From the album: DIY Miniatures

    It's not going to be the most beautiful bed but it will work. At a later date I will make myself a really nice iron bed. This is more for spacing to see how the room will lay out with the bed in there and for sizing. im making a quick mattress, also for sizing. I'm not so much about the mattress. I'm all about the bedding. for the quick mattress, I measure for size and cut three layers of foam board and glued them together. I took a tip from a tutorial posted on these forums too. I used three layers of very thin batting (I actually cut it out of a old tree skirt). I measured

    From the album: The Appleby Cottage

    The table (with the extension under the window) I made from a HOM kit. The dry-sink is a Chrysnbon kit, and the ice-box I made myself from a pattern I found in a book (30 years ago).

    The barrel is actually a puzzle that had belonged to my grandfather, who was the only one who could put it back together. It has remained that way since he died in 1952. I had it in my first bookcase dollhouse, and always wanted to add apples to the top, making it look like a barrel full of apples. Finally did it! The apples are glued to piece of clear acrylic, not to the actual puzzle. The picture on the wall is of my great-great-grandmother, who lived in the era of this house.

    Strapped into the back seat of the car - heading off the WA State Fair. I don't expect to win any prizes on this because it is out of scale, but I wanted to take it anyway.
