A big mini hello to everyone


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! 

I've come across these forums a number of times looking for information or inspiration on Google. I finally got up the nerve to join and say hello.

I've been building miniatures for a little over a year. It started when my youngest daughter asked for a dollhouse. I never had one as a child but always wanted one so my search began. At the time, I really couldn't afford anything and I hadn't realized how expensive new kits could run. She was only 5 and I also knew, she'd be like a bull in a china shop.

I used a storage shelf that we already had and started converting the cubbies into rooms. I did six rooms in all with upcycled materials and supplies that I already had. From then on, I was hooked. I now build furniture and accessories as a side job and just finished my first dollhouse kit build.

I'm looking forward to learning from you all, getting to know you and sharing projects.

  Havanaholly always does the welcomes. She lives near the coast of Alabama. It doesn’t look good in that whole area, I hope she’s staying safe.  Prayers to all...

Welcome to the little family, Erica.

Welcome Erica :wave:

When the mini-bug catches you, it is really hard to shake off.....It becomes a chronic condition! What house did you build?

When I was a kid I used the bottom of a bookshelf for my Barbie house. It was perfect in my eyes. I'm sure your daughter feels the same.

I have been thinking about Holly too.

Here I am, Sally made her landfall 25 miles directly south of me and we just got power back yesterday and internet a little while ago.  Welcome to the little family, Erica.  Which house did you build?

My first build was the Sweetheart by Dura-Craft. I modified it a little. I've ordered the Newberg for my next :)

Oh, someone posted about your Sweetheart last week! https://forum.greenleafdollhouses.com/topic/44434-sweetheart-dollhouse-how-to-customize-it/

You did a great job. I wouldn't have guessed it was your first build.

A little determination and imagination can go a long way.

That deserves to be embroidered on a pillow! :D
