Here's what I received from customer service from Michael's:
You can place a special order
if the product is not seasonal or discontinued. These orders must be placed
with the store manager and can take about 4-6 weeks to process and arrive
in your local store. You may find contact information on your local store
here: http://hosted.where2getit.com/michaels/ If you have any more
questions, please feel free to contact us. If you have any further
questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to call us at
1-800-642-4235. We appreciate your business!
http://hosted.where2getit.com/michaels/

So, I think it will be much quicker just to order from one of your friendly Craftster peers!

It's a fine line between 'hobby' & 'mental illness

I bought my house at Michaels!  They had the Creatology stuff in three different places.  Animals were with other puzzles.  More animals and houses were with dollhouse and other "girly" craft stuff.  They also had a "princess castle" and a stable in one of the sale sections.  They were only $2.99!  I didn't get the stable but I may go back.

The house was $13.49 regular price, but I used a 40% off coupon, so it was about $8.

This is so exciting! I found a house making kit at Goodwill for $5! The crazy thing is that the kit is from a store a couple of blocks from my house (The little doll company in Toronto, if anyone knows about it) and it retails for $60! What a find! As soon as I saw the kit I thought of the houses you made Knickertwist. I'm so joining this craft a long!

What type of paint do you use and do you prim the wood before painting?

The kit I bought was missing the instructions, so I went on the manufactures website where I was able to download them. The house I have is called buttercup doll house.

I absolutely want to visit that shop! We're about an hour and a half outside of TO. I might just have to make a special visit one day.

I don't  usually prime the wood so I can't recommend anything BUT I do recommend painting both sides of the wood to prevent warping.

It's a crazy awesome store. Absolutely everything you can think of in minitur size. They sell electrical wiring for doll houses, your doll house could have a door bell that would actually ring!

I put together a very, very small house that I bought today. I am going to use it as the lion house. Which is like a dog house but a lion lives there =) Because I decided that my bigger house is going to belong to circus folk. Any decent circus folk need a lion living in their backyard in his own little lion house.

I would love to take part in this. If any of the people that got the kit for really cheap would be willing and able to send one to me in the UK I would be so greatfull. How heavy are they? do you think they would cost a lot to send?

I would love to join you all. I just fell in love with a haunted doll house online yesterday and wanted to do something like it. I'll be making a stop at Michael's tomorrow!
