Finally getting my butt in gear today. Phrixy helped by peeling off the failed rock wall attempt I did on one outer wall. I couldn't bear to tear apart what was a weekend's worth of work.

I've now installed the shim wall additions to make the roof level on the longer side, and I'm going to do a couple coats of papier mache inside and out to keep them sturdy. After that I'm going to do some painting in the rooms, since it doesn't come apart to do papering instead. I'll probably use felt for carpeting in some rooms, and I have tongue depressors I may use for wide wooden floorboards. Haven't quite decided yet.

Since i couldn't find a kit in the stores and I have quite the left over card board from maquette making I'm making the house using the template katara found.
Here are the pieces that are painted. I haven't done anything to the roofs yet because I don't know what I want to do with them...


I'm going for a gothic mansion where an elegant lady lives who likes painting, reading, piano playing and witch craft Cheesy For the colour combination I've chosen black-silver-red Smiley So if anyone has any suggestions for the roof, let me know Wink

I have to find the power cord for my camera so I can show off how much I got done!

I have 2 rooms painted and with fancy trim, one with felt carpet.
Mattresses created for the kittens' bed and the cradle.
Painted and added a mirror to the kittens' desk.
Created a mosaic mirror for the main bedroom to match the decor.
Sewed up the cross stitch pillows for the kittens.

I've decided I need to scale down the fireplace since my house is slightly under the 1:12 scale. It takes too much space in my livingroom space the way it is.

It is a regular item at my Michael's--there are always stacks of them...I have three on the floor next to my nightstand ready to go...

They had everything BUT the dollhouses at mine. Ugh. Anyone wanna swap or sell one?

Anyone who can see that Tyrion Lannister is the BEST character in that series deserves a house! Cheesy

I am PMing you...

Reichan--you can make fake shingles for the roof using sandpaper painted dark grey...ha ha I still have not done my roof so I have no room to talk!

I don't know if many of you have taken a look at the discussion boards but you may want to check it out, currently in the  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER under the suggestion a new board there is an on going discussion for creating a miniature board so that all miniatures will be in one place  the discussion thread is located here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=219367.0

if more people join in the discussion a miniature board may become a reality
