I haven't taken any more pictures, but I did finally glue the house walls together!

I spent yesterday sanding and painting the pieces for the front porch, the stairs, and a couple of assorted trim pieces. 

Most of what is left from the kit is the outside trim pieces.  I think I am going to add a bunch of interior trim to cover up some of the issues where pieces meet on the inside (especially those where I learned that I needed to sharpen/replace my Xacto Roll Eyes).

I scored a few of those mini clamps/clips at the hardware store for $1!!!

I realized when I was working on my house that a few tools and supplies would have made my life so much easier!

I also bought new blades for my cutting tools and a huge bottle of white glue...

Haha, if non-crafty people ever heard us go crazy over craft supplies, I'm pretty sure they'd think we all need to be put away.

sooooo true!  In fact, my husband is a perfect case in point - he just pretty much tolerates (sometimes only barely...) my insane craft obsession!

I was scanning rather than really reading and at first I thought this said "and a huge bottle of white wine..."   Cheesy

Some days that would be a great addition to the craft supplies...

*holds out my glass*

And not just glue, but glues! White school glue, like Elmers, and E6000, and fabric glue, and gluesticks. Liquid scuply and acrylic sealer and spray on clear top coat. Yep. And of course they're all necessary!

I find it amusing that not all my friends do not have two boxes in their living room dedicated to wee house supplies...

I have one box of the tools, glues, etc. and the other with stuff to use in or on the house...

...and, uh, white wine is a valuable and much used crafting supply
