Thanks for the information ladies.

On my way to the craft store so I'll pick up a bottle while there. I've used Aleene's for other projects but wasn't sure about using it on the dollhouse.

I liked the wood glue I used in my wee house.  It seems a bit stronger and less flexible when dry than the Tacky Glue.  I used blue tape to hold things together while the glue dried.  I did have a few issues with the wood glue dripping after I left it alone, but so far, everything is holding together.

I do use the tacky glue for almost everything paper -- the flexible when dry is the key thing there.

A church sounds like it's going to be interesting to work on.

Are you going to do any certain denomination?

Next on my list after I get these 2 started, is a Pagan Altar....just have a few projects to complete before my daughter hangs me. Maybe a copy of mine or a of the altar from my grandson Naming Ceremony. We have a monthly project challenge and I am 2 behind. Grrr! Can't wrap my head around them but it has been buried in doing my studio over...3rd time was the charm.

The two kits I just purchased...I just noticed the house is 1/2" scale and I've only ever worked in 1" scale. I love the house and it fits the theme perfectly but wondering about changing scale. Does anybody work in both scales and is adapting to the smaller scale difficult? Hoping to get started on it this week but wondering if I should exchange it for 1" scale...or just tough it out and challenge my patients. lol!

It'll be church-ish, not an actual church... probably more like a church mouse house Wink

I've done different scales and didn't really find it difficult moving from one to another BUT I also don't go by exact scale and just sort of eye everything.

Does anyone have experience making rugs? I was thinking either crochet or macrame would be a good way to go with it because I don't think I would have the patience for the tiny cross stitching. Or maybe some felt?

In the past I've done mine with Igolochkoy or Russian Punchneedle and use transfers from this book: Miniature Iron-on Transfer Patterns for Dollhouses, Dolls, and Small Projects.

They work fairly quickly after you've done your first one and gorgeous as they look like real rugs.

If anyone is still looking for a house or your new and didn't get one yet, I got my online from Wayfair.com. I've ordered loads of items from them and everything is superior. The shipping wasn't pricey either. I placed my order on Wednesday night and they were delivered on Thursday afternoon. Quick! The prices are really good also. And some of the houses are Free Shipping right now.

I got this house which is going to be my project house. Regular price $95 and I paid $52.

and this which is going to be a Gypsy Trailer...which was $45 and I paid $22.

Also I had to make a quick trip to town for supplies, as I'm right in the path of Hurricane Sandy, she is expected to make landfall a few blocks from my house. I went in the Dollar Store and found miniature furniture in the girls toy department. They only had dining room furniture...table, server and hutch but no chairs. But for a dollar I couldn't pass it up. They are a strange red in color but easily hacked. Thought you ladies might be interested...oh and gentlemen if we have any in the group.
