I think I just might have to take part in the little contest! I looked up the model kit used for it, locally it's being sold for $40, not too bad.

I've started on my Churchmouse House...







That black tape is just holding things in place while the glue dries.

I've realized with this house that I actually only use about a dozen of the pieces in the kit! I'll find a use for those left overs, but I'm thinking I just might make a template for myself. These kits are pain in the rump to find.

LOL, I was wondering what in the heck was up with that tape. Figured if anybody could make that look like something good it would be you, ha ha.
I sure do hope you'll participate in that contest Knicker. Did you see the prize kit? Oh my word, what a HOUSE! Now that could be made into something astonishing. Just WOW. Best of luck to anybody who gives it a go, hope one of you Craftsters wins!

I saw a picture somewhere with a mouse in a chair reading a book. It got me thinking of making a Christmas mouse house. Maybe with a mouse reading The Night Before Christmas by the fire. I plan to start on it this friday. I still have to decide on the basics though, like paper or paint. Because it is a mouse house I will be using some life sized, "borrowed" items too.

I have made a few things for the larger house; a crocheted rag rug and a sofa picture. I also have a fireplace from an old set.

I finished my first house. It is a tiny little thing.



The furniture is not to scale. I wanted the mouse to be life size, like he just took up habitat in a dolls house. That meant things had to be sparse. It would look better with a little bigger house or if I kept it one story.

 I made the arm chair from cardboard padded with sticky felt, and then covered it with fabric. It could use some trim to finish it off. The foot stool is from a sliver of cork with a covered button on top. The table was from a kit but I had to shorten the legs. The bed is cardboard and a thin sheet of wood. I through the tree together until I can trim something from outside.

I am a huge fan of spackle...my husband buys it by the big 5 gallon tub now since he also uses it for his art...

The church is wonderful!

ysmeine--what an adorable mouse house!  I like how you used part of a sweater for the cover on the bed!

Your church is really looking nice. Is that an egg carton stone finish?

I got rid of the large chair, centered the bed upstairs and left just the tree, foot stool and small table below. It looks better. I kept trying to make a chair because of the picture that inspired me. I think it looks more balanced now.
