Thank you, all... especially for the squealing.  Cheesy

alwaysinmyroom, I have not tried the coated Kodak paper -- this was such a new venture for me, I was wingin' it.  Cheesy  But now that you mention it, I think I do have a pack of photo paper around here... (glances around room) somewhere...

One thing I forgot to mention -- the "stems" on the plants? False eyelash clusters.  I discovered these when I was wandering around a pharmacy one day (waiting for a 'scrip to get filled) and started using them for plant stems in my 1/144 houses (think vases with flowers).  I love using them... natural looking and perfectly teeny.

In the world of 1/144, they call it "Micro Eye Syndrome" (MES).

It's where whenever you see a tiny thing (false eyelashes, confetti, price tag holders), you immediately wonder what 1/144 object you could turn it into.  Cheesy

The woman who found a 1/144 scale wine bottle hiding in a particular type of price tag holder is my hero. I used them in my dia de los muertos matchbox shrine:

Now I want to see the price tag holder, plain!

Amazing, as always. I love that your wicked side saw a challenge and embraced it. The house is adorable! Thanks for the tip about coating the paper with glue before printing. I never would have thought about that.

Love your work!

OK, wow, that's impressive.

You miniature people (or should I say "people who do miniatures") are so creative!
