I make the monsters in my mind real.

I saw the little stump fairy house posted here and realized I never shared my Mouse House! Its a little dollshouse that's sort of built into a hollowed out log/tree stump that I made from scratch. I used Paper Mache hat boxes as a base and built the walls from foam core. The bark is made from lightweight plaster and a special concoction I created from various products to make it super light yet incredibly strong and sturdy. Then Of course I hand painted it to get it to resemble tree bark as closely as possible. I think it turned out pretty good! It has three levels which are all stackable and detachable for easy decorating and general mobility. Still working on a way to put lights in it, if I ever get it right, I'll post pics of it lit up.

I was also experimenting/getting the hang of needle felting and I made a tiny mouse to live in it!  Enjoy!

Wow! And a felted mouse too! This is so fun and creative. Very realistic and I just want to move in. The little mouse is so realistic too. Fantastic job.

It's so realistic.  I particularly like the way the tree rings came out.  I would love to see more of the furnishings if you've finished them.  Great job!!!

This is so cute. Great job. Love the detail and what you've put into it. Gosh!!!! The detail. The bark, the little mouse (incredible on its own) the moss, the entrance....well, everything. Love it!

Outstanding piece!  Both the mouse and the tree's exterior look super realistic--I'm sure it'll only become even more impressive as you continue to add decorations and furniture in the future.

Oh wow. This is really wonderful work. I love the hard architectural lines mixed with the organic log. The mouse is wonderfully made too. Very, very nice work.
