Moving Right Along . . .

While I may not be keeping my promise to myself to blog more often, I AM steadily working on the doll house.

It is a slow going project as I often have to wait for paint or glue to dry.

I am enjoying the building part much more than I expected to.

However, I have learned that I do not like painting tiny little things like porch railings.

It is a very fun project and I'm already purchasing some decor for the outside like door knobs and a porch swing. Next step: drawing the lines for the roof shingles. :)

New Year, New Project

Happy New Year. :) I've neglected my blog a lot lately and have made it one of my resolutions to post more, craft more and take more photos.

Speaking of resolutions, a few years ago I bought a doll house. It's been sitting in the basement since then ( yes for FIVE years) and I've finally decided it's time. So one of my New Year's resolutions is to build the doll house. I'm off to a great start:

Step one is to paint the outside and all of the trim.

I'm using Safari Green by Glidden for the main house. For the trim I'm using Ballet Slipper and Aegean Blue by Martha Stewart Living. I've ordered the stain for the roofing shingles and hardware for the door. I ordered them from this fabulous site. This will be a big project and I'm expecting a lot of cursing to go along with it but I'm looking forward to the challenge. The kit I'm using is Allison Jr. from Real Good Toys. It says it's an easy to assemble model. I can only imagine the more difficult ones. :)

Wish me luck!
