Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and Santa bought you lots of Mini's. (I got nothing dolls house related but did get some lovely presents so I must have been a good girl this year)

I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year, and may it bring all that you have wished for.

I don't really make New Year Resolutions as I'm rubbish at keeping them but if I did make some for 2011 it will be to try and Blog more together with completing my dolls house and putting more of my miniature designs into action and get them on Etsy.

As soon as I've got over the flu, the first of my beds will be going on Etsy which I've not used before so it will be a all new learning experience.

Have you got any resolutions?

A Mini Modern House

The reveal date for our forums THING is here and I can reveal what I have spent the last few weeks working on, but only if you don't tell my daughter as it is one of her Christmas presents.

It started life as a red roofed childrens dolls house like this one but with broken furniture.

After many coats of paint I managed to get it white and then I turned to repairing improving and  repainting all the furniture. I added a sink to the bathroom unit and carpet to the bedroom and living room, together wih lights in all rooms.

Reveal Date Looming

Every year usually more than once a year, a group of friends all work on a top secret THING, I haven't joined in much before as I haven't had the time but this year I have as my THING is doubling up as one of my daughters Christmas presents.

On the lead up to the reveal date we tell each other clues and we all have to try and guess what the others have made. This reveal date is this weekend so I have been working hard to get it all done and all I can say is I never want to see another pot of white paint again. It has taken so many coats its unbelievable.

My clues to my THING are
Leaped Print
Not Christmas but may have a hint of it.

I can't give you any more than that now until the weekend but once I have revealed it I will out it here for you all to see as well.

Feel free to add your guesses here...

Spike's Brother and Sister Have Safely Arrived!

Spike is a very happy teddy this morning as his brother Buster and Sister Lucy have arrived from Bearcabinminiatures and he has happily been showing them around their new home.

Spike decided because he was there first he is going to have the comfy bed and sent Lucy and Buster off to find there own places to sit.

Lucy very quickly decided that she  would like to sit by the window as she liked the flowers and was eager to know what goes on outside of the house

Buster took a little longer deciding where he was going to settle, he tried lots of seats and shelves out but eventually decided he didn't like heights so he chose to sit on the floor next to the fireplace and Elvis picture.

Soon Boy came over to see who had moved in and have a sniff

They have all settle in nicely now and after having a sneek peak back through the windows I thought Spike looks a bit lonely upstairs on his own, but he assures me he's happy

Whilst down stairs Lucy and Buster where deep in conversation
