    Dear Miniature Enthusiast,

    The big news this month has been reports from Chicago of the Greenleaf Gang taking the windy city by storm. Several members of the Greenleaf Forum met up in person at the mini show in Chicago and from all reports, a great time was had by all! You can catch up on the chatter about the show here or visit the home page for Greenleaf Dollhouses to see the Greenleaf Gang's picture. Thanks KathieB for keeping us informed and for the great picture!

    Dollhose Kit Bashing Your House, Your Rules: Kit Bashing
    By Deb Roberts

    To bash, or not to bash, that is often the question. We fall in love with a kit and think 'it would be perfect if only it had a slightly different porch, or an extra room, or just a little more space on the first floor. Over and over, miniaturists are heard to say that they'd love to bash a house but they're intimidated by the thought of modifying a kit.

    Make Dollhouse Furniture Paperclay Leaf Furniture Tutorial
    By Deb Roberts

    Finding fantasy furniture isn't always easy to do, but our elves and fairies need cozy furnishings too. It's been said that necessity is the mother of invention and in the miniature world, which often leads to delightful, original creations. The leaf furniture that is featured in this tutorial was created for a fairy cottage but it could be used in any forest setting. It's also easily adaptable for 1:24 scale.

    March Quick Tip
    By Wolfie

    When I'm finishing up my furniture pieces, especially those made of paper or cardboard (like the folding screen in my gallery) I take a ball of waxed paper, all crumbled up - the real wax paper - and rub-a-dub-dub all over it, and it leaves a lovely sheen like furniture has when it is waxed with paste wax.

    Boone and Bobo The Critter Corner!
    Dogs need Minis too!

    Or maybe minis need dogs. Either way, Boone and Bobo have taken up company for the night. Boone seems to be quite content with his mini friend at his side for companionship while he waits for his human to turn down the covers. Thanks PrairieGurl for sharing this adorable picture with us. Boone will receive a $25 gift certificate from Petsmart for being featured in our April Critter Corner.

    If you'd like to submit your pet's picture for consideration for the Critter Corner, you can upload pictures in the "Good Pets acting bad!" or "Good Pets acting cute!" galleries at the Greenleaf Forum.
