    Holiday Miniatures!
    November 2007

    Dear Miniature Enthusiast,

    The holidays are approaching! We know that's not exactly a newsflash, but we just get so excited about the holidays that we had to say it. We all know the best thing about minis during the holidays is a box with the Greenleaf label under the tree, but the next best thing is decorating and celebrating in our little worlds.

    Oh, and while you're watching holiday movies this year, keep an eye out for 'The Santa Clause' movies. If you watch closely in the scenes of Santa's workshop, you'll see some familiar dollhouses going by! (Some of us have a theory that those scenes were filmed at the Greenleaf factory but we haven't been able to get a confirmation about that.)

    Happy Holidays!

    Christmas Minis Christmas Mini in Minutes!
    By Deb Roberts

    We all know how hectic the holiday season can be and how little time there is for minis. We also know how much we miss that mini-time we crave. Let's face it, too much time without minis and we get cranky. The holidays tend to be stressful and we need that relaxing time when it's just us and our miniature creations.

    Seasonal houses need seasonal landscaping and sometimes snow is a hard look to imitate in scale. Here's a quick look at one technique to get that winter tone for your holiday house.

    This time of year, the sounds of the holidays are everywhere. In the malls, on the streets, no matter where you go, you hear holiday songs. Every third commercial on tv is for a holiday cd and the radio is playing non stop holiday tunes. But how often do you hear a holiday song for us miniaturists? We’ve come up with some catchy tunes for you to sing this season to express your joy of miniatures during the holidays. Who knows……..maybe they’ll catch on and next year, everyone will be singing joyous songs about minis!

    Novembers Quick Tip
    From Darrell's Electrification Guide

    Save those little jelly jars from the gift packs you receive this year. The little jars are perfect for storing tiny pieces such as brads for wiring. See more of Darrell's Dollhouse Electrification tips!

    Milo The Critter Corner!
    "I see you!"

    As Maddie peers into the window of this Pierce, she seems to be agreeing with her owner Kellee that the house does need a little work. Now we have to wonder if Maddie will be participating in the renovation projects. Is it difficult to wallpaper when you don't have thumbs?

    Thank you Kellee for sharing such a great picture of Maddie with us! Maddie will receive a $25 gift certificate from Petsmart for being the October Critter of the Month.

    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.
