  1. Optimistic Newbie from Las Vegas

    Yu should have a great time with that house.
  2. Good to see old friends are still here.

    Missed you all and wondered how the minis were going.  Such nice work!  I'm finally healthy and retired now.  Hope to find time to complete the house that had to wait.  
  3. Funny how things can change.

    Yes to both, and be prepared to get distracted.  
  4. Hi to all old friends and looking forward to meeting the new ones since I've been gone.  Lots of little projects have been done--can't wait to see them all.    
  5. Pebble foundation sample

    I did this with the Orchid, and it lasts better if you prime the base.  Live and learn after picking little stones off the floor after 6 months.
  6. 1/2 Scale RTG Craftman Bungalow

    So do I! (Love the photo.)
  7. Mat board buffet

    Well done!
  8. Odd scale differences - side view

    The rocker looks big to me.
  9. Cat & Dog

    Another triumph!
  10. Trimming the walls

    Eye-catching trim.
  11. They've gotten so big and darling, too!
  12. Dear Abby letter

    I read that letter today, too, and feel for the grandmother. Some kids are so insecure they have to have expensive (not necessarily good) things to show off. The daughter missed a chance to teach her little girl about manners, creativity, and limited means. Such an omission. I hope the daughter never hits hard times. She won't know how to cope. On a better note, I never knew if my kids appreciated the things I'd made for them until my daughter's baby shower 18 months ago. I gave her a bear, a giraffe, a small soft Nessie (Lochness monster) all home made. One of the guests kind of gushed about where the toys were purchased, and my daughter said "Oh, my mom makes them. She's the bomb with toys." My (indifferent) son has made scale houses/car garages for all of his kids because he still has the barn we made together when he was little. Warmed me top to toe.
  13. Plz help newbie with a trade :(

    Have you contacted your 4-H group for a member(s) to help you assemble the kit? Lots of the kids need projects and do not have the funds to obtain materials.
  14. What are you up to today? This week?

    Why can't you have a computer at work?
