  2. Hello Everyone!

    Welcome Anastasia Your doll is fabulous. I have seen the patterns on Esty and have been tempted to give them a try.
  3. How was the Tooth Fairy revealed to you?

    At 10 I pretty much knew there was no such thing as the tooth fairy, Santa etc......Kids are brutal and will spoil the mystery to kids who still believe. I think honesty is the best thing. Don't put it off, just tell her the truth and ask her not to spoil it for her sister. Kids will tease her if she adamantly says that there is a tooth fairy etc....

    Looking good! You are getting closer to the finish line.
  5. Off to the (red) brick road...

    This is such a pretty build. I love shopping for fabrics, so many color combos that I never would have imagined together.

  10. Beacon Hill Christmas Gift

    Hello Jenny Look at the schematic sheets and label the individual pieces in pencil. I usually put the sheet number on the piece and if there is room on the piece I write its name. BEWARE, sometimes the directions will use an abbreviated name then the what is on the schematics sheet and vice versa.... Identify sheet #1, look at the schematics then label before you punch them out. This will help you to become familiar with the pieces and instructions. I only punch out the pieces as they are called for. If one should come out by mistake, I place it in a plastic zip lock bag labeled with the sheet number on the bag. Stay as organized as you can . Take some deep breaths, you can do it! Here is a blog that might help you too.https://moreminis.blogspot.com/2017/09/the-beacon-hill-dollhouse-blog.html
