  3. What's everyone working on?

    I am sorry too about the kitty, no magic words but I will think of you and you loss.   me, since I have been ill I have not been able to do any building but managed a coupe of carpets in cross. stitch My replacement shingles finally arrived  for Joe;s house and ,I did mask up and stain them, the smell has all gone now so I am waiting for a good day to attempt the rest of the shingles to finish it. but I still feel a bit weak to start working on a bigger house just now. I am a tad stronger each day buit I suspect I was a lot sicker than I realized, it has been nearly six weeks now and still not where I was . The Glencroft is glaring at me but I don't think I should be sanding just yet.

  5. Petite Properties

    Thank you for the help. I did buy all the books they had but I think some are no longer available, one I have mentions others that are not on the site I did send an e mail about them but no reply.This is the one thing I have noticed , they are slow to answer.. The little pieces look fascinating though Jenn do you build them then paint or in erverse

    Has anyone done any of these please. I have bought the 48 scale Memory Lane collection and the Cobblestone Snicket collection, I thought I would be able to manage the little ones better if I got ill again as I can do them on a tray. Some have arrived and some are en route. The quality looks very good and so many itsy bitsy pieces. I found the prices very reasonable as was the shipping. I also bought the few books they have and I can strongly recommend them, lots of great techniques for finishing and it was all made very clear. I didn't buy their paints..should I ? I would be most interested to see what folks have done with them here   XX Jeannine

  8. Cleaning out my stash...

    This reminds me of seed exchanges,we called them Round Robins.. I have been  involved in quite a few of them. Usually folks sign up for it, the person who starts the box fills it and send it to the next person. We had various ways of choosing who got the box next but a favourite was to not tell, ahead of time  just leave a message on the site with a clue who it was posted to and folks had to guess who it was going to, when it got it   they posted it had arrived, folks took out what they wanted and then put in  whatever  they wished. Sometimes there was a special bag inside for the organizer as a thank you. We usually has about 20 folks signed up and eventually the box got back to the original starter. We had them going to three or four countries and it was great delight seeing the different things folks put in. I could see it working well with mini's, XX Jeannine

  15. The Garfield project

    I am going to start working on  one of my Garfields soon and wondered who was at that point or close to it and .I wondered if we could support each other as we build them. If you are interested in joining let me know here. It is a big house and I think we all could benefit by the chance to work as a group. Thank you , By the way please notice I have changed my forum name and picture Jeannine
