  1. garage sale finds

    What a great find!
  2. Paper minis

    Those masks are too darn cute!
  3. Siding choices (Orchid)

    Great idea and way better than using hot glue as the instructions say to do.   I am working on the same house and have chosen to add batten boards like Stickyfingers did with hers. It reminds me of Cape May!
  4. Pros and Cons of the Cricut Maker

    I am also a paper crafter and have an older cricut machine. The newer versions do even more!!! Yes they can do everything in the above posts. These tools can cut tiny bags, hat boxes, shirt boxes, veggie boxes, Tiny banners, letters for signage, chipboard trim and shingles. If used properly they do cut clean and precise. They cut thin chipboard such as a cereal box easily as well as vinyl. The self adhesive vinyl works well when cutting small letters to place on plain metal buckets etc. If you design your own furniture, you can cut your patterns from chipboard with these machines too. That includes cutting lightweight fabrics for curtains, cushions, bedspreads etc.  If you take precise measurements, you can cut your wallpaper to the exact rectangle. They make great full size birthday banners and such too. I know I have missed some things since this was just off the top of my head. They are quite useful if you are willing to take the time to learn how to use them. There is a learning curve but they are easier to use than my old version. Watch lots of you tube videos and then decide.
  5. It is giving me trouble too!.

    I am going to email you a word document with the instructions once it is fixed. That may have been the problem you were having. I feel so bad for new people who want to share there pictures because it is not very user friendly. Once you do it a couple of times it is easy.

    Make sure your picture size is not too large. It won't take them.

    You can resize them for free at picresizer.com. I can help you with that if you run into problems.

  6. gingerbread done.jpg

    Love the way they turned out!!!!!
  7. What's everyone working on?

    Pretty! I like the applique on the gables.
  8. Slippers

    Love those slippers! Such wonderful detail!
  9. Help me pick the Casa's bed!

    That's a very pretty bed! This is so much fun when people post these questions. It's like phone a friend on whatever game show that is. The posts on the Camille just wouldn't work in that house. I am working with the same house right now. Love what you chose and thanks for showing me another great craftsmen.
  10. What are you up to today? This week?

    The best kind of minis smell good too!
  11. The Orchid Tea Room

    Has anyone ordered any of the wallpaper assortments from Miniatures.com? Have any feedback on the quality of their papers in general? The prices are great for those assortments. 18 sheets for $10. Starting miniatures from scratch is pricey so I really like their assortment price tag.
  12. MerrimackCentralStaircase.jpg

    I agree, it's perfect for the house. This style furniture really takes me back!
  13. Going to NYC & Gulliver’s Gate

    I just watched the video about GG and I think it's so cool! Can't wait to hear about the trip!
  14. Bug In My Kit?!

    Yes, there are a number of beetles lumped into the wood worm category and the holes are made after the larvae hatch and as they tunnel there way out. Funny the piece of furniture I have with the damage is a British piece. Anyway, with all that damage I wouldn't try and keep it. That's a hefty infestation and yes it could have happened at any time.
  15. FullSizeRender-27.jpg

    I like the muted jar of flowers best. Understated elegance for an elegant bath. What size cloth is your cross stitch? That towel is so wonderful!!!
