  1. Simple enough question.. What have you purchased lately, or thinking of purchasing next and why? Please state specific item/s that you are currently working on/towards and your reasons and visions for that particular item/s.... Regards C
  2. So my husband bought home a lovely present of a summer cold, so I took a break from building today and moved on to some smaller activities. I had a light bulb come on when I was walking past my coffee table and looked at my big bowl of shells..... I rummaged through the bowl to find some appropriately sized ones (I even found a piece of coral) and made some decorator items out of them. Then I got on a roll and went through my jewelry findings for coastal themed items & my fabric stash for blue or nautical patterns.....Then I got distracted in my bead box and made some.. ok, a lot... of perfume bottles... This is what I came up with. No idea when I'll use these things as they don't fit in with the current planned decor for my San Franciscan... but I had fun anyway and I'm sure they'll turn up in a build one of these days....

  8. Tired of working on the structure already...

    From the album 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    So I started in on the accessories, several months early. 

 These are pegboards to be used for hanging tools on. You can see in this photo that I originally had a very tiny drill bit that was still too large for convincing scale pegboard holes, but I went out and found an even tinier drill bit and kept the line of quirky too-large holes to remind myself that, as the saying goes, "the perfect is the enemy of the good.

" I happily believe that...
  9. As promised, I have added to the complimentary downloadable project at my website. So far you'll find 'to do' note pads and thank you note cards with matching envelopes. Go to the 'New Products...' option found on the menu at I have each project available in 5 scales. You see photos of the largest scales. Unfortunately, I don't have the eyesight to make the 1:24 and 1:48 scales. Sorry! Ann at Here's the previous project 'to do' note pads
  10. Hi everyone, This is my first posting to the Community Trading Post. To introduce myself, my name is Ann and I am a paper engineer specializing in pre-printed kits for dolls and dollhouses. In order to introduce my line, I am offering a series of downloadable projects for a Victorian desk set (can double as fancy contemporary). These are free and I encourage you to share with your friends and on-line groups. The first project, The To Do List Notepad, is found in the top item on my website home page (file is more than 500kb). Just download it or open it and print. Of course the printout will only be as good as your print quality and not nearly as good as a Paper Minis pre-printed kit, but it will give you wonderful practice for the paper craft hobby. I will be adding a different desk item every couple of weeks so look here again. BTW, each is offered in 5 different scales, and as you can see from the photo I don't make the 1:24 and 1:48 because I can't see them! If you need to contact me, please send a PM. I hope you enjoy this wonderful pastime. Ann
  11. More downsizing

    I've been selling off most of my one inch scale things, houses and kits to focus on half scale I've listed a furniture and accessories "lot" on eBay for those who are interested
