  1. E - Neglected

    From the album Spring Fling 2013 - Grandpa's Cabin in the Woods

    Nature began to reclaim its own, and the basement door was almost hidden by bushes. Martin noticed the old wagon wheel, and remembered the family legend about his grandfather and uncle being stranded.

  2. D - Family Fortunes

    From the album Spring Fling 2013 - Grandpa's Cabin in the Woods

    Then the Great Depression hit (Grandpa lost all his money), followed by WWII, and the cabin was used less and less. The kids grew up and started their own families. Finances were tight but Grandpa always kept the taxes paid.

  3. A - Set in a Cabinet

    From the album Spring Fling 2013 - Grandpa's Cabin in the Woods

    This build is set in a cupboard, so the back and right sides are not visible. I added a back wall to the house, and the roof is removable for access and better visibility.

  5. L - Memories

    From the album Spring Fling 2013 - Grandpa's Cabin in the Woods

  6. J - Imagination?

    From the album Spring Fling 2013 - Grandpa's Cabin in the Woods

    He looked in again. His imagination must be running away with him! All seemed to be in order.

  11. 09 Stairway

    From the album Micro Georgian Townhouse

    After giving the stairways a base coat of white paint, I added the red "carpet" to the top side. Also painted the railings gold.

  13. 4th Layer

    From the album Room Box for My Sister

    The final layer is the rest of the original picture. I have made, and painted, wood framing to glue over the printed framing when this is in the last stages.

  15. Two Redheads

    From the album Room Box for My Sister

    Both my sister and I have red hair, and we are about 12 years apart, so I bought these dolls to put in the roombox. The younger girl came with red hair, but the older one (bought 2 of each) was a blond. So I repainted the hair.

  16. 3rd Layer

    From the album Room Box for My Sister

    I then put a piece of foam core on top of the picture, painting the inside framing a dark brown so it wouldn't show white anywhere. I have hollowed out a couple of chanels and run electric wires through the top of the foamcore, leaving 2 LED lights to shine down into the "kitchen" ...

  17. Furnished Cabin

    From the album Room Box for My Sister

    This cabin came with a dividing wall, but since I was wiring it, I didn't want to use it. I added the fireplace, sink/stove cupboard, and a bed. I was aiming for a sofa but after I got it in there it looked too big - so it's a bed!

  18. 2nd Layer

    From the album Room Box for My Sister

    I cut around the second doorway, removing it from the main picture, and adhered it to the top of the cardboard, lining up with the back doorway...

  19. Miniature leather chaise longue

    From the album More minis I've made

    I've made a few chaise longues recently for my Etsy shop. This one was made from a different kit made of mahogany and I decided to cover it with leather - my poor fingers can tell you a tale. I rather like this one and am wondering if it will fit in my next project so I may keep this one for myself.
  20. H - Wall Calendar

    From the album The Borrowers in Washington

    Just made a calendar for my Borrowers Book - I took a screenshot of my Outlook Calendar (the little one on the side panel), took that intoa new label file in Print Shop, selected a picture from my files (this is one I took near our house last winter), made the top picture the same size as the bottom calendar - grouped them all together and exported the .jpg - and voilà, a current calendar for my mini! This is for a large wall-calendar, so it's 7/8"w X 1 5/8"h. By printing it on an address label it's pre-glued for easy sticking - and address-label paper is heavier and nicer than regular paper.

  21. D - Funishings

    From the album The Borrowers in Washington

    I removed one of the cupboard doors so the shelves would be visible. The Borrowers have pilfered quite a few things for their living quarters.

  22. G - Gilt Edging

    From the album The Borrowers in Washington

    I printed the gilt-edging onto glossy photo paper to cover the 3 sides of the box.

  23. AA - Outside Covers

    From the album The Borrowers in Washington

    I've glued the covers onto the front, back, and binding side of the box, making it look like a book. The front-cover picture is of my little 1:144 Pumpkin House.

  24. C - Michael's Store Hutch

    From the album The Borrowers in Washington

    This is a simple piece of miniature furniture from Michael's Craft Store - nothing fancy.
