Hello and Welcome New Followers!

March has flown by for me....I haven't posted in quite awhile and I do apologize for being so late in welcoming all of my new followers. I have had so many things I have wanted to post about and life just keeps getting in the way. I promise I'm going to try to do better! I have recieved some fabulous miniatures recently and I'll be posting some pictures of those soon. I have a lot of new swap pictures to add to my website. I've been working on my 333 Franklin lately and have a few pictures to post of some things I have made for it. I still have more trash to treasure goodies to add. I won some mini furniture from The Dollhouse Company so I'll be posting about that. I've been working on my work room, doing a lot of organizing and making labels with my new label maker. I've been working on some new projects to add to my site and I'll be adding a new element to my's a secret so I can't share it yet. I will also be re-opening the Miniature Barter Board as soon as I finish working out some bugs. I also recently joined MECA Mini Forum, Miniature Enthusiasts, Craftsmen & I needed one more place to play on the internet. LOL!

I couldn't resist!

I really tried! Like many others, I purchased a dollhouse from HBS during the 50% off sale. I bought the Willow, a Colonial style dollhouse, even though I am currently working on three dollhouse at the same time and have two kits still in boxes. I need to have my head examined! I don't even have a place to put anymore dollhouses, but I'm not letting that stop me, I'll just get rid of our furniture if I need to, we can sit on the floor. =) Right?

I would like to tell everyone about a new website, AmanSpeak Miniatures. The owner/artist Amanda, creates scrumptious 1:12 scale dollhouse food. Please pop over and have a look!

I've been working on the 333 Franklin lately, I'm making it a Diner with living quarters above. I'm going for an aged look so I have been researching aging techniques. This morning I found some great articles by Pat and Noel Thomas in several old Nutshell News magazines. One of the articles was about how to make the Chrysnbon bathroom kit look like porcelain and how to age it. I'm very excited to have found that!

I see that I have several new followers, Hello, Welcome and Thank you for following! I'll be back to give you a proper welcome in a separate post!
