Paper Minis- Un-boxing

I am so excited to share the wonderful gift that Ann from Paper Minis sent to me! It was a thank you for all the videos I have done using her kits for the larger 18” dolls on my other channel.

I am totally blown away by how generous she was! I am going to be very busy putting together all of these kits. And you guys know I am going to have to turn on the camera and take you all along on at least some of them.

So the other purpose of this video is to find out which of the kits you all want to see me put together first. So eveyone please chime in and let me know which ones to do first.

And be sure to visit Ann's site and have a look around. She has so many wonderful kits to make things for the dolls.

Dollhouse Miniature Christmas Tree Ornaments

This week I am showing you how to make some simple ornaments for the Christmas Tree in your dollhouse. These are really quick and simple to make and take just a few tools and materials. You will find that if you sit down with your supplies you can get a bunch done in just one sitting, maybe even enough to decorate the mini Christmas tree.

These also look super cute in an ornament box in your mini scene.

Sorry that both the video and the blog post are so short. This last week we got hit with a massive wind storm that took out my power and also took off a bunch of roof shingles. Most everything is fixed but it took a lot of my time and I still have a lot of clean up to do.

Toystore Tour

This week I decided to dust off the Toystore and let you all have a look around at how it looks right now. Please ignore the mess in the background. We currently have several leaks in the roof and stuff is piled all over to keep it out of danger from the water. I am also tripping over several containers that are sitting in strategic spots to catch the drips. I will be very happy when the roof guys finally get to us, they keep telling me that we are “on the list”

Overall the Toystore has held up rather well I have not touched it in a couple of years and it has withstood a couple of wild weather years. The area it sits in gets really hot and really cold depending on what Mother Nature throws our way so I know that will cause damage over time. On the bright side it is not in a spot that is in direct sunlight.

I am really happy with how well the cover has kept out the dust and grim from just sitting in a busy area. The inside is very clean especially when you look at how long it has sat there.

The floor upstairs has come loose from the wood but a bit of adhesive should fix that quickly.

I tried to turn on the lights for the intro of the video but they seem to be failing so I will have to investigate that.

I think the only things I did after the video series finished was to put in the few shelves I showed in the video. If you want to see how to do those be sure to comment and let me know.

I took pictures of all the items I have for the store, now I need to figure out how to best display them. I would love suggestions from all of you on that. So if you have ideas let me know. I would love to hear what you think about how to best display them.

I also will probably need to make more toys but I want to wait to see how much room I will have.

The upstairs I think I want for a combination office/toy workshop but I am not sure. Again if you have ideas be sure to let me know.

Here are photos of the items I have- I hope you enjoy looking at them:
