So Many Post!

Yes I know sorry for the posting upchuck +  but I’m only saving my content from another blog in order to link some older post.  In this process I made more work for myself + but I didn’t realize that changing my hosting site would be so cumbersome.  All of my previous content remained on […]

Hello!

This first project for my dolls was started March last year when I decided to try to find a suitable place to house them.  I began searching BJD blogs, random websites, Flickr, and just about anything I could lay my eyes on about how BJD owners were storing and keeping their dolls. I didn’t have […]

Project #1: Curtains

The next task on my project list could not be more easy. Or so I thought. Technically all it requires is some simple sewing, or hem tape.  Now….I can sew (somewhat), and I haven’t done that many projects on my kiddy sewing machine but I do grasp the concept.   It took me months to […]

Project #2: Pouf Seating

Hello again! I’m back this week with another project.  This week I’m making crochet pouf seating for my dollies.  I haven’t picked up my crochet hook in some time, but it comes easy to me.  I started crocheting when I was 12 (translation…long-long-long-long time ago.  I never finished anything.  I would create these long chains […]

Project #3: Side Table

This weekend I’m working on the more challenging task of making some furniture.  I’m going to attempt a coffee table and two side tables. Of course research began on Pinterest, Blogs, and other mediums to see what I could make at 1/4 scale.   I did check Etsy for supplies but found that what I […]

Project #4: Updates & Progress

I don’t know what it is about about a 4-day weekend, but for me it means kicking back and doing absolutely nothing.  However I didn’t want my little projects that I had planned to suffer because I wanted to be lazy.  I still managed to get some small things done, but, not what I planned […]

Project #5: Flooring

As you can see flooring won out on the project this week.  You know when you’ve looked at images and read things 20 times and everything starts to blur so you go back and read it 10 more times.  That was me this week trying to figure out how to tackle this project, and not spend […]

Project #5 Continued: Upper Level Floors Complete

I have finally finished just the top level of flooring.  Yes, yes I know…..I was supposed to tackle both levels but whew….what a bear, and cutting the peel and stick tile ruined every blade that I used to cut it.  Cutting planks was harder than I imaged, and knowing that I can’t cut anything strait […]

Project #5 Wrap Up: Floors Done!

Yes finally the floor project is done + I mean really + or almost done + but just about done.  My shelf (contact) paper came in last week and I couldn’t wait to put it down.  I’ve used the same product on the ceilings so it was easy to install once you cut it to […]

Project #6.1: Paint Touch-Up + Decals + and Window Framing

This weekend I managed to do at least two things on my list of projects which was, touching up the foam core walls with chalk paint, adding some decals to one of the walls for decor, and cutting out a window and framing it from the inside. + In the past, I said that I wouldn’t tackle […]

Project #6.2: Little Details

It seems that nothing goes as planned when I’m working on my little diorama. + I know what I want to tackle next but things happen beyond my control so I can’t procure what I need to make that particular project happen. + I always assume that giving myself a week can work in most instances, but […]

Project #7: Lighting

My lighting for my dolly house is done, and I think this is the best project that I’ve done so far, and the easiest one yet. + I had so much fun hanging these little gems. + These would even work for a standing lamp or table lamp provided I can make or find the right […]

Project #8: Window Plant Box

Happy Sunday Everyone! This week I decided on a window box.  I thought about shelving glued to the foam core but I would really like to find some cheap wood, and the goal was not to spend any extra money this week on materials.  I figured a window box should be simple to create with […]

Project Interim: “Spring Cleaning”

This week is not such a mystery. + I’ve actually decided to do a bit of cleaning, and donate or give away some much needed items to make space for new ones.  It’s been such a gloomy weekend, and with no natural light it makes it even harder to get a good photo, so I […]

Project #9: Coffee Table Book *Update*

As promised I knew that I would continue this project off-line with better materials.  I purchased some small wood pieces (about 2.5″ by 3.5″) from Micheal’s.  I had just about given up when I found these in the wood ornaments section.  They were .29 cents each and they only had 25 so I purchased the whole […]

Side Project: A Little Extra

As fate would have it there just wasn’t time to get to my shelving, as you know #reallife comes a knocking, and I couldn’t get to where I needed to get my supplies. + So I searched around my place to see what had on hand.  I wanted to attach some hooks to one of […]

Project #10: Beginning the Prototype

I’m finally starting on my first bit of furniture, and I know this is going to be a a task. + I want my furniture to be made of wood, even though I plan on adding fabric to upholster them.  The hard part is making the prototype from foam core. + The first thing I […]
