For the room boxes!

I got my room box drying at the moment. Didn't think to take pictures because my phone was close to dead…. By tomorrow i will be able to wallpaper and out the floor in! Not sure if I should do stairs or leave a hole in the floor or what…..maybe just paper over the seem?
 I want a big kitchen somewhat and with the spiral stairs that would take up some room that i don't want to give up….

I want to do a beautiful stain glass piece for the window upstairs.. Not sure how to go about that. Maybe plastic from a doll box or electronic box and then use some of my stain glass paint and then glue it in place? Thats the only way i believe that it would look like stained…. That and i still need to remember that my upstairs is creepy along with a little of the downstairs but not to the point were i can't even look at it without being creeped out!

imgres.jpg THis image on google reminds me of the kitchen similar to what i want to do with my first floor on the room box….. I hope the fridge I have fits inside the house… I really like putting little goodies in my dollhouse and its not really a kitchen without a fridge is it?

See you tomorrow <3

Getting Back into Miniatures!

Seems like I have been gone for ages! I have been a little busy with school work and being an adult making some money… Having no time that I feel crafty. So I have been getting inspiration from some videos on youtube!
My room box is going to be an Alice in Wonderland theme along with Wizard of Oz! Two of my favorite movies! Im going to also try and make a little room that has like a wizard/ witch apprentice in it! Just because i really like the creepy look. So its not going to be all cute of wizard of oz and the normal alice in wonderland! Its going to be more demented! Not just because of Halloween. I have been saving up and planning this for a year now! This is the room box I have purchased!
I bought it off of Amazon and it should be here by Tuesday!!! Im thinking maybe if I do room boxes my ADHD won't kick in! Cross your fingers!
I also have some scrapbook paper that I'm going to use for the walls, while the floor is going to be wooden like my Mckinley was! I still really loved that freaking floor. Even if the Mckinley is no longer with me! RIP
This demented cartoon funny I found while looking up Wizard of Oz has inspired me to no end! The top floor is going to be the demented area while the bottom is normal. Kind of like if you have ever watched Hansel and Gretel. My favorite childhood book of all time. Im going to incorporate the fact that the kitchen (yes kitchen because all my room boxes need food…) is going to look normal and cute in a creepy way. There might be a few things that will throw people off when they look closer to the room box :) Im just real excited!
 If I only had a Brain! A heart! and then how do you get the courage? Well. I will show you step by step when the supplies come!It may be a little evil! Poor little pet shop lion!

 There pictures i found on google images have inspired me to make some dollhouse cookies and drinks. Not sure i will get them to look that pretty but I will sure be trying! So something similar will definitely help!
This clock is amazing!
Wish me luck in trying to recreate the look of the clock in miniature! if not I think polymer clay should work as well.

Wish me luck! I will try and keep my process in better shape this time!

McKinley week 4

Starting work again... I had it for sale no offers so maybe if I just fix it up a little more finish the little things and patch works. Today im going to get the tower roof on along with trying to fix the open area in the kitchen that was suppose to be the bay window. Since i didnt reslly like it I took it off.

Here is a picture of it from a few days ago.... Icky lighting. Sorry, everything was packed up also since yet, again this is what the for sale picture looked like. Glad i kept it since some of he furniture I couldnt part with. I might as well sell it empty.

Other projects are coming up. Im sorry im really a bad blogger since i dont take pictures as much as i should:/ i only have my ipad on me. My mom has a laptop but, its a very slow computer!

I really want to do this as a supprise for my mom! Found this on ne of the yahoo mni clubs im in! Houses mini projects.

The reason i was to do this is because she has a shelf in the laundry room by the washer and drier. Also note she has the drawers on the bottom of her appliances to hold the soap and stuff. So the shelf isnt really used. If i make this for her she will love it!

Fairfield update day 1

Ok its really day two but, I thought about starting a day to day since I found some mojo :) I took all the pieces of wood out of the box yesterday glued the foundation together. Right now I'm waiting for the floor to dry since I stained the first, second and attic floors a English chest nut color.

After that I started working on the fireplace, someone I read on a blog. Forgot her name sorry! She said to finish the fireplace and decorating the stairs with rails after the main structure is put together. Not all the way though. So I'm working on getting a white lime stone colored finish with silver, black, white and some water.... hope this works out!

Also Uploaded a video of how the construction of the Fairfield is going so far. If you want to check that out my username for YouTube is Darahsmile! so my two day video will be up there.

The McKinley video will be up hopefully today.... If it is well that's lucky for you if you saw it that means I found more of my mojo or ooof for the day :) so talk to you soon bye! Ok I didn't publish it when I said BYE so I filmed the McKinley.. It isn't the best of the best but, it works for not or until I have people asking for a more detailed video then I will go into detail. Is hearing your voice on film weird? I hate my voice I guess ha-ha! well I'm stuck with it! Well im editing the video so by the time Im done maybe no one will have seen my blog till its uploaded if not sorry about that, Im working hard on it as we speak!

Inspiration to get up...

I need to get up and scrap the 2 1/5 of the walls left... Im just not wanting to...

I always go no i need to do this and that but, im the one that my parents are wating on, since it would be easier to spackle/ fix the gouges i put in the walls from scraping! Well i really cant wait to show more of the finished product, all i have righ now is some white flat wall some pokey walls and one ugly floor... Sorry to those who like it :/ i didnt mean to hurt your feel goods...

East and west walls will be like a turquios color,
The ceiling will be a baby blue similiar to this color!
The north and south wall, ( closet and window) small room darker color, so small walls with a dark color cant hurt the feel of the room that much!
And the wood tile block puzzle floor, sorry trying to describe what they are! Similair to this color and look will go onto the floor!

No closet doors but instead curtains will go up to cover it up.

Ive also organized my earring studs that wouldnt fit,( they kept falling off) my new jeweley organizer my sister got me for christmas! Picture of the one i was gifted!
It hangs on the wall or behind your door, very convenent!
The organizer is from lady elegance, wonderful for hanging earrings such as hoops and feathers, knecklaces, bracelets, and rings.
Picture of the framed one i made with a frame, hard yarn block square things from walmart and some white felt from walmart. This was free since i had all the items already in stock! It would have been around $8? Possibly $10 depends on the picture frame and how much yarn block you need and felt!
Well more up dates on the room soon, sorry ive been busy with the room construction, ocd doesnt do well with a messed up living area! Its more important right know... :/

Took a trip!

No minis were boughten.

I have been blogging sorry.. Im not good with the whole holiday/school/ business consept of being s blogger. But, yet im trying!

Any way i have some things to say!
Im redoing my bedroom, i have this texture on my walls that feels like mountains very jagged mountains that really hurts when you scrap you arm on it... Any way i have to water it down to make it soft and then you this scrapping tool to get it off, it only almost a 12x12 room. So at least its smaller then most rooms people have!

After i finish this im going to have my did fix the gouges un the walls ans smooth it out flat in some spots. Them my mom loves to paint," its the cheapest way to change the mood of a room." Two walls chocolate brown and then two walls turquiose and the ceiling a light blue! Also we are going to change the out of date flooring, its a very old looking laminant tile floor, blue and gold.... No so going for a hippie theme.... Any way im also going to get a new closet.. Ok not new but a new set up, like what closet made makes, but my dad probably has to make one since my closet is small and i cant reach every thing, "sort people problems!!"

Im sorry it looks messy, its under construction! :( i hate that, but pictures when its more in progeress with the wall shaved and flattened nicely, then painted and oh i cant wait, it would be easier if i was working on a miniature since well it doesnt take as much work, but it takes way more planning, haha:)

Yep, wizard of oz billplay! Loved the musical! And movie top four movies, alice and wonderland, gremlins, wizard of oz and zombieland! I have zombieland and gremlins in my movie library on the movie stand but, the others im not sure, i want to get them but, my walmart is not so wonderful, it has almost all movies when there on the shelf is the thing, there is nothing on the shelf due to oil pigs... Not a good town to be in, i wanna movie, well i have half of junior year and then senior year left and off the college i can go:) so i should just chill....
The color theme is going to totally change from green and red and ever other color i just decided i wanted in there. Like my cleaning products? Yeah there is my ocd for the blog! I dont share my cleaning items because, well i want them were i can find them, when people use them they will be gone forever in this house!a
I wish you could look at this dresser better, the white looking one, i want to paint it, but my mom said that the paint might just come right back off... I really want to paint the damn thing is gold and well chrome, silver and gold. Do not match in a room.... Just saying, oh thats my college interior designer coming out, thats what i want to be when i go to college!
You have no clue how many pieces the mirror came out of the room in... The people who had this house before us. Well they thought it was a wonderful idea to i dont know, liquid nails the mirror onto the wall. So it took a lot of brakeing and prying to get it off.

By the way we went shopping for a new bedding in bed bath and beyond! Wow never been in one, but i know im going back when i get my apartment! My top and bottom bunk will match! Well the comforter isnt the same as the one in the picture tho, sorry for false advertisement, i got that on at walmart.

We also did a lot more shopping and eating, i love famous daves and ihop! Never get the chocolate chip pancakes tho, they were like only chocolate pancakes no flour or anything but chocolate, im not a big fan of chocolate soo when i say the plate i could only eat half of a pancake till i was like i done.

Well i better go now since we just got back from the trip and i havent slept in over 16 hours!
Those were ideas for this painting, i need help picking, or should i do a magazine collage!?
