Update week 3

I tore the lamp out... Dang it... But hey the fireplace looks amazing!
Added aged, going to have to age it again when i do the fence.
Aged the window! Looks amazing. I know looks like i added to much, but i like the look :)
I love it from the inside, i still need to but a light or lights for this laundry room...
Guess what finished the kitchen flooor! Heck yeah
Finished the carpet too. It sucks tho. I didnt like the out come. But i guess it still will look better once filled with things to cover up the not so good parts.
Lights are on! And Elli is sleeping in her room! She loves her house! She really cant wait for the garden roof to be done!
I need my ipad a cut of capachino and some strawberries! To sit buy the fireplace, well i just ordered a miniature ipad that will be coming soon! So Elli will be able to do that.. Thats just spoiled! Nah, just extra loved i think?
Yes i finished the fence, i should have done my 5 paragraph essay thats due Tuesday. But hey i can write it and type it tomarrow during study hall right?yes, i just couldnt stop mini-ing, this morning i didnt want to get off the couch from the hbs magazines but then i went to the craft room to put some yarn and other things i left laying in the living room thwt was suppose to be in the craft room. And well bam i was just tinkering around and ended up mini-ing and didnt stop till well what time did i post the blog? Well i better go try and get the super glue off my fingers.. Yeah i know, sarah why were you dumb anough to use super glue on miniatures. Well the floor wasnt drying quick anough, the fence wasnt holding and i ran out of painters tape that holds my wet wood were i want it... So i had to improvise. Well i only glued wood and my own fingers to my fingers. But know i have no super glue and no painters tape, i hope my mom or dad can find a stash of painters tape around somewhere. Especially since my mom hates painter tape to use while painting, she free hands, must be why i free handed the fireplace.... Oh yeah i need to go and wash the hands from super glue.

Fireplace and roof!

Well, i got the stain and wood done! Just for simple greenery in the cracks!
In the process of getting the fireplace in, well my lamps wires were taken out! Yeah wasnt happy. But i can move it into the laundry room know!... The fireplace has brick work that was painted on by me free handed! There is brick work inside where the fire would be too. I used chalk pastels and acrilic paints for the fireplace. The chalk was for blacking the soot from the fire and acrilic from the rest the red, black and white making the bricks look good.

Now i chsnged the living room floor so im changing the floor from wood to carpet. I wanted the carpet just because i dont want sll the rooms to have hardwood, this wouldnt be pleasing to the eye.

Well im off the look for more ideas! Keep on blogging!

Can you knit?

Well i cant knit, looked on youtube, learned how to cast on. Yet, i couldnt understand how to knit. So after only buying the knitting needles 12 hours ago, went back to walmart and bought some cute yard and a scarf loom. Just a rectangular loom.
I love to loom! Very calming and i can loom anywhere. Ive already made a small miniature blanket. Since i was tired and testing out if i really liked it to make miniatures! I mostly wanted to knife because ive see sooo many cute blankets and curtains from knitters. But i cant. I guess i will have to ask my moms friend katie bug to show me how to knit. Since i can cast in the darn thing. Why cant i knit? I taught my self how to crotchet from youtube why not learn how to knit from youtube? Well i might have anougher supprize tomarrow! Its about the gardens floor! :) sorry i would take i picture but im wooped. Well see ya tomarrow and happy mini-ing! And here are some ideas that i love for the garden:) just imagine what i could do!
Going to use the shelter idea!
Love the floors!
I like the pillows but, not for out side...
I love this shelter too....
And this one. I will just make a japanese like thingy, well yeah makes sense. Sorry you may not know what thingy im talking about. I think its called a arc? Or shelter.... Looks pretty tho!

Laundry! Well I've got a room:)

Well its finnaly posted for being done! Yeah:) just need to sand still, easy part:)
I finished the laundry room, well might be a laundry room.. No it will, ive worked hard and yes it is done. Many pieces if scrap wood together to make the roof! Well fine 5 but, still i could have made something else with that... Oh well i looks good now!
Even added a window! Thank you for buying things with plastic on them! Now i need to work hard over the thanksgiving break from school. I get to finish the floors with skinny sticks:) goody! Ok not really but, when the floors are stained they look amazing! Yet, if i need to finish the floors i need to find a way to make stone like i want in the fireplace. What could i use? I was thinking if this one stuff that is pink while wet and dries white. But, what if i dont like the out come? Then my fireplace is ruined. But i have a hobby lobby one! Just incase. Hopefully it would fit! Just kidding:) what else could i use for the dang stone work? Im sure that (Elli) the heidi ott doll really doesnt want to live in a construction zone. She wants to make food and read some books in the living room, well at least i only hsve to work on the first floor, kitchen living room, porch and garage, or and the new garden!!!!
Yep, the garden, isnt it beautiful? I can just see the stone or side walk like floor snd the beautiful pots filled to the rim with flowers and ferns! Oh and dont for get the vegies and fruits! I already bought a little water spicket! From this one mini site for mini metals. Joannesmini from youtube helped me out with the finding of it, just go to her blog! Or youtube whatever you like best.
Yes i broke a piece! Glad i have some super glue! Im going to paint them soon, i will take a picture then. Ive got 2 waffle makers, salt and pepper shakers, 2 skillets,a spicket, an iron, a tea kettle and a halloween mask! This is going to be for the teens room since well dur i love scsry movies! And well it fits the bill:) oh and a bread pan. I think thats what its called, or a loaf pan. Well up up snd away to the next picture!
My parents are amazing! They got a new dremel tool for me:)) it cuts, sands, buffs, and a few other things, i really wanted one since using a little hand saw is really frustrating! So is waiting for a battery to charge but hey, charging battery i can use the hand saw:)

Well i guess thats an up to date on this week since im not good at keeping up to date... Well more blogging this weekend though since well thanks giving brings a long lazy day and being sick with the head cold on top really makes it hard to want to do anything else but sit, ok ok minis are different. I need to do minis or i get bored and start looking on ebay for things... Or youtube for ideas or other sites... It happens. Well see you later alligater!

Sorry for no blog!

Planning to do this to the mckinley fireplace! Im not sure yet. But i did finish the laundry room construction, i need to finish at least the kitchen and living room on the first floor. I dont have stuff for the garage i plan to build. The roof top is going to be a garden! Like pots and a long top pot garden thing.

I also got a few crafts, so a little haul picture will be up soon! I just need to fix some furniture up and change them to what i want them to be. Take before and after pictures. I ordered my heidi ott doll, a red haired wig, and clothes and one pairs of shoes! I cant wait to see her!

Well thats allfor now folk!

Time time time.

I need more time, i need time to stop so i can be done with all my homework so i can run to my craft room:) im also trying to figure out how in the world ti make a miniature dvd or cd, any ideas? Comment please, i thought of beads but it wants any good and then buttonsnhave two holes and they dont look like a dvd or cd. The reason is i was going to try for a funky wall art pieces for the mckinley, yes i know its not done yet, you still need to order the roof for the laundry room, yeay yeah, well i really just want to create miniature things:)

I found this on the internet when i looked up the frase "its Bill Fucking Murray" thanks to Zombieland!!!! This is also why i want to know what would look like small cds, this would be for 1/12th scale, im going to paint on the cd the name or just use as is would be easier.... I will be right back, thank the Lord for smart apps for ipad! Lol well brb..
Well, sorry i had to clean the dishes, clean up after my puppy (Oscar) and get caught up in my school work, i did all of it in like 4 hours since i left. Well yes i left the blog sit... I also took pictures! I will explain how i got the resin into the green topped aquarium here shortly.. Lets drop down.
On the top left hand side there is a black piece that pops out were most average people put water into right? Well Sarah or myself thought this would make a wonderful salt tsnk aquarium that she always wanted... Since it was only $3 on ebay, heck yah, well got to it 2 or 4 months after i bought it ok i forgot about it for that long any way... I was going to take the top off change everything, little coral and grass and then little micro nail beads, well glad i didnt buy anything, since the top was super glued on. Not the sellers fault either, it was brand new unopened.
Oh yes the tutorial

What is needed: resin of your choice, I used a "grow aquarium tank"... Also used was added. small out door rocks( such as some gravel that i cleaned) then i put the resin into a saline solution bottle, then i held the bottle together since those bottles dont recap, and squeezed the bottle till all the resin was poured into the tank this took only one bottle. I had extra that would then go into the fish bowl i will talk about soon. Im now going go show the top of the box that the gree topped aquarium came in.:) the aquarium is either a sea salt or a 1/6 or barbie 10 gal tank.
Remember the lid was super glued, if anyone knows around the super glue ways, i would love to know just in case i forget... But i dont think i could forget about the whole thing, resin all over till my mom grabbed an empty bottle and helped me out!
This fish bowl was wayyyy easier! Smashed beads, a fish bead, resin of choice, and a fish bowl. It was the easiest thing. I got the fish to stay in place but a fishing line string( ironic right?) and toothpick and some tape. Tied the bead with the line and then i tied the line to the toothpick which then the line was way to short for me to tie it to the toothpick. This made it to bring the tape in. By the way, if you want to do this smash the beads on cement, my craft table is dented in two places.... Yah i know dumb Sarah! But it was dark and there is 3 feet of snow on the ground and living in the country makes for coyotes and mountain lions to be out. These animals are very curious! I wasnt going to take any risks.. And im just a baby:) also my mom would have yelled at me since i had to miss two days of school due to the flu... "You dont need to be out in the cold, you were just sick 2 days ago!" I could just hear it now! Oh hi mom i love yah! Well im not going to be hiding in my craft room:)
Well here are some more things that i worked on, if you were following this week i did a some what of a tutorial on the binder and the "28 days later" poster. Even if i painted mine, i guess you could print yours if you want, i give you permission if you want to print mine:) that would just be awesome! I want to sell some of my things that i paint, but i dont know if people would actually want to buy them. I guess i will just keep posting and maybe one of these days someone will be like " oh thats amazing how much!" Haha sorry im in dream land, its around the time for me to go to sleep now.... Its been a long day started at 5:30 and usually ending at 9:30. Also im caught up in all my classes! Oh did i say that? Oh well.

I didnt work in the mckinley, but i do need to get some money saved up before working the roof and to build the laundry room sink, since the sink is going to be a tutorial i found that is made from mat board and the roof is going to be made from some wood i have to order from the greenleaf dollhouse shop.... At least i start my first job on Thursday! That makes it easier to get a few christmas presents for me and more for my family:) i can also craft decorstions in real scale:) so its ok:) my mom loves to get paintings and some of my other art pieces. I should get those up later on in the week! I think everyone would love to see them even if half of my family has seen them:) but, its ok my mini followers havent;) and i want to put them on the blog to show more creativity then some small things i did....well goodnight or good morning, but its night in my area. Well bye bye:(

All ideas that I love!

See the big picture of the girl in the back, i want t draw/ paint a picture like that! Well school tomarrow, i will have lots of time to randomly draw:) i will just call it trying to stay awake:)

This is a fireplace from the mckinley that i saw i love the brick and the stone work, i might try it, but i dont want to copy, that would be rude!
Tutorial i found on how to make a miniature box, im sooo going to use this when im putting some things away like christmas decorstions and such..
I also found this, made me and to buy a miniature plant kit, but i thought it through when i saw the prices, fake plants from walmart and hobby lobby work ans then the floral arangement grass, moss will work and then there was a tutorial i saw on how to make ministure baskets i will find that again later..
Different style and color and i will make this for infront of the fireplace, it will look like my dads:)
Yes, i found it the long lost bed that i love to death! I got the picture from i forgot who did it, but i know that i want to tell that person thanks for showing their work, because i love it!
And again same bed, there is a tutorial on the website somewhere on how to do this so i will do this for the teenagers room, i get away with no sewing:?) yay, sewing miniatures is hard....

Well i will probably blog about the resin in the fish tank tomarrow, hope you can wait to see it, bet it is not going to be dry by then tho, i will only take s picture were its at, even if it cracks or something to that effect, i have another bowl that i need to put a fish in and some rocks, just need to do it, but i think the dollhouse is more important right now:)

Oh goodnight, sorry its late ok 9:30ish but whatever:) see yah tomarrow:)

another update? yes it is yes it is :)

this is the attic teenager room
thought it would be nice to have a different wall since that is the new thing now :)

The bathroom is done, dont you love the floor? Well i sure do, i cant wait to start decorating it :)

The attic laundry room :) looking good besides them bubbles and the right hand wall, but whatever i can cover it up with something from my stash :) oh! I can also put a sewing area there to  that would be the perfect area for that right?

Like the wall? well i had to do this since there was a split since i had two pieces of wood that i glued together to make the wall. So i had to make a distraction did it work?

The left hand laundry room wall is bubble, and cut but mainly bubbly and i tried every thing while the mod podge dryed, but what can i saw. mod podge didnt like me to day...

see this wall right here, it looks bad... but then kind of cool because it looks like the wallpaper is coming off, this is a result of primed wood, acrylic brown paint and then mod podge on top, then when i saw this! i tried to add some black and brown paint and then got this to the turn out when i tried dabbing some off it looked better, butoh well nothing can always go my way i guess..

living room that has been untouched still, but i did glue the door knocker back on :) my nephew was playing in it and wanted to knock on the door, well lets just say auntie was ok since well i love my nephew :) and hey, i just glued it back on with super glue and tacky glue and some other kind of glue :) haha i mixed some glue ok ?!

this is what the house looks like so far!

yes the floor again, this is the bedroom for the parents, or the living room when i feel like decorating hahah.

the hall way, still needing a door i see....

I used this kind of paper. some acrylic paints and a very small paint bush and some inspiration from my favorite kind of movies :)

measured the paper that i showed above, to get the size i needed it to be about the size of a movie poster that i was going to mimic in miniature world.

i drew out and started to paint, "28 days later" This movie is good and the miniature form of the poster looks even creeper then the DVD cover or the posters i looked at on the internet...

keep painting :)

Drum roll..............................................................

Finished product is.... very creepy :)

measure out the binder/folder

I used the smallest jump rings i have :)

glued it down the middle

and placed the jump rings like it was a big binder for a high schooler or a college student. Then i placed the binder inbetween a scissor to dry, this is so i didnt move it and make the jump rings go swimming in a bunch of extra glue....

Well Im going to go google somethings that im going to do, like how to make a laundry room sink, so i can find out what materials to look for and or buy online :) well at least i have a job right? well first day is tomarrow hope fully there is a place to clean tomarrow, Oh by the way im a cleaing lady did any one tell yah haha, well I love you sissy :)
