back to work

With my swap commitments finished and mailed off to their destinations I have decided it is me time. I have a bunch of mini projects that I want to start or want to finish. My husband for my birthday bought me the Greenleaf Coventry Cottage dollhouse kit, which seems to be a popular kit as a few people I know have built it or are currently building. He also bought me a bunch of other stuff too, mainly for the new house. So stay tuned for the exciting build of the new house.

With the toy store done (just need to make a few more toys) but the building itself is finished, I have started to build a pet shop. My most recent issue of Dollhouse miniatures magazine there is some good ideas for pet shops and minis for the pet shop. I am using the same building technique as the toy shop, with the exception that the pet shop will only have one floor. I have decided to name the pet shop Daisy's pet shop in memory of our dear sweet bunny who passed away just before Christmas.

So here is some of the pics of the goodies my hubby bought for me and part one of the Coventry cottage build. I have discovered while reading the instructions I am going to have to decorate as I go, since I am pretty sure once I place that second floor on, it might be nearly impossible to decorate.

So today I start with the hard wood floors which I will be making out of skinny sticks.
