Our goal is to satisfy our desire for creating miniature rooms & dollhouses while helping out charity causes around the world. This is a win-win situation. We can donate more this way than by our own individual donations AND you can get a gorgeous miniature room or dollhouse for far less than you would normally pay. We also hope to raise more as a group than each individual item could be sold for. Miniature rooms will be $25 donation per entry and dollhouses will be $50 donation per entry (possibly more depending on the dollhouse). This blog will serve as our progress/update site as well as our auction site.

hi all!

i have done LOTS of work on the dollhouse recently - in fact the outside is nearly done (didn't i say that last time?)  every time i get a bunch done i feel this sense of over accomplishment.  then i go back to it and realize - no, i am NOT almost done.....anyway, check it out!
i THINK the only things left are the shingles and then the dormer rooftops!  i got the dormer windows done and the front door is now in place.

 *squeal*! i am so pleased with it!  i did have to get a little help from hubby - the dormer window frames and the door wouldn't fit in their holes :(

and look at the ITTY doorknob!
i love this pic 'cuz it looks just like a pic of a real house but it's NOT! hahahhahha!

i have also dyed the shingles:
Pezza helped (my 4 year old daughter and future owner of the house):
(for those of you wondering - yes, the fear of dye ending up EVERYWHERE as she was messing in it was almost paralyzing BUT no mishaps...)

 i don't think i did it right because there is barely any color on most of them.
some of them look really good but most of them do not.  i may need to do a second round of dye.....

that's a lot of shingles...talk about an intimidating step!  i wonder how long it will take to glue all of those on.....
