The Doll House

DSC_0448

So I recently came across a new blogging block...I ran out of room to upload photos.  Well, I finally came up with a solution and I'm up and running again.

Moose received this awesome handmade dollhouse for her 2nd birthday back in August, but grandpa and grandma finally got them to the west coast a few weeks ago.  Boy did I forget how big they are!  They take up most of the space in her room.  She can barely see the top floor!

I've been slowly trying to make some furniture for this doll house.  I did some looking online and found a surprising lack of Barbie size furniture tutorials.  So I just kind of winged it.  I made a blue sink out of a chunk of wood.  I carved out a very shallow sink.  I also make a stove and that I used a bit more creativity.  I found the smallest hinge at the craft store I could find and made it so it could open.  Then I glued magnet sheet that I had onto both sides and then colored a turkey and a pie and glued those onto more magnet sheet.  So "Cinderbrella" as she is called in our house can do some baking.  I have plans for a purple fridge, but I will not get to working on that until after Christmas.

I also made two beds out of some leftover foam from the flower box I made in the beginning of the year.  I just wrapped the foam in fabric and hot glued it down.  I made the mini quilts and pillows reversible, but Moose likes them like this.  The beds are a tad short for the 12 inch dolls, but for the smaller ones they are perfect, so I'll have to get some more foam and make a few more larger beds.  I also made a couch out of the leftover foam, but it looks really sad so I didn't take any close up photos of it.   I'll have to make a more realistic one sometime in the future.

  1. I had no clue your blog could run out of photo storage. I wonder if I'm getting close. I will need to research those limits.

Valentine's Day Wreath

Now that the Christmas decorations are down, it is time to make some Valentine's Day decorations to put up! I have seen some in the store, but it is much more fun to make your own.  So here is how I made my sweet heart wreath. First you need a hoop (the one I used had about a 7 in diameter), 7 big wooden hearts, 8 small wooden hearts, paint, glitter, ribbon, and some hot glue. I took all my hearts and painted them a solid color and then went back over them and made some patterns or outlined them. I thought they were looking a little boring so I went back and put some glitter on random ones. Then I went around and hot glued the big ones and tried to make them as evenly spaced as possible. Then I hot glued the smaller ones on top of the bigger hearts, tied some ribbon, and then hung on my door!

Scrapbooking, First Solo

I can't believe how much time has gone by since I last scrapbooked.  Well, I finally have been inspired to scrap again and I found a fun challenge with a very happy mood board that got my creative juices going again. Recently, my daughter got to dance her first solo on a stage.  I had only seen her dance this when she was first learning this.  She had a broken wrist at the time, so I never had seen some of the moves until she danced it on stage.  It had been over a year since she was on a stage and she has never been on one all by herself.  I wasn't sure how she was going to do.  I could tell she was getting nervous, but she did a beautiful job.  I was a very proud mommy.  =)  I really wanted to add one more picture, so I added this photo on a pull out tab.  I always enjoy the pages that have a little interactive part to them. While the paper I used for this layout was all new, all the embellishments are things that I have had for a long time.  I used some old stickers, wooden

Scrapbooking, Pumpkin Patch

  I loved how the water color background turned out for my son's page so much, that I had to try it again.  This time, I thought I would make a two page layout for my daughter's book since it has been a very long time since I've tried one.   I wanted to scrap these pumpkin patch pictures from last year because we were just about to go to the pumpkin patch again and I thought they would help me get into the fall mood.  I just love fall, but the weather in the pacific northwest is so unpredictable this time of year.  You never know if there is going to be a sunny day to go pumpkin picking so you have to take advantage of one when it comes!   Scrap Our Stash had their Tic Tac Toe challenge again, so I thought I would give it a go.  I went right down the center and did 3 buttons, decorative pins, and wood veneers.  I scattered buttons randomly onto the page.  I used up the little joy pin from Little Yellow Bicycle that I had laying around still.  I also added a li
