DIY: Flocking, it’s not just for hair!

I know it’s been awhile, but as the saying goes, better late than never! I can’t even tell you how much I enjoy sharing with all of you and wish I could do more! I have so many ideas!

We are approaching Spring and it should be all butterflies, baskets, and weddings…but while embarking on my latest obsession of re-rooting and flocking hair, it dawned on me that flocking could be used for some fashion accessories, namely shoes (to mimic suede or velvet)!

I know how much you all enjoyed my other custom shoe and accessory DIY’s in the past, so here’s my latest! Enjoy!

Summer Doll Holiday

IMG_1954As many of you know, it takes a lot of time and energy to keep cranking out DIY tutorials  and blog posts when you have a more than full-time job and responsibilities. As much as it makes me happy to craft and share, it is not where I need to be focused right now.  Bruni & I are going to take an unofficial break from regular postings and tutorials for some or all of the Summer. It’s a shame since the blog is really starting to take off, but we are all faced with tough decisions on a regular basis. Many are busy with kids during the Summer, so you may not have time to craft anyway, so it will be a good time for me to limit my posts and not commit every week to a new feature.

Come Shopping with Us: The Hardware Store

A Trip to the Hardware Store

Kensee and Bruni are off to the hardware store in hopes of finding some great accessories for upcoming interior design jobs!

During my last few trips to the hardware store for my basics like spray paint and glue pens, I decided to sleuth a little more than normal and document it for you! There are so many normal household items at the hardware store that can be used for miniature items. There’s more than meets the eye at your local hardware store; I hope you too find some surprises here!

DIY: Glassware for Dolls

DIY Glassware for Dolls

As you know, one of our goals is for our dolls and dioramas to have the same beautiful items we have in our homes. Glassware is a tricky one since it can’t easily be created or painted. I do plan to delve into resin experiments this summer, but who knows how that will go! In the meantime, I’ve created some decorative household items using items we should all be able to find. Read on for lots of fun ideas! Continue reading “DIY: Glassware for Dolls”

DIY: More Mix & Match Dioramas Walls

DIY Diorama Wall Ideas

As mentioned last week, I decided that I would do a short series for diorama walls and room box ideas. My goal is to keep the costs down and allow them to be collapsible and storable. So continuing the Mix and Match theme, I have created a few more concept ideas for interchangeable walls.  Each of these build on the concepts shown in last week’s blog found here.
