See I didn't forget about it!

It just takes me Forever to finish something. LOL........ So with that being said, I did get a little bit of work done on the mouse house this past weekend. I found a piece of velum that I fell in love with and used it as the windows for both the upstairs and the downstairs. I didn't want a clear window, I wanted something with a little interest.


I got the door hardware glued in..... And the floor.....


And then I started building up the sides of my house with foamcore board (that's what I had....so that's what I used)


Once I get all the sides glued on, I will go back and plaster in the holes.....Then I'll go back and cover that with paperclay to create the bark on the tree......


It's starting to come together now........

If I could just find the energy to finish it now..........

How smart with the windows- I love them! I can't wait to see the magic happen on the outside of the house- this might end up being my most favorite dollhouse ever! It's funny that you asked me about the polymer clay for the candy on my house, because I found some super cute candy molds and I was going to try using them with clay. I'm not so good at the clay so cross your fingers for me :)
