Back to Work! The Start of Figaro's Cottage

I'm getting back to construction finally! I'm still on crutches but feeling much better.  Thank you all for your sweet comments! It was so nice to read! hugs♥
This is the beginning of Figaro's Cottage which will be Jen's new dollhouse.  Figaro was Jen's cat.  She's already bought a little felt figurine of Figaro to sit on the front porch.  I cut this house out of wood from Lowe's. It's  3/16 x 2 x 2 Lauan Plywood
Before I started up the building again, I worked on furniture and accessories for this house. I could only work a little bit at first because I had to stay off my leg after I sprained my calf muscle 3 1/2 weeks ago. I've never taken so long to complete a project before. But Jen is so patient and understanding. I'm truly blessed with the best customers!  I have 2 more projects waiting on me with equally patient customers.  But I'm back! Thanks for stopping by!

My Chandelier Tutorial in American Miniaturist Magazine

My chandelier tutorial is in the March 2014 issue of American Miniaturist. 
It's the same tutorial you'll find here on my blog.  A quick and easy way to add some sparkly  romance in your dollhouse.  I had tried some more elaborate tutorials online, but quickly adapted a new version when things went terribly wrong. LOL! :)
I've been totally out of commission for the past 2 weeks. No Minis! :(
I sprained my calf muscle.  It's been very annoying. I've had to spend tons of time resting my leg. I hope this is the last few days of not being able to walk.  By the way crutches are horrible! LOL!!! My entire body is now aching from having dragged myself around with them.  Boohoo!
big hugs to all of you♥,
