I hope you all like what i was able to complete in the past couple of weekends.   I made alot of progress this weekend.  I finished all the stone walls and most of the decorations and all the electrical.   I tryed video taping the house for you all, but it didnt turn out to good, when i have more time put a video of the house and me, once i get a good video and not so shy.  I hope you all have a Wonderful Week!  I cant wait for work to get over this week so i can finish working on this house.

I spent a couple of days just making the doors and the screen doors for the house.  I think i like the shingles i made out of paper clay, i accidently put to much moss on the shingles, but i like them covered with all the moss.  I spent Saturday night with a house full of people for our Saturday dinner party sitting on the couch surrounded by people while we watched movies and laughed, while i worked on the house, surrounded by boxes full of junk and miniatures while i built items and painted and added all the items to the interior.

I really love Christmas and the tree took many hours glueing all of the ornaments on.  I still want to make some more boxes to put ornaments in and clean up the attic area more.

I had alot of fun making a couple of Christmas boxes of ornaments.

I thought the water wheel i found worked out great to put the house on top of.

I finally got started again on my gnome houses.  This one i decided to incoorporate using more balsa wood, since i do love working with it.  I dont like the price i have to pay for balsa wood, but this way i can make each window a certain size and get greative.  The interior took a couple of weekend just to cut the decorative wood walls and wallpaper.  I am planning to use paperclay to cover the front of the house with stones and the roof with shingles.  I think i may do a christmas scene inside this  one, im in the mood for the holidays.  I found the base at the thrift store that is a water fall, which i thought might be cool so i cut it up to work my house onto it.  So when its done the water pond will light up the base of the house and the water wheel will turn.  My plan is to sit in my living room today watching movies and drinking coffee, and install all the electrical and lights. 

I still need to make double front doors and screens, it would be cheaper to pre buy the doors, but i wanted a house with no pre built windows or doors.

I spent last night building the attic roof, while sitting on the living room floor, while watching movies with friends and their watchful eyes as i glued, cut and painted.

I cant wait to start building the interior and decorate it for Christmas.
