so i'm off to a very late start on the "i'm a giant blog challenge!" by emily henderson and pals.
with moving, etc. going on in my life- all i've gotten to is taking 'before' pictures of the dollhouse i'm going to work on.
my sister and i got this dollhouse one year for christmas. i remember many a christmas bazaar trying to win a dollhouse through a raffle and after many disappointing losses, i think santa took the hint. i can also remember ogling all the miniature wares in a dollhouse shop in our local mall and now i wish it was still around- who knew after...what, 17 years that i still would be interested in this very little, somewhat weird hobby?
(side note: the day i found out about the challenge, i drove down to my parents house to pick up the dollhouse and all of it's accessories. i really did feel like the biggest creep driving around for a week with a dollhouse fully visible in the trunk of my car.)
6 rooms is a big undertaking. but i figured the money not spent on buying a new dollhouse, i could put into buying flare for it. although i'm really trying to use materials i already have and then splurging on what i really need. lord knows, i have a lot to work with.
my goal is to really see this thing through- fingers crossed, i don't peter out.
so, in the words of emily henderson:
'LETS GET WEIRD, IN A VERY SMALL WAY.'
