dolllhouse day!

hi all!

well trevor graduated today – 2 down and 1 to go.  my in-laws flew in (ex-laws, out-laws…??? my first husbands parents)  i ADORE them and was so happy to see them.  anyway they flew in from san diego and we went out and had a fabulous dinner at the Cajun Connection in leesburg.  everybody was ready to head over there this morning and i call trevor (already at the school) to find out where he put the tickets.  he couldn’t remember.  we tore the house apart.  we looked everywhere.  we did not find them.  we missed it.  *sigh*  so NO i do not have grad pics to show you today.


TTCRD – Have you entered the TTCRD Challenge yet?  our challenge is summertime and there is a $10 gift certificate to Glitterbabe Digis up for grabs!


i have been putting the dollhouse together. so far i have most of the shell done.  i feel all impressed with myself until i realize that only actually involves like 7 pieces and i have about eleventy bazillion to go.

step 2 – glue the front RIGHT side of the dollhouse on….*glue*….OH shit i put it on the left,  other right.  pull up quickly.  *glue* gee i sure hope this glue really is strong enough to hold this thing together…..after leaving it to dry 2 hours i am back for step 3….hmmmm something is not looking quite right…..OH shit glued the front panel to the BACK of the dollhouse.  the good news is i found out the glue really IS strong enough to hold the dollhouse together…that is also the BAD news….i carefully pry the piece off, thank god only ever so slight damage but nothing that will interfere with dollhouse enjoyment.  so step 2 glue the right front panel to the RIGHT side of the FRONT of the dollhouse…..

the books and can are for additional weight while the glue dries.  once i got that fixed i started on the tower portion:

a view from the inside:

OH SO SO much fun!

and now i am off – tired from a wonderful day of visiting!

  1. Oh I so remember this! It’s been over 30 years ago, but I remember!

  2. Well, at least you got the hard part out of the way…making the first mistake! lol I can laugh because I’ve been there, but it definately doesn’t make me feel better that someone else did the same things I did. I wish I had that Windows server book to help hold pieces together for me! That should definately do the trick! I’m glad that you’re progressing so quickly. Most people put it back in the box after they see all of the pieces.

    I’m so sorry that you didn’t get to the ceremony for your son’s graduation.

  3. Hi, Marti!
    I’m so glad you are doing such a good job on that dollhouse-they are tremendously hard to put together, especially when overwhelmed by so much going on in your life! It has a tendency to fry the brain and we can’t think very well on putting complicated things together…LOL.
    Sorry you missed the graduation ceremony, but at least he graduated! I’m so proud of him {and you!}.
    God bless,

  4. Aww! Sorry you had to miss Trev’s Graduation Ceremony. Hopefully, the school took pics, plus you can always have him put on his Cap/Gown and take a pic at home!!

    Glad you had a great time with his Grandparent’s…that’s very sweet!!

    The doll house is amazing! I’m sure I would have had a LOT more problems and I’m also certain it will be gorgeous once you finish it!!!


  5. So sorry you missed the graduation! What a disappointment, but at least he is graduated.

    The doll house looks great so far. I’ve NEVER glued anything to the wrong side – lol!
