a new little house!

I've had an idea that had been on the back burner since I participated in CLH December 2008 and finally I am acting on it. The idea is to create a dollhouse environment combining my little drawings along with miniatures, then photograph the scenes to develop a picture storybook. And if all goes as planned some stop motion animation too!

I have no idea how this will turn out but I am excited to have a project that will be purely experimental and just for me.

I searched for dollhouses on Craigslist hoping to find a used one. But there wasn't anything that fit what I had in mind. I'm still on the lookout for old dollhouse furniture that is 1/12 scale, so if you have some you don't want let me know!

After much searching I decided on this house from HomeDepot:

My dollhouse arrived today!

This weekend I put it together and blogged about it here!

I really hope we'll be able to do Club Little House again one day. It was so much fun and now I have so many ideas!

Congrats on your new little house! I was so excited when I saw that someone had posted on CLH!! My swap with CLH is what started it all for me with miniatures. I can't wait to see how you work your magic on this sweet little house! Have fun!
Hugs,
Jill

This is incredibly a good idea and should work better than the animations actually done with help of software. This is an actual talented job which if done in better way can be awesome. Best of luck.
