So much fun

Dear CLH,

Thank you all for all the work you put into CLH. Amy, thank you especially for ALL the work you did to make it all happen. This was my first time, and it has been so much fun. I hope that you all have enjoyed it as much as I have.

I had a bit of a scare when my package was posted as delivered but it wasn' appeared 24 hours later, though, I was soooo happy. My dd called my mom, and we had a happy time opening everything. (Even though we did think about leaving all as-is 'cause it was all so sweet the way it came...but we got over that quickly enough!)

I've enjoyed seeing your stories and photos on your blogs also. It's been fun to see how others work, to read about some challenges, and fun to see my littles out there too!

Wishing you all a very happy 2009! May your year be full of fun and tiny treasures!



Thank You

Dear CLH members

My package arrived Christmas Eve and I loved every little bit. I will post some pics on my blog and send out some emails to the lovely women whose contributions I received soon but just wanted to thank you all and especially Amy for arranging this swap. May each one of you have a wonderful 2009!!


My Package Arrived

My CLH package arrived today and I have posted about it on my blog. I have included lots of pictures! Come and visit when you are ready. ~Mandy


on their way...

Look at all these boxes! They reached the ceiling! And guess what...they are on their way to you. Are you ready?

There was a minor setback so it took just a little bit longer to get all these packages ready. I can't wait for you to see all the goodies. I think this is the best round much really wonderful stuff. And the details are beyond fabulous. You'll see.

Comment here when your package arrives...and if you have any sort of celebration planned for the grand package opening, post pictures! Have fun!

My Blog has my submissions...

Here they are packaged up, don't visit my blog if you want to keep it all a surprise!
I am going to be stalking my mailman all week now!


My Project Revealed

When you are ready to see what I made for CLH, come visit me at Wish on a Whisker. ~Mandy


Club Little House

Ohh my Amy has divided up the CLH submissions -- so exciting!! See her blog!!!


LOL - Me and Martha

I bought Martha Stewart Living magazine - the one with all the beautiful cookies on the cover - and was enjoying flipping through it when a little more that halfway through I stopped and gasped. There is a photo of something similar to what I had made for CLH!!! Her version is life size and mine is dollhouse scale, but still me and Martha on the same track - unbelievable.

Club Little House Sneak Peek

I hope this sneak peek doesn't spoil the surprise too much. I'm knee deep in packaging up my littles for this round of Club Little House. The sorting party is on Monday and friends are coming over to help package up littles and send them off. It's going to be so much fun.

My Little's Sneak Peek

Hi everyone, I bet you all are just as excited for the Little's to arrive in your mail box as I am. I am trying to be patient. :-) I have just posted a picture of my Little's all wrapped up. Take a look here



A good Tuesday to you all! While we're waitin', just thought I'd pop in and say hi! We had a package on the doorstep yesterday, and dd said- "I'll bet it's your swaps!" Just a little anticipa-a-tion, here too.

I just have to ask- are any of you members of N.A.M.E.?

mini hugs.



Hi All,
I just wanted to tell you that the excitement is building at our house. I sent an e-mail out to my friends showing them what Sylvan and I had made, and telling them about Club Littlehouse.

We've had several friends e-mail and ask if we they could please, please be there when the package arrives so they can see what's inside! So it looks like we'll be having an impromptu party! Our guests will have to arrive quickly, though. I don't think we'll be able to wait too long to open everything!


Another Teaser

Anticipation is an exciting part of Club Little House. Here is a shot of my packages. Enjoy!
I had so much fun making my littles. Its been good but difficult to make the time to do the crafting, and this whole new reliance on glasses has been a learning experience and my fingers just don't have the dexterity I wanted. I really loved the process and somewhat winding road from my inspiration to vision through setbacks and new paths to a finished product that I am pleased with. Hope you will be pleased too.

Another Newbie

Hello fellow CLH swappers,

My name is Tracey (AKA Oliver Rain) and this is my first Club Little House Swap. I've been dying to join since I saw the first swap a few years ago. Making 12 little miniatures was the last thing I had time for now, but the idea of participating in this one was too good to pass up. So my fingers are sore and my eyes are tired, but I'm finished!

I hope you enjoy my contributions. They will be shipped out later this morning. I can't wait until the big reveal!



My Club Little House surprises were sent out today! ~Mandy


littles on their way

Hi :) Posted my little's for CLH in the mail today :). So much fun :) This is the 2nd round I have been in CLH ~ think it gets even more fun :). Now need to do a bit of sprucing up in the doll cottage to get it all ready for the party when the package of goodies arrive :)
my blog

Hello!! from shar

I haven't introduced myself yet because I have been sanding and painting and my fingers were sore and couldn't type anymore. Hi! I'm Shar. I think this is my third CLH and I am so excited. I have been thinking of what I was going to make since last year's CLH. I have had one mess up though. I broke one of my molds - in half. So I have had to make a little adjustment. I should finish painting today and hopefully they will be in the mail tomorrow.

Here is a quick picture of the molds to get some idea of what I am making!! Just think FOOD!!
p.s. - check out my blog... I need to update it with CLH's pictures tonight.


Another Peek

Hi! I have posted another CLH photo on my blog ~Wish on a Whisker~. Still don't want to show too much. My next step is getting them packaged in a big box (or two). My plan is to ship Friday or Saturday. Looking forward to seeing what you all have made! ~Mandy


Hello everyone!

Time to introduce myself, I think :)
Hello, my name is Susanna and I'm addicted to making miniatures.
I'm so glad to be part of this group of like minded people. You are all warmly invited to view my blog. I say view because the text is all in Finnish, except for one entry (Mary's story). However I do have lots and lots of photos for your viewing pleasure, so please stop by. I have a teeny tiny tea pot filled with steaming tea and cookies waiting for you.

This is what left my house today:

I might show you a sneak peek later, if you say please ;)


Hello CLH!

Hi there,

I'm so excited to be in this group this time! I'm just about finished with the little somethings. I don't have a blog (gasp!) so no sneak peaks....but I will tell you that the sawdust has been vacuumed up and the paints put away. I'm making a run to Kinko's in a bit, then there will be some cutting, folding, and maybe a just little more paint. Then the wrapping and tying of little much fun!



I posted my Littles today!

It was quite nerve-wracking, they have to travel half way across the world, but they are well padded and they are on their way to Amy!


Two more signing on

Hi there,

My daughter Sylvan and I decided to sign up together. Sylvan just turned 11 and has been making miniatures for the last few years. I am a graphic designer and jewelry designer living in Fredericksburg, Virgina. We are having so much fun putting together all the little elements of our design!

I did have a little mishap the other night, though. I won't say what we're making, but it involved lots of tiny pieces of paper.


Another Introduction

Hello! My name is Mandy and I am a new member of CLH. I am really excited to be involved and look forward to seeing what everyone is making! I have been working on my little things and hope to have a sneak peek on my blog very soon. Stop by for a visit if you get a chance. ~Mandy


a few more slots open

I have just a few more slots open for Club Little House. If you know anyone who's interested, or if you'd like to sign up for a double (two groups at once), email me (

Hope you're all having fun making your littles! I have a lot of itty bitty painting to do. I may have bitten off more than I can chew.


Hello CLH!

Hi! Thanks to Jo for the push for introductions! I'm Jenna. I write two blogs: CorgiPants, my personal blog and SwapDex, an index of swaps. I am so excited to be participating in Club Little House, this will be my second round! I'm hard at work on my littles, slowly but surely pumping them out in small groups as I get time. In between yard work, my 9-5 job, my etsy store and training and showing our dog, that is! Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with! This time around I may just have to pull the dollhouse out of storage to display all my goodies, the box I have them is is starting to overflow!

An Introduction...

Hello! I thought I'd introduce myself, seeing as I've been stalking so many of your blogs and spending hours going through the Flickr photostream of CLH! My name is Jo, I live the UK, and when I came across Club Little House (in a very roundabout way, I might add!) I was so excited but never for one moment thought I'd ever get in to such a fabulous group. I am amazed at the littles that have been made in previous swaps, and I can't wait to see what littles there'll be in this swap.
I have posted a little sneak peak on my blog, so don't click my link if you want to be completely surprised! It's only a small part of the bigger picture, so it's not going to ruin the surprise completely, but still.
If you do pop over to my blog, leave me a comment, so I know which one of my countless visitors you were ;-)
Better yet, why not add an introduction here, I'd love to 'meet' more of the club members!


club little house announcement...

You can sign up for Club Little House starting next friday, Sept. 26 at Noon EST.


A New Club Little House Adventure?

I was so excited to read on Amy's blog this week that a new Club Little House adventure may be in the works this year. Oh, I am so thrilled and will keep my fingers crossed I get my name on the list when it's time. Now, what to make? Hmmmm....
