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.
