What did I get myself into!

That's right, I got myself into trouble! Clicking and browsing... I found the most enchanting dollhouse I've ever seen... and now? Now I want it!

The kit is way to expensive for me so I'm buying the building plans, and together with my dad we are going to build it from scratch!....
What did we get ourselves into!?

The pictures are from the website: http://earthntree.com/miniatures/
Where you can buy the wood kit and the finishing kit or the building plans.

I decided to buy just the plans and use the very affordable euromini windows and finishings, but since euromini's is going to stop producing by the end of this year, and their stuff is selling out fast, I had to be quick! Or else this project will turn out to be a half finished disaster! Luckely I managed to get everything on my shopping list.. now I have to be patient and wait for everything to be shipped....

I'm all giggly and nervous now! Patience is NOT my forte :P

the reason I haven't blogged for so long

The reason is that I had a big summer break from school. And I have to use my computer a lot for school, so when the summer break from school started, I turned off my computer.... and only turned it on every now and then to check my mail or something quick like that.
I've had a wonderfully lazy summer, the weather wasn't great but that doesn't really matter much. I started cross stitching again, because it's so time consuming I usually only do it when I have days and days of free time. Here is one of the things I made, a scissor fob and a biscornu in the making. I also made some 1:12 cross stitchings, but I'll show those later ;)
