Cardboard, tape,pins, a baby and a thank you

Riley helping

So the guys were all ready to cut things out for me yesterday however I was not. The washing machine decided it wanted to not work so I had to fix it and clean up all kinds of water. Not fun. Then they were drinking again. I wasn't ready then either so didn't matter. Now cutting of things will have to wait till next weekend but that's OK I'm still working on the mock up. My mini helper came today and this is how it went....
After 5 min." can we take a break yet?"
he likes him some break time and so does Bobbi Joe
So far...
So the roof angles are driving me crazy but I think I have it figured out. The windows and door are the cut out sizes of the ones I plan on getting. They are cut out of card stock for my mock up so I can move them around. I still have to find a window for the top that's why one isn't there yet. I have the ceiling in on the inside but no walls yet because I'm throwing some angles in to get rid of the box feel. Its going to be 5 rooms not including the hall an small attic space. This week I have wire coming and my father in-law is going to teach me to solder so I can do flower boxes on the windows and railing on the stairs. I also have about 15 House of Miniatures furniture kits coming. I want the canopy bed from them so bad but keep getting out bid :( I'm going to be a busy girl though. Now onto my thank you - I want to thank everyone that has started following me you have no idea how much it means to me and you are all so nice. I am starting to put thought into a 50 followers giveaway. An I know I normally put a small project on here on Tuesdays but I have to skip it this time I'm really sorry I'm just slammed. Sorry :(  I will update soon with everything else. Thanks again everyone y'all are great!

Sometimes it does not go as fast as we would like. Relax and enjoy your porces. It sounds so exciting and so many furniture you need to assemble. Enjoy the good work.

Hugs

your little helper is adorable! I think your house is coming along nicely. I've been working on my dollhouses for years and I don't think I still have a single one finished- I almost think it's part of the fun :) Love your progress so far! ♥

Hi Tina! The little guy is so cute! You certainly did not waste time getting started. It's too bad that real life so often gets in the way of minis! Looking forward to what comes next! You have your work cut out for you with all those kits to build. But, that's part of the fun. Hope you have a gluing jig. It will make your life so much easier when you put these kits together. You can get one at Micro Marks in case you don't already know.

Wyrna, Kim, Lucille and Maria, thanks so much for all your comments. RL seems to always seep in when I think I might have time for something I want to do. As far as the gluing jig I will def be checking into that Lucille sounds like just what I need, and Kim I dont think we ever can be finished with a dollhouse. There is always those couple little things we want to do and then a couple more! All of yall's comments keep me motivated though! There are not enough thanks in the world to express what you guys and your comments mean to me! I hope you guys have a great week and have time to enjoy your mini's :)
