1) Finish Malibu beach house - there are many reasons for this:
a) there is HUGE box of parts sitting in my workroom taking up space, although sometimes when I am painting something white, I paint some Malibu house pieces, so then the parts leave the box . . .
b) and then I tend to lose parts of them or the instructions, so I fear it is only a matter of time before they are lost for good. (I have had this house kit for 3.5 years now).
c) my people need a bathroom. I bought this cat for myself for Christmas to inspire me to build the bathroom
2) Complete next part of childrens' dollhouse - make a room for the grandparents and build the "elevator" and maybe put some front opening walls on the front to help prevent the dust from gathering. Initially I bought a plexiglass front so that it was a modern sheer "glass" front wall house, but it's too difficult for the kids to slide in and out, and it tends to stay off. And I think they like playing with the doors -- see previous post about fixing broken door :)
3) Go back to working on the Dutch canal house (but see 1(a) above - I need the space where the box sits.)
4) Continue to organize minis. I have them partially organized into clear boxes with labels of either ideas or rooms (for example, kitchen, living room).
My work room is waiting:
(The pillow was a gift from ModPod Miniatures; the black toolbox is the design of Pepper from MitchyMoo Miniatures sold on Shapeways). I made the little miter box (from coffee stirrers again - my favorite source of wood) and the miter knife is a red toothpick glued to a flatter toothpick painted silver). The cutting mat is a cut-out glued on paper. I made the paints as part of a NAME tote bag favor project for the NAME online house party - I made 10 sets (and I made the little tray to hold them, since mine don't all stand perfectly). The fab white/wood desk is Minimodernista. The pink chair is reac. The "craft supply cabinet" held donuts for a bakery - bought on ebay.)
And here are some smaller mini projects on my To Do list for this year
1) Do witch kit (the first kit I ever bought, but I have yet to start it) (now I have SO many more kits . . .);
2) Make pajamas from a Dolls House Magazine article;
3) Make sweater from American Miniaturist January 2015 issue - some of my men need some more clothing for parties (and this will at least help me organize my real-life sock drawer);
4) Do food tutorial and lighting tutorial classes from the NAME online house party last April;
5) Do new 1/144 kit (which looks amazing);
This list seems rather exhausting, so I've gone to bed to think of more ideas (and hope I get some pajamas soon)
Happy New Year and looking forward to seeing what everyone creates this year!
