April Cottage ordered!

I have set up this blog to document my journey of building my very first dollhouse!  I have always wanted to set up a dollhouse for as long as I can remember.  My youngest son will be starting kindergarten next year so I will have more time up my sleeve to devote to this new hobby.  Very excited with all the possibilities.  I plan on doing quite a lot of handmade items for the house and also making the inhabitants (mice!)  I used to make miniature teddy bears (for 9 years), so I'm hoping I will have the skills to come up with a good mouse design.

I have ordered the "April Cottage" kit from The Dolls House Emporium.  It has everything I wanted, 6 rooms, internal doors, two staircases.  I will be constructing the kit from scratch and decorating everything myself.  As I've never done anything like this before I'm expecting a few bumps in the road but I'm looking forward to the challenge.  My DHE order should arrive in the next few days!
