The Blog is Back!
14 August 2017
Good news, everyone! We're bringing back our blog in a big way.
We've been so busy over the last 12 months that we've been neglecting the blog a little more than we should, but that is all about to change!
It is our aim to make The Dolls House Emporium blog a fantastic destination for all things miniature. You can expect to see:
- Showcases of YOUR photographs, highlighting some of your builds and projects
- In depth looks at some of our products
- Interesting works of miniature art from all over the world
+ And much more!
More than anything we're keen for the blog to be what YOU want it to be.
Do you have a suggestion for the kind of thing you'd like to see on the blog? Perhaps you have a brilliant idea that we haven't thought of. What would you be interested in seeing?
If you have an idea on something that you think we should feature, please let us know by emailing email@example.com with the subject line "Blog Suggestion" and we'll see what we can do!
We're really looking forward to our new blogging adventure, we hope you'll come along for the ride.
Blogs of Inspiration
6 October 2014
There are lots and lots of Miniatures and Dolls' House Blogs around, covering the full range of dolls' houses, periods, fantasies and styles. We often come across some weird and wacky ones, some that we can't always share and we're sure there are many more that we have yet to stumble on.
Here's some of the recent finds -
Tara's work includes a stunning selection of Tim Burton and Harry Potter inspired pieces and is perfect for Halloween! Lots of great inspiration if you're struggling and if you're short on time, she has an Etsy shop too!
Casey covers a wealth of miniature projects and crafting ideas. Her workroom and supplies are a dedication to craft rooms everywhere, it makes mine seem puny in comparison.
And then there is the AIM blog -http://artisansinminiature.blogspot.co.uk/
Artisan's in Miniature feature some of the highest quality of miniature work and the great news is it's all for sale!
Please let us know your favourite blogs in the comments below, we love keeping track of the miniature world through these inspirational works.
Check up on Alennka's progress - maximum effort in a mini world!
26 June 2013
Alennka has been hard at work again: our Tasmanian friend has been sitting and fretting.
Not the worrying kind – but something far more constructive.
She has been adding some of the fretwork and railing detailing to her major project, Bellerose house.
It’s a wonderful update on her progress
and well worth a look.
Even if you’ve not been following her work so far you may just find yourself getting hooked!
There is a back catalogue of previous updates and information – plus a lot of good tips and advice from a whole range of intricate work.
Making your dolls' clothes their own
27 March 2013
Do you ever buy a doll to strip down and create a wonderfully imaginative costume for?
If you're into more than the building and decorating, and want to add your own touch to a scene, then getting the right characters in situ is a must.
It all depends on the era, the decor, the atmosphere and the story you're hoping to share.
This little blog, from A Faerietale of Inspiration
, simply leapt of the screen at us here at The Dolls House Emporium, so we had to share!
