It's that time of year again and time to make those all-important resolutions.
Here are some suggestions that will help you get the most out of your miniatures hobby... so why not take a look and see if any will suit you!
Spend more time on your dolls' house so you can relax and enjoy some therapeutic, "me" time.
Make use of that kit you haven't started yet; watch a Masterclass tutorial
or two for some inspiration!
Re-decorate your dolls' house in a totally different period.
Get someone else interested in dolls' houses as a relaxing hobby, perhaps a grandchild or friend, particularly if they find it difficult to get out and about.
Choose carefully from the monthly offers to get more for your money.
Start a new, small build project - experiment a little and let your imagination loose!
Be sure you've entered your Birthday details online

Children say 'thank you' to The Dolls House Emporium
23 December 2013
We had a lovely surprise here at Dolls' House HQ today when two lovely hand-made Thank You cards arrived from a school we helped out with a charitable donation.
We sent four children's dolls' houses and lots of children's dolls off to Standhill Infants' School in Nottingham for their reception classes to make use of in lessons.
The youngsters were so pleased that Class 1 and Class 2 sent us these beautiful cards, which inside had pictures the children had drawn themselves!
All we can say, Standhill, is that it was a pleasure! We hope you enjoy them and get lots of use from them over the years.
Great Train Robbery in miniature
18 December 2013
The mystique surrounding The Great Train Robbery - no matter what you think of the crime - continues to intrigue us all.
One miniature maker, David Guy, made the train robbers' hide-out in 1:12 scale for our Creative Competition this year.
He used The Cabin
as his basis and sent dozens of photos showing how he made the interior and exterior evoke the drama of the 1963 crime.
Here is a series of images from the finished project, which we'd like to share today.
Fairbanks dolls' house - Austrian-style!
5 December 2013
Here at Dolls' House HQ we've kindly been sent some images of Fairbanks dressed in Austrian style!
This one has been specially converted by Christine Hofbauer to introduce an attic and two roof terraces in traditional style.
She says: "Because of this and because of the changing facade I created a very beautiful and big Austria-version."
Thank you Christine for allowing us to share your project from Vienna!
