Now is a fantastic time to introduce you to another one of my fantastic friends JennyBee!
JennyBee has always had a love for all things mini since childhood and even had a Tomy Smaller Homes dollhouse and Woodsey Squirrel Log House. "I still have the family and log house to this day and the squirrels still squeak!"~JB
When she was little she was one of those kids who made things for her dollhouse or her Strawberry Shortcakes dolls. So if fabric, thread, play dough or things like that came up missing it was pretty likely Ms. JennyBee had it in a dollhouse.
"To me building dollhouses and room boxes is almost therapeutic. Most of the ones I have built over the years were given away as gifts to family or friends and then there are some that I just will not part with. No not EVER! "~JB
This house you see below is JennyBee's Thistlewood Cottage. "This kit was promoted as a garage but of course when I saw it I was just thinking cottage. I love everything about this build from the many packages of paper clay I stuck on it inside and out and then right down to the decorating. I really wanted to do something different from what I had done before and now I am completely hooked on paper clay because of it!"~JB
You can see the details in this fantastic build have all the conveniences that any woodsy witch would need to be cozy!
JennyBee is a accomplished paper clay lady who also knows how to create some fantastical greenery. I was lucky enough to have received the purple wisteria as seem on my Elven Bowery. Here she shows how she used common items to create some amazing greenery around Thistlewood Cottage.
Jenny is currently finishing the front of a Street Shop that has been waiting patiently on her shelf since the cottage build. She also has a couple things on her list for this year -
Finish the conservatory and the roof on the witch's house. Sneak in a 1/4 shop or a 1/24 scale front porch so I can decorate it for the seasons!!
JennyBee has some great shots, giveaways and explanations on her blog that are wonderful and is always available to help other mini folk ;)
"just send me a email or a comment on my blog and I'll try to explain it."~JB
