A Place For New Miniature Builders to Learn, Build, and Grow
Welcome miniature lovers! I’m Rachel, and here’s what you need to know.
You’re probably here because (like me) you love miniatures. And, (like me), you have no idea where to start.
That’s why this whole website is here. To help newbies learn how to get started with miniatures.
Having my own miniature dollhouse (a painted lady, to be exact) has always been a dream of mine. Ever since I fell in love with the Fairy Castle at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, I’ve wanted my own miniature dollhouse.
But, as you may know, it’s an expensive hobby. For a long time, I didn’t have the money. Once I had the money, I realized I didn’t have the time. Even if I could find the time, it would require patience and artistic skill.
Guess what I’m kind of lacking in?
At the end of 2018, let’s just say I found myself with a lot of time on my hands. So, I figured I could finally pursue my miniature hobby and build that painted lady.
Like most people, I headed to the Internet to see where to start. And that’s where I ran into problems. Sure, I found some advice (like, don’t start with a painted lady!), but there weren’t a lot of resources for newbies like me. You know, people that figure plain old white glue works on everything. (Spoiler alert: it doesn’t!)
That’s how this website came to be. I wanted to create a resource for beginners who want to build miniature dollhouse but don’t know where to start!
