dollhouse sneaky peeks and blogging

sewing room sneak peek || craftiness is not optional

ย  Just a few sneak peeks at the dollhouse progress! I’ve been working on it feverishly lately….but I apologize for the lack of interestingย  any posts lately.

I have been struggling with the balance and purpose of my blogging for the past month or so…and I’m working on it…but I wanted to say thanks for sticking with me ๐Ÿ™‚

how tos, sources, etc to come when I post all about the house in a few weeks!

bedroom sneak peek || craftiness is not optional


  1. this is so so cute! I want the same house, but in a real life size: for me!!:)

  2. This looks like the most stylish dolls house ever, and I adore the sewing room!

  3. TOO CUTE! Absolutely adorbs. ๐Ÿ™‚ NOW…was this meant to be a playtoy for the girls or a fun project for you?

  4. Absolutely precious! Looking forward to more pics! Love it!

  5. I have been loving the sneak peeks of your dollhouse on IG. My Mom built me and my sisters a dollhouse when we were little and she worked all through the night (in our neighbors garage!) to get it done by Christmas. It is one of our most treasured items from childhood! Your girls will love this forever… So special. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I was curious to know how old you and your sisters were when you got a dollhouse like this? I’m thinking about making one for my girls but they are only 5.5 and 2.5. Is that too young?

      • I had a dollhouse all growing up, I believe, not as detailed as the one I made my girls that’s for sure. you can definitely make them kid friendly!

  6. This is the cutest thing I have seen in ages! I love how the coral and mint color schemes even make it into your tiny fake house! haha

    Amazing job – I can’t wait to see all the finished pictures!!

  7. that dollhouse is really incredible and i love watching it take shape…as for the blogging angst, ((HUGS)) and just know we all go through it from time to time i guess? sometimes a little break is all i need. take care!

    • Yep so true-I usually have it every so often, just a blogging slump I guess. I usually get past it. ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Sara Speight says

    Wow! That is amazing! Your girls are so lucky!

  9. Where are you finding all the mini furniture that you didn’t make (i.e. the microwave?). I cannot wait to find out the details. We were gifted a doll house last year and it could use some, umm, updating. Bookmarking : )

  10. This dollhouse is one of my absolute favorite things ever! I just want to make my house look exactly like your little dollhouse!

  11. this doll house is amazing! I can’t wait to hear more about it. My daughter got a doll house for Christmas last year and I’d love to make some new furniture and accessories for her.

  12. Wow! I’m following your progress on instagram and it looks amazing!

  13. You keep tricking me on Instagram. I am forever thinking your doll house shots are actual rooms! We have a really old doll house in the closet downstairs and I think my daughter is finally old enough to have it. You’ve got me inspired to do it up fancy!

  14. So…When does Barbie move in?? That looks more awesome than her dream house!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Wow. That looks just amazing. I’d love to move into that kitchen. Would you please come design my kitchen for me? I need a new one and can’t find what I want for cupboards. LOL

    I sure don’t have a problem with your lack of tutorials and such. Who said a quilt/sewing blog has to be all sewing or all quilting all of the time anyway? Is there a rule book somewhere I haven’t seen? LOL Even in quilting classes they have other discussions than just about quilting, right? Others have compared blogging today to the old time quilting bees for ‘talking’ to others who share your craft and I’m pretty sure years ago those women did not just talk quilting or sewing. I’m betting they talked about their family or complained about their husbands or some such talk. So don’t feel bad. Just don’t leave. I LOVE your blog.

    • thanks Vicki! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad to hear that…so glad! and it’s true-blogs are the new quilting bees! Don’t worry, I don’t think I could ever quit blogging…just slowing down I think ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. LOVE everything about this doll house – that Kitchenaid mixer? And the sewing room?! Absolutely adorable!

  17. Oh, my goodness, you added a sewing room! I LOVE it! That is totally adorable. =)

  18. Wowee, this is a seriously impressive dolls house! I can’t wait to see more! There’s only so much time in the day, and this looks like you’re spending it very well!

  19. This doll house is so very dreamy. I am in constant awe every time I see an IG post. People love you and are invested in your creative self no matter how much you blog. So don’t worry and keep on keepin’ on.

  20. Wow. I wish I were tiny enough to live in that house.

  21. Hey Jess ! I just love your blog. I’m happy when you post anything about anything ๐Ÿ™‚
    But quite frankly – when do you sleep ? I’m tired just thinking about all you have on your plate !!!
    You have to take care of yourself… and we’ll be here waiting and loving all that you do when you have time to do it ๐Ÿ™‚
    seriously – that doll house is ADORBS !!!!

  22. Wow that looks amazing my doll house my father made more than 50 years ago finally disintegrated in this last year beyond repair so I am very sad. Enjoy all the making and sourcing of items for it

  23. Wow, you really don’t do things by halves, do you! that doll house is amazing. I’m still reeling from your glue gun party and now this!
    As for your blog, one of these posts a month and I still be a happy follower.

  24. That kitchen! So amazing.

  25. Wish we could go to lunch and compare notes on the balance and lack of balance! It’s important to stick with your priorities and remember why you do what you do–in and out of blogging! ๐Ÿ™‚ XOXO

  26. I LOVE this! I can’t wait to see where some of those cute things came from. We built my daughter a Barbie house and maybe some of these would work for her house. Adorable!

  27. That is just adorable. Wish my daughters were small again. What fun.

  28. so cute! the little sewing room and machine, the kitchen aid! where do you find these treasures?!

  29. hi there!! Im about to venture into my first dollhouse-making experience and came across your blog post!! absolutely in love with you’re final product!! Quick question…how did you do the flooring?? Not the tiles, but the brownish floor thats throughout the house. Thanks!!!

  30. Where did you get the dollhouse? like, the actual house? I’d love to start a project like this, but I don’t know where to go about looking for the structure!

    Thanks for any help or advice!


    • I found it already assembled, on Ebay. We had to pick it up though. You can get kits to build them yourself but I personally didn’t want to. ๐Ÿ™‚
