Mar Giveaway!! Dolls House

Hi all! As I said in my previous post this giveaway is a dolls house and finally I found and put all pieces together and I have it ready. The house has never been put together and is brand new.
Thank you all for asking about my sister. She is better but because she has MS she will maybe never (unless they find a cure and the medicine today is moving very fast) be well.
Regarding the berries, is actually not as easy as just making a round shape on the tip of the toothpick. I  tried to attach the beads in a round shape but because I needed more layers of  those to build up a ball,  it would become too big and I would loose the scale. The toothpick is not the best because of its shape. You need to fill out the very tip where there is less wood. As Jane said in her comment, maybe attaching them to wire it would be easier to create a ball shape....but then, she said she tried and they don't come out nice so I wouldn't want to waste my time.......
 I made more things with polymer clay but it will not be me to show you those, but it will be Jennifer whenever she will get her package!! If I show you what I made I will ruin her surprise and I have already shown the berries cheesecake!
In these last 2 days I have been going around blogs to see what you have been doing and I'm getting there in visiting you all. I'm a good girl!! :) Just have a bit of patience and I'll reach you all!

The giveaway this month is a dolls house. You will receive the dolls house in pieces and then you will have to build it. Obviously I will send the plans to whoever will win the house. This is the house that was featured in the animated movie UP. It has 2  floors and you can paint it and decorated as you most like it and I might even get ideas from you on how to paint mine as I still have to build it!!!!  :)

Everybody can participate. No matter where you live. To participate you have to be a follower and leave a comment.
I will draw a name on the evening of the 1st of May. I'm choosing this date because my family is coming over to visit me and I will ask my beloved sister to pick out a name.

Good luck to all of you!!

  3. I hope your sisters recuperation is to the point where she is more comfortable I know there it is not a cure but living as comfortable as she can is a hopeful outlook.

    I tell you between the both of us we will figure out the perfect mini berry ;P

    What a generous giveaway! Please include me in your draw I will put a link on my blog.

    Hugs, js

  4. Hi Simona, I'm soooooooo excited!!!!!!! With you already sending me a beautiful package, I feel too greedy to join your gorgeous, generous giveaway, but I'll go post it on my blog now. Good luck, everyone! This dollhouse is a beautiful treasure, and the winner will be jumping up and down with joy! xo Jennifer

  5. Hi Simona, what a beautiful giveaway. Please count me in. :)
    I will be adding a link to it on my blog in just a moment.

    I'm a bit behind on my blog reading list, it's going to take some time for me to really catch up. This post was the first thing I saw when I logged in, so here I am. I saw your attempt at berries, Have you tried sewing pins? If a toothpick is too thick for a project I'm working on-I switch to pins. I know you're ruling out wire, but in my experience wire is flimsy compared to a straight pin.

    I'm also happy to hear that your sister is doing better-They will find a cure for MS, hopefully very soon. :)

    Best wishes,

  6. You are being too generous with this lovely giveaway. Of course I want to win the adorable house, although I have no idea where I would put it, should I be so lucky. I will add a link on my blog.

    Hugs, Johanna

  7. I know there is a medicine which can stop M.S. attacks. Soon there will probably be a cure too.
    Meanwhile let's pray that it keeps on hold.
    Your giveaway is very generous. Please count me in. If I'll be lucky to win, it will be my first dollhouse.
    Your link will be on the sidebar of my blog.
    Thanks and hugs, Drora

  8. I'd love to enter your fab draw - so I do hope you'll count me in.
    Put a link to my blog.
    MiniHugs. Irina

  9. Hi Simona! I can tell you nothing new about the cure of MS for your sister, I am glad she is doing better now.
    I hope you'll find a solution for the berry-problem. Those tiny things can be a big problem difficult to find out.
    Your giveaway is very generous, WOW! I would love to participate, so please, count me in. I'll put a link on my blog.
    I wish you a good week.
    Hugs, Ilona

    Great for you that you get family visit, I hope you will get some lovely and pleasant days, when the time comes.

  15. Me gustaría participar en el sorteo, no sé si puedo, vivo en España. De todas formas, lo comparto en mi blog y te doy ánimos con lo de tu hermana, no sabía nada. Besos y gracias por tu generosidad, es un regalo muy bonito y la casa es preciosa. ¡Feliz semana!

  16. I loved that Movie, please count me in.. MS is a terrible disease hopefully they will find a cure soon


  17. A big hug to your sistter! The litle house is very nice. Today I send you my gift. Hugs.

  18. I found your blog via another and am in love with your little berries! I'm quite a berry-holic myself (even have a tattoo of a strawberry on my shoulder). I have some of those little no-hole beads somewhere and then I can try to follow your lovely instructions. I hope your sister gets better soon and am a firm believer in eating whole foods, avoiding all processed things and cleansing the body and mind properly in order to feel more like a whole person. My own blog is sadly, quite forgotten these days, as I'm building a few Greenleaf kits at the same time and the little people are quite demanding!

  19. Hi Simona!

    I'm sorry I haven't visited your blog in a little bit. I'm way behind on everyone's blog due to personal reasons but not as important as yours. I wanted you to know that I will have you and your sister and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Please take care.

    I thought your dishes giveaway was generous but this, wow Simona. I would be honored to be included in your giveaway please. I love that movie :-) Are you going to do yours like the movie or is that what you are still trying to decide? Thank you Simona for this opportunity. You are a very generous soul :-)


  20. It's good to hear you're sister's feeling a little bit better... sorry to hear that she's suffering from MS. And now let me thank you for keeping up with my blog - for reading and commenting EVERY single post you have missed in the meantime... really, this touched my heart! I'm curious to see what treasures Jennifer will receive from you, let's hope mail will do a good and fast job. And about your giveaway... being the lucky one having won your last giveaway I shouldn't participate... no, I should leave this chance to the others... but Carl's home from UP... *sigh* Too much temptation for me, so please count me in... I've already announced it in my sidebar.


  21. Mis mejores deseos para tu hermana.
    Me gustaría participar en tu sorteo, no se si es posible por que vivo en España.

  25. hi... I just know about Miniature Dollhouse recently..
    In Dec, 2012, I had done 1 miniature house, but it didn't fit any scale at all...
    this year, I'm trying to make a dollhouse with 1:24 scale by scratch. Everything is hard, because in my country (Viet Nam) they don't have enough materials, and don't have a group of person who like to make dollhouse like me (maybe because houses in VN are small)...
    So I hope to make friend with you, so that I can learn more about this...
    I don't have a blog, just facebook :D
    here is my miniature house... The house make by my boyfriend (he gave me at Xmas), I done the decor thing.
    Ps: sorry for my bad english

  26. What a neat dollhouse - I'd love to buy a kit for myself where are these sold? (or are the custom?) I'm a huge Pixar/Disney fan :)

  27. Wow, that is so very generous of you! I would LOVE to win! Its hard to find dollhouses you can build yourself here in Sweden, so I will keep my fingers crossed I can win this. The day before my birthday too, would make a great present ;)
    I added a link to my sidebar.
    Hope you will have a great time when your family comes to visit!

    1. That's a date to remember then!!!! Wed, the 30th of Apr!! Your birthday??

I have just had a look through your blog and think the needle felted house is brilliant, especially with the plants on the outside. Needle felting is something I really want to have a go at. So far I've got as far as buying a needle! I would love to participate in your generous giveaway. The house is really sweet and has so much potential for a project. I will add a link to my blog.
