Undersized Urbanite Contest

I am taking this dollhouse passion to the next level by joining a contest.  Last year, I was amazed at the entrants in a contest called "I'm a Giant", and, although it ended, or didn't, on a sour note, it still seemed like something that I wanted to try.  So today I found out about a new challenge, and immediately signed up.  At the moment, I am not expecting to win, I just need a goal to motivate me.  The contest is called the Undersized Urbanite, and I'm encouraged that it is not starting out with all sorts of designers and the stylish set.  It seems to be more populated by normal people, with full-time jobs, and a hobby that they like to share.

I have no idea what I'm going to do in this project.  I don't have mood boards, I don't have a grand vision.  I'm not even sure if I should paint it, as it is a collectible house and it's in really good shape.  I may make false walls and affix them non-permanently, which will add a level of complexity that I probably don't need.  I believe I'm going to make a new floor from popsicle sticks, but we'll see.  I may try to weave a stair runner on my miniature loom.  Let's see how my fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants project turns out.  Here's what my dollhouse looks like today, so that when the miraculous redo is complete, we can all look back and marvel.


  1. I'm in there with you, not to win, to learn to have fun and hopefully get something done by the deadline, looking forward to your updates!

  2. So glad you joined Linda! I look forward to your progress. :)
