Can it be Dark and Dreary and a Great Day?

I picked out the colors for my dollhouse today!  Yup, finally took the plunge.  I selected three colours for it, all on the historical registry. Not sure that was really important as my house is going to be a reflection of everything I like, can find or make at a reasonable price. The middle color will be on the main body of the house, the beige color will be the trim and the windows will be the not quite white on the right.  And if I don't like it when it's done, I'll just paint it again, lol.  Though I've agonized on the color, it is after all a dollhouse and the cost of the paint isn't excrutiating!



I'm also working on a sample for an address book... yes I know I've got an iPhone and a computer, but I'd like a paper backup, LOL!  Haven't you lost your address list at least once when you changed cell phones and then your computer which you were relying on to keep your backup safe crashed? I still haven't recovered all the numbers from the last crash and besides a friend of mine, Barb in Sask said she wanted one.  I'm making this from scratch cardboard sheets and truly enjoying the process!

Though as you can tell, I'm a messy scrapper!

I haven't decided if I should use rings, or my zutter with wires.  What do you think? Just looking at the picture of my mess, I think Melody Ross, would like my mess!  I'll have to ask her!

I think the colors will look great on your house. I think we are all messy when we scrap, except Theresa. She is really neat and organized.

Great colors for the doll house, of course I'm partial to green. I really like the address book. That is a great idea. I need to do something with my broken box that my address cards are in. Thanks for the inspiration.

Love your desk too. I'm thinking of getting a 2nd table in my craftroom since the one I have is covered with knitting machines.

The colors should be very nice and the phone book looks good. I like the zutter for binding but I also like being able to add or subtract pages too! You know so you can update as needed. There should be pockets inside to hold change of address cards and return address slips you tear off envelopes untill you finally add them to the book properly. A place for great quotes would be great or even to have them dispused throughout the book. By the way you can't have a neat scraparea and be creative too!
