Gingerbread Mansion Update

Woohoo! An update on my 1/144 scale gingerbread mansion!

This is what I've done: I've put all the walls and the floors, the railing added to the second floor, and the stairs installed. It's looking more like a house now.

Here is a bird view before I placed the attic floor, so you can see the staircase:

When I was putting up the second floor, some how the kit was not fitting in place, which caused the floor to bend. I was puzzled, because everything else was fitting nicely. I had to cut the slot wider to make the floor flat, which worked (thank goodness!). However, the wall papers were no longer lined up to the floor. It was too late to redo the wall papers, so I was thinking how to fix the problem. Then, *light bulb!* I cut thin strips of white paper and glued them along the bottom edges of the walls to resemble skirt moulding. They perfectly covered the imperfection and I love the look! I wish I had thought of this earlier so I could've done the first floor walls.

Now I have the roof, porch, and the balcony left to do.

Also, I started a Facebook page for Crafter's Delights! Please visit and like the page! I would feel so loved! Thanks!
