Is it a farm stand for your dollhouse? Or maybe a booth at a carnival? Or maybe a place to sell the flowers you grew in your miniature greenhouse! This versatile little addition can even pull double duty as a animal pen if you leave the front panel off. The possibilities are endless! The sign is included so you can promote whatever it is you decide on. Like the miniature greenhouse, this addition can be used on either side of your spring fling kit, or for that matter, any dollhouse kit! We will be introducing this kit at a reduced price for the spring fling, so stay tuned for details!
As we are getting closer to launching the 2012 Spring Fling, it’s time to start getting excited and what can be more exciting than a miniature greenhouse as an add on room! As you can see in the three pictures, this is one handsome looking kit! Yes, it’s laser cut. Yes it will come with plastic for the windows, but hold on, we are also including screen so you can make it a screened in sitting room (my pop has one of these on his house to keep out the mosquitoes). And yes, you can put two back to back and make a complete greenhouse! The great thing about this kit is that though it fits on the spring fling contest kit, it will also fit on most of our dollhouses. We will be introducing it at reduced price for the spring fling, so stay tuned for details!
Howdy everyone! I just a quick update to let you know what’s happening with the 2012 Spring Fling. We had a project about 90% complete and then last week, I decided to change direction. What happened? I was gassing up my Jeep and watched the pennies (then dollars) spin by like the dial on HG Wells’s time machine. The fact is that there’s a lot of pressure on our budgets lately and I don’t want people to have to sacrifice somewhere else to participate in this contest. So we’re getting old school with a project delivered for under $20… something more along the lines of the Loganberry Mill. Yes, the kit will be laser cut and yes, there will be a few affordable options, but they’ll change the feel of the project rather than the overall scope of it.
Unfortunately this delayed the launch date until next week, but it will be worth the wait. To make up for this, the contest will run through Labor Day! I’m posting a picture of the roof as a little teaser… stay tuned for more!
Another sneak peak at a few of the options that will be available for this years Spring Fling dollhouse. Up on top we have the Cupola Kit which can drastically change the appearance of your project. Big and bold, it looks great on not just the main house, but the additions too!
The middle photo is the Dormer Window Kit. Dormer-style windows have a long history in American architecture, and now you can add one to either the base house or the additions in a blink of an eye! For you kit bashers, adding a whole in the roof will make it fully functional! This little window is the perfect addition to any dollhouse!
Last we have the Roof Finials! Fitted to decoratively emphasize the apex of the roofs, they are said to pull double duty (by those who are superstitious) to ward off evil spirits! The finials are made of our thinner maple plywood to stay true to scale.
Of course, all of these items are laser cut with the precision of a Jedi Master. You will find them at a deep discount when we launch our Spring Fling contest next week!
As the clock runs down to our fifth annual Spring Fling Contest, I have a few new top secret photos to wet your appetite. The question is, what goes between these two additions… you’ll need to stay tuned! All I can say is that both of these affordable additions will be available in a right and left hand version and all of them come with two faux door frames to complete the illusion of being attached to the main doll house. The roofs will be configurable to match the contest kits roof line or positioned further toward the front of the house. So with the base house, that’s nine different ways to configure this dollhouse! These bad boys may also look great attached to one of your current dollhouses, so be sure to catch them at a discount next week!
As the days get longer and the snow beings to melt, it can only mean one thing… the Greenleaf Spring Fling is just around the corner! This years project will set a new standard in expandability which will allow even the timid to bash their kit into a one of a kind creation!
We decided to expand off the concept of last years project kit, now know as the Baslow Ranch, which was a base kit with an optional addition. We will again be offering a very handsome base model at an affordable delivered price, but there will be many optional enhancement available to customize your project. The picture above is just one of those items; a stair case/upper deck kit which can attach to the project kit (or for that matter, any of our dollhouses) in many different ways. This option will come with two door frames so you can add a faux door to complete its appearance.
Besides the stair case/upper deck kit, we will be offering additions, roof enhancements and maybe even platform bases on which you can display your project. All of these items will be offered at a deep discount during the contest. Stay tuned for more details over the coming weeks and remember; Spring is almost here!
Introducing Our Fourth Annual Spring Fling Contest
Greenleaf is proud to announce the start of our fourth annual Spring Fling Contest! Last years contest was such fun, we decided to step it up a notch with a laser cut dollhouse kit! The Winners Garage is just what you need to get you in the spring mood! It’s a unique house with a lot of potential and we honestly can’t wait to see what you do with it!
Just like last year, we are making it extra interesting; we’re going to name this new building after the winner! That’s right, instead of the Winners Garage, we’ll rename it after you - for example, The Loganberry Mill! Now how cool is that?
In an effort to keep the contest affordable, we are offering this years contest house with an add-on room upgrade option. Please refer to the picture below and maybe it will spark your imagination. You may select this option at the time of purchase for an additional charge.
The design challenge was a little dicey this year. Our mission was to present an interesting project at an affordable price. You might say that these two goals are Greenleaf’s age old mission statement, but we were determined to expand on this with a laser cut dollhouse. The laser cutting process is much more time consuming than our traditional line of die cut dollhouses, so naturally, it affects the pricing. I know that many of you have been chomping at the bit to get a look at one of our laser cut dollhouse kits, so we needed a solution. The roof upgrade option worked well in last year’s contest, so we decided to do something similar. The core project will be offered at a fantastic delivered price with the option to add this addition for an extra charge. Please note that this add-on will only be available at the time of purchase.
It’s starting to feel like spring here at Greenleaf! Even though there’s still over a foot of snow on the ground, I wore shorts to work today! Why? Because this year’s Spring Fling contest house has me boiling over with enthusiasm! In fact, I’m so excited; I decided to release this picture of the contest house! So I introduce to you, the Winner’s Garage!
As I previously mentioned, this year’s project is entirely laser cut so everyone can see for themselves what all the fuss is about. I’m sure that those of you who are new to laser cutting will be amazed and veterans will continue to be impressed at the level of detail and ease of assembly.
The optional addition for this project adds a whole new dimension to the kit, but I decided to sit on the photos for another week… you’re going to love it! The great thing is it’s just that; and option. All entries will be judged in the same category equally. Stay tuned to see more next week!
