Don't think I've mentioned these before...
Miniature Collector magazine, published by Scott Publications, carries a regular feature called "Kids' Corner" which is a one page tutorial for dollhouse accessories. These are not only for kids but many are wonderful for adults. Even if you don't use the ideas as written, sometimes they give you starting points for your own ideas. Over 60 of these tutorials are online so you might want to check them out.
Also on their website are searchable indexes of the magazine from 1993 - 2010.
If you have a collection of miniature magazines and can't remember what issue a particular tutorial was in, you might want to try the project database on the N.A.M.E. website. It covers projects published in 8 American publications (American Miniaturist, Dollhouse Miniatures, Kimberly Corner*, Little Enough News*, Miniature Collector, Miniature Showcase*, NAME Miniature Gazette, Nutshell News* - publications marked with an asterisk are no longer being published.) One thing I will mention is that if you're searching for Christmas items, search Xmas.
http://miniatures.about.com/ is also a good source for tutorials. And you can also sign up for Leslie's weekly newsletter to keep up to date on what's available.
