I live in the apple capital of Nova Scotia. And it’s harvest time. So, to pay homage, I have made a bunch of dollhouse apples. I’m sharing this little tutorial because this is a good starter for polymer clay fruit. To make realistic dollhouse fruit, you must first get the scale conversion right. Then it’s … More How’d ya like them (mini) apples?
I have spent too much time coveting these cuties! I think these may be my new favorite BJD. They are the picture of innocence and fun, aren’t they? Meadow dolls are from a Swedish Mother-daughter team. Their company name drew inspiration from flowers of the meadow – all unique, equally beautiful, yet complimentary to one … More My New Obsession: Meadow Dolls
As a thank-you to my small but loyal followers, I’d like to gift one of you with a small token of my appreciation. I am giving away this rainbow layer cake to someone, with 2 slices included, and I will ship anywhere in the world! I will, or course, pay the shipping. This polymer clay … More A Give-Away! : Miniature Sculpted Rainbow Cake.
My growing doll collection needed some furniture. Currently, I’m working on a bedroom diorama for our 1:8 scale BJDs (ball jointed dolls). As mentioned in another post, dollhouse furniture in 1:12 scale is quite acceptable for these dolls. In fact, it’s a very cute fit as it appears the dolls are using child-scale furniture.

Notice I said she is my ‘first’ BJD. There will likely be more, once I am done nursing some wounds (I’ll tell you later). My kids are quite enamored with her -as in all things cute and small- and now they want a piece of the action! We are already in negotiations and discussing room … More My First Ball Jointed Doll!

When I made a large amount of miniature pancakes a while back, I made these 3 cuties for something a bit different. I can’t eat the real-deal except on rare occasions. My blood sugar would sky-rocket. But these allow me enough satisfaction, so I am good. It’s a ‘look but don’t touch’ kind of thing. … More A Trio of Dollhouse Ice Cream Pancakes
Mother’s Day is coming up. That got me thinking about breakfast-in-bed…which got me thinking about pancakes…which got me thinking about pretty fruits…do you see where I am going with this? I thought for my shop I would make some pancakes and trays and also do a red grapefruit cane. In case you don’t know, I … More A Grapefruit Study & Breakfast Tray
I recently made this dollhouse cherry strudel. This was a great lesson in patience as I spent part of the day trying to perfect these cherries – cherries that are a mere 2 millimetres in diameter! The cherry ‘stems’ are not much bigger than a hair. In fact, when looking at this with the naked … More Miniature Cherry Strudel
I’m sometimes asked “how on earth did you make that?” when people see my miniatures for the first time. So, I thought I’d show a few photos with a brief description of the process. Even though it’s so tiny, it helps to think how ‘real’ food is made. Sometimes the best inspirations come from cookbooks, … More Sculpting a Mini Lemon Bundt
