Tempting treats to break a tooth on (or my unusually productive day)

I really don’t know what got into me. I must have been inspired by something. Because today I made some sweets…lots and lots of sweets…. Blueberry and strawberry desserts…. And a flaky, buttery cookie with sprinkles…..(I had to try out my bright sprinkles) And finally, cupcakes in 1:6 scale…. I did manage to get oneContinue reading “Tempting treats to break a tooth on (or my unusually productive day)”

Polymer Clay Floor Tiles

Do you remember when I started these polymer clay tiles for my first dollhouse? Well, they are finished! And now I am installing them in the upper level of my dollhouse. Installation is near completion and then I will ‘grout’ them with a mixture of acrylic paint and light weight spackle (the fluffy white kind).Continue reading “Polymer Clay Floor Tiles”

Cherrylicious!!

  Yesterday I whipped up a batch of polymer clay cherries. Then I mixed up some cherry sauce from fimo, clay from my cherry batch, and soft pastels. It was my best cherries yet, so I went all out and made a bunch of desserts with it! Two of my favourite cakes; Cherry Cheesecake andContinue reading “Cherrylicious!!”

Realistic Dollhouse Floor Tiles

This weekend, I continued working on my dollhouse. After finishing the lower level floor from millions of skinny sticks, I turned my attention to the upper level. After I regained feeling in my fingertips! Once finished, the dollhouse is going to be a confectioner’s shop! The sweet lady who owns it will work out ofContinue reading “Realistic Dollhouse Floor Tiles”

Dollhouse Breads

    This past week I focused more on dollhouse scale miniatures, as I am starting my first dollhouse build. I’m very excited to complete it (and share it with you all)… but I have to constantly remind myself to slow down and focus on all the tiny details! Tiny details are the best partsContinue reading “Dollhouse Breads”

Carol’s ‘Acorn & Beet’ Cookie Necklace

“They’re pink” “Beets” “Beets?” “Beets…it’s what makes them sweet” “I’m not really a beet kind of guy” “just put it in your mouth, jerk” If you are a Carol fan from The Walking Dead you remember those lines from a recent episode. Carol is my favourite. I love the duality of her nature. On oneContinue reading “Carol’s ‘Acorn & Beet’ Cookie Necklace”

BBQ Ribs & Baked Potato for 18 Inch Dolls

I made these today as I thought about BBQs getting fired up soon. It occurred to me that little girls should have some BBQ food for their dolls too. And if the dolls should have food, why not make it realistic? There are lots of plastic mass produced doll food in the big box stores…butContinue reading “BBQ Ribs & Baked Potato for 18 Inch Dolls”

A Mini Succulent Garden

  This weekend brought news that we were in for more snow Monday. I have seriously had my fill of winter!!! I could wait no longer for spring…if the real blooms aren’t happening, I was going in search of some faux ones. Normally, I’m not a fan of silk flowers and fake plants, but Michael’sContinue reading “A Mini Succulent Garden”

Favourite Pie?

Spring has sprung (or it’s trying) and soon the valley fruits of Nova Scotia will be too. I can’t wait! I see homemade jams and pies in my near future….     For now, I’ve baked up some faux ones. At the top of our family favourites are blueberry (my husband’s pick) and my favouriteContinue reading “Favourite Pie?”

Cookies in Clay (a recipe)

  Chocolate chip cookies have to be one of my favourite foods to shrink down. They aren’t exactly easy, as there are several stages of texturing and shading, but call me crazy, it’s almost therapeutic. To achieve realism -if that is the look you are going for- it’s all about the texturing and shading. IContinue reading “Cookies in Clay (a recipe)”
