Rainy Weekend Project: Mini books!

I wasn’t exactly sure of what I would receive, but 30 mini books under $15 seemed like a good deal to me. This kit is called “My Miniature Library” and you can find it at Amazon at an affordable price. Also, I don’t shy away from spending a day cutting and folding paper (it wasContinue reading “Rainy Weekend Project: Mini books!”

Making minis for my girls…

This is where my obsession all started. After watching a few youtube tutorials on making doll food, I thought I would give it a whirl. Money was tight and I had 3 little girls who loved their dolls. I felt confident I could make some cute foods for their barbies…and so I went to Michael’sContinue reading “Making minis for my girls…”

Pepperoni Pizza in 1:6 Scale

I made this as a gift for a customer. She collects miniatures in 1:6 scale. Clay Pizza is fun but also time consuming. This took most of the day but it was worth it. I hope she is pleasantly surprised when it arrives! Some day, when I have this process down to a science, IContinue reading “Pepperoni Pizza in 1:6 Scale”

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)”

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?”

Cold Porcelain Clay (part 2)

This is just a quick follow-up post on my experiment with the clay I made yesterday. After I made the clay, I packed it into a nice ball and ‘greased’ it a bit with some baby lotion and tightly wrapped it in saran wrap. This afternoon, I put it to the test with a fewContinue reading “Cold Porcelain Clay (part 2)”

My thoughts on ‘Cold Porcelain Clay’

So, I kept seeing posts on cold porcelain clay on Pinterest and YouTube and I decided to give it a try. If you don’t know what I’m referring to, it’s a type of clay which can be made at home with very few ingredients. It’s mainly ┬ácornstarch and glue, with a bit of baby oilContinue reading “My thoughts on ‘Cold Porcelain Clay’”

Time to make the donuts…

Valentine’s weekend left me with a full heart and chocolate withdrawal. The only way to get my fix was to make some donuts. It didn’t matter that they weren’t edible, they were still satisfying. The weekend allowed us to put together a small light box from a wooden frame and vellum panels. Until I getContinue reading “Time to make the donuts…”
