Side quest 2: decorating tiny beds.

I signed up for another library side quest. I will be dressing miniature beds with kids next month. I’m hoping this goes as well as the tables did. I have already made one sample piece for this project. I started with this bed I purchased at Dollar Tree: The first thing I needed to do…

Santa’s desk

Welcome back from the holidays. What a busy and exhausting few weeks.I enjoy the holidays but I always feel relief when life gets back to its normal pace. With everything that needed to be done for Christmas, I didn’t have a lot of time for miniatures. I have been slowly working on Santa’s desk, which…

A fireplace finally finished.

Hello my loves! I bet you thought that, after the last post, the fireplace was done. It was not. For a day or so I thought it was but I was wrong. Here is the rest of the fireplace. First, I felt that the mantle wasn’t full enough, so I decided to make some candlesticks…

The Christmas tree and the fireplace

This week I have been working on the Christmas tree and fireplace. Even with the little village, the fireplace was too plain for Christmas at Santa’s house. I found this garland at Joann’s and it is just the right size: I cut off an appropriate length and shaped it into a swag. I decided that…

The Christmas fireplace:

I decided that the fireplace needed further embellishment, so I decided to add a Christmas village to the mantle. One of my most useful purchases from when I first started doing miniatures is this bag of “laser poop” I picked up at a miniatures convention in Sturbridge, MA. These are left over bits from someone’s…

Walls, floor, and a fireplace

I’ve been working on my Christmas scene today. I kind of love the wall paper I chose. I found the image on Pinterest, shrunk it down, and made two 8.5 by 11 inch sheets. That was enough to paper the inside of the mailbox. Here’s the image: The floor will be parquet. I found this…

Side Quest, part 3

The class at the library was yesterday morning and it went brilliantly! My students were all very creative and surprisingly patient. There were four girls: Lily, Chloe, Alicia and Ayla. Ayla was the youngest at 8 years old. Here’s her table: And here is Alicia’s, she’s the next youngest: This is Alicia’s mom’s table: Here…

Memories of Christmas

I’ve been dragging my heels a little on the Christmas miniature. I’m not feeling much on the way of holiday spirit yet, and because I need a little downtime between projects. Just now though, I remembered something from two years ago. My parents and I were at the kitchen table, and we were trying to…

Side Quest, part 2

My class at the library is this weekend, so I have been focusing on getting ready for that. As of last Wednesday, there were six people signed up. In the meantime, the project has taken over my dining room. I’m looking forward to getting some space back. The kits are mostly finished, though I need…

It’s beginning to look a little like Christmas.

Almost a week has passed since I completed the music room and I am about ready to begin a new project. Next up on the table will be a Christmas scene that will be built in this: I have already begun the rug and have been deciding on the wallpaper. Obviously, there will be a…
