Wishing you a Merry Christmas.....

Merry Christmas and Happy Kwanzaa to all who celebrate..

I just wanted to to share my Christmas at PopPops with you all. I made this scene and it all was focused around the tree. The tree was the first miniature that I chose for the room. I let the room tell me how it wanted the tree to be portrayed and I was pleased with how this three day project turned out. I actually had finished it on Christmas day. I didn't think that I was going to, but was glad and proud that I did.

The scene is PopPop has his granddaughter Samantha over on Christmas day and she is just in love with all the gifts that PopPop has given her in her wagon, but she doesn't realize the real true gift is under the table with a bow around her neck just waiting for her to realize that she is there. PopPop was wondering how he was going to keep the gift a surprise and decided to keep the pup entertained by feeding her so he was pleased that she was hungry and has stayed..LOL

The fireplace lights up, just as the two wall sconces on the wall does. PopPop wants to state that his tree was straight before he had an episode with the pup right before Samantha's arrival so he couldn't fix it. It was leave the tree in it's state or ruin the surprise of the pup for Samantha. He went for the obvious choice since it doesn't seem that she even noticed the tree. :) Sorry!!

I want to wish all a blessed Christmas from me and my family to you and yours. PopPop and Samantha wants to wish you a Merry Christmas as well and would love to see your comments on their place. Thanks...

Interesting Video: How cool to be miniaturized for our hobby!

Check out this link for a robot nurse. I immediately thought how cool if we could have a miniaturized doll version in our own dollhouse..Gives new meaning to things coming to life. I am sure that kids would really become interested in the hobby if they could literally control the doll in their dollhouse.. It is scary to think about on a human level, but I think it might be interesting in a miniaturized world.

Until next time...

NAME Day Event- Pawling, NY


I went yesterday to NAME Day held by M-1 Region. The above hutch was the item made by all. The sizes available were 1", 1/2" and 1/4". Debbie Columbo and her crew of ladies did a great job. The day started at 8am with registration and continental breakfast. There was lunch with beverage, chips and sandwiches,wrap or salad. There was also lots of chocolate available for instant energy..Yummy!!!! There was also afternoon classes available for us. Great items available for sale also from vendors. I have shown a few photos of the display that one of the ladies had made to display at the event. You will see her 1" hutch in the scene. The wonderful thing about this scene is it is done inside of a wine box.

Here are some of the wonderful silent auction items.

I hope that you enjoy the pictures that I have posted and if there was anyone that was at a NAME Day in their state I would love to see pictures.

IGMA Show: Betsy Niederer

Hello all,

I went to the IGMA show on Sunday and I am still trying to catch my breath from all the wonderful things that I have seen.. I would like to take the time to introduce Betsy Niederer or should I even have to introduce her. LOL!! I went there and she was selling her wonderful goodies. I have included a few of the pictures that I took of some of her items. I hope that you enjoy them as much as I have..

Betsy's demo showing you how to make breads. I found this really nice and to see the children attentive to what Betsy was saying was a great feeling of how the future of miniatures can progress if we share with the children from now.

Wonderful cheese, sausage, breads and other goodies on this table..

This table has a meal in progress and please if you get hungry contact Betsy..LOL!!!

Thank you Betsy for allowing me to post your pictures and being so nice each time that I have met you. Your work is wonderful and continued success..

It's Been A Long Time!! Part 2

Hello again,

I guess it is because I haven't been blogging in a while the Bloggers Angels were upset with me and my first page didn't end as I would have liked it to continue in part 2..LOL

Here is the last find that I think is great for all miniaturist. We are always looking for clay cutters and some are too expensive for the beginner with a budget so I think that Sculpey Premo has created a great set especially if you use a 40% off coupon. Can you believe the whole set is $5.99, plus add the savings with a coupon-run to you local Michaels..LOL

I will keep you posted on any further bargains that I find..

Until next time,

It's Been A Long Time!!!

Hello Followers,

I know that it has been a long time but you know how life can be and re-route us from the norm. Although things are not fully back on track I have decided that I must try to focus myself back on my blog. I was just starting out when I had been detoured. I am going to try and keep up with it a little better than before and will love it if you send positive thoughts out in the universe for me..Thanks in advance...
Well since I am back I thought that it was best to start out with some great new finds and interesting bargains..LOL
The items are all from Michaels and remember with a 40% off coupon they are well worth the price.. The first two items need no coupons as they are $1.00 items.. :)

The next two items are coupon worthy as is the last one.. They are new Sculpey molds. The first is a Fairy mold.

The second is a Baby mold. Can you imagine all the possibilities with these molds.. Woo Hoo!!!
