2017 Creatin Contest Kit

The 2017 HBS Creatin Contest kit is here.  It's not in stock, however,  you can order it now. I really like the look of this one. The Craftsman Cabin features four full walls and removable roof. Fun, Fun, Fun...I am definitely gonna buy it, not entering the contest though. Can't wait to see how creative you guys get bashing this kit. Happy New Year to all!!!

Where is Everyone?

I have noticed a decline in Blog posts over the last year or so…Why? I know I am guilty of not posting often, mainly because I haven’t much to share.  I am still working on minis as time permits. I think I got my "Mo-Jo" back, I  have some new projects and will be sharing soon. I have discovered some great Miniature Groups via Facebook and Instagram.  I would like to share a miniaturist who I discovered late one night on YouTube. Her name is Laurie Heisler.  Her page is full of tutorials, templates, and Ah Ha moments. Check it out here Laurie Heisler YouTube Channel or Blog.  Really neat stuff there.  Some of the work that’s being done on this years’ HBS Creatin’ Contest is amazing.  You guys always blow my mind with your creativity and innovation.  Can’t wait to see the finish projects.  I have often wondered why I don’t see more miniaturists using Cork Board to make bricks. After sharing my work with a Facebook group in hopes of finding someone who has successfully used Cork Board as brick, I was referred to another miniaturist page Handmade Miniatures by Alma.  I was excited to see that it could be done and look so realistic. I still consider myself a novice in the world of miniatures.  Anyway, hope you don’t mind the shout outs of other miniaturist.  We should share, promote, and encourage each other.  Below are some pictures of my Cork Board bricks for the round structure of The Citadel by Lolly's. I attached the adhesive bricks to clear contact paper and added tacky glue for a firm hold. Then I randomly added bricks to look as though they were pushed out. I used Spackle as grout to fill the gaps. This sealed the bricks which was good to prevent the cork from crumbling. The last pic is the image a googled for reference. Painting is next.

Until next time…

Miniatures in Commerials


I love it when miniatures get real life exposure. This commercial is cute. And for those of us who has attempted to fit a miniature house in a vehicle and know the struggle, it an impressive feat for this Fiat.

Still trying to get back in the swing of things...its coming along.

Until next time...

Hello...Its me

How are you Mini friends doing? Yes, its been awhile. My life has changed in so many ways since  my last post. I lost my beautiful Grandmother in February. I was fortunate enough to spent time with her and hold her hand before she passed. I loved her dearly and have a lifetime of great memories, she will be missed. In January I took a much needed vacation via Cruise ship and one of the destinations was Saint Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. There I visited a museum in St. George and guess what I found? Yep, Miniatures.  Not sure of the scale but they were pretty cool. Here are some pictures and sorry the quality is not that great. Hopefully I will have some updates on my own projects soon.

Until next time, enjoy.
