Making it Snazzy!

March 12, 2012

After some user feedback and working on 3 different prototypes, I’ve settled on a more refined and easier to assemble version of the VIKAesque wood kit. In addition to an upgraded design, the whole thing is now cut entirely from Baltic Birch plywood (previous version was a hybrid of bamboo and birch) so there should be a […]

Betwixt & Between

Oh boy, it’s been a while. Do you miss me? I sure miss everyone! I know my last few posts lacked any substance and I tried to get back into the rhythm for the holidays, but eventually decided to just take a break from miniatures and this blog for a bit. Hope you didn’t mind. I’ve […]

I finally finished uploading and editing the photos from my swap with Fabulous Fran of FranMadeMinis. There are gobs of pictures, so click the thumbnails below for a better view and my comments. It’s no surprise that my favorite is a tie between the umbrella and the suitcase; both of which are Fran’s forte. Go ahead, […]

All About the Cube Cubby

May 9, 2011

This is sort of a “making of” post on the process that went into creating the Cube Cubby. As simple the bookcase/storage unit seems, it took about a year to figure it out, only because I was testing a variety of methods to make them in the level of detail I wanted under a certain […]

I know it’s been a LONG time since I last posted.. sorry! Between working the day job, freelancing, and working on a secret project, *wink*wink* it didn’t leave me much time to blog, unfortunately. To get the ball rolling again, I just want to show off a recent purchase that I LOVE LOVE LOVE. Introducing […]

Mike’s 1:12 Stick Built Hollow Wall Dollhouse

December 18, 2010

If you’ve visit the Greenleaf forums lately, I’m sure you’ve seen Mike’s post on his stick built, hollow wall custom dollhouse. He also has a blog that he regularly updates as well. I am learning so much on how to build a dollhouse with frames, similar to how you would build a human sized house. And this […]

Custom Miniature Planters

December 17, 2010

I’ve recently had my first custom order on Etsy. Honestly, I’m still very new to Etsy, so it was pretty exciting to get a custom request. It was for a set of two miniature planters in 1:12 scale, referencing the image above. I gave the buyer a quote based on the time I expected to […]

The Modern Bookcase in Plastic

November 3, 2010

So the scene above looks vaguely familiar, but can you spot the big difference? I know, I know, the picture color is a bit washed out (sloppy editing), its missing the shelf items, and there’s the Tulip chair, but…. the big difference is that the shelf is actually a plastic reproduction! It first started when I […]
