Betwixt & Between

February 9, 2012

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’m a Giant Challenge

September 22, 2011

On the Call of the Small‘s blog, the first sentence of her second paragraph started off with “Today, the lovely and funny Emily Henderson…” Why does that name sound familiar? “…winner of the HGTV show…” Ok, I remember her! I remember rooting for her on Design Star because she had a dry sense of humor (kind of like […]

Hello My Deer: Mini Cardstock Animal Trophy Head

August 16, 2011

As a treat to my email subscribers, I hinted at a project I was working on in the first newsletter sent out in July. The picture above was what I included in the newsletter. I was intentionally ambiguous. I didn’t want to make it too obvious, lest things did not turn out as expected. But […]

Hello.Shawn House Pre-Prototype Preview

August 2, 2011

Here’s what I’ve been working on in the past few months. You might have seen some clues about it posted on my facebook page. It’s an actual 1:12 dollhouse. The Hello.Shawn house is named after my annoying lovely baby brother. Okay, he’s not really a baby, being in high school and all, but since I […]

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 […]

Creatology Dollhouse with Veranda Pictorial Instructions

March 10, 2011

Ever since writing the first post on the Creatology dollhouse, I find my blog getting quite a few hits from the search engine from people who were looking for the instructions. Since I didn’t actually have instructions, I thought it would be useful to put some pictorial directions/tips together as I was assembling a new […]

Custom Miniature Artwork Framing

February 17, 2011

I get good amount of inquiries for custom miniature frames and framing projects from Etsy through the made-to-order miniature frames I listed. Then in early January, I got a huge custom order and I thought I hit the mother load! As usual. I was wrong. A general mini-framing job can be done quick and easy, but the sheer number […]

Creatology Dollhouse Considerations

February 12, 2011

Remember that Creatology Dollhouse I wrote about last summer? Nothing has been done with it since that last post (else I’d write about it, right?) and it’s currently being used as a tiny shelf in my workshop space. You can actually see it here, LOL. I am at the point where I am seriously considering finishing it […]

I Got a Fancy New…

January 26, 2011

How do you like my new purse? … or its it!? It’s really a fancy cookie box from S. Korea or Taiwan. I’am actually not sure where as the origin is not marked on the box and I can’t read the writing (whatever it is). Some distant relatives visited from somewhere (I’m not even sure where […]
