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 […]

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 […]

December 2, 2010

I mentioned to a few mini buddies that I am experimenting with tinting my resin casts. As you can see from the images, some of the results are pretty horrible.

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!

Still making stuff. This time, its a project inspired by a Barbie sized Randall Craig bookcase in a photo taken by Michael Williams of MAWPhoto.com.

Ikea Inspired: Mini Circle Table Set

August 28, 2010

This was the post that I’ve started and couldn’t find the time to finish it. I’m getting off my lazy butt now…. I am currently in the “making stuff” phase as a way procrastinating from finishing the Coventry Cottage *shifts eyes* and I thought I would show you the current project I am working on. […]

Making a Miniature Modern Twin Bed

August 21, 2010

One of the things I’ve started doing after picking up my dollhouse obsession is browsing through various online shops for furniture or room decor for inspiration. The folder now has over 200 images in it! The picture above is a life sized bed room set. It’s called Milano Chocolate set, which is fitting because it […]
