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

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 […]

October 18, 2011

This was created by ElementProductions for McDonald’s. Go watch it here. It’s a silly commercial, but I like it! I see a few custom pieces I made as some reseller stuff and some from the lovely minimodernistas as well. Wooohooo! P.S. Here’s your chance to win free mini stuff, ends soon.

I’ve had a few friendly notes from the folks at Cardboard Safari in my public spaces about the cardstock deer head that you may have caught wind of. Here’s a comment on my facebook page: And some comments on my blog:  (FYI, he did apologize for this) And here’s the conversation via Etsy: Why am […]

Amazing Happenings for Amazing Miniatures

August 19, 2011

I want to direct your attention to an article in the New York Times, written by best selling author J. Courtney Sullivan. In it, she writes about the love affair she has with dollhouse miniatures, that so many of us can relate to. But most surprisingly and significantly (for me) at the very end of the article, […]

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 […]

Pricing, Packaging, and Other Bits

August 5, 2011

This is a fairly wordy post. You have been warned.  More often than not, I am finding myself designing pieces through CAD or 3D modeling software like Cinema 4D or Google Sketchup and then fabricating it through laser cutting and (soon to be) 3D printing. It’s not how most miniaturists do it, but as a […]
