A long Overdue Post and some new Miniatures

I can't believe how much time has passed since my last post... so I wanted to share a few new Miniature I've created for this upcoming Valentine's Day.  I hope you enjoy them :o)

There are some newly created 1:6 Scale Miniature "Fancy Valentine's Day Chocolate Boxes" and a lovely "Artist Showcase" section in next month's February 2017 American Miniaturist Magazine, I get so excited whenever asked to submit something for their Magazine, it is such an honor and they are so wonderful to work with. Here is a link to their website for anyone interested in picking up a copy of one of their magazines or even a digital subscription:

Bookcase Filled with 1:6 Scale Cookbooks

I found some time to fill an entire Bookcase with some of my favorite 1:6 Playscale Miniature Cookbooks.  It's so nice to see them all together like this.

They make such wonderful props when taking photos of any miniatures I am currently working on.  I especially love the Vintage ones from the 50's.

I also made a new set of Cath K. Mugs and Saucers.  

Hope you enjoy taking a peek at my beloved mini kitchen :o)

Mother's Day Tea Party

Shown are some pictures taken for the Mother's Day Feature for the American Miniaturist Magazine May 2016 ISSUE #157.  I really enjoyed creating this entire scene specifically for this issue.

My favorite part was making all of the teeny tiny Poloroid pictures and photos which show sweet images of a Mother and their Child.  They are so very touching.  

Initially I couldn't decide upon Tea or Coffee for the table scene, but in the end opted for the tea.  I did however show a picture at the very end with the coffee, I just adore the milk foam heart in the center.
I hope you enjoy the pictures :o)

Miniature Chocolates in Heart Shaped Boxes

1:12 Scale and 1:6 Scale Handmade Chocolate Filled Heart Shaped Boxes in Vintage Prints.

Many hours are spent making the Heart Shaped Boxes, making the tiny paper candy cups for the Chocolates, hand sculpting each chocolate piece and then artfully placing them inside the boxes.
I enjoy every part of the process of making these and I hope you enjoy the pictures even more :o)

Baking Fall Pies in both 1:12 & 1:6 Scale

I was inspired to bake some Fall Pies in both 1:12 Scale & 1:6 Scale.
There are so many beautiful pictures of real-life Decorative Pie Crusts to choose from, but I am especially fond of the Fall Leaf designs the most.
These are Pumpkin Spice Pies and there is also a Chocolate Tart and a Lemon Custard Tart with a sprinkling of Powdered Sugar... yum!
