Some new stuff for Etsy

Today I finished some new things for my Etsy shop.
My brother made me two little bookcases and one off them
I filled with all sorts off things someone would need
to collect and study mushrooms.
It took me some time but I'm quite happy with how it looks now.
I also made a mushroom potion prepboard and a little mushroom
recipy-writing board.
I will be listing them on Etsy this afternoon.

Welcome and Christmasbox update

Today I finished the floor of the Christmas box that i'm making.
First I used my multi-tool to engrave floorboards.

While I was at it, I killed a Flower Fairy in the process;-)
I really wanted him to be a "Santa's little helper",
but they don't have wings, now do they?
So I engraved them off and sanded his back with my multi-tool
and painted the white spots to match his shirt.
I think he's very proud of himself now;-)

Then I aged the floorboards with "Patina".

After that I painted the whole Christmas box for the last time and when it's dry, I can finally put up the wallpaper and start decorating;
my favorite part;-)
I already aged the cupboard I had, because it was way to shiny
and put some things in it.

Last but not least, I want to Welcome two new followers!
They are: Patrisan and Fiver.
They make wonderfull miniatures,
so be sure to see their blogs, if you haven't already;-)

Yesterday I finished some mushrooms. I had made the stems a while ago; they were my first try and a little bit bigger then I wanted. But because I used glow-in-the-dark polymer clay for them, I thought it was a waste to throw them away. So yesterday I decided I would simply make some larger hats for them, a bit fairytale like, so I made them of purple polymer clay and gave them a metalic shiny gloss. The "largest" one is 2,5cm/1 inch. It took me quite some time but they turned out really well, I think;-)


A very warm welcome to five more new followers!

They are: Marit from Black Cat cottage
Mari@ from Il Cucchiaino Magico
Linda from Shop-around-thecorner
and Natalia from (sorry, couldn't find a miniature blog)
and Clara from La vida en miniatura

My miniatures going around the world

Wow, I'm a little speechless right now.
Two days ago I opened my own Etsy store.
I thought I would give it a try. This morning I listed this wonderful
Mushroom prepboard that I made

and what do you think...I already sold it!!
To someone in the U.S. My miniatures are going around the world,
can you believe it? I'm so excited;-)

Witchy things

Managed to make some witch books and (glow in the dark)
mushrooms for my witch house today.

The mushrooms are 2,5cm/1 inch high including the pot.

The biggest book is allmost 3cm/1,1 inch tall
and I used a real feather (from my fathers chickens)
which I cut into shape, for the pen in the inkpot.

Gruesome find and swap anyone?

Last summer I was in the park with my sister and our children. On the way back we walked on the path that was intended for mopeds and bicycle's because that was easyer for the babypram.
And then my little daughter did a creepy find. On the pad there were several miniature frogs; flattened by the mopeds and dried by the sun. My sister was feeling sick to her stomach but I couldn't resist; I had to have some. I picked up two (now wish I had been braver and taken more;-) and brought them home with me. They have been in a jar on my shelf the whole time, but as I decided I would make a witchhouse I rembered them again. So now the one on the right is going to be framed and hung on the mantelpiece and the one on the left I am willing to swap. (he is approximately 2 inches long) So who wants to swap with me for something witchy for my witchhouse? Just let me know!

What am I working on

I thought I'de give you an update on what I'm currently working on.
When I got the miniature virus a few years ago, I started project after project because I really liked everything I saw. But most off them are now collecting dust standing unfinished in my workroom. But I used the last few weeks very well and organized everything. Made a (way too long;-) list of what I now like and still want to make, put all remaining U.F.O's away for later and selected two items to finish.

The first is a Christmas hatbox.
Our carpenter (we own a Multimate; DIY/construction store;-) made this wonderful box for me

and I allready collected and made some Christmas things

My brother helped me make a new pipe for the stove, that I have to paint now.
Still a lot to do, but it's not Christmas yet, so maybe I'll be able to finish something in time for once;-)

The second project is gonna take a lot longer and will be a witch house. Hugely inspired by several blogs with witchy things and houses, I decided that the greenhouse, I had for a while but didn't realy like, will do perfectly for that. I removed all the plants and table's that were in it and it will now become the house of Mandolyn Fairlady, a very nice witch who loves to help people with her homemade potions, ointments and tea's for which she grows all sorts of mysterious plants.

The fireplace (almost ready) was made by my brother whom I accidentally infected with the miniature virus. He is now making a tudor house from scratch for himself. If you're interested you can watch it overhere: Even though he does not have much free time, he likes to come over and help me with making miniatures every now and then.
