Working in miniature has been something I've done for a long while.
I may not always make the time to blog, take pictures, or even record videos about my adventures, however I always want to share them.
Over the past two years I've spent more time working in 1:6, 1:4 and 1:3 scale specifically creating dioramas and props for my Ball jointed doll collection.
I still work in 1:12 scale:-)
.... I sometimes post on flickr and Instagram, but keeping up with all the social media platforms can get tedious at times (for me). So this week I decided to come back to my old favourite. so here I am, once again on blogger.
Here's a little bit of what I've been up to
Below is a picture of a 1:6 scale cottage I scratch built, using wood, foam board, PVC board and various other bits and pieces.
Below is an Ikea inspired shelving unit in 1:12 scale I also built
Below are 1:4 scale props I made (except the colouring pencils!)
Till next time :-) x

I always enjoy looking at my miniatures:-) and I'm always on the look out for great display options for my minis. So having stuff I've made hidden in boxes isn't something I'm fond of :-)
A couple of weeks ago I took one look at my crafting area and all the stored minis, and decided I needed to display all the miniature craft items I'd made, especially replicas of my favourite paper packs, cardstock, stamps, stencils, pens, markers, colouring media etc; at least somewhere I could enjoy looking at them.
(I had even made rolls of double sided tape ;-))
So I decided to make a craft room scene that would sit on a corner of my desk. I wanted to duplicate my work area but that got a bit hard trying to replicate my storage units, so I decided to make Ikea inspired shelving that looked similar instead but still retaining the crafty atmosphere :-) of my space.
Almost everything has been handmade by me :-)

My local craft store had unfinished wooden bead craft organizers, so I bought a couple and painted them to use as shelves.
