I looked in vain for an appropriate miniature to photograph for this first blog of the year.....but I put my feet up, recharged batteries and caught up with my family over Christmas and New Year, so no 'work' to show at all! Nice break though!
I do hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to a New Year full of happiness and free from problems.
So.... no miniatures to picture....a very cold and soggy garden....so no pictures there either! At this time of year I can always cheer myself up with the conservatory and the plants that really don't care what's happening on the other side of the glass. The orchids are kicking the New Year off - SO welcome.
I have some lovely new commissions to inspire my dollmaking over the next few weeks, and a teeny weeny garden to create - then (far too soon for me) The Thame Dollshouse and Miniatures Fair is coming up very fast on 21st February. Lots of fantastic artisans - details and pictures on the website, thanks to Felicity and Ron who are fired up for another great fair.
About now I start to panic that we can produce enough new and interesting items.........BUT WE WILL!
In other news and wearing the Nostalgia in Miniature Workshops hat I share with my chum Celia Thomas of KT Miniatures (who has a whizzy new website) - we are finalizing details for our LITTLE VINTAGE TOYSHOP WORKSHOP in June, further details and the all important date will be live on the website in a couple of weeks, and preparing for another 'How To' feature for Dolls House and Miniature Scene Magazine later in the year. PHEW!
The Christmas decorations are back in the loft...so no more excuses. Thank you all for popping in last year, I hope you'll do so in 2015 as well.
Thank you for looking
