29 November Advent Swaps

Hello dear readers,

Today I opened Advent swaps from 4 dear online friends, two from Finland, one from Ireland
and one from Italy.  It was very hard not to open the gifts before time but I did it!! I am very
happy with my gifts and will love to show you all.  There will be 3 more Sundays with gifts to
open from these same friends and WOW am I excited and curious to see what's inside the little

From Maria

A very cheery Christmas card and beautiful little miniatures, as well as a skull for the witch's home.
Thank you Dear Maria!

From Leena (No blog)

A lovely card showing, what I guess, part of her dolls collection.

A black nightgown and wrap together with a leather had, fit for a witch.  Baalatova will love them. Thank you dear Leena for these very thoughtful gifts.

From Kikka

A lovely postcard showing her fantastic Christmas shop box.

Very lovely potion jars for Baalatova
together with tiny ghost tags (or ghost decorations).  I love them all.
Dear Kikka, the chocolate bar was devoured before I got to "shoot" it.
Thank you!!

From Fabiola

Thank you Faby! They are so cute!!! I love them, they will cheer up poor Baalatova.

Takes a lot of will power to wait to open the next little parcels.

I hope you ladies won't be disappointed when you open mine.

Between crafting little miniatures, packing, posting, receiving gifts, teaching at the day center, taking care of my husband, etc. etc. I managed to finish the lower part of the camper's kitchen.  Hope you like it.

I used foam board and card board.  The counter is card board painted with acrylic granite paint.
The handles are glass beads.  The sink a plastic butter or jam container.  The oven a piece of
perspex painted black on one side, framed by a white rubber like (We call it sol) material.

Next I'll finish the upper part of the kitchen.

Have a wonderful Sunday!  Blessings

Furniture for the camping trailer

Hello dear readers,

Here, as promised, I'll show you what I managed to make for the trailer until now.

Dinning area.  Still have to make a table.

Sleeping area.  Lol  how I hate to make cushions.....

There is still the kitchen, shelves, curtains, etc... A lot of homework.  There will be
photos of all the trailers when we finish.  It will be interesting to see what the others
did and let me tell you, they are all very talented miniature artists.

Blessings my friends, take care and keep safe.

Praying for France

It's unbelievable atrocities like those which happened in France still exist.  My heart goes to the victims and their families. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Condolences to  the people of France and my French friends.

Workshop day with the local miniaturists.

Hello dear readers,

Last Sunday was another most enjoyable day spent with friends who share the same interests.
We had fun, we shared a lovely lunch, each of us bringing something to eat and the food was
delicious. We also brought a swap, a miniature to used in the project>
The project is a 1:12" camping trailer.

I cut this from 10 mm foam board. I want mine to camp on a beach.

Here are photos of what we managed to produce in one meeting.  There will be another meeting
in January, when we are supposed to finish the project.  Meanwhile each of us got a lot of homework to do.

Nothing is glued together yet.

The beginning of the dining and kitchen area. The sleeping or resting area will be on the right.

This swap that I got is from Sarit.  I'm really lucky to draw the best swaps.

This is my swap, fruits on a ceramic plate, all created by me.  Goldie got it and it
already sits on the table intended for her trailer.

Later on, as I go along, I hope  to show you more progress.

A very warm welcome to new followers, Poetry in Passing, Leena Keranen, Ram Z. Snape Malfoy and Alexandra Martinez.  Thank you for following.

Blessings to all
