Dear Miniature Enthusiast,
My goodness, but itís been quite awhile since weíve had the opportunity to get together! Itís time to sweep up the dust from our reconstruction and welcome our extended family back to the Gazette. Weíve missed you!!
So much in fact, we have a great coupon at the bottom of this email... it's our way of saying thanks for your understanding!
A lot has happened since the last time we got together, including the final results of Spring Fling 2011 and a remodeling of our forum. Itís just been a very exciting year but whatís most exciting of all is having a brand new year right around the corner. We have some new things in store for the Gazette including an advice column, more interviews with contemporary Mini Masters, articles with real life architecture that will inspire you, and of course, lots of helpful how-to articles about building dollhouses and making miniatures to go inside them. Youíll still see our regular features such as the Member of the Month, the Collectorís Cabinet, and lots of eye candy. Weíll also be moving to a new delivery schedule so youíll see the Gazette in your inbox every other month, totaling six issues per year.
All of that begins in January so weíre going to take advantage of this end of the year special edition to wrap up 2011 and talk a little bit about what to expect in 2012. By popular demand, Iím including a rewind of our favorite Dollhouse Christmas Carols and hope youíll all join in the sing-along. Oh, and it wouldnít be the Gazette if we didnít share a tutorial with you so weíve included a killer article showing you how to change those craft store wooden flower pots into faux terra cotta and fill them with houseplants that donít break your budget. Itís a fun little project you can do while youíre waiting for your holiday dinner to cook.
Most of all, weíve come to your inbox to wish each and every one of you the happiest of holidays, the merriest of Christmases, and the very best new year!
Editor in Chief
