  1. Parcels

    From the album Creatin' Contest 2019

    I used some packaging kits from Looking Glass Miniatures for parts and will get to what I did with the boxes portion in a later post. For parcels, I wrapped wood blocks in the kit's kraft paper and twine, using old labels found online. Obviously, parcel post labels are harder to find than old letters and postcards as the wrapping would usually have been discarded.

  2. Desk and chair

    From the album Creatin' Contest 2019

    Our rural post office has good cabinets and a postal teller in newish condition, but the desk and chair are hand me down pieces. They are still perfectly usable, after all. The Chrysnbon Victorian chair kit was a gift. The desk is adapted from a table pattern in the book Finishing Touches by Jane Harrop. I beat it up with every tool on my work table. Look at that delightfully ratty finish!

    Nice!   Care to make a friendly wager on a game or two?
  10. Latest update with tree

    From the album Creatin' Contest 2019

    Making another tree this year.  I like how the tall tree forces the perspective. Jebediah looks more in scale with the tree in place.

  11. Galloway House - great mini inspiration

    I'm not sure of the reference you mean. This house is an historic property in Wisconsin.
  12. Mini show in Elk Grove, IL

    Yep! I always use that as my comparison.

  14. Sabu the Prognosticator

    From the album Misc minis

    Behold Sabu the Prognosticator. I have no idea why I needed a clairvoyant reptile in a wizard's hat, but I'm guessing he knows. I'm pretty sure he needs an amulet, perhaps some stars on his hat. And, a silk bed. by Debbie Rundle - found at the Wee "c" Miniature Show

  15. Ladybugs!!

    From the album Misc minis

    It pays to dig in the bins and have good magnifying glasses on! Probably not really to scale, but too cute! from Debbie Rundle - found at the Wee "c" Miniature Show
