  1. Doll made in a Dana Burton class, Kansas City show, 2016

    Thank you, genieDOLL! :)
  2. What's everyone working on?

    Oh my. That is a rough vacation! Glad everyone ended up okay though. Mom and I are headed to Nebraska State Day this weekend, so I've been working on my swap items. It's an attic theme this year so I decided to go for something that wouldn't really fit in other projects. I made elephant foot umbrella stands and walking sticks. They were a little more work than I first thought they'd be (somehow my swap items always end up that way!  ) but I like how they turned out, especially the later ones. My 5-year-old is begging for one of her own. Tomorrow I'm headed to the Kansas State Fair to demonstrate miniatures for 5 hours. I'm taking supplies to make wind chimes, petunias, and also enough wood to figure out how to miniaturise my mother-in-law's awesome barnwood shelves in both 1:12 and 1:48 scales. I'll also have handouts of little books they can make in 1:12 & 1:48 scales and my 1:576 house with instructions. Hopefully there will be some interest.

    These elephant foot umbrella stands and walking sticks are my items for the 2017 Nebraska State Day swap. The elephant feet are individually formed from paperclay and the walking sticks are painted fancy toothpicks topped with beads.

    Thank you both! :)

    Thank you, Samantha! The paper is scrapbook paper and the organ is a Bespaq set I picked up on a whim at a miniature shop in Duluth, Minnesota.

    Thank you both! Pgwyn, I printed off a leaded glass window design from the internet, then taped the plexi over it and used lead tape to trace the lines. The lead tape I used is intended to add weight to tennis rackets, and is rather wide. I cut it into 4 skinnier strips before laying it down. After getting everything else done, I glued the windows in and used Triple Thick on both sides to make the windows look like wavy antique glass. This is the tutorial I followed: http://glorioustwelfth.blogspot.jp/2011/03/how-to-make-dollhouse-miniature-lead.html

    I dressed and wigged this doll in Dana Burton's class at the Kansas City Dollhouse and Miniature Show in 2017.

    Oh, that collection was so fun to see!

    I've enjoyed putting together Dana Burton's kits. She does limited runs and they're generally $65 + $5 shipping for the doll, wigging, and everything needed to dress her. She has great tutorials and does classes at shows, although she's taking next year off from teaching to work on a book. Her website is http://www.miniatureart.com/ and there are links to her Facebook pages, YouTube channel, and more.
  14. What's everyone working on?

    I've been cramming to finish up some items that I'm displaying at one of the local libraries. Today was the deadline and it's finally all in! I was worried I wouldn't have enough to fill the case but the display was smaller than I remembered and there was one item I couldn't squeeze in. Pictures here. Next deadline is the state fair. I have a roombox and a doll to finish for that. Then I'm teaching the project at the next club meeting and have to prep that. Then I need to be ready with enough miniatures to demonstrate for 5 hours at the fair. After the demo, we leave for Nebraska State Day where I need to have 21 swap items! Why does everything hit at once?!
