Ok, so the goal is to make needlefelted dollhouse Mini's, but I couldn't resist making a snowman. He could actually be a great decoration for a dollhouse winter scene, because he's only 3 1/4 inches tall...but I can't part with him. He's my first 3 dimensional figurine, so he gets to live with me. But before long.....

Well the team is officially up and running, and I am the blog-maker!!
TeamMIDS is a team of artists dedicated to making scale miniatures for dollhouses in 1:12 scale or smaller. If you want to see small sometime, check out a 1:144 dollhouse within a dollhouse. Amazing.

In the last few months, I've been learning all kinds of new things. So my blog needs a new look to go along with all my new projects, don't you think?
First of all, I'm learning a new craft, which I LOVE!! If you've never been exposed to needlefelting, you can learn right along with me; it's a fascinating thing where you take these seriously sharp needles (and trust me, my fingers can attest to that!) and some loose wool, and sculpt it into...well, whatever your imagination can come up with! Three dimensional figurines are really popular, Art Dolls, animals, fantasy figurines, and that's just the beginning.
At the beginning, before I could get my hands on wool, I went out and bought wool yarn, and tore it down to it's basic fibre structure...LOL...lots of work, there, and it slowed me down some!
But anyway, here's a picture of my first efforts, which were just little Christmas Tree Ornaments, but I like them anyway:

Ok, I realize I'm turning this blog into more of a Mini Showcase than anything, but I just can't help it. There are too many amazing artists that I'm being exposed to...
So today, it's all about the Unicorn! Golden Unicorn Mini's (or as we just call her, GUM) does the most amazing florals:
And this you GOTTA see!
This tiny little potting station, because after all, if you're going to do florals, you really NEED a place to keep your supplies, don't you think??
These little works of art are 1:12 scale, which in laymans term means one inch in a dollhouse equals one foot in real life. Talent?
Ya' think? For more of her work, check out her website!
