I hope everyone is having a great holiday!!
Woo hoo!! Made a sale today!! Woo hoo!!

I've been really working hard on trying out new things to put in my Etsy Shop. I've been focusing on needlefelting, and I think I'm going to have some things pretty soon that are sale-worthy. But in the meantime, I'm also trying out other things. This is the latest addition to my shop:

Another Needlefelted Project

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.

The leaves are finally getting around to turning here in the mountains, and it's so beautiful I've been having a hard time staying inside long enough to get anything done. I went for a drive a few days ago, and this is just a little sample of what I'm surrounded by.

My Blog Gets a Facelift!

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:

More Awesome Mini's!

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!
