New Year's Giveaway and new Contest Kit

I just want to send a reminder for the New Year's Giveaway from my last post. Don't forget to leave a comment to participate! You can do so until the end of the day. In addition to that, I want to share an update on the new HBS 2018 Creatin' Contest Kit - yes, already a new one!

As per tradition, Fran Casselman decorated the new kit for the contest to give us some inspiration and we get to see the basic kit that we can work on, in order to participate to the contest. I was actually hoping for something more modern this year and was thinking of applying the tattoo shop idea to it, nevertheless, I feel like I will have to come up with another idea for this specific kit and work on the tattoo shop separately - not decided yet! And here it is, the great work of Fran and the basic kit:




I really don't know what direction to go with this, but this seems to be the same dilemma each year. I like the shape though, I think I won't change it much...

Good luck everybody with the new contest, the giveaway and have a great start into 2018! Happy Saturday!

Hugs,
Susi

Before the year ends…

So many things happening just before the end of the year. When I look back at all the good and bad things that happened in 2017 - didn't we just start 2017? - I can't believe how fast the year has passed. I really hope that 2018 will have more heart warming news from around the world than 2017.

But as we are not quite in 2018 yet, I thought I will try to spread some happiness before the year ends. More on this in a bit. First, I want to share that I just learned that my 2016 Creatin Contest Kit (which I could not submit on time) was going to be featured in the 2018 January-February Issue of the Dollhouse Miniatures Magazine. I will share the article once the Magazine is published, until then, here are some teasers:



On the other side, I decided to work on a tattoo shop project and gave it a start by creating a tattoo gun out of polymer clay, some wire, and some little aluminum pieces. I hope you like it...


I do not know yet how big the shop is going to be and what I will include, I just want it to be as detailed as possible. So in the upcoming weeks, I will be working on little accessories and furnitures, and I will try to share my progress with you if I find some extra time.

Ok, enough talk, regarding the happiness I want to share… I recently organized all my boxes that hold my miniatures and all my tools. I noticed that some items are simply sitting there and I don't find a use for them or I simply have some more copies of them. Why not giving them away and they finally get a real use? So here are the items included in my…

"New Year Give Away"

A colorful rug

Some cotton fabric, a tray, 4 glasses/vases, 1 blue pitcher, 1 bag, 3 bowls, 1 dog bowl,  and some ribbons.

Different kinds of textures.

If you would like to participate to the give away, simply leave a comment and I'll add your name to the list. I will use a random number generator to designate the winner. You can participate until end of day on the 6th January (CET) and I will announce the winner on the 7th.

Have a wonderful Christmas with family and friends!

Hugs,
Susi
