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!

Almost Christmas! My Creatin' Contest 2017 Entry

It's that time of the year again where we get ready for new year's resolutions. From what I experienced in the last year, it's now official that:
- I do work too much
- I need more time for miniatures
- I need to catch up with blogs

So in 2018, I'll work towards that. Nevertheless, using every single free moment since May - with lots of patience from my husband's side - I was able to finish my latest miniature project and could send in the Creatin' Contest entry pictures on time! Woot woot!

I can't wait to see all the stunning projects that people have sent in. Here are some pictures from my entry: "A Writer's Retreat"...

In this living room lives a writer, who loves to write thrillers. She has decorated her house influenced by Moroccan architecture. She loves reading and has a wast collection of books. She spends hours getting lost in a new exciting story with a glass of red wine. Unfortunately she smokes also a lot, but at least there are big windows. (Ilona, your gorgeous Magnolias gave this scene the perfect touch, thanks!)

Wishing good luck to all entrants and have a great weekend!
