Hello! - ¡Hola!

Hello all dear blogging friends. I just wanted to let you know that I won't be updating my blog for the time being. I just don't have the time and energy for it right now. Instead, I will keep sharing pictures on Instragram, I have my page on Facebook and you can also follow me on Twitter or Pinterest. I look forward to meeting you in some of these medias!

Miniature Christmas wreaths - Coronas de navidad

I have made a new Christmas tree for Erlenhof from pipe cleaners. It is still unfinished, as I have been making the decorations. I hope to have it finished soon so that I can show it to you. But as I have got plenty of pipe pleaners left, I made some Christmas wreaths, too.

Animal print bags - Bolsos estampados de animales

I got the newest issue of Nukkekoti (Dolls house) magazine, published by the Finnish Doll's House Association, a couple of days ago. In it I found some nice bag tutorials by Maria Malmström. Here are two versions which I made with the help of her patterns. Maria is a truly wonderful miniature artist and she is very generous with sharing her excellent instructions. If you aren't familiar with her work yet, please do visit her blog.

A couple of weeks ago my friend Irmeli and I visited the yearly Doll and Bear Fair which was organized by another association, the Finnish Doll Association. Unfortunately I do not remember the name of the artist who has made these dolls, but I found all these figures so charming.

Miniature pastries - Pasteles en miniatura

It's been a while since I have posted! At the end of the summer I bought some new supplies, for instance Deluxe Materials Scenic Water and Scenic Colours, but I have not tried them yet, because, to tell you the truth, I forgot about them soon after I had bought them! And then, the other day as I was going through the disorganized mess of things on my craft table, I came across these two packages and I was "Oops! What do I have here!?" Well, I think that many crafters have a lot of supplies they are not aware of, don't they?

  Anyway, I have been doing some miniature baking.  Here are some cakes, pastries and sandwiches. They are all made from air dry silk clay. As I have mentioned before, I love working with this soft air dry clay. It is very good for making miniature food.
