|A Miniature Dessert table ready for the Christmas Holidays 1/12" scale|
|The 3 desserts on the front of this table were from a class I took at a NAME convention. It was taught by Carl Bronsdon.|
They are all Fimo and very delicate on very fragile glass plates.
|Another Trash to Treasure Log Cabin. This one was in the free bin. It was very dry looking and a roof was added and re nailed the logs here and there.|
|The front is about 12" and the back about 8" across and about 12" high. This is an estimate because its upstairs and I'm not.|
This book was found on a road trip to another state with my daughter. Sometimes a chain craft shop in another area has way different items than the one close to home. It was very exciting to find this book.
It is published by Design Originals No. 5431 and the author is Takashi Morito This is the website all in Japanese but you can right click and translate it. The pictures in the header are animals that are made and they are too cute. The book is all in English with detailed pictures and instructions for each animal. http://ameblo.jp/harinezumi-s/ I was really impressed with the selection of pipe cleaners available now. Have not been to that area of the store in a long time. Soft long furry pipe cleaners large size. They had variety packs of all colors and all thicknesses in each. I got a bunch in case they forget to order more and plan on creating some of these cuties at the New Year. All my Grand pups are represented in there and my Grandson would probably enjoy creating these as well. There are even some with little sweaters on. The chain store is Pat Catans, Michael's bought them out, so Michael's might have this book as well. Pat Catans is still in Ohio, Pennsylvania.
The new pipe cleaners could be used for very convincing fur on dolls clothing. They are long a fluffy, black, white, beige, gray and other colors. They just aren't short and stubby anymore.
There are sooo many projects on my work table at the moment. I work in stages on each one until finished, but have been photographing each step so they can be published as mini tutorials. A much needed organizing and cleaning in my work room is going on right now and in the process finding things to make How-to;s out of. Out of site-out of mind.
