Food Props: A Caulk and Styrofoam Cake

I had an opportunity to work on a food prop for Chicago’s The Floating Opera Company’s production of The Quantum Mechanic–super fun! Time was of the essence, and I am totally indebted to this Fake ‘n’ Bake blog post for pointing me in the right direction in terms of supplies and methods. Here’s my shopping […]

So Much Tiny Ice Cream (and Other Minis)

Now that the weather’s changed, I’ve been on a serious summer kick. Want proof? Lose yourself in my Summer Foods Pinterest board. (Warning: Don’t look at this if you’re hungry!) To kick off summer, I’ve created brand new ice cream earrings and other summer foods, and I currently have one of each that’s ready to […]

Miniature Sushi…and a Spleen

The mice and I have been happily buried in mini food orders, and one was a particularly fun request for detailed sushi platters. On a totally different note, I had to do a project for my Chinese Five Element Theory class in massage school, and since we were given free rein to do anything we […]

Say Hello to the Under-Bed Friends

Welp, this is it! The dream room box headed off to Washington this afternoon, traveling back to the National Building Museum for the Small Stories exhibit. It was so hard to let it go, but I know it’ll love its new home! Before I packed it up, I couldn’t resist adding one more detail, a […]

If you’ll be in the Washington, D.C. area between May and January, be sure to check it out at the National Building Museum. All right, on to […]

A (Very) Colorful Miniature Room

It’s been a busy month here in the studio, and the mice and I have been dividing our time between filling orders, working on the mossy mouse house, and building a new commission for a museum in D.C., which we’re super excited about. The commission is for a room box with the theme “dream room,” […]

The Woodland Home Gets Mossy

I am obsessed with moss, so I was thrilled to learn that the Nutmegs are, too, and that they want their little woodland retreat to feature plenty of it. For the past week, the mice and I have been busy plastering the exterior and interior walls, adding a polished pebble foundation, and doing a little […]

New Project: It’s Mousey and Woodland-y

I’ve been working on the new Japanese foods tutorial book, and about a week ago, I hit a major wall. I was feeling┬áserious creative blockage, and I wasn’t enjoying my mini making for the first time in a long time. Mice to the rescue! I’ve decided to take a break on the Japanese food book […]

Mini Food Passport to Japan and Italy

Thanks to The Mouse Market making it on Buzzfeed earlier this week (thanks, Buzzfeed!), the mice and I were slammed with tiny food orders. Now that we’re caught up, it’s time to get back to work on the Japanese food book. But before I show you pics of that, here are some custom-ordered Italian dishes […]
