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 […]

Download This Solar System Poster – Miniature Freebie

As promised in my last post, I’m giving away the solar system poster I designed for my miniature dream room. You are free to use this poster in your personal projects, and you can also incorporate it into projects intended for sale, but please do not sell the poster on its own, nor give it […]

The Miniature Dream Room Gets Dreamy

Ohboyohboyohboy…the dream room is finished! Ready for a tiny tour? First, though, here are more details about the museum exhibit, which the room will be a part of. 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 serious 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 […]

Om Donuts for Yogis

To counteract the rather Gollum-like posture I slip into while I’m sculpting tiny food, I love to do yoga a few times a week. So, in honor of my practice I’ve melded two of life’s most awesome experiences: yogic bliss and donuts. This mini food charm is the perfect accessory for yogis who don’t take themselves too seriously […]

Mouse Finds a House

My mom found an old book in a second-hand shop, and she knew immediately that it was right up my alley. I’m sure you can see why. 😉 The book contains a few little stories, and the first is about Mouse hunting for a new house, which reminded me a lot of the Nutmegs’ adventure. Well, […]

I Heart Donuts

Love is in the air! Well, actually I just got the new issue of Martha Stewart Living in the mail, and it’s all pink and hearts, so I’m totally in the mood for Valentine’s Day now. To kick things off, I’ve made two new styles of heart-shaped donut earrings, and I’ve been wanting to make […]
