Camping With Foxes (Want to Come?)

I have a kid friend whose birthday is coming up, and I wanted to make them something special. They love foxes and miniatures, so what could be better than a tiny animal camping set? The nature scene is a piece of balsa with floral moss attached, and I wanted to incorporate items found on a […]

Miniaturizing the Feast Magazine Cover

On the drive back from a canoeing trip last weekend, my husband and I stopped at a BBQ joint, and right by the door was a stack of Feast Magazine with this crazy amazing, eye-popping photo on the cover. I immediately told my husband, “I TOTALLY need to miniaturize that!” So I did. Here’s the real […]

Here are the rolls, waiting to be yummified with texture and color. Even after hints of color have […]

The Nutmegs Make Miniature Caramel Apples

While poring over cookbooks, I learned that the Nutmegs had never eaten caramel apples (what?!), so I knew that was our first order of business. We decided to set up a little demo kitchen rather than cooking in […]

Polymer Clay Cakes for Dollhouses (and Ears)

Dollhouse Miniature Paper Plates in Bright Colors

The mice have been throwing a lot of summer parties, and they’ve been complaining about the dollhouse sink full of dirty dishes. I suggested that perhaps if they partied less there’d be less dishes, but they were having none of that. So, I decided to make them some paper plates (from recycled paper, of course). […]

Miniature Leftovers: Who Ate That??

Well, it looks like mice have gotten into my miniature kitchen, which isn’t that surprising around here. I left out a little plate of fried chicken last night, and I woke up to find this: Okay, full disclosure: This is a sculpting project that is part of a new eBook I’m working on. The book is […]
