Mini Mania

Well, Hello, Internet!!

I've been busy working on Christmas gifts, random candy box forests and my contest project for the Hobby Builder's Supply Creatin' Contest(I think that's the name of it). I love the HBS contest, the entries are simply amazing! What a great source of inspiration! The ideas people come up with from one similar kit are just mind-boggling.

I am thankful that miniaturists are so generous with their techniques and ideas. What a great bunch of people! I've been learning so much lately. The cactus pic above is my version of the great project idea found here. Thanks, Casey!

The candy box forests are an idea that came to me while I was trying to figure out what to do with these two cute little boxes that I bought a while back. They have inspirational quotes and cute paper inside. I brought a few branches in from the yard and cut them to fit like little trees. Then, I glued some green and dark green foliage to the "branches" and added a little bird to each. They're really cute! So cute, I had to try it on every little box I could get my hands on! Pics to come! I'm supposed to be cleaning right now. ;-)

I promise not to be such a lousy mini-blogger. Chores first, then fun! I'll be back!

Have a Mini Day!
