Please bear with me.....

Pun intended, LOL! My bear-making muse seems to have taken a vacation. :o( I can't seem to muster up the inspiration to finish the two little bunnies I have waiting patiently on my desk. I will get to them again soon I hope, as soon as other things slow down. I have some things going on that I hope to be able to tell you all about soon, but it is a little bit uncertain and hush hush for now, not to mention super stressfull for me.

But anyway,...

While I wait for my muse to return I have been working on the dollhouse for my niece. It is the Lily kit. Over the past couple of months I have made some nice progress with it, but it is far from finished. I have been trying to make most things myself in order to save some money. Today I am going to start on the kitchen floor tiles. I'm not sure yet how I want to do this, but that is the fun part right?!
Here are a couple of pictures of my progress so far~

I have also been working on some more flowers. I am making some window boxes for the above house and also some flower arrangements, just because they are my favorite to make :o) Here is my little tray that I use to sit in front of the TV and work. I had stuff spread all over the house a couple of days ago, in the living room, family room, dining room... you get the idea :o) My husband came home from work and stood in kitchen with his jaw hanging open so I decided it was time to clean up, LOL! I wish I had gotten a picture of that!

Well, I am itching to get to work on the floor so I will post again soon. Maybe I will have some little bunnies to show by then! :o)
Have a wonderful day!!

Looking for miniature printables

All of you lovely miniaturists out there, I am in need of some help. I am looking for some little printables of all kinds, little gardening printies, labels for witchy stuff, food labels, etc., etc., etc.
Is there anyone out there who could point me in the right direction, or better yet is there anyone who would like to make a swap!? I love swaps!! I would be willing to trade some mini flowers and/ or mini stuffed animals (like my elephant and giraffe pictured in a previous post) or even a larger bear!
Please leave me a comment or send me an e-mail if you like :o)

Thanks so much!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday! Mine was great!
I just wanted to let you all know that due to some unavoidable circumstances I won't be able to attend the Chicagoland show in October, so I am offering for sale the bear, bunnies and lions that I had stashed back for that event. You can find these guys listed on my website for now and I will be listing them on Bear Pile over the next couple of weeks. Evangeline the lion is listed there now if you would like to take a look at her. I apologize for the poor quality of the pictures! As soon as my camera batteries charge I will take better ones and get them posted.

A Mouse and some Minis

Sorry it has been awhile since I last posted here on my blog! I have been a busy bee this week. I finally finished that little mouse I told you all about, her name is Devon. I will try and get her listed on Bear Pile here shortly.

I have also had my nose down in some mini projects :oP Once I get going it is hard to stop, LOL! I have included a picture here of what I got finished so far.
I refinished the cabinet and dresser to fit with my favorite shabby style.

I made the elephant and giraffe from vintage velvet. The elephant is a little over 1" tall and the giraffe is about 2.5". These will look cute in the little nursery room of the house I making for my niece.

I really love to make mini flowers!! This was my first attempt at making roses and I really love how they turned out. I think they go with my shabby furniture really well. I can't wait to make more in different colors. :o)

Also, I found some great fur in my stash to start on a couple of bunnies as requested :o) A light pink and a grey and white. I will get those patterns cut out tonight hopefully. Tomorrow I will be going to my mom's for the holiday. I hope everyone has a great 4th of July! Be safe!

Big Hugs,
