Done with Denver

This was a wonderful show! My first year in Denver turned out to be a success. I took an all day class with Debbie Young on Thursday to do a 1:48 scale attic. It was a wonderful class. I learned a lot about distressing and antiquing wood and furniture. I didn't quite get the attic fully finished, but will do so when I get back from Seattle sometime. Here are some photo's of the class.

New Cupcake Mold

Well much to my excitement I finally got some cupcake molds done! I've been meaning to get them done for a while and finally had to get myself in gear due to the demand for them at the NAME Convention a couple weeks ago. I've made the mold and put this kit together, to make it fun and easy for anyone to make cupcakes.

Wonky Cakes

I had an email from a customer asking where my wonky cakes were, feeling very bad to not have gotten them done sooner. I've had so much fun the last 2 days working on these cakes. They take almost a day per one and before I am done, thoughts are already creeping into my brain for the next one.

Working with Sculpey is so much fun. I find it much softer than Fimo and for my purposes it works better and doesn't kill my hands. My favorite tools are the pasta roller machine, an x-acto knife and a 90 degree angle pick. These are my best friends and are used with just about everything I do.

New heart cake platters

I just got in these really nice new platters in the mail today and was very excited to work them into a class I am teaching on cakes next June in Great Falls, MT. I came up with a small heart cake on a this platter. It's a 1:12 scale set and I put them on the web site for order. There are 3 colors so far, blue, pink and purple.

Thanks to Seattle

Well I just finished my 3rd Dollhouse Miniature show in Seattle this last weekend, and as always it was a wonderful show. I taught a class the day before on how to make cupcakes and the women in the class were a joy to teach and we had a great time.

Gone for a few days...

I am in AZ right now for a few days visiting my grandparents. The weather has been wonderful and I am enjoying every minute. We were able to make it to the Phoenix Art Museum and saw the most amazing displays of Thorne Miniature Room boxes. They were wonderful!

These rooms were conceived, designed and in large part created by Narcissa Niblack Thorne. An Indiana native, Thorne began to collect miniature furniture and household accessories during her travels to England and the Far East shortly after the turn of the 20th century.
