A complete roast beef dinner, complete with two plates (with green beans and mashed potatoes and gravy), two glasses of red wine, and tiny cutlery. All food and plates made from polymer clay. Roasting pan, glasses, and cutlery were purchased online. The red wine was made with resin.I figured out how to white balance my camera! :D It works beautifully with my new light box now. Plus now I have a photography corner set up in my craft room. Doesn’t sound too exciting, but it is for me!I wanted to add some foods to my Etsy shop, but I’ve been editing pictures and listing some more of Alex Meiklejohn’s pottery since 10 am. I still have to clean, do dishes, finish dinner, and clean fish tanks before the day is over. Where can I go to get more hours in a day? >.<Hopefully I’ll have the mini foods up tomorrow!

Just a Little Update

Hey guys!

I know I haven’t been doing much at all lately, but I have a pretty good excuse!

I’ve completely gutted and redecorated my craft room. Yes, I know this is the third time. lol Hopefully it’s the last. I’ve increased my workspace by more than double and finally managed to get storage for everything. I will have a blog post on it soon, including a craft room tour for those of you who are interested in those things. :)

Also, I would like to announce I’m working on gettingĀ  a proper website for myself, as well as launching a new aspect of my business. I will go into it later in detail once it’s all set up. It’s still miniature related though! :)

Big things are on their way. Hopefully they all come together sooner rather than later.

When I can&#8217;t fall asleep at night, I stay up until 2 am making little roast chicken necklaces. :)
So, if you&#8217;ve ever wanted a roast chicken pendant on a dainty hypoallergenic silver-tone chain, you&#8217;re in luck! I only have the one, though, so once it&#8217;s sold, I won&#8217;t make another until I can&#8217;t sleep again. lol
Available here.

Have some crappy cell phone quality husky pictures!
I don&#8217;t think I&#8217;ve shared pictures of my parents&#8217; huskies on here yet. Kona is the red one, Tundra is the white and grey one.
I miss having these guys around 24/7. :(

Some random food on ceramic plates: baked chicken, mashed potatoes, and salad; PB&amp;J with carrots and chips; fried chicken sandwich with fries; and grilled cheese with chips.
I wanted to try out my new mini light box so I just threw these in there to see how they&#8217;d come out. It&#8217;s not bad - I&#8217;m not limited to waiting until I have decent light to take pictures anymore. I need to set up something to bounce light back onto the items from the front. Shouldn&#8217;t be hard; I just need an index card or something.
The only issue I have is that I can&#8217;t fit any of the paper I was using for backgrounds into it. Looks like I&#8217;ll have to cut them up to fit now. Other than that, I like it! It also means I can finally take decent pictures for my PDF tutorials. :)

Chicago International Show

I got in to the Tom Bishop Chicago International 2015 show! :D

I emailed him last week inquiring about it (since everyone has told me that it is the show to get in to), and he told me it’s by invitation only and that he has to meet the dealer in person in order to invite them.

Well, I got lucky and somehow made it in! I do have to do a few more of his shows to get invited back again…and all of those shows are out of Florida. :( I know the international show is going to cost me an arm and a leg to get up there, so I don’t know if I will have the funds for other ones.

Right now I have tentative plans to sign up for the August Chicago show and one in Houston. Maybe I should have a sale to see if I can help fund the cost of the trip? It’d be less of an issue if I knew just how well I could do at these shows.

Who knows, maybe one day I will make it to his Madrid show. :)

So some of you may remember the Tiniest Breakfast I posted yesterday. Turns out, it was just a 1:12 piece on a giant penny!

I received a lot of comments thinking it was real and I felt bad. Then I saw a comment on here that they thought something this small couldn’t be possible. I decided to see if that, in fact, was true. Turns out it can be done!

I believe this would be 1:48 scale. The plate and food are all handmade from polymer clay. It took just under 45 minutes to finish, and no, it wasn’t any more difficult to do than my 1:12 miniatures. :)

The last picture is the 1:12 plate of breakfast and the giant penny I used yesterday.
