Hello and welcome, anybody who may come across this little blog of mine! I've just started this blog, and plan on focusing on miniatures, animals, and miniature animals. However, I'm also hoping it can be a fun place to talk about just about anything. We'll see.........

HOLY COW!!!!!!!!!! LOOK WHAT I GOT!!!!!!

For those of you who don't know who Kiva Atkinson is, and I kind of get the feeling that would, lol, her and I did a little swap. I was absolutely speechless when I opened Kiva's package today (well not completely speechless, but I'm not repeating what came out of my mouth, lol).
I can not get over how incredibly realistic her miniature food looks! I've always been in awe looking at the photos of them, and I seriously didn't think they could look much better in person but OMG they REALLY do!!!!! These pictures I took are just horrible, and don't do them justice. But unless you already own one of Kiva's miniatures, you're just going to have to take my word for it. This chick is an extremely gifted artist. She's also a sweetheart and a good friend! She made me way more than what I deserved. Thank you buddy!!!!!



I don't think they're hideous at all, I think they're adorable. I've even named them. Meet Seymour and Herman.

That's Seymour that I'm petting. :)

Half Inch Witch Mouse Finished-Now for the Kitty

Okay, here's the tiny witch mouse with fur. Which one do you like better-the before (fur) or after? I like the furry little guys but on the other hand, I do lose a lot of the little detail when I fur something this small.

Black cat & Teeny Tiny Witch Mouse in the Works

Here's a few work in progress pictures of a custom order - a black cat (scaredy cat) and witch mouse casting a spell upon him. I still have to fur them of course, and make the mouse a witch hat. I have no idea how I'm going to fur or make a hat for such a tiny mouse - yikes! The itty bitty magic wand was tough enough to do. He's measures just a tiny bit over 1/2 inch to the tip of his nose.

LOL, that's all! That's my post. I'm used to Ira (Merry Jingle Crafts) posting at least once a day and it's now been like a month. Anybody know if she's okay?

Drunk Skunk and how to make mini liquor bottles

I just finished this intoxicated little stinker. The only thing worse than working with black and white fur is trying to photograph it - sheesh! You can't even see his eyes in the pics. The last picture includes my own bottle of Cutty Sark Scotch, lol.

So I was all excited when I finally, and we are talking years here folks, found something in the house I could actually make into a glass bottle. I thought it was my own brilliant idea, but found out it's been done before. I wish I had known about it sooner. For those who don't already know a super easy way to make this little liquor bottle, well I'll tell you.
All it is is a small Christmas tree light bulb. The bottom is rounded so you can either use a glass cutter to cut the rounded end off, or you can just use coarse sand paper and sand it off so that you have a nice flat bottom (which is what I did). Then all you have to do is paint it the color you want with glass paint, find the labels online that you want and print them out at the right size, and then cut and glue the label(s) on the bottle. Now that I know how to do this, you can probably expect some more inebriated animals from me in the near future, LOL. :)
