I am slowly learning how to make miniatures. Today I made a house plant with one of the candle holders I bought yesterday at a thrift store. I am so happy how it turned out. The "dirt" in the flower pot is actually tea and coffee grounds. I learned that little trick from Joanne's Minis blog. I also made a picture frame using her technique as well. I think for the first time making one it came out really well. I also started making a rocking chair from a model that I have here. But I made the back a little small and so it looks like the foot board for a single bed. So I guess that is what I will make out of it. I also made my first cake. It didn't turn out like the ones I have seen on other websites but it was my first attempt and so I am ok with it. I actually made it out of part of a cork from a bottle of wine and painted it with fabric paint. It is really think paint and works well. So that is what I was busy doing today. The second picture is the flower box on the front of my doll house. I think it came out pretty good.
