We just need to figure out now whats giving the same sypmtoms as angina and heart problems.
It was lovely and funny to hear all your miniature potentials from your daily travels and the strange place we search out such treasures.
At times I have days of pondering and wondering. These are the days where I collect together a variety of items, group together and spend what seems like a life time deciding what to make and create.
Here are a few for today that I still need to poke around my craft room in search of the perfect accessories for.
First off I have this pocket watch casing. I’ve seen quite a few people fill these with wonderful sculptures and strange oddities.
In particular this is my favourite created byhttp://oddfae.blogspot.com/ I love this and isn't it clever? The lady also creates other such wonders. Check out her blog and etsy/ebay page.
I want to come up with my own unique idea and hopefully this will come to me at some point today.
Second, I found these wonderful deep picture frames while in hobbycraft earlier this week. They are perfect for making mini scenes and I’m thinking one will be for a mad scientist and the other for some sort of wizard/botanist or apothercary.http://cauldroncraftminiatures.blogspot.com/
Make sure you check out the magical creations also made by this talented lady. Everything is fab and full of whimsical twists. The lady has created the best posting i've seen in a long time with great links and ideas.
Before I go on with the third here is an update on the witches house. Not really much going on. I promise one day soon I will attack this and move several stages forward.
Here is the mad idea I had while ill a few weeks ago. I didn’t have the strength for much and one morning while almost better I decided it was time to start a mushroom house. As you can see it is just papier mache at the moment but I do have visions for it becoming a wonderful little house full of colour and lots of happy airy fairy fairies, and perhaps some little gnomes and hopping toads.
You have to think like a child at time!
Ok, back to the third. My lovely friend Susan http://tabithacorsica.blogspot.com/ sent this fab material to me as a surprise. It’s quite spooky that she thought to send this to me because it was what I was looking for. I think we must read each others thoughts. I find this keep happening all the time at the moment!
Thank you for sending Susan and I will make good use of everything.
My idea is to make a spooky table with spooky accessories for witches that love to dine and drink wine. I shall have to get some dirt out and tat up some but I think the idea will work.
This idea came to me while talking to another very talented lady that has plans to make these in full scale. Not being the sharpest tool in the box it took me a while to think i could do a minis version.
Also i bought some fab books fromhttp://www.petite-properties.com/
The books and site are 1:24 but could easily be scaled up. The ideas and tutorials in the book have been put together is an easy to follow way and the materials needed are cheap to source.
I could go on forever and a day but I’m sure I would bore you all to tears.
I need to get my skates on now and actually go and make something, or atleast finish everything i have been starting for the last few months.
