HOLA! Hope everyone is doing GREAT! I know I am, I mean this is going to be a 3 day weekend, which means more mini time for me. Woohoo! So with all the cakes I've been making, I figured I should make a prep board to go with them, so here it is! Enjoy!

For those of you that don't know, I am of Cuban decent and my grandmother still lives in Cuba. On my last trip there, I brought back some Cuban cigars, just to have, as I am not a smoker. They have been on my shelf for years now, and thought I would never have a use for them. Well boy was I wrong! How many of you have purchased those mini boxes of cigars to put in your dolls house study. I know I have and though they are very nice, they are just to plastic looking for me, so I decided to make my own. I took my REAL Cuban cigar and placed it in a plastic baggy with water so it would moisten the leaves and I would be able to unroll it. Once I did that, I carefully cut the leaves to a "mini" size, took a pinch of the tobacco and rolled a mini cuban cigar. I then added a bit of glue to the leaf, to keep it from unrolling. Here is the final product. ENJOY!

So I've been unpacking my minis from boxes and organizing my organizing my mini closet and came across a favorite of mine which I made some time ago and I thought I'd share it with you all. Mini Hugs!

Snack Time

There's nothing I love more then a simple piece of bread and CHEESE. Sometimes all that rich food just doesn't sound good. Or even a plain old tomatoe and mayo sandwhich. Anyways the other day, while I was in the kitchen fixing myself a cheese sandwich, I looked at the cutting board and decided it would look great in miniature, so here you have it! I added the jar of pickled onions just for show. LOL
