Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your ear.......... Ah yes, the wonderful Christmas season is almost upon us and it's no secret that it's my FAVORITE holiday of all! As most of you know I am only 4 weeks away from the arrival of my baby girl Samantha so I will definetly not have time to make any Christmas minis in December, but if you really know me you KNOW I could not let Christmas come and go without making some Christmas mini pieces, so I decided to start my 2011 Christmas collection early this year. Here are a few pictures of a quick and easy roombox I put together to use as a prop scene and below are just a few of the pieces I have started working on and added them to my online store. I will be adding more pieces as the weeks go on so make sure to check my store regularly. Enjoy the eye candy and thanks for looking!

Happy Holidays From My House To Yours!

As some of you may have already heard, I had quite a scare this past Tuesday! I went to my routine doctors appointment to check up on baby Samantha when all of a sudden the nurse rushes in my room and asks me if I'm having any pains, in which I answered "No". Apparently the monitor I was hooked up to picked up on some VERY strong contractions. Considering I am not due for another 5 weeks, this was NOT good news, so the doc put me on some meds to control the contractions, pulled me from work and has me on strict bed rest! For those of you that know what a active person I am due to my mild case of OCD (lol), bed rest is like a prison sentence!!! But gotta follow doctors orders to assure baby Samantha doesn't arrive until she's ready to :) On the bright side, this bed rest will give me plenty of time to make some new minis. I plan on starting on a Christmas collection but before that I decided to whip out one more Halloween piece. Here's a Blood Dripped Candelabra that would go beautifully in a Castle, Witches House or any other creative scene you could come up with. As always this piece as well as the rest of my mini collection can be found in my Etsy store! Thanks for looking everyone!

With Halloween only a few days away I rushed last night to get in some last minute miniature pieces to add to my collection and I ended up making a feast fit for a gruesome being like an Ogre perhaps! Tonights menu consists of "Human Stew" as the main course and your choice of "Sweet Sugar Bones" or "Eye POPPING Pie" for dessert! LOL Enjoy!

I can't believe it's almost Halloween already! Where has the time gone? It seems like just yesterday I had so many plans to make a whole LOT of Halloween mini pieces and now I find myself with only 10 days till Halloween! Well luckily I was able to squeeze in a few Halloween themed pieces last night and if I'm lucky I'll make some more this weekend. Until then here is some eye candy for you all to look at :)

There is nothing like a glass of ice cold Strawberry Lemonade to quench your thirst on a hot summer day! Especially when it has pieces of real fruit in it!! Yummy! Here is a prep board with all the ingredients needed. I am quite found of this piece. I think that the "REAL GLASS" pitcher and glasses add an extra realism to it. Enjoy!

I'm sure all of you remember the Homemade Bread that I made this past Monday right? Well I decided to make some sandwiches using that bread but realized I was missing a few ingredients so I left everything where it was a went to the store. Upon returning I was shocked to find this!!!!!

The rats were feasting on my bread! Haha........ I was in a goofy mood last night and since I had some rats I had just created the night before I thought incorporating them in a scene would be great. These little critters are are covered with 100% silk doll hair. Hope you enjoyed my little story!
