where I ramble on about what's happening in my little world
and hopefully you have some enjoyment reading about it!


A little while ago, Ira from Merry Jingle put an idea in my head for some baby sleepyheads after she won Mr Sleepyhead on my blog give-away. Well, I had to have a go! that was two weeks ago and then disaster struck.... I spent a day making various body parts and baby pun-kins , shoved them in the oven and went off doing whatever it is airheads like me do. An hour later I returned and nearly sobbed as I'd burnt the lot!!! (no suprise really!) so I made more..... and then I couldnt work out how to get all the babies on a vine and still be able to reposition them.... and then real life kept pulling me off to do other things and then....
the procrastination ended and I made this....

I hope you like it Ira, it was just going to be a gift to keep Sleepyhead company, now its a special thankyou gift too :o) The candles should glow in the dark (they are only trainee illuminators at the moment until they grow off the vine) although I have no idea how I'm gonna get a picture of them glowing in the dark?? I tried & failed :o(
am now off to the post office .... they dont like to be out of the ground too long you know!

Big Thankyou's :o)

I have been a bad, bad blogger AGAIN!!! (that seems to be how I begin all my blog posts recently LOL)
I almost cannot believe it has been 3 weeks since I last popped in here to ramble.... are you ready for a marathon waffling? ....good!
Firstly, I have a HUoooGE thankyou to give out to a few special bloggers :o) I had been very lucky recently and won a couple of giveaways, and then I also received some wonderful gifts from two very generous blogging friends. This is my new stash of pressies...it was like xmas opening all the little packages!!!! :o)

the first to arrive were the blog giveaway prizes from Nina /Dangerous Mezzo over at The Tudor Medieval Jacobean Queen Anne Dollhouse Project who sent me the tudor sugar cone, fruitbowl, barrel, maps and beautiful book and from from Kate of Katies Clay Corner who sent me the most perfect mini-mail .

then I had the wonderful suprise of 2 more packages!! Ira / Merry Jingle who won Mr Sleepyhead on my blog giveaway decided to send me a thankyou, and then Debbie of Tiny Treasures also sent me a fantastic parcel too!!! I am genuinely overwhelmed by your generosity

look at all these delightful goodies Ira sent!!! I absolutely adore the candle snuffer and the wands are so detailed and perfect :o) you have to click on the pic to make it bigger to see how great all of these miniatures are! and then... as if I hadnt had enough goodies, I had even more from Debbie! this photo really doesnt do the bottles justice! the light catches the tops and they shimmer and almost glow! I shall thoroughly enjoy playing with the marbles too and make more potion bottles for my Skool of Majick's potion room (I'm assuming they are spares for future projects and not just that Debbie felt I had lost all of my marbles !!! hahaha)

So, apart from opening goodie boxes, what have I been up to you may be wondering? well...... the sun has been shining in all its splendour so I have been mainly in my garden planting or nurturing 'stuff' (or rescueing 'stuff' when my dog decides to dig/trample and destroy my hard work) or just chilling outside with a good book! I have also spent a LOT of time down the golf course! I love the game and since my health has started improving, I have found that it is just the thing to keep me fit & well :o) its just a shame my golf isnt improving very much, but I havnt injured anyone with wayward balls....yet! I have also been working on a few commissions, which I shall show you when I'm done. I haven't had 3 dolls on the go at the same time for ....? well, ever! so its interesting here to say the least. I just need to make sure I get all the heads , hands & feet on the right bodies as Frankensteins head may look a little out of place on a gypsy fortune teller!!!

I have also acquired a few more followers
PuNo's Minis 1:12
'Minikitchen' - who I cant find a blog for :o(
#Edit - MinnieKitchen bloglink thanx Debbie for the info
& WitchyWonders ..... who after reading her blog, to confirm she is who I thought she was, and having read much about this matter elsewhere from people who's work has been copied, I would just like to say that you are welcome to follow me if you are genuinely interested in my ramblings but would like to state here & now for the record that if I see ANY of my work copied by you and claimed as your own ideas, then I shall not be pleasant.
Plagarism is just not nice. Please play fair!
I am not an unpleasant person and wish everyone well, but if you are into mini-making for profit, then please at least do the decent thing and ask the original artist and credit those who you have taken your ideas from - It is they after all that are the original artist, not you. Credit where its due :o)
Sorry but it had to be said.
Back to the grindstone.... I love it really :o) I shall continue to pop in when I can and attempt to keep up to date with everyones blogs, but even though today is the summer solstice, it still doesnt extend the day long enough to keep up with all that Id like to, oh for more hours in the day!
