My way of saying thanks

I mentioned last week I was working on a giveaway... What do you think?
The list goes like this:
3 notebooks, basket with handles, potted plant with flowers and because I have to add a little dark to my minis I added a potion from one of my favorite schools. It was all made/put together by me.  The books in the basket are not glued down so you can move them around and place them wherever you want and the basket is made from weaved paper.

Ok now for the rules...
  • This giveaway is open to my current 62 followers.
  • You must have a blog be one of the current 62 followers. (Edited to include any of the 62 followers because I said so above) 8-)
  • To enter please let me know in this post.
  • I'll draw the winners name on Wednesday and hope to mail out the package this weekend.
Good luck everyone and thanks for following me!

Conservatory Part 2

Still working on the conservatory and making headway. Woohoo
I had this bucket of stones that measure about 1/4 inch x 1/4 inch and well since they were just sitting there collecting dust on the shelf I decided to use them. And boy did I, just shy of the whole bucket. I think I have about 20 left. lol  I also made another vine like the one I put in the lantern but much larger. It will take up the back corner of the conservatory and then work its way up and over the beams. If you click on the photo you can see the little orange flowers I made. Right now they are not attached, I didn't want to glue them in place yet so I can still move the vine around.  The front corner will house some of the mushrooms I made and the other long wall will have the veggies I made and other plants. Its still a work in progress but its getting there.  I hope you have a great long weekend!

Mother's Day gift to my mom

This is my mom’s mini getaway that I made for her for Mother’s Day. I really like this lantern and it was a lot of fun to create this mini scene. 

As always I wanted to try something new and I thought it needed a flowering vine that was growing up the side. Remember my last post where I showed you that flower soft stuff? This is what you can do with it, of course I could have used purple or some other color but you all should know me by now and that orange would be in there somewhere! I did add little yellow, peach and purple flowers in the bottom corners in and around the ferns.  The lounge chair is an ornament I have been holding onto for a while and was just the right size. I added the red blanket from my fabric drawer and made the book too.

I hope you like it and if you have any questions about the scene please give me a shout either in the comments or via email. **Also to view the image larger please click on it.  Have a great week everyone and thanks for following me on my mini adventures!

Books, crochet, and little orange fuzz

I needed more books for the witches sitting room but since I was on a roll I just kept making more. As you can see look like they have been used quite a bit, maybe even more like journals that have been opened and closed many times with the edges all curling up. They are going to be part of something I am trying to finish up this week and hopefully you all will like it.

Also I just can't stop crocheting, its actually quite fun and of course for me I need to keep doing it to get better and to teach myself to make the loops consistant. So far I have small doilies and the large tan square  and the black round one which I may just unravel and then redo into a square as well. I think either square or rectangle shapes will suit my needs and well maybe these will go with the books. haha

I also got a couple containers of this stuff in the bottom right corner of the photos its called Flower Soft and comes in many colors. Some are just one color and other containers vary like this one in orange/yellow/black. I love this stuff! I guess it was originally made to be used for scrapbookers making cards and stuff but my mini mind went Oohhh this will work for flowers.  I used it in a mini scene I made for my mom which I gave her yesterday for mudders day. Yes I did take photos and I will post them this week, I just didn't want to post them before she got it because my mom reads my blog.  Ok gotta run for now but to all you moms out there Happy Mother's Day to you.
