Christmas Day 2010

A very quiet celebration of the birth of Christ, our Lord, with my husband and our two dogs Spade and Sam.  I worked on this little tree ornament this week....hope you like her.

A pair of tine lady bugs without their spots.  I did these little girls for my cousin who is the grandmother of a pair of twin girls.  She loves lady bugs so once the bugs earned their spots off they went to Northern NY for their new home.  I hope they hibernate until spring as it will be a bit cold and snowy up there right now.....I know they will have a good "Lady bug, Lady bug fly away home......."

Brr-r-r-r- Baby it's cold outside

Santa is really ready for the big night.  All he needs are a few more presents in his sleigh and to get his reindeer hooked up to their harness.  He is truly jolly for it is his favorite time of the year.  He loves to go through his list, of coarse checking it twice to see who is naughty and nice, and check out the gifts to the young person it is going to.  The elves are busily finishing up the last minute toys and getting ready for a little sleep.  This has been an unusually busy year.

I so love creating memory trunks.  This was my second wedding trunk I created.  The first one was in a class in the Lakeland Miniature Show.  This was done for my online bridal showcase.  I loved creating this doll in her contemporary gown with a full lace bodice.  her memory trunk is full of little wedding notions like her grandmothers lace veil, picture of her mother and father on their wedding day, love letter from her fiance' as he was stationed overseas during his military career.  It also has a money purse, shoes, dried flowers, and other items that she has kept dear to her heart in her short lifetime. 

To the right is my Romeo and Juliet.  I loved creating these famous personalities for a museum that highlights miniature creations each year from MSATMINIDOLLS online group every year.  I feel honored to be a part of this project for the 2nd year in a row.  Hopefully I can continue my contributions to enhance the art of miniatures being showcased in this manner.

Life in Miniature

In the following pages you will be able to see my thoughts come to life in miniature.  I guess you would say I am a person of action.  I see something, either in my mind, in a picture, or in a dream, that I would love to have in real life but circumstances just do not allow it, so I create it in miniature.  I mostly create dolls in miniature but at certain times I have been known to create scenes, doll houses, room boxes, diaramma's, 3 dimensional pictures, and other little creations that tend to give me a small amount of self satisfaction for creating something that I would love to have in real life.
