What I been working on...

Sorry everyone, it's not anything that I usually do and it's not any of the new ideas I have promised... but I've been ignoring blog land for too long now. I've been busy with these commissions (need to pay the bills :)) and I haven't had time for the kind of minis that I love to make. I had fun making these, but it's just not the same.

Anyway, here are some of the things I've been working on:

Some food charms for earrings. It was really fun to make food again. It is not my specialty (there are so many great mini food makers out there) but I think I did okay. These are all bigger than dollhouse scale. The lighting was kind of bad that day, these pictures do not do justice for that ham sandwich :).

One of my customers is really into the book To Kill A Mocking Bird and she asked that I make charms from some of the things in the book. She wanted to make them into bracelets and necklaces. For those of you familiar with the story, I also made the Ham costume as a charm (sorry don't have a picture of that one).
I've also been filling orders for items from Etsy and my Website (more of my kind of minis!). I made some great wands for Janice of On Being a Mini Mum.... but I was so anxious to get them to her that I forgot to take pictures. I'm sure you will see them on her blog when they arrive after she has time :). I also made more tombstones for an order and more skulls.
But the best of all has been finally making the Severus Snape wand for Ewa - The Old Maid from The Sunny Hours 1:12 Miniatures. If you remember she won the giveaway recently. I am dying to show pictures because I am so happy about how it turned out, but I don't want to ruin the surprise for her. As soon as she receives it and lets me know, I'll post the pictures.

I still have 3 more large orders to go but I'm starting to get caught up, 1 for more charms but 2 for magical and spooky minis. I'll have some great pictures to show soon, one of the orders is from a fellow blogger with some great ideas and a great eye!

Also, welcome new followers! I will check out your blogs as soon as I can breath again XD, and hopefully I can blog more soon. My laptop called it quits 3 weeks ago and I feel partially paralyzed. It will be a month or two before I can get another, so dragging my carcass to our slow and outdated desktop computer has and will continue to slow me down for a while. I am way behind in reading everyone else's blog too, I'm missing out on so much. Hopefully I'll be back to myself soon and can resume commenting on all your lovely blogs, don't forget about me! XD
