A Dollhouse Miniature Room Screen

Sunday, May 25th, 2014

I am totally empathizing with Brae’s latest post right now. Moving and getting a house ready to sell is practically a full time job (especially, for me, after living in the same place for almost 30 years.)

At any rate, somebody somewhere (I sure wish I remembered who and where) had a challenge to recreate a magazine picture in miniature. I thought I might do the one below, but alas, it didn’t work out.  Among other things, I couldn’t duplicate the fabric on that sofa.


So, I thought I would share the room screen I started to put together. What I had in mind was to print out the three sections on card stock or on paper and then glue to wood pieces. Simple hinges could be made from glued strips of fabric or even (not showing) duct tape. For the dedicated or the good of eye sight, there are mini hinges available.

Maybe you will have better luck with this project than I did. Enjoy! (Be sure to click the pictures to get the full size images.)

Dollhouse Miniature Tie Dyed T-Shirt Printable

Sunday, April 20th, 2014

So I think I mentioned a while back about my Spring Fling fail. The 1970′s head shop that wasn’t. One of my plans was to, of course, have some tie dyed t-shirts for sale. Here is a printable for personal use. The idea was/is to print this on a fabric sheet and sew or glue stitch the shirts together. But feel free to use your imagination! (Be sure to click the image to get a full size printable version.)

Gardening With Mini Furniture, Printables, and More

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

I’ve been gardening up a storm, lately, working up slowly to my edible landscape vision. I found these child size furniture pieces and thought they would add a bit of whimsy doubling as pot holders in my mini garden.


Of course, I had to have some “scare cats” for my small plot of corn.


I can’t wait to get this space terraced so that I can expand through out the entire yard!

How about another printable? Some so very seventies wallpaper. Be sure to click to save the full size image.

I’ve added my link on Jazzi’s Mini Link Party!

And, of course it’s Monday, so why not some Menu Plan Monday?

Sadly, my fridge is on the fritz, so we are literally eating out of the freezer (which, oddly enough, is working just fine.) On the menu will be:

Frozen Lasagna
Grillers/Fries/Onion Rings
Frozen Mac and Cheese
Frozen Lentil Soup
And, frankly, whatever else comes to mind until the fridge is repaired.

Have a great week!

P.S. This is a bit embarassing and I’m surprised no one called me on it. Apparently, my last post about avocado plants contained an error. I have have two chestnut trees in the making and one avocado. The chestnuts completely fooled me. The seeds are large and I thought they were avocados. Dern those squirrels!

Printables and Cat Wall Art

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

My piles of minis continue to grow smaller as I move more and more to the future house. What to do for this supposed minis blog? Printables!

One thing I have always loved about having a computer is having the ability to design my own printable/ activity pages, teaching aids, greeting cards, etc. These days I have fun with designing wallpapers, flooring, and wall art for my mini projects.

I already have some of my wallpapers available free. (See link in the sidebar.) So I decided to make a regular feature of a mini printable once a month (or maybe more often – we’ll see how it goes.)

This month I have some Cat Wall Art for you. There are four different color combinations on this page. (And, of course, you can always use your own favorite painting app to change colors.) Use this for your mini walls or print it on some fabric for a mini rug. Enjoy!
