About

2 Stinkin' Cute Miniatures

2 Stinkin’ Cute Miniatures came to life a couple of years ago. Here's our story...

Kerry is a designer. She always had the knack of making things look pretty. She can design a room, create stunning floral arrangements, pick out the perfect paint color or piece of furniture. Oh, and Kerry is an excellent baker too!

I (Laurie) have come to love DIY. For some reason, I am not afraid of power tools, saw dust or getting dirty working in the garbage. It’s my happy place. It's not in my makeup to think I can't do something. My motto is “if I can think it, I can do it”. No fear.

Throughout the years, we have tackled many projects together. One of our biggest and most favorite project was building a dollhouse of our daughters. But not just a little dollhouse…. its a nine room, three story Barbie dollhouse. It’s basically your average hobbit size house. It’s ginormous! What we were thinking is beyond me now. But as a designer and a DIY-er… we had to have enough rooms in the house for everything. And we got to decorate every room! It took us about 3 months, in the middle of winter, in a neighbors very cold basement, to finish it. It was the funnest thing we’ve ever done!

That was many years ago now. Since then we have gone on to other creative things, but nothing as big or as fulfilling as creating that dollhouse.

Now let’s get back to Kerry being a baker. She’s awesome man! She’s been told many times she should open her own store. I’ve seen folks cry for joy seeing her walk in with cookies. She’s that good! So one year for her birthday, I handmade a miniature bakery for her. Built the furniture and made the food. Basically, I taught myself how to create desserts with polymer clay. It was SO much fun, I gave it to her 3 months before her birthday so she could share in this exciting new miniature world too. She was hooked the minute she received her gift. Cuz after all… it’s 2 Stinkin’ Cute!!!

After that, we have spent our time on and off working with polymer clay. What we discovered, though, was the love of creating mini furniture. We started making more and more furniture. We’d find inspiration everywhere… in stores, magazines, Pinterest and our own imagination.

Then the idea of an Etsy store came to us. We were so intimidated at first. What if we weren’t liked? What if we didn’t sell? What did we know about it anyway?

Well, we do know we are having oodles of fun. And we know it allows us to be creative, use our design and DIY skills, and do something together that makes us smile every day. We know we have found something that seems to fit us both perfectly. It gives us kicks and giggles!

So there you go. We hope it gives you kicks and giggles too!

Love,
Laurie and Kerry
