Note from shop owner Happy New Year to Everyone. I just wanted to give a shop update. I still do not have a date that I will re-open the shop. This post is a bit long winded so please forgive me.

I have had to take time off to part-time home school my son Chris. He has learning disabilities and this year in his new school they did not give him any extra support at all. I mean no E.A. No Classroom extra help, No extra help from the teacher, Nothing! He is 12 and working at around the grade 4-5 level for some subjects and lower for others. They did not even adjust his grade level to his needs, which means he was expected to do grade 7 level with no extra help. So I am having to try to figure out how to best help him. We pulled him from that school and now have him in a small private school part time, but they have no E.A. so subjects like math and reading we are having to do at home. I struggle myself with these subjects so this is quite the interesting situation.

On top of this my lovely Mother in Law is struggling with stage 4 cancer. This has put alot of stress on all of our family and we are trying to find our way though the mist of coping with illness.

I am still trying to also get an area for me to work at as our basement reno has very much stalled. Grrrrrr

So I do apologies for not having things up and running again but hopefully I will be able to get a rhythm going and get back into the swing of things.

Thank you all for your continued support.

About Me.

I have been fascinated with miniatures since I was a small child.
I strive for attention to detail and authenticity to 1/12 scale and realism in all my displays and love vintage and antiqued items. Paper is my favorite medium. I am in awe of how many ways paper can be manipulated and distressed to give a vintage feel to any piece.I tend to see the world through a miniature lens and love working as a Miniature Artist. Etsy allows me to work from home and still be around for my children but also to have a creative outlet.

Creative inspiration is very important, to be able then to translate that to a artistic piece is a fascinating process. When you are working at your best you are lost into the piece your designing, it gives you an amazing scene of freedom and fulfillment.

I thank the Lord for my Gift of loving miniatures and having the privilege of being able to do what I love.My background is in Purchasing,Merchandising,Managing and I am a trained floral designer.My work has been shown on TV and In Major Store Windows in the US. I work in both 1/12 scale and 1/6 and 1/24

Thank you for coming to my Etsy Shop,I hope you find some inspiration and enjoy being lost in the world of mini!!
