What Happened?

What in the world happened? I gained over 20 new followers almost over night. WOW! Hello, and I hope you enjoy making minis with us.

I just want to remind you all that I do have some instructions early in the blog. They are "wordy" with no as you go pictures, but are really worth a look.

Aged Painted Finish, March 8, 2010

Cheater Rugs, Part 2, Feb. 26, 2010, talks about buying suede paper from for making rugs with your printer.

And if you have any questions about anything in any of the room boxes I would be happy to make it into a blog project for you all.

Dangerous Mezzo, I was looking around online for fabric and I found Clarice Cliff fabric, who knew? It's at www.quilts - kits - and made by Fabric Freedom and called Deco Dance. If I still quilted I would buy some, but I know if I bought it now it would just sit and my kids would have something else to throw out!

I am working on chairs for Merry Jingle, so I have to get back to work.

Again, Welcome to all the new followers.

  4. I found you on a feature on some other blog yesterday...maybe that's where everyone else found you too? It's so hard to find tutorials on making minis online because people want to sell their minis so they don't share...I love that you have tutorials so I can try it all out! :)

  5. Hello kris! I think I lot of people found you because you were linked a few days ago from here:

  8. As others have said, you do such amazing work that it's a wonder that you don't have 500 followers :D
