Magical Miniatures

If you love all things magical and miniature you are in the right place.

About me and my blog

I am a mother of three and work on a market stall. In my free time I love to make magical miniatures. It all started with my gran who spent hours when I was a child teaching me how to make do. This entailed mending and fixing and making things from scratch. My dolls house consisted of cardboard boxes with windows cut out, beautifully decorated and all furniture hand made. We sat for hours making clothes and accessories for my dolls to the envy of my friends that all had the same generic stuff. So thanks gran for the inspiration. I hope you enjoy my art and my blog. Thanks for visiting.

A winters street

As I worked out how to make snow I decided to do a snow scene. I took 3 tic tac packets taking off the tops and stuck a dolls house light bulb into the top of each of them running the wires out of the side.
As I had some left over brick paper I cut windows and popped it onto the plastic box so light will shine out. Roofs are made from card and I used traditional dolls house roof tiles to cover them.
The door, window frames and fence are matchsticks that I cut down to size. 
I created the base from card and paper machete and the paths are marl stone.
There is still loads to do yet but I thought I'd give you a little peak along the way.
