Giveaway: have a tast of the good life.. at least in mini!

Hello everyone,

I found a "yummy' giveaway today.  Robertta is having a contest for a mini Italian style feast.  She has lots of cheeses, sweets and a delicious looking coffee among other things.  We have until June 2 to stop by her blog and leave a comment.  You can find her and her contest here.  Best of luck to all of you who enter.

my mini attempt

Good afternoon everyone,

We are off to a family bbq later this afternoon so I am hoping the weather stays nice.  It was sunny but the clouds have started to roll in.  Maybe they will just keep rolling away.  I will keep my fingers crossed.  In the meantime, I thought I would show you my attempts at making my own miniature jugs and cans.  I haven't quite gotten the knack of finishing them properly.  I would like to shabby them up a bit so I am going to keep playing around, but I think these first versions turned out alright.  The tutorial I used for these can be found at Marlies.  She explains how to make them so that even I can come up with something that resembles what she intended!  I am going to try to get some better pictures as well as some updated versions of the pitcher to show but for now I couldn't wait to share what I managed to create.  Hope you like it,

I'm Alive

Hello all,

Just a quick post to let you know I am still here!  I have made a few dollhouse things in the last couple of weeks so here is a preview.
