Charleston Low Country Boil

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

On August 23, 2018 I will be teaching my first major workshop at the N.A.M.E. National Convention at Charleston, SC. We will be making a Charleston Low Country Boil complete with shrimp, corn on the cob, potatoes, and smoked sausage. We will serve it up the Charleston way, on newspapers. My actual class is full. For dollhouse clubs near me, we can work it out for a workshop at your club meeting.

Peach Day

Tuesday, March 27th, 2018
Today was peach day in my workshop. I love making peaches. This will do for a start. However, I will need many more for my upcoming dollhouse and miniature shows. I needed to make a basket of peaches for an order to be mailed today. Did I say that my baskets of peaches are scented? Actually, they can come scented or unscented. This is a picture of the finished basket and today’s peach making session.

Dinner and a Mini

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

I really look forward to December when I can get with my mini friends for Dinner and a Mini. It’s always exciting to see what project has been created for us to work on. This year, we worked on¬†Geppetto’s workshop. I haven’t finished mine yet, but as soon as I have it finished, I will upload a picture. The scene fits in a softball display box and comes with a lighted fire in the fireplace. I still have to finish the trim on the outside and make the selves and the counter on the inside. Then, I can make tiny toys and other furniture for the shop. For now, I must set this project aside to make way for Christmas. I promise to return to Geppetto’s Shop soon.

Adding Past Projects

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Kennedy's NurseryI think it is time for me to add some of my older projects to my blog. One of the first projects I did when I started back into making miniature room boxes was a nursery. A dear friend who worked at CompuServe when I was working there as contractor told me that he and his wife were to adopt a baby from China. This one bit of information ignited the spark that sent me back into the world of miniatures. I decided to make them a miniature nursery using the pictures they uploaded. Many of his co-workers watched over the weeks and months as I created this for them.¬† Read the story of Kennedy’s Nursery.
