Truly Teeny Santa Mugs of Cocoa!

Sooooooo teeny! I love how these teeny tiny Santa mugs came out. They are porcelain mugs which I hand painted after filling with 'whipped cream' and topped with a candy cane stirrer.

See them in the making here

Or buy one for your favourite miniature collector here! Note that my shop is temporarily on vacation mode so it's not possible to buy anything from me this week, but feel free to message me there (or to my personal email) if you have any questions or concerns.

Christmas Cookie Prep Board

Only made one of these, and it's super cute! It's a shabby-chic red prep board with Christmas Tree cookies, frosting, a cookie cutter and hand-painted dishes. The coffee cup has whipped cream and a candy cane stirrer.

Find my Christmas Cookie Prep Board at my online shop here. :)

Christmas 2011 - Coming soon...

Just a sneak peek at what's coming this Christmas 2011, and will available in the next couple of days. Don't miss out on the Black Friday Sale (coupon code info in previous post here) and be sure to check back here for the latest miniatures, and my online shop as they begin to be listed. :)

Black Friday Sale!!!

Christmas shopping officially starts here! For all my American friends, I'd like to say 'Happy Thanksgiving'! Hope you all had wonderful days with your families. I'm stuffed, having just got back from turkey, yams and cranberry sauce at my boyfriend's parents' house. :)

To all my non-American friends, I might need to explain what 'Black Friday' is. It's the day after Thanksgiving in America when people traditionally start their holiday shopping and most major shops offer big discounts for the next 3 days.

So I am happy to offer everyone 20% off for the next 3 days (starting tonight actually) and ending on Sunday at midnight PST.

Go to my online store here... and enter the code: BLACK after you click to buy but before you pay, and 20% will be deducted from the total of your order, but not from shipping. Don't miss out on the same discount over at my other store (here) too.

For those that don't yet know, I am moving from the US to the UK in a little over a week from now. So after that time the shops will both be closed for a period as I adjust to a new life over in Britain, unpack... and await my boxes which will arrive 6-10 weeks after I do. So if there's something you'd like you'd better get it now as it could be a while before it's available again!

My Workspace... Making Christmas... 2011!

Hi everyone, it's been a while! Been super busy, not to mention busy over at my other store (keep up with the miniature magic by following my other blog here, and if you like, you can keep up with what's happening in my movie world by following my professional blog here).

So, I'm currently making Christmas 2011 cookies, prep boards, hot chocolate with whipped cream in Santa mugs and more... take a look at my workspace. These are un-posed photos of my minis in the making. Enjoy! ;)

Baked Lobster

In a seafood kind of mood... I made a couple of baked lobsters. Part of the Best of British Collection, as lobster has been held in high esteem in Britain for centuries and a notable part of our culinary identity. It surprised me to learn that it wasn't popular in America until fairly recently! Well in agreement with some other websites, Wikipedia says "American lobster was initially deemed worthy only of being used as fertilizer or fish bait, and it was not until well into the twentieth century that it was viewed as more than a low-priced canned staple food." 

So here's my lobster in one inch scale, on a bed of mixed greens with lemon halves
(all made by me of course!) ;) You can find one on my shop here. This could be used in a modern / Victorian / even Tudor setting. (Don't worry, we've had lemons in England since the 1500s)!
