The Royal Wedding and a COUPON CODE!

Wow, I can't believe the wedding is tomorrow! It's Thursday 28th April and this evening I'll be at a British pub in Los Angeles watching the wedding live as it starts at 3 am Pacific Standard Time. I can't wait.

In honour of the Royal Wedding I'd like to offer everyone 25% off all in the Hummingbird Miniatures store for the day of the wedding only. It commences at 11 am GMT Friday 29th (3 am PST) and ends at midnight GMT Friday 29th (4 pm PST).

Enter the coupon code: ROYAL after you click to buy but before you pay. Etsy will automatically deduct 25% from your order, but not from shipping.

Hop over to my store whilst this offer lasts, and have fun watching the wedding!

It's Easter Sunday tomorrow! My friend gave me a basket filled with chocolate Caramel Easter eggs, a Lindt bunny, Snickers eggs, jelly beans and a cute little fluffy lamb!! I was so thrilled with it. Hope you all have a wonderful Easter.

Here's a fun Easter video about my Hummingbird Miniature Easter 2011 dollhouse miniature range. And scroll past that for photos as well. Oh, and don't miss the Easter promotion happening over at Pixie Dust Miniatures.... :)

Pink Rosebud Cake - Finally Sold!

Remember that cute Pink Rosebud Birthday Cake I made about 6 months ago? It was the prettiest cake I'd made (I thought) yet it sat in my shop and it sat in my shop and no-one bought it. Even the little teddy bear sitting next to it started to look forlorn.
But then this morning it sold! Love it when that happens - just when I'm about to give up on an item and give it away to a friend. :)

Easter Egg Decorations

Easter's not far off now is it?! "Oh to be in England now that April's here" (and I can't get Malteaser Easter eggs in California...!)

I made several tiny Easter egg ornaments for dollhouse Easter displays. 1:12 (one inch) scale in pastel colours and with lots of fabulous pretty shades of glitter. There are still some left at my shop.

Take a look! :)

A glimpse into my Workspace...

Wow, it's hot here today in LA! Just had lunch with a friend at my favourite cafe, sat outside, got home and had to take another shower immediately.
Even though Hallowe'en is months and months away I still seem to get requests for my old Hallowe'en 2010 Cake design and they sell throughout the year. So... even though I didn't think I'd ever make more of this particular design, I spent a good deal of yesterday making more (since I was totally sold out).

Took some snaps along the way because I know people in 'blogland' often prefer to see my 'un-posed' photographs. :)

And a reminder of the finished item below. Available at my store here.

Italian Fashion - well Pizza for your ears at any rate!

Add a little Italian glamour to your outfit! Aren't these pizza earrings cute? Have a slice of salami and olive on mozzarella... they come in dangle - small, smaller and hoops. All my findings are surgical steel but also available in silver plated findings - just ask.

Take a look over at my shop. :)

Pizza and a movie!

I don't know about you but I love ordering in a pizza and watching a movie (isn't Netflix the best?) Well I'm working on a lot of new products for 2011 so I want to clear out some designs and make room. I took some more photos of my Pizza Range and have listed the remaining pizzas at my shop at a discounted price. One inch (1:12) scale and made with passion and great attention to detail. I don't use real herbs on my pizzas (despite some of the miniature-making books suggesting doing this) because it means the pizza will eventually mold (and /or attract insects) and I like my minis to last forever, so it's clay all the way! :)
