Feature - at the Craft Institute

A fun little web feature for you today! The Craft Institute did a neat little 'Take Ten...' with me, asking me all about my miniature food and also my fairytale miniatures (from my other blog here).

You can see a preview of the web feature by clicking the image below, or go directly to it at the Craft Institute here.

And don't forget that Valentine's Day is coming up, and although my shop is closed for the next 2 weeks whilst I move workshop from the UK to the US, you can still purchase this fun PDF document tutorial here and learn to make your own Valentine's Day miniature cupcakes.

Miniature birthdays for 2013!

Wondering what's in store for Hummingbird Miniatures in 2013....?! I'll tell you. :)

First of all, I must apologise for my absence for a few weeks of this year thus far. I've been busily preparing for my move back to the US and also had some exciting work in miniatures at a film company... for an insight into my miniature work outside of Hummingbird Miniatures see my professional blog here.

Now, as for 2013 - I'll be moving back to Los Angeles in about 10 days time (during which I am afraid my online Hummingbird Miniatures shop will remain closed)... then I will re-open, all miniatures will ship from LA and I will soon introduce my new ranges. Yay!

Expect to see a much anticipated new Birthday Cake range (which I started working on back in summer 2012 and blogged about here)... there will be very detailed and tiny birthday cake prep boards, birthday cake tables, birthday party gift sets and birthday cake mini food jewelry.

There will not be a Valentines range this year (but there will be on my other blog) however, there will be Mexican food, summery foods, Independence Day foods, a Hummingbird Miniatures FURNITURE RANGE and a whole lot more in store which I'll be a bit secretive about for now! Follow this blog here and / or become a fan on Facebook here and you'll be able to stay ahead of these new ranges, new coupon codes and a brand new competition coming soon....

Here's a glimpse at the new birthday range in the making... including tiny hand-blown glass jars of birthday candles for prep boards and prep tables, birthday cake cookbooks... and more...

Happy 2013 and Shop Announcement!

Hello everyone!
Happy New Year......! Yes I know, it's already 11th January 2013 and have only just found the time to wish you all a Happy New Year but I've been a busy bumble bee as of late! Hope you all enjoyed the countdown and have set off on the right foot.

Thank you to everyone who jumped on my big post-Christmas sale. All orders were shipped out promptly via First Class Delivery of course, and everything wrapped ready for gift giving as usual. :)

I am off to Manchester, England to work on some miniature sets for a film company, so I have set my shops to 'vacation mode' for a bit (hopefully not much more than a week or two). So please note that as of today my online Hummingbird Miniatures shop will be on vacation, but you will be able to buy again soon. Feel free to email me if you have any queries.

Until then - have you seen the latest YouTube video? It's show-casing products from last year and I finally uploaded it yesterday!
