My Workspace... Hummingbird Furniture

Now this is what I call a sneak peek! You can barely tell what I am doing, but that's because I want it to be a fun surprise. I've been busily designing and making new special furniture pieces for Hummingbird Miniatures (and also my other blog with most recent update here) and will have great new pieces for upcoming fairs and also my online shop.

Stay tuned to see more both here and on the Hummingbird Miniatures Facebook page.

Featured in Miniaturas

Sick of hearing me blog about magazine and book features yet?! Okay, last one, last one... for at least a few weeks, okay?!

Got my copy of Spanish miniature publication ' Miniaturas' magazine in the post and have shared images they used along with the mini feature below. It's from Dec of last year (2012) and it showcases some of my Christmas Range from 2012.

Much more of my Christmas 2012 Range was featured in 'Dolls House and Miniature Scene' last year (post about that here).

Next time you hear from me will be to show you some new minis, honestly! Don't forget to check the Hummingbird Miniatures Facebook page as well for latest news and photos.

That's right - Hummingbird Miniatures is now part of a great new book recently released by Ashdown Publishing!

Traci Nigon has edited a fabulous book of Christmas miniatures made from a variety of miniaturists from around the world. My dining table of Christmas foods made it to the front cover. It's entitled 'Mini Christmas Cooking: Volume 2'

Find it on iTunes.

The book description reads:

Put away your boring old cookbooks and open up the perfect companion for filling your mini holiday table! In this book you’ll find even more comforting dishes and mouth-watering sweets for your dollhouse kitchen.
If you’re feeling the chill this winter, you can warm your mini fingers with cups of Snowman Soup (hot chocolate with marshmallows), some crispy baked bread fresh from the oven, or a delicious apple pie. You can enjoy familiar main courses like roast chicken or turkey drumsticks, or fun desserts and sweets from gingerbread men (of course!) to a holiday candy platter.

This is my original image from my Christmas 2010 Range.

American Miniaturist Feature

It's always fun to check my mail box and find my hard copy of a miniature magazine I've appeared in. I recently received my copy of American Miniaturist from Dec of last year (2012) with a little two page feature on my Hummingbird Miniatures Christmas food. They also included some photos from my other brand (blog here).

Here's the article and the images used below. They used pictures from my Christmas 2010 Range and my Christmas 2011 Range (whilst my Christmas 2012 Range was featured extensively in Dolls House & Miniature Scene last Dec).

Click on the magazine front cover to be taken to the American Miniaturist site where you can find their back issues and such.
