Malibu Dollhouse - Living Room

I just found this picture that I took of the living room in the Malibu dollhouse when I first finished it.  

I made the pillow, the purple flowers were a NAME swap gift, the glass table is by PRD Miniatures, the couch is from MiniModernista, the other couch is from Dolls House Emporium (as is the plant), and the other coffee table is a napkin holder.

Wishing everyone a wonderful New Year!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year and Hoping Everyone Enjoys the Magic of this Season!

As you can see, I've had a few days off and I've had fun playing with all my Christmas minis.  

Here is one of my favorite Christmas dolls: a mom coming home with some Christmas shopping (outside the Malibu doll house).

This mom (at Waterside Way) is taking a nap, after having done quite a bit of shopping.  

She managed to get some decorations up  (the children added their drawings):

But she still has to write her Christmas cards (although she did bake some gingerbread cookies with her children - one has to pick priorities after all!):

And she still has to finish wrapping all the presents (before her husband gets back with the kids):

But look, an elf has come to help here write Christmas cards (probably tempted in part by the yummy gingerbread cookies) :

And another elf is helping to wrap presents: 

So it should be a wonderful Christmas as always!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all my blog friends!  

I look forward to another year of sharing and learning from you!

Christmas Wreaths

Before finding the idea for the little santas, I also thought about making wreaths as gifts based on the Mitchy Moo Miniatures tutorial.  The one above is with blue glitter glue (because I happened to have that) and the one below is with silver glitter glue.  

They were a lot of fun to make too.  I made about six.  I used black floral tape because that is what the florist shop had, but brown floral tape would have been much better. 

And then Mitchy Moo Miniatures sent me one as a gift - so beautiful with the tiniest little stars!  Thank you!

Little Santas

I  was looking for somehting that I could make for the 22 members of my mini club as a gift.

I tried making the Santa Claus out of red pipe cleaners from tutorial article in the Dolls House Magazine, but I realized that would take me too long, although I did like them:

And then I saw a post from Kikodit on instagram on how to make little santas using a red bead, pale wood bead, red felt and cotton for the beard:  Hurray!  Something I could make quickly for 22 people.  And here they are:

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

Happy Halloween 2016!!

There's just so much studying to do when you're a witch -- all those potions and spells!

At least there are some good snacks while reviewing The Witch's Book of Potions and Incantantions (a kit I just made from Ann Vanture's Paper Minis).

And taking a break for tea is very easy when it pours itself:

Still one of my favorite dolls:

My latest witch doll purchase:

Happy Halloween!
