Surprise! I won a birthday gift!

Isn't this the cutest little vignette for a birthday party?    Chris P.'s Minis and More had a random drawing to celebrate reaching 100 followers (which coincided with her birthday).    I'm the lucky person who won the random drawing!    Now I must find that special place for this birthday celebration!   

Mini thanks Chris!  I love it!

A Dozen Mini Roses to Make

It's been months since I posted anything here!  My apologies!   Things got busy and I got involved in many other projects, you know how that can go!   The $5 dollhouse was finished a long time ago but I need to get some more photos to post!   Won't be doing that today, but a few moments ago I stumbled on this tutorial for making miniature roses that I wanted to share.  Very nice detail!  Take a look at True2Scale for the instructions.   She uses coffee filters or japanese silk paper and punches (1/4" heart, 3/16" teardrop, 1/4" star) to make the flowers and leaves.
