My Bistro Tutorial

Hello there,
Well the sun is out so for a change we have some bright, smiley weather, its minis aside and off to the garden for me later, although I may just take a few mini pictures while the weather is good.

Just a quick note to say that my tutorial for my bistro set has been featured in Dolls House & Miniature Scene magazine, June edition – see the pictures below.  It is made from very basic materials, just some card, glue and paint.  It is very easy to make and looks very effective so if you have a bit of spare time why not have a go. 

Have a nice day all, talk soon.

Hello mini friends…

Gosh we’re half way through May already and hardly any sun BOOOOOO!  I can’t believe how fast time flys.  Well what to tell you, as always I’ve been busy but you knew that already lol.  I’ve had to spend ages trying to find the best way to send my minis to customers because the postal prices in the UK have rocketed. I’ve now resorted to some unusual packaging techniques in order to keep my packages small and the prices down.  You see a very long and very thin package is cheap to send but as soon as its goes past a certain thickness Royal Mail adds on an extra £2+!!  Daylight robbery you might say.  Anyway, for larger packages I now use a private delivery firm which has the benefit of collecting from my door so no post office trips, well there had to be one plus point lol.

Now for the bad news…. I have had to put a block on making bespoke orders until at least October when I will review the situation.  I have been bombarded with orders and as there is only one of me lol so I’ve not seem much daylight, then again there has not been much sun so I guess I’m not missing much.  Some GOOD NEWS though, I will still make some prams and pushchairs and pop them up for sale on my ‘SHOP’ page of on my (soon to be finished, with luck lol) webpage.

I should have lots of pictures of bespoke orders to show you soon but in the meantime, I made a little nursery set recently and it is available for sale on my ‘shop’ pages and there are lots of pictures below.  Hope you like them.  Now I’m off back to my work room to work hard on getting my orders finished.

See you soon.
