My house smells so sweet

One of my favorite parts of the Holiday season is the baking and sweet smells. There is nothing like sugar, butter and vanilla. Well maybe chocolate is pretty wonderful too. For the past week I have been baking , baking and baking. I think homemade cookies make very good gifts. I give them to the ladies that work at my bank, to my wonderful friends and family. My kids enjoy them too. My son just came in and had a couple for breakfast Lol. This year we had a new cookie cutter. It was the cupcake shape in different sizes. It was sent to me from Mercedes. Her blog Liberty Biberty. Thank you Mercedes for this fun fun new cutter. Those cookies were the first to go. I hope you are finding some time to bake the things you enjoy and share them with people you love. Mini hugs!

I'd like to share a project with you

As promised I'm trying to do a better job of visiting the blog and sharing fun things going on in my miniature life. Well for months now I have had a special project going on. It is a cupcake bakeshop modeled after a real one. When finished it will travel there to be displayed for many to see. Very exciting stuff. I have really took this one to heart and I want everything including all the little foods to look as close as possible to the real life ones. It is close to completion now and I will be sharing the finished piece with you soon. For now here are some sneak peeks. I made the little cakes on the cake stands the other day. Very happy with them. What do you think? I do hope the holidays are finding you well and happy. I know it can be tough this time of year. Just remember do the best you can. Happy Holidays! See you soon. Mini hugs!

A new glass top for my table

So I like to create little vision boards with things that represent me and my wishes for the future. I thought it would be fun to make on with the little table in my workshop. I arranged my pictures and things on the table and then placed a glass table top over them. Here is the end result. I love it! Real life has been taking me away again but I'm slowing finding time for my miniature life. Should have some fun pictures soon. Happy weekend everyone. Mini hugs!

Mini is loving our new workspace

Wanted to stop in and say "Hi" to my blog friends. I have been so busy trying to get the shop finished and organized. I have been organizing the house as well. It has been long over due. It is a good feeling when you are all finished. Of course right by my side has been my sweet little "mini" dog. I took these pictures of her enjoying the warm sun the other day. They make me smile.
I took my two youngest to take their senior pictures for the yearbook today. I just don't know where the time has gone. It really goes by so quickly. To everyone with little ones. It really goes by fast so enjoy all those little kid moments each and every one of them because you will miss those moments someday. Someday comes so much sooner than you think. Mini hugs!

My shop is done and I'm moving in

To say that I'm excited would be a understatement. I'm beyond excited. For over 20 years Kim's minis has been in various kitchens and spread across much of the kitchen table. Today I move into my own little shop, space, whatever you want to call it. Its mine!!!. I chose to do it white with some shabby style. My favorite. It's mine after all it should represent me. I also chose white for light. Lighting is everything when you work with such tiny things.
I hope you like it so far. Just finished painting today so now the decorating begins. Much happy mini creating will happen here. I look forward to sharing it with you. Mini hugs!

It has been a long time coming but I couldn't be happier. I will share pictures soon. Added another window today. Painting next week and then wood flooring. Did I mention how excited I feel? No more feeling guilty or worrying.
Today I share with you a little shabby baking shelf and a fun whoopie pie party cake. I hope my minis show my mood. Happy happy happy!!!! I hope happy is finding you as well. Mini hugs!
