It's been a while...

I wish that I had not let so many months go by without a post, but I have a good excuse. I now have a real, full-time job in my field. I've been busy, but I'm getting an income and things are considerably less scarier than they were.

I have been making things, but I haven't finished much to show. Here are a couple of little projects I've completed.
Alex colored the paper an cut the petals on this one. I made the leaves and assembled the rest. I'm lucky that my partner is so encouraging of my obsession/hobby that even he gets into it occasionally.

These are the tulips I started a while ago. The bucket was made with my new Cameo Silhouette machine. I scaled a bucket cupcake holder and assembled it. I used silver spray paint. It turned out a little mottled, but that's good if it's a galvanized bucket.
 I have adapted a project by Kris Compas from 1 Inch Minis for my Silhouette machine. Details to come soon... I'm still in the sanding and gessoing process, but it has been an interesting experiment. I'm anxious to share what the Silhouette can do with the miniatures community. 

So off to bed at 9:30 pm... I have 9 hour days Monday through Thursday and a half day on Fridays (most of the time). I hope to have some minis time this weekend. I hope all my followers are well. Thanks for reading this if you're still with me.


  1. Noooooo.... I can't afford to buy a silhouette *cries* and I get really narky if I don't have all the cool tools :D

    but... I do really want to see what you have done!

  2. Ok Q, I just posted some Silhouette projects. Let me know what you think and if you have any questions. I hope it does not disappoint.

  3. eeks.... I wanted one before you posted, now I have to have one. They cost so much over here. (boo!) :D
