DIY Miniature Muffin Pan

Sorry it's been a while since my last post. I am still here.  It's just that Summer is a very busy time for us with all the swimming, fishing, camping and much more.  However, I did find the time to make a mini for you.  I started out with a tray that comes with the Big Breakfast that you get from Mcdonald's.

I cut out a piece that looked about the right size for what I was wanting to do first.

This it the piece that I ended with.

Then I painted it with some metallic silver nail polish.

I am happy with the final result.  I may have to do another kitchen scene soon with the little collection I've started of diy miniature kitchen accessories.

Miniature Faux Butterfly Terrarium Display

Miniature Faux Butterfly Terrarium Display

So I had an idea...usually how my diy minis come about.  It started out with a clear lid off a small spray bottle.

I thought it would be great for one of those dome scenes.  I also used a button, my dried yellow flowers and some nail art stickers.

The glue was still drying when I took the picture.  As for the new table runner, I bought it for 50 cents at a 2nd hand shop.  I believe it was a book mark in it's previous life.

Hope you enjoy my newest mini!  Have a blessed day!

New Miniature Table

I made a table using a small wooden candle holder and a wood disk.

It still needs another coat of paint but I do like how it turned out.  Also, my husband gave me some flowers recently and they included some small yellow flowers that I dried.  I cut a small bit of them and put them in a vase (bead).  Aren't they pretty?!

Miniature Leather Sofa

Our lamp shade broke.  I was about throw it away when I saw it's potential for repurposing.

It was made from some faux leather.

It's not the prettiest sofa in the world but I like it.  

That's all I have for you for now.  See you next week.

Miniature Bohemian Bedroom

I was going to try and wait to post this on Friday but I am too excited.  I'm so happy with the latest scene I put together.  It's a good thing to take a break every once in a while, you come back stronger!

miniature bedroom

You'll probably recognize a lot of stuff from previous projects.  But there are some new things too.

The lamp, for example, is new.  I made it using a makeup lid and another chess piece.  The drift wood is something I've had forever and only recently saw a way to use it finally.  And there are some pieces that I haven't used in a long time like the clear side tables.

witchy miniatures

I also put in some mini "crystals".  They are from my collection of Pecos Diamonds that I collected as a kid.  I feel it makes it a little witchy.

I also finally used that little tray that my friend gave me a while back.

miniature bedroom dresser

I placed a bunch of teeny tiny sea shells in a bowl on the dresser and a candle that I've hardly used.

miniature cat

The chest is an incense holder.  As for the cat, I need to try and paint them to make them look a little better at some point.

miniature boho

The room was a little bland before I realized what was missing.  Plants!  So I put plants EVERYWHERE!  They really make the room so much better.

I just love all the colors in this room.  The blues, oranges and pinks!  Notice the pink rug?  I will have to build a permanent room box to repeat this scene for keeps soon.

Witchy Junk Journal

No miniatures here today.  In fact, I'll be taking a little break from minis.  It has been a little difficult trying to keep up posting to this blog 3 times a week.  Plus I have my other two blogs that I've barely been able to keep up with so from now on, I'll only be posting to this blog once a week.  Besides, that will give me more time to visit all of your lovely blogs.  In fact, drop a link in the comments below and give me something new to check out.

Now, on to the fun stuff.  I made a new junk journal.  It is now my favorite thing ever.  I am still in the process of fixing it up but I wanted to share with you what I have so far.

My book of witchcraft

diy book of spells

I plan on using this journal for my list of herbal apothecary ingredients, recipes for things such my mulberry and dandelion jams, and recipes for other things from diy cleaning supplies to salves and bath bombs.  It is 200 pages with lots of pockets and tuck spots.  I made it a little thin so that I can add to it if I need to.

junk journal pockets

Here is a picture of me deciding on what pockets and flip outs I'd put in it.

Here is the cover before it was finished.  I used an old dictionary cover.

And the above picture was the incomplete inside cover.  The pictures below are of my favorite pages from the book.

Though I used mostly my own stash of scrap paper, a friend of mine let me raid her stash and I definitely took advantage including the above's velvety paper.

This pocket was made from the bottom of a paper bag.

This part flips out for more writing space.

Short and Sweet: Mini Pyrex Bowl

miniature pyrex bowls

Remember the red pyrex bowl I made a while back?  Well, I thought I would try to make another one but this time using the packaging from some chewable mints.

However, I am having difficulties getting all the foil off so if any of you lovely people have a solution for that, drop it down in the comments.  I would be most appreciative.
