Still here...

Still hers... still alive... Just haven't made any miniatures

Well... it's 1 month and 1 week since I turn 50.

Cause I have no friends or relatives there were no party.. And my only present was hubby taking me to open-air theater to see a music-rich comedy which was okay.. And we eat out - daughter gave us gift certificate for it so that I could for once eat food that I didn't have to make myself - so pizza and theater...

I don't like being the center of attention, but not having a "big five O" party kind of made me feel that I signify nothing in this world - I don't matter..

And I didn't get any miniature related stuff :'(
I had for months hinted silently to family, that I wouldn't mind getting some plant making kits or other kits... or at least something miniature related...

Well... Little over year gone and I finally did make someting small in miniature, it's not much, but at least I managed to make something..

Just few wands..

I've played in my mind with thought of maybe trying to make a small swap with someone - in a hope that it would get me back in to the world on miniature making that I love so much... But then, what if I can't get myself into really making it??
It would be more than wonderful to get something nice at mail - other then just bills and other such...

Last 2 Christmas times have been so dull cause haven't had any swap parcels to open and make the December more fun that way..

I've got to get myself back to making them or I might as well just close this blog... why keep it if I don't do anything..

I will see until this years end how things turn out - if I don't get myself back here - I will close this...
I don't think it will make any difference to anyone..... We'll see..

What a begin...

When your blue - you tend to forget, that even if you don't have many kind and friendly people around you in your life - that doesn't mean they don't exist..

As I told last time - there's been many setbacks in my life one way or an other and they took me so low I lost the spark of making miniatures.. and it made me feel more sad all the time - but just couldn't find my way out of it..

To my luck there game 3 wonderful "Fairy godmothers" ;)  that reached out a helping hand via post and sent me most wonderful gifts that cheered up my mood and got me astonished of how kind some can be 💗

And I promise to do my best to think only that I do am worth of them *grin*

We have rush times at work - so I has really been quite agony to not have time to show these beauties earlier - quality of the images is what it is, but I'm sure you get hang off what's in the picture - I hope..

First game in Jodi's gift  - and I'm first to admit, that it got me in to tears..
Love it so much, I barely dare to touch it..
It's a kit to make this!! (**)
Although I'm not gonna make it exactly as in the picture cause as soon as I saw it I thought - spiders! there has to be spiders in some cake and maybe bats or something like that... And skeleton parts here and there... It's too "neat and clean".. Yeah - I see that it should be more witchy..
So I'm going to see if I can turn it more in to Honey Dukes way..
 Lot of bags with many things to make - I'm gonna make patterns out of them and do some practice pieces from cardboard so I won't screw these up.. Plus I can try that way what would look best..

 It had even the cat in it!! She's getting home somewhere else in future.. Cakes need some decorating - they look too "clean" that way...

 And I think I make plants/vines with bit more darker colors than that..
 ... from these parts...
 ... should a Witchy Cafe rise..
Lot of printable stuff to make too.. Time shows if I can turn them more "spooky"

Next post brought Véronique's gift.. So many treasures - hard to tell which of them I like most..
 Never seen so tiny Legos!!
 Lanterns?? or could they turn something else too...
 Have absolutely no idea what to make out of these, but they are so lovely - maybe Wall Sconces..??  Don't know what they are called and what others have made from them, but I'm sure I'll find ideas somewhere..
 Cute bells - maybe I should put one of them to the Witchy Cafe...??
 A candle in them... or some small creature...
 chandelier or dessert bowls...

 so pretty... no idea what to do with them, but my inner magpie absolutely loves them.. My animal families are trying to reserve them to themselves - they claim that if they ever get homes of their own - they need pretty stuff there, and what could be prettier than these.. So I think most of them are taken...
 Potion-bottles - no doubt about it...

 had to draw the lines of the matchstick  cause you can't see that it is there without it *grin*
I had to read many times that it a working lamp before it sank in to my head (^^)  and took a while to understand how it works
 Would these make good doilies..??
 Materials to make mirrors - Just look at those frames!! Aren't they beautiful (**)
Some pets too... Bunny will have it's place on the future Bunny-roombox might let it keep the wagon cause it looks so cute in it..
Cat is so much like my boy Pilkku - think I'm gonna add few spots of white paint in it to make it look more like him..
And these I'm gonna paint and put in the Cafe - they will be perfect in there (^^)
Last but not least game in Drora's gift
 Isn't it funny coincidence that all 3 gifts had a cat in them ? (^^)  This might end up to my Bunny-families pet - I heard so much whispering as they saw it... but we'll see how it goes..
 There really is such tine shells..?? Wow... LOVE the blue framing they've put on.. For some odd reason only word that came in to my head as I saw it was "Moominpappa"
 Speaking of tiny.... Well there's gonna be a big fight about who's getting them... Can't get over how tiny they are!

 ... lot of takers for this too...
Okay...  I admit... I started to laugh as soon as I saw this. No, there's absolutely nothing wrong with it - it just that what are the odds for this..
It's just perfect for the Cafe!!!  Don't you think??
Maybe add a spider or two to climb on top of them...??  IF I can somehow make so tiny spiders..

I don't think I can ever find words enough to tell how grateful and  humble I am of these gifts..
I have so many ideas rushing in my head at this point - should I do this or should I do that.. Gosh I have missed that feeling..
Love you all wonderful ladies to the moon and back 💗

Cause of these wonderful gifts, I made a promise to myself - in this year (and hopefully long after it too) I'm gonna try to make at least 1 miniature per month.
No matter how big a small, but at least one.. In a hopes of getting in to point I make them more often, but this is a starter..

And I'm going to try to make a "Trash-To-Treasure" series type of thing more a less for myself. Just pick a trash and see what I can do with it - how many things can I make say like from toothpaste tube cap or so.. 
Sure there would be things that many have done before, but I'm hoping it would get my inspirations to bloom... Plus it would be fun to see how many things I could come up with..

What do you think - good idea or not..?? Go for it or bury it...
