1:24 shoe house finished

 Dear readers, the shoe house is ready and it was verry nice to do.

So I worked a lot with self-drying clay, such as the roof and the outside, and the plant against the wall painted and glued with green and yellow powder

It was quite a hassle to get the lace into the shoe, drilled holes in the clay and it worked

All furniture  I made of stir sticks and a semi-circular bench in the tip of the shoe, unfortunately I can't hang anything on the wall there because everything is round.

In between I crocheted a few new mice and they sit wonderfully on a homemade garden bench

In the bedroom I covered the walls with fabric and I made sink.
And a small garden with flowers and potting soil made from tea, glued in place

Well the mice are enjoying themselves on their balcony.

Furniture 1:24

 Hello dear readers, now I have made the 1:24 furniture for the shoe house. It was a nice fiddly job but I think it turned out nicely, made from coffee sticks and tongue depressors or pop sticks?

Shoe house 1:24 part 2

 Hello dear readers and followers, and it's starting to look a lot like a shoe, a lot of work to make it but fun to do. First I put the frame together and covered it with very thin MDF and put the windows and doors in it, are made of plastic, which I still had lying around.

And then the clay, I first have to let some pieces dry again and then continue with the clay, and I managed to make a balcony on it at the front of the shoe.

Shoe house 1:24 part 1

 Hello dear readers, it has been a while but I have come up with something new, a shoe house.   I saw something like that on You Tube and yes this is it, so beautiful to see.       So I started with the shoe toe, I made it from plastic polystyrene foam, cut it into shape and glued it, covered it with painter's tape and then covered it with clay and now it has to dry.                                                 

The back of the shoe is made of very thin MDF, windows are placed in it and it is the start of the kitchen.

Christmas mouse

 Hello dear readers, I quickly crocheted a Christmas mouse, so cute. The gingerbread man is made of felt, so this mouse is busy decorating cookies, etc. In between she received a beautiful chocolate heart, now that will be a tasty snack for her.   Merry Christmas to all of you!

My inspiration.

Christmas shop

 Hello dear readers, this time I made a Christmas shop, very simple but with many miniatures. Made small Christmas trees and wreaths and many 3D printed minis to paint yourself. And also a 3D printed nativity scene, which was very difficult to paint, so very small, but succeeded. 

Furthermore, I made baskets and boxes for the Christmas baubles and a few angels and a sleigh made of paper and of course a few buckets with Christmas greenery. And I taped sheets of Christmas music to the back wall of the store.    this was another very fun project to do.

 Hello dear readers, I have already made a few winter scenes in a tea box. I found the inspiration on Pinterest from some beautiful images. So I started with clay and a bit of wood, I changed the scene (under the tree) with a small cabin, mountains in the background and lots of snow, etc...

And another one made very differently but with LED light.
