Minis and Just Something Cathe Made

and in another case of great minds thinking alike..:)...yesterday as I purused through my google reader, checking out all of my favorite blogs, I came across this posting from Cathe Holden's Just Something I Made on a mini people mobile.
(pictured above) I nearly fell out of my chair as I read about her experiment with model train I have been in love with railroad mini's now for most of the year. I've been gluing these little guys just about everywhere I can find..thought about a mobile, but never made one..but look how cute Cathe's came out!! I die.

Here is a little scene that I put together on a model railroad, G scale wooden pallet. This one features a sinister scene of the cheating wife, her lover and her husband..had to make it a bit mystical, hence the giant mushroom! I'll have a few of these scenes, all different set ups, on etsy this week!

Just messin' around...

and now...time for something a little different..

I've been spending a lot of time lately just playing. I don't have too much going on right now, so I have the time to kind of just make what I want to make. I'm not worried about inventory for a show, or samples for a catalog or feeding this wonderful blog..:) without too much explanation, I thought I would just share a few of the things I've been making...

...scraps of cardboard, acrylic paint, stencil 1 stencils, and some little banner for the wall... banner...

the petaluma clock tower from western at the blvd..on a redwood scrap..lovin' the spray paint!

Magic Bullets

Hey everyyyybodyyyy! I've been gone for a while...hitting the craft show circuit like a madwoman! Mom and I packing and selling our wares all over this fruitful northern california!
We've been having a great time meeting all our fellow crafters and craft appreciators! We did the Rock Make Street Festival a few weekends back in San Francisco. There were 15 bands..and so much good music! I've fallen head over heels for the Magic the picture to hear 'Yesterday's seen better Days'....lovely...:)
