About Me

I've been into dollhouse miniatures since the early 1990's now and when I realized how much I've learned during that time, I thought I'd make a blog to share my knowledge with others. I'm mostly auto-deduct, but always found help on the Internet and in specific books. The mini-world starts and ends with your own imagination, so let there be no limit. And never say : I CAN'T .... because you can, you just need to try and have the necessary know-how. And that's the main reason why I started this blog, because I wanna share what I know with newbies in the miniature world or anybody else who might be interested in sharing what I've learned so far. So, hopefully, I'll be able to provide some useful hints, tips and tricks for those of you out there just starting with this wonderful hobby

DIY : Picnic Basket

Hello there and welcome to my new followers

Good to have you here, I'm sure you'll enjoy browsing through my blog, if you're a
miniature lover like I am

Some time ago, I purchased 2 DVD's called A MINI DAY AT THE BEACH 1+2 (available from Ashdown) where the late Joyce Dean shares a lot of very useful tutorials if you wanna make accessories for beach scene

Of course, this DVD came in handy for my beach shop project ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜„

The one I like the most was the PICNIC BASKET, so I just had to try it out. Here's the result and if you like it, I do have the patterns in a PDF file and I'm more than happy to share. Feel free to either leave a comment here or contact me directly at my email (dmzminiatures@gmail.com)

If you liked this project, come back soon, there's more to come

See ya
