- 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

Hi there and welcome back to my blog
I haven't had much time to post the last few days, that's because I'm seriously thinking about opening an online shop to sell my own miniatures and I'm actually working on a new website with a shop
This will take a while of course, not just to set up the website and the shop, but also to make all the items supposed to be sold later
Today I'd like to show you a few pics of my recently renewed workplace ....
YES, that's where it all happens
Many of you probably recognize the furniture style, since this swedish label
is well known all over the world
It took me over 2 weeks to really get it all organized like that, tossing the old furniture out and getting the new one in wasn't the worse part
But what I had to do was to really organize all my drawers, all the compartments, labeling everything and this is what took most of the time
But I'm very happy with the result, I even assembled all the shelves all by myself !!!
So let's take a little tour though my workplace
This is what you see when you come in ..... all the shelves are nicely filled and labeled
A closer look at one of the shelves
Then, when we turn left, we see the door leading to our garden, which is absolutely fantastic during the summer months, I can almost work outside, so to say :-)
If we continue turning left a little more, we come to my polymer clay corner
There's everything you need to work with Fimo
Most important : the oven to bake the polumer clay
All sorts of small boxes and containers I purchased over the years
There's even a miniature jukebox .... and it really works, it's a battery operated radio
And this is the main work table. As you see, it doesn't have to be that big (the table), since working with miniatures doesn't take up that much space
OK this doesn't count when I'm building a dollhouse of course, but since my entire workplace has about 25 m2, there's lots of space in the middle of the room for a big project
I don't know if it's such a good idea to show you a closeup picture of my work table 😜😜😜😜
but it usually doesn't look that messy ..... I swear !
I even took the time and painted all the wooden drawers and labeled everything, that way it's so much easier to find what I'm looking for
All my books about dollhouses and miniatures
All the compartments of the shelves are also labeled
Maybe this gives you an idea to organize your own workspace, who knows
Oh, and by the way ..... I'm also working on making some video tutorials to add to my youtube channel and I'm still in the learning process cutting the "movies" with iMovie, but I'm a fast learner, lol, so stay tuned, there's more to come
