Its was ages ago.... last Christmas actually (but the magazine came out in November of course) 2011, a few of my photos were featured in the Spanish magazine - 'Miniaturas'. Just received my copy in the post and chuffed to be able to share it here on my blog!
Here's some of my work featured - my Christmas elves at work in the workshop and also Christmas food range of my other blog.

I've just listed two new pieces in my Fairytale Jewelry Range at my online shop. About time... I've been so slow adding more to this range even though some of it was made months ago and is sitting in a box wrapped in tissue paper, and achieving not a lot.
Reckon your taste in jewelry is magic? For any single gals out there who are sick of kissing frogs or have a fed-up friend who's reached that point (I know what it feels like), then brighten your / their day with this seriously cute little warty frog crowned in gold, and sitting nicely on a bronze-tone adjustable ring.
Or.... what kind of unique engagement ring could this be?!!
My jewelry is carefully handmade by myself to my own designs and in 1:12 scale. Some of these pieces take hours. Hope you enjoy having a look over at my shop, and don't forget to check out my other shop for recently added jewelry.

It's confirmed... leaving for New Zealand for 5 months whilst I await my new visa which will finally allow me back into the States.
Now I hate packing as much as the next person, and I especially hate packing up miniatures as each one has to be packed so carefully, it takes ages, and I always have to have them on my lap on the plane as carry-on. Not looking forward to a massive fragile carry-on bag on my lap for my 28 hour flight with 2 stop overs.... no way.
So... what does this all mean? It means I am trying to clear my stock so I have less to carry! I have lowered prices massively on lots of items (find greatest reductions in my 'Sale Section' of my online shop).
Don't miss the mega sale over on my other shop also.
Not keeping this sale going as long as I have done with my food shop, so get it while it's cheap - the sale starts now... Ready.... Steady.... GO!

Do you remember those Warty Cane Toads I made for Halloween 2010, inspired by the chorus of warty cane toads that sang in the Hogwarts choir in 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets'? Well, there are a couple still left at my online store, but I am thinking of discontinuing them in favour of my new designs...
This is a sneak peek at my newly created Witchy Cane Toads which come in all sorts of spooky colours. They take a heck of a lot longer to make and have so much detail and adorable little faces. Probably my favourite Pixie Dust Miniatures items to date. They took days to make and are 1:12 (one inch) scale.
Here are some pictures of my little colourful critters... as seen in the short film - Myrtle the Witch, - some will be made available at my online shop at a later date also.
And if you scroll past these new witchy toads, you'll see my original warty cane toad I made in Los Angeles. I remember when I first made one of these toads. I was going for realism, and to test how real my first one looked I put it on the edge of my bath and called my boyfriend over to my apartment. I said there seemed to be a toad or frog in my shower. He took a look, believed it and got a glass to put the little fellow in. It wasn't until he got particularly close and it wasn't moving that he knew something was up. Plus I couldn't stop laughing!

Yep, it's been time for toads lately... been making quite a few today to complete a commission. Will try to finish them tomorrow so I can start on another commission as I have about 12 things on the list right now. All the buses come at once, right?!
Thought I'd share some unfinished toads since I know many of you like to see things in process. :) I'll share completed photos when they're finished.
