Being Featured!

I was recently being featured on 2 blogs.

One of which was Paper Cakes Finds, a pretty blog that features cute items. Of course there is a list of what they are looking for, but you can read it from their blog. The post I was in was called "Pretty Shabby".

The next blog I was featured in was hello, Palomina

Here's the blog post!

Go take a look at their beautiful blogs!

Show and Tell Monday ~ 1:12 Scale Pretty in Pink Patisserie Display Shelf

The talk on Wednesday went well! The magnet boards were a hit. Although it was a small crowd, I found it cozy and just nice for me. I was a little nervous, since this is the first time I am giving a talk. I'm just glad things went smoothly, and I raised some money to fund help promising young girls in school who has financial difficulty.

For the past 2 weeks, I've been working on a new concept patisserie shelf. Using the same antique style I've made for the bread display shelf earlier, I've transformed the top and made it into a contemporary patisserie shelf. I had fun working on this one, as this idea was conceptualized as I imagine customers walking by and peering at the delectable patisserie through the transparent screen. I also wanted the baker to an easier time cleaning up by wiping down the mosaic tile top after selling his artisan cakes for the day. That's how my inspiration came about! :)

Of course, it's even sweeter as I decided I wanted this to be pretty in pink! I also intend to have this style in other colours. What colours would you like it to be? Let me know.

The cake shelf measures approximately at 8.5cm tall, 9.5cm wide and 5cm deep.

Available at my etsy shop now!

Show and Tell Monday ~ Miniature Food Board Magnets

I made these miniature food board magnets for the talk this week. One each for every different design I can manage to make in a short time. I'm actually quite looking forward to the talk, which is a first time experience for me. :)

I'll share more of how it went next week!

Thanks to MairiTales and chicalessia, I found myself in 2 beautiful treasuries, in 2 different colour schemes.

One is a romantic violet, and the other is a fresh mint green. How lovely the colours are!

Show and Tell Monday ~ 1:12 scale profiterole towers

After the last 1:12 scale profiterole towers was sold a while ago, I haven't had chance to make another. I finally manage to make another new one, and this time, I made some taro flavoured ones. Brown, purple, pink and creamy white makes a nice combination I think! With such a colourful combination, I kept the decorations simple by just adding some fruit slices decoration. Hope you like it!

Available now at my etsy shop:

Next week is the miniature talk! I'm just tying up loose ends here, cleaning up my slides, write up, that really should be it.
