Show and Tell Monday ~ New Desserts 2

I've established a routine every week when it comes to cleaning. As I work on miniatures throughout the week, my desk can get a little messy and dirty. So I've put aside Saturday mornings to clean my work desk. It can take quite a bit of time as I have to move things around to make sure I clean all surfaces. On Saturday, I think I took about 2 hours to clean my table, and it's ready for this week's work again! But I couldn't stand working on dirty surfaces, so I need to clean weekly.

One of the reasons why miniature making is different from other crafts is because there is a lot of materials needed - and you only use a little each time. From tools like cutter, ruler, wood, sculpting tools, clay, acrylic paints, oil colours, glass paints, toothpicks, wires, paint brushes, dried flowers, different types of glue for different usage (this is not even the entire list) - it does add up to alot.!

This week, I've made some new desserts!

Strawberry lavendar slice cakes & some strawberry mousse cup desserts! Enjoy!! They are available at my etsy shop

    These remind me of summer afternoons

  4. Unbelievable, you are so talented and must have alot of patience. My fingers are to large to work that small. Love it.

  5. Do you ever get cravings for the life size versions of your creations? They look so lifelike. Beautiful as always..

  7. Mmmmm, those deserts just look so good and yummy. Pei Li, what a talented artist you are.


  8. Hi Pei Li,
    You are right, it is better when we know exactly when we have to clean the house, the desk area or everything else.
    The difference is that you work with so tiny tiny materials, your desk area have to be perfectly clean and tidy.
    Whenever you make new desserts, I fall in love with them, the mousse cups and the slice cakes are amazing ! Love them !
