Show and Tell Monday ~ 1:12 Scale Dollhouse Miniatures Blueberry Mousse Cups

Last week, I blogged about the strawberry mousse cups, and this week, I completed making these blueberry mousse cups. I push myself further and manage to make 4 layers in these small tiny cups. I love how the dark purple blueberry puree contrast with the mousse cream. :)

On the top, I decorate it with white chocolate and berry stripe decoration, a raspberry and blueberries.

I'll come up with more flavours as I get more ideas :)

Playing Santarina

I made a little sale on Monday, but guess where I spent the money immediately?

I chanced upon the MakeMinePink Angel Family 2009 project, and saw there were still empty spots for donation items.

Each year MMP holds an Angel Family drive to make Christmas special for others in need. Last year we out did ourselves! It was magical and heartwarming. We helped quite a few people enjoy Christmas.

So basically there are a few families that need help and the members of the families would have a list of needs/wants. You pick what you are able to donate/giveaway.

I picked to buy some makeup for a 16 year old teenage girl. I didn't feel confident to get items like clothes or shoes as the sizes here would be very different, so I picked a category that I was confident instead. I wrote Joyce an email immediately, she gave the go ahead and off I went getting the items during lunch hour. :D I managed to get a cheek blusher, nail polish, eye shadow quad and a duo wand lipgloss. :) It was the first time I'm shopping cosmetics for a teenager but it was really fun. I reminded myself to pick sweet colours, colours that young girls would adore.

I didn't manage to take a photo as I was in a hurry to put it in the mail!! I hope it gets there safely!

Show and Tell Monday ~ 1:12 Scale Dessert Mousse Cups

I had a productive weekend. I skipped a week's class and stayed home to complete some outstanding tasks, as well as run some errands nearby. I also had the chance to experiment on dollhouse miniature scale dessert mousse cups. I have been obssessed about them again lately, and started making them in different flavours. One of the challenges I face was, how do I do multiple layers within 1.2cm? How do you decorate the top when the width of the top of the cup is only about 0.6cm? I start from the bottom layer, let it dry, before I attempt the 2nd layer. It's time consuming, and you have to be patient. There were several occasions where I didn't like the first layer, and I remove it before I restart all over again.

These are the latest mousse cup desserts I've made. I'm currently making blueberry ones (another experimental breakthrough). More pictures, hopefully next week when I complete them!

It's hard to tell from the photos, but these cups are really only 1.4cm tall.

Show and Tell ~ Christmas Papertole

I did mention about papertole craft several weeks ago. Never did I realized it was quite a challenging and tedious craft. Actually I do find it more difficult than miniature making in a way. The difficulty comes in precision cutting, gluing, and everything needs to be neat. Also the difficulty comes in knowing what to cut, where to cut, how to glue it, how high and at what angle to glue it. There is still a lot to learn for me.

I finished my first papertole project and it has been framed up beautifully. I love how it looks!

This took quite a long time to complete, as you can see, different medium were used besides the original papertole design. Dried flowers, moss, beads, glitter, cotton wool were used in this piece.
Here's the completed project.

I'm currently still working on my 2nd piece, which I will show it when I am finished. :)
