Gerbera Daisy Necklace

I've been toying the idea of turning my gerbera daisies into a wearable necklace, and finally did it! I'm so happy. I wanted to keep the concept of a pot of gerbera daisies, because almost other items I've seen around in the market features only a single stalk daisy. I wanted to offer something different. Besides, having a pot means MORE flowers to look at. So, that's how my idea came about. :)

This would make a perfect gift for pretty much all occasions, or for anyone who loves gerbera daisies.

In fact, I think I would like to try turning more of my miniature flowers into wearables next year. That's a pretty good goal, I think! :)

How is everyone preparing or gearing up for Christmas? Am I the only one who really isn't doing much, besides maybe doing a little deep cleaning, cross stitching (yes!!!), and working out new workshop content for next year? Those are in my plans. I hope to stick to them :)

Quiet times during the holiday season is the best time to work. It works well for me, and it has been this way for years now. I know it sounds weird and crazy! But I've always been doing exactly the opposite of what most people do all these years. Work when the rest are relaxing, and relaxing when others are working.

So, I'll still be making trips to the post office during the holidays! My store will still be opened, and am still accepting orders and custom orders.

Also, for a limited time period only - TILL 31 December 2016, I will be offering a Buy 2 Get 1 FREE UV Resin Colors Offer.
Simply go to my etsy store here to purchase.

I'm sure I'll still be blogging sometime during the if you're like me, with no where to go, and not doing really anything special, you're not alone. :)

Playmobil Doll With My Macaron Tower

My aunt collects Playmobil dolls. Sometime ago, she passed me some baker dolls for photo taking with my miniatures. Finally I got around to it. For some reason, I thought they were Lego dolls. That goes to show how much I know about dolls..:p

According to Wikipedia, Playmobil dolls are 1:24 scale dolls. Perfect! I've always wanted to make some 1:24 scale items, so maybe this will be a great visual guide for me!

I got her to pose with my macaron tower. It fits nicely into the tray! :)

I think, in reality, there are some items that belongs to the 1:12 scale that may fit with this.

I also had this male baker to pose with my metal whisk. It would not fit nicely in his hand grip, so I turned his hand around so that the whisk stays.

Next, I would love to see how my bouquets fit the Playmobil dolls. When I was at my aunt's house yesterday, I did saw the plastic bouquets that came along with the dolls. I am quite sure the size of my miniature bouquets would fit after looking at those that came along with the dolls, but I'll take some photos really soon!

Have a beautiful week everyone!

UV Resin Colors

So, I've completed testing out the colors of the UV Resin Colors, and couldn't resist to line up all my fake candies together to take a photo!

No special reason...but just wanted to take a photo for future color reference purpose. :)

My mom saw these fake candies and her comment was, Wah...better not let children see these! They will put these into their mouth. I agree.

What's your weekend plan? I hope you have a great one...:)

UV Resin Colors

I'm experimenting some new UV Resin Colors. Just made some fake sweets with them, and they made me smile. The colors are so vibrant - I love it. Who can resist? My favorite is the Cyan. :)

I also documented the color, so you can see them clearly.

There are another 5 more colors that I have, which I will post soon. I just finished making them!

These are all new supplies, which are found in my shop here.

Miniature Green House

Just a few nights ago, I tried assembling this miniature green house kit. It wasn't scaled 1/12 but it didn't quite matter to me as I think I could still do something with it.

I love the window panes, it looked so pretty! I wanted to use this as a backdrop, so I purposely left one side open, so I could photography my miniatures with it.

The miniature green house actually also came with standing legs, but after seeing them, I decided not to glue them onto mine as the legs were too long, and it looked a little disproportionate to the green house. I like the current look.

I took a test shot of it with my cherries ganache cake. I liked how it looked :)
