First ever prep table!

A while ago I bought myself a plain, unfinished, wooden table, with the aim of making a preparation scene in 12th scale sometime soon. That some time soon ended up months and months later!

Why did I pick banoffee pie in as my food? Partly because I haven't spotted any other banoffee pie prep tables on the internet, but mainly because I made a really cute peeled banana a couple of weeks ago, and really wanted to use it for something!

The completed 12th scale banoffee pie prep table!


Mmm banoffee pie! And a little broken egg, the little things are my favourite parts.
And that infamous peeled banana. This took me ages to make, and then I went and stuck it down so you can't even see half the detail of the peel! Never mind!
I hope you like it. Assuming I get my act together, I'll be listing it in my Etsy shop this week.

Featured Seller: Dales Dreams

This month I am featuring the works of fellow miniaturist Dale of DalesDreams'. Dale specialises in just about anything miniature in need of a needle and thread. I am in great awe of that because I struggle to know which end of a needle to hold, let alone create anything of skill or beauty from it. Here are a few examples of her lovely stuff!

Tri Panel Screen

Monogramed PillowRed, White and Blue Pillows

You can check out more of her Dale's lovely offerings at www.dalesdreams.etsy.com. Enjoy!

Lots of cute fruit canes!

I was featured in Kiirey's blog, alongside a few other miniaturists, on an item about fruit canes.

Thanks very much! It's a super cute selection of fruit cane pieces. Makes me want to go and try my hand at lemon canes next (my strawberries are still atrocious lol).

Cheerio, A-M

I love candy!

I love making candy, partly because it always looks so cute, but partly because I don't have to think too much about it. You can be a little more creative with colours than you can with fruit and vegetables without it looking wrong.
This little set, as well as a few other assortments of candy and chocolate, is available at my Etsy shop now. My favourite part to do is the liquorice allsorts, because you get lots of instant gratification when you cut up those tiny little squares!

Cupcakes! Om nom nom...

I've moved on from cheescakes, now I'm obssessed with cupcakes!





I don't know how to make owls or cowls or mustaches or whichever odd thing Etsy is currently fixated upon, but cupcakes I can do! Available here at www.littletimewasters.etsy.com. Yum yum yum.
