I have to share my newest miniature. It was a custom order for an individual in Qatar who has a friend opening a similar cafe. I am really proud of myself and hope the recipient loves it too!
I am building a custom miniature for an individual in Qatar. They have asked me to make a cafe like the one in Seoul, Korea called The Greem Cafe. Also, last on the card is a progress photo I sent to them showing what I had done so far.

I didn’t actually end up using the floral patterned wall the floor stayed the same.
I found this challenge today and thought what fun! I love photography and art. Check it out here
So for my pictures, I am including a Mandala I finished, one I am working on, and one of my clay figures…
There was no reason I made a queen pig and it was ironic that it came out of the kiln the morning after Queen Elizabeth passed. Unfortunately, the crown did not come out gold as I had wished.
As most of you know I pride myself on my creations. I love making miniatures and have been for quite a while now. I just sold a dollhouse. The customer sent me pictures and it was nearly destroyed in the mail. I had insurance and will file a claim, however, I leave a note in all my orders to please save the box and take tons of pictures if there are damages because that is what I need to make the claim. The thing that upsets me the most is that this customer accused me of sending an “old” dollhouse that was in poor condition. She said it had old, warped wood. To see my creation in so many broken parts breaks my heart but to then be told it looks like it is old! Well, I was polite in my response but now I do think she will leave a bad review. Funny part is, I don’t make much money on these, I do it mostly for the hobby part!
On a positive note I made this adorable trinket bowl:
Linda G Hill is the host of Stream of Consciousness Saturday. (I think that is the first time I wrote Consciousness without misspelling it!) Anyhow, find it here: https://lindaghill.com/2022/04/29/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-april-30-2022/
Your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “zip, zero, zilch.”
At first I am thinking I have zero motivation to put stuff away, now that the kitchen is near completion, but I am quite motivated. Then I’m thinking I have zero energy, also not true. The truth is, I would rather be here, blogging, and then crafting, I am now doing some pottery at home. I brought some clay home to do some hand-building. I am having a ball doing little figures. My last one, a frog holding a drop of water, came out really good!
Hosted by Linda this is an activity without a theme; more of like a feeling you woke up with today.
My One-Liner for today is:
For me making miniatures is not only creative it is therapy.
I love to draw and go between Mandalas, Zentangles, and hands…yes, for some reason I like to draw fingers and hands.
