Thinking small

I have been busy.  I wanted to get these finished so that the house isn't a mess. I am in a couple bigger swaps and a couple little ones.  I made many of each item.  Not sure what will be for what swap.


Button flowers in those tiny pots.  Only problem they are a little unbalanced . I will have to come up with some kind of bottom.  Any ideas?
This is a little wall hanger pocket.  That may be a little burn from hot glue.
 
 
There are two kinds of bunnies.  This one I made from a mold and using Filo.  I tried paper clay and I didn't like how that turned out.  Maybe it was a little dried up, I don't know.  I liked working with this.  It's not yellow like it looks.  This white had a little glitter in it.  I bought the other bunnies at Hobby Lobby.  
Now decisions, decisions.
 
 
And we celebrated Goose's 9th birthday.  She is the first of the 3 eight year olds to turn 9.  She is so excited. 
I hope everyone had a nice week-end.  We actually had sun and near 50 degrees today.  Will the snow every melt...........

Oh those little pots are so sweet. Maybe a flat brown button on the bottom to add weight. Then it would look like dirt? Just a thought!

Very cute Debby! Maybe a penny glued to the bottom of the pot? I just added an old poker chip to a little basket to make it stand up and it worked.

Sweet girl, she looks so happy and her cake looks yummy.

Love that precious grand photo!! I'm just loving all your miniatures. It's hard making things that small. I've been working on some special miniature Easter goodies for Patti (we're partners in Viv's swap). Warm hugs!

It looks like you have been super busy having fun creating miniatures and celebrating Goose's birthday.

Happy Birthday Goose. How fast she is growing.

In your post you said that you made the bunny from a mold, with filo, did you mean FIMO ? Those mold must be tiny. I'd be crossed eyes working on those but I would love to try if ever I had time. You're doing a great job.

Hugs,
JB

Happy Birthday to Goose! She is so cute!
You make the cutest "little" things, Debbie. It is hard to work with that small stuff-and takes a special touch to do it.
Hope you had a great Monday. xo Diana

Arlene Grimm said...

Love your little goodies Debby!! I was thinking maybe a weight on the bottom of the pots. Happy Birthday to Goose!!

E said...

The minis turned out so cute ! That cake looks yummy hard to believe she is 9! Glad its warming up for you guys ! Would a small washer on the bottom of the pot add weight without making the pot wobbly? XO E
