Hey there! How are you doing today? I am doing good. We have had quite a busy month. Our granddaughter has had a bone marrow transplant at Rady's Childrens hospital in San Diego and we have been driving back and forth to wave at her from outside her window. With Covid we aren't able to visit, or hug her. But it has been worth it. Also our son and his two boys are across the street staying at the Ronald McDonald house. We take cookies, toys and treats down to them. It is a sweet time that we are grateful for. Grateful for recovery.
I have been home working feverishly on some new projects to keep myself busy. Because I am very seasonal theme oriented and project oriented I will work a few days and create 100 things and then take a break because grandkids are in the house...haha and there's not time to do anything then....happy chaos is what it is. I will be making little pumpkin pies using polymer clay, getting ready to bake some creations for my Etsy shop...and things will get knocked on the floor...accidentally, and someone will pick it up and hand it to me...they at least know to do that...but then it is smooshed...so we get done, and make real cookies and hot cocoa and enjoy the season of being little. Little kids.
I did manage to make a few things before anyone got up in the house. We have grandkids and kids staying with us while our granddaughter has been at the hospital for an extended stay. We were quarantining long before Covid hit because of the Leukemia and the nature of low immunity. So we wore masks before Covid just to keep her safe.
Here though I wanted to share a brief look at my new Fall Miniature Decorating Ebook for 2020. It’s available in my Etsy shop Ribbonwoodcottage.
I share a bunch of decorating pictures from several fall rooms I’ve decorated. Several were from projects that I sent in to American Miniaturist magazine.
Normally my ebooks sell for $9.99 and up depending on the number of pages and projects but this ebook is on sale from now to the end of November! You can purchase it for $2.99 !
Using chalks (brown, orange, rust, gold...) I brush lighter colored chalks onto the light clay pumpkin. I start with lighter colors and then go with darker on the top.
In the ebook - here are also projects for fall including kitchen decor and a little pumpkin quilt. I try to give a lot of ideas that are budget friendly for creating a table setting, or decorating a miniature kitchen without spending a fortune on little items.
I have so many ideas, I could write hundreds of books and never run out of ideas. This is why I am making these downloadable ebooks...that you can download to your device or tablet, print them out if you want. One gal had hers printed out at Staples which I thought was a great idea. I print mine out so I have a copy. But each season and each year I am creating new content, new little quilts, new kitchen items and fun miniatures...and there is so much someone said why don't you create decorating books for miniaturists. That is what I am doing. Hopefully these little projects inspire people that they can easily make a few little things and it becomes a project that is enjoyable.
Ebook is now on sale from $10.99 to $2.99! Fall Miniature Decorating Ebook
Every project is simple. If you can't sew, use fabric glue. I promise my projects are simple.
