...broken stemware, make a mini table. After a long and frustrating morning, I opened a cabinet to put something away and this heavy plastic wine glass fell out. Grrr. But then I saw how cleanly the base broke off and wondered how I could use it. (Because that's how we miniaturist people think, right?) I had purchased a package of trophy cups at Dollar Tree to use for urns in the new dollhouse and realized, after measuring, that it would work as a base for the "glass" topped table. I painted it to look like iron, glued the top on, and I have a lovely little table. Next up will be attempting to make "iron" chairs to go with it.
I've been happily married for 33 years to my high school sweetheart and we have three great kids. All are young adults. I'm currently working part time as an instructional assistant at the local elementary school. My mini life is especially important to me because it takes me away (better than a bubble bath!) from the stresses of real life. I've been involved with mini-ing since the late 1980s with a break for about 10 years while my children were young.
My faith and my family are very important to me. I am so thankful that God blessed me with the gift of creativity!
