take a (miniature) seat

Hey everyone, I'm back with something that actually belongs on this blog 😉, but thank you so much for your wonderful and supportive comments on my last post, it means a lot! Because I needed something a bit straight forward for now I recently started a miniature chair I've wanted to make for years. After one I've had myself that I still love and although I plan to one day make one just like it, for now I'll make a green leather version.

Emerald Heart ~ cross-over creative venture

Hey guys, it's been quite a while, again..
..and I don't even have anything miniature-ish but something else I've been inspired to do, I published my first book! In paperback & ebook and I'll officially launch it on the 17th, but I really want to share it somewhere already ;). UPDATE: you can now read it for FREE in exchange for an honest review if you'd like, see the second imag.

flower-hour ;)

Hey there beautiful soul, how did you end up here? 😉 Some tiny flower-power (hence the little wordplay of the title) I borrowed from Mother Nature. As a prop to show a little something of what I haven't been able to finish yet, just as an excuse to have some fun shooting a couple of pics.

'ambition is a dream with a V8 engine' - Elvis Presley

a little engine-inspiration to title this post :D. So, it's time to let you know what I'm making with my not-so-V8-micro-engine ;). I actually gave a hint about it in the blogtitle of my previous post, 'blending crafts'. Now I've given away that hint it's probably not hard to guess anymore: it's a blender! And the photo might have given you some idea too ;).
the setup with the parts I have so far. At least it already looks like a blender ;)
I e-mailed Leo Reinders, a Dutch miniature glassblower (Arnhem fair), last year some photo's and measurements to make

blending crafts

hi there, thanks so much for stopping by. I thought it might be nice to get my ass back here a bit sooner than last time ;). For my newest project I needed help from another miniaturist, because it involves a glass part. I'm willing to try new things and make myself somehow figure out how to make something and the way I want, but attempting to blow a glass miniaturepart didn't seem like the best idea to begin with 😉 let alone being able to make it in a way that would be halfway decent. Sometimes you just need to ask a professional right? But I will try something new for it myself. Not nearly as impressive as blowing glass - or at all - but something I look forward to doing.

the micromotor at the top is what I'll use, the other one is the one I used for my fan

what this new project will be?
