Bits and Pieces

So many things are happening this week.

First I would like to thanks both Jayne at Tallulah~Belle Originals and Betty at Live Mini! Somehow I managed to win both of their wonderful contests. I'm so happy right now. The Cheerful Fairy has nothing on me. ;-) Thank you again, ladies!

Last night was the June meeting for the local miniature group. Our group has gotten so small we met at one member's home. Our hostess had prepared some kits for jewelry boards out of card and the "velvet" off of the little boards that real earrings are attached to in the store.My "chains" are a little lopsided, but I think they're cute for first tries. No clue where they will go yet. The jewelry bits are made from micro holeless beads and those shiny iron-on transfers for clothes.

The new wallpaper I ordered arrived.

This is what I'm going to use in the Big Dollhouse's kitchen.
This is for the girl's nursery.
Love the baby bunnies! :-)

The next bits of news is I was chatting with The Mini Maker the other night and we were both wondering how many of our fellow bloggers would be interested in starting a swap circle of some sort? Please let one or both of us know what you think.

That's all for now. I'm going to go enjoy the day. I hop you all do the same. :-)

Oh, those wallpapers are gorgeous!

The self-adhesive little jewels for nails would work, too. You can get a whole set at Dollar Tree for a buck.

What great ideas and timed well for I'm doing the grown up daughters room, I like the nail art idea.
I would love to join a swap club, I am in UK if you will have me.

Those wall papers are plain amazing! Such amazing detail. As for the swap, I am afraid I am too far away too and postage will be hell for you guys !

I'd love a swap & I'm in Canada!

Because our items are so little weight, postage is generally not too expensive; the items can be sent tracked; and the best reason of all, each swap is like another Christmas!

Hi Kat:
Your jewelry is very nice! Making necklaces is something I really have fun with.
And the bunny wallpaper is adorable, I don't know what it is about bunnies, they're just so pretty!
I would love to participate in a swap circle, I'm also in Canada.
