In this blog you will find my projects, collections, miniatures and free printables. Designing on the computer is my passion and I'm so fortunate to share my designs through my online businesses of miniatures and digital downloads. I've been making and designing miniatures for over 30 yrs and my wonderful husband John helps with the business too.

I've been really enjoying designing these laser cut doily kits, you can see the teapots and cups and bunnies in the upper kits running around the outside of the doilies. The upper 5 doilies and Pewter Shelf kits will be a special Roundtable price for the show. Quarter scale doily kits will be only $2.50 CAD during the show and available at the regular prices after the show. My prices are always in Canadian funds which is quite a savings to those in the US and other countries. Thank you so much for viewing my blog. Mini Hugs, Jean
I am very happy to announce that the new, free AIM magazine is now available to read or download. I just love Bea Broadwood’s Dickinson village featured called Cobblestone Snicket and Pearl Hudson’s Christmas traditions and so much more. AIM’s editor Sally Watson and team did such a terrific job even though it is such a busy time. ❤️ http://www.artisansinminiature.com
Also included above are my printable contributions for the AIM magazine Dec.issue and earlier in the year for the Knots and Cordage page.
Have a terrific Holiday Season with wonderful mini dreams of future projects! Mini Hugs, Jean

I've been having a great time designing new paper lace doilies with Halloween themes as you can see from the photos. I especially enjoyed making the cats designs, if you look closely you can see the tiny cats running around the doilies. There are also leaves. I have also designed many bird doilies in paper I will have in Etsy soon.
The top photo shows a few of my lace collars and cuffs I offer on our website. I wanted to design a setting similar to a shop window to display some of the cotton laser cut lace designs before I put them up on Etsy.
The new Halloween Themed AIM magazine is now available. It is so fantastic with some many miniature ideas and projects. You can read it for free here, just click through the links. http://artisansinminiature.com/ I have included my free printable page for the magazine, just right click on the image to save and print it on your computer if you like. I created this page using my collection of vintage Halloween memorabilia. Have a wonderful Hallow's Eve!!
Where did the summer go! I just realized I didn't blog in July or August!! I hope you all had wonderful summers or winters depending on where you live.
We were away for a couple of weeks up in Parksville on Vancouver Island and that was fantastic, such beautiful weather.
Redecorating with new floors, furniture and now counter tops in the kitchen took a bit of time moving everything. I love our new linen look so much! We enjoyed our season's pass to Butchart Gardens and went for picnic lunches about 12 times, so gorgeous and good for the soul. We are so lucky to live so close. I kept working and designing in between so I guess that is where the summer went!! I do love Autumn!
Above you can see 2 new quarter scale laser cut Reading Nook kits I will be selling soon on Etsy and our website, need directions though. They were so much fun, love choosing trims from my vintage stash and printing the silk with designs.
I'm showing the photo above from 46 years ago when John and I were married. It also shows my folks and John's. We just celebrated our 46 anniversary Sunday. We had a lovely dinner and movie. We went to Mama Mia Here We Go Again. I loved it so much, the music is extraordinary.
New Album shown ab ove has just been released by my son Tony Day and Daughter in Love, Gerogia Murray aka LIINKS. It is so exciting and soulful!! It is called Ridge Road and can be listened to on so many music hosting site such as Spotify and other places. You can buy it on iTunes too. We are so proud of them. Georgia is such a fabulous singer and Tony does the music and is a producer. They write music for Universal Music Publishing Group.
Well, that is it for today. Oh, yesterday I started making laser cut roses and had a great time. Mini Hugs, Jean
