I heart my mini club

I grew up in Massachusetts and have since lived in several states - brief stints in OK and ME, and 15 years in the PA snowbelt (brrr! goodbye snow shovel!)  I have been in the south nearly seven years now - last week marked the two year anniversary of living in NC.  This is the first time ever I have lived in an area that has miniature clubs close by.  I am a member of the Small Wonders Miniature Club of Cary, NC. We are a group of collectors and handcrafters who meet monthly.  We are a N.A.M.E. Blue Ribbon club and have lots of fun. Besides meeting great people, I have also met many talented people with deep roots in the miniatures world.

Last evening Sydnie Wagner again shared her amazing talents and knowledge with us. She provided all the materials for us to create mini bed sheets and pillowcase sets. There was a great selection of materials to chose from. Please excuse my poor photography skills.

I joked that I might create a mini Bed Bath & Beyond and next thing I knew, I was the recipient of 10 additional sheet kits so I may very well do so!  I am thinking of calling it "Dreams, Bubbles and More" ha ha.  In any case, the shampoo/conditioner sets I have recently created will work in the same setting!

Once I figured out how to prop these up, I've made quite a few in different colors.
I'm still plodding along with my kitchen room box. I have created some canned goods for the kitchen pantry, the cabinet is finished and awaits some goodies on its' shelves.
It's hard when real life keeps you so busy and you can't find any time for the fun stuff.  I do love creating my minis.  I've heard there is a mini shop in Mocksville NC - sadly, I still don't have the funds to bring that dream to fruition.
For my American friends, have a safe and happy 4th of July!  We're hoping the weather here allows us a bit of relaxation at the lake.  For my Canadian friends, a belated happy Canada day!
