spring is here to stay

Well I think spring is here to stay, and to commerate the green grass and the warm air I thought that Kevin and Olivia would like to try out their new soccer balls that I just bought them. So I was at Michaels this morning picking up some stuff for a cake and as I was looking around I found these really cute mini soccer balls. They are really mini erasers, but they are the perfect size for toys for my little people. Since they had the balls now they needed a net to play with. So that is what I did this evening. The net was really easy, it is just some small wooden dowels and paint and netting from the chocolate easter eggs that you buy in the store. If you are wondering on size the net is 5 inches in height, 6 inches in length and 2 inches in depth. once the frame was together and painted I sewd on the netting. Kevin and Olivia seem to love it.

The soccer balls cost me a $1.50 an each and the net can be easily changed to fit the size of your dolls, Kevin and Olivia stand almost 4 inches in height.

I love how it all turned out. If these two keep going I am going to have make them a supply of Gatorade.

new minis

Hi, just in case you are wondering I have not fallen off the planet, just been busy.

Anyway, my sister was up visiting from Toronto and brought me some new minis for my shop.  She bought me some more wooden bowls and glass jars that I fill with candy for the candy shop, she bought me a cash register, a bubble gum machine that sits on a counter, a mini ice cream scoop, a  bottle of dish soap, and some faucet pieces so I can finish grandmas sink.

The other day I was looking around on (I go there to look at her printable sites) and she had a new one listed. I found a mini printie of a box of kraft dinner, so I printed some and made a prep board for it.

Also I have joined a mini swap group on google. I made minis for three swaps that I have to mail out this week. So I can not show you what I made until I get mine back in the middle of may. I am so excited to be a part of this group. It is a great way to meet new people and make special little gifts for these people.


sorry for the fuzzy picture, my camera takes lousy photos, I think my kids have messed up a setting.

These are the minis that my sisiter bought me
