Autumn Harvest Wreath in Watercolour and AIM magazine


I wrote these pages for the last Artisan in Miniature magazine AIM, that was to be available in November and sent them to our fabulous Editor Sally Watson. Shortly after I sent these pages and a few photos for the gallery Sally passed away. So sad for her family and friends. I was shocked and devastated. She did so much of the magazine herself and with the help of the editorial team but she rallied everyone to get motivated and it really worked for me. I had stepped down from formatting the magazine which I enjoyed for years because of my essential tremor in my hands. I will miss Sally's incredible sense of humour and determined personality so much!! We have not heard yet if AIM magazine will continue.

If you are working on this project and would like some inspiration  for wreaths, I have created a Board in my Pinterest called Wreath Inspiration of ideas. https://www.pinterest.ca/jdayminis/

I'm sorry I didn't have this blog sooner to mention Shelly's Wonders in Miniature Show sooner. https://thenovembershow.weebly.com/
It started free online today and will last until Nov.5. I'm offering 5 roundtables at introductory prices at the show. The Quarter Scale Autumn Wreaths kit (there is a tutorial about painting it in my tutorial blog http://jdayministutorials.blogspot.com/ ), French Dahlia kits in 2 scales and Pumpkin Patch paper doily kit in 2 scales. The other 2 projects are available in my Etsy shop and are digital downloads for you to make the projects shown either with the elements or without.

Summer break, Miniature Shows in Vancouver B.C.,Edmonton Alberta and online



Hi Everyone,

I wanted to share these 2 wonderful miniature shows with you. If you are in either of these areas, I hope you will go and see them!! Shelly's great Mini Minature Show is in August but unfortunately I won't be able to do it this time. Here is the link https://aminiminiatureshow.weebly.com/

My website and Etsy are closed for a while for holidays. I want to enjoy the sea and perhaps get some more digital downloads and other miniature designs available for my Etsy shop when I open again and catch up with making stock. Lately I have been enjoying a few terrific Photo Shop videos through Design Cuts to learn more about the program, I love learning new techniques in Photo Shop so much!! I also have a few medical issues and I'm excited about an upcoming operation for my Hyperparathyroidism to fix a few of my problems.

I hope you all have a fabulous summer or winter depending on where you live and take the time to enjoy life to the fullest..

Mini Hugs, Jean.

The Online Mini Miniature Show Mar.1, 2019 for early birds. New Spring Doilies and Kits.








Here is a link to Shelly's online Mini Miniature Show starting for early birds March 1 and to the public on March 2, 2019. I hope to see you there.
https://aminiminiatureshow.weebly.com/ 

Click on the links at the top of the page to get into the show.

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.

Happy Halloween! Free Halloween Printables, Laser Lace






Happy Halloween everyone who celebrates!

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!!
