In case you are wondering where I have been hiding, I have recently been delighted to be asked to be part of the editorial team of AIM, Artisans in Miniature, magazine. I've had a wonderful time helping to format many of the articles with Vickie Guile's
suggestions and excellent advise. John is involved with the team now as well. I'm so sorry I haven't had time, because of our mini business, formatting and minis, to keep up with viewing your blogs. This week I hope to get around to seeing many of your new additions to your blogs, it is always a delight and pleasure.
Bea says in her August editorial column about the new AIM magazine:
"AIM members have been busy over the summer, working hard to fill an unbelievable 145 pages with fabulous miniature content for you all to enjoy ‐ for FREE!
Now, fresh back after their summer break AIM members have taken a closer look at the ‘humble shop’ . So if you want to find out more about the talented house builder Malcolm Smith and his doll sculpting partner Silvia Lane, gaze at the stunning hardware shop brought to life by Catherine Davies or let Vicky Guile teach you how to make your very own traditional basket (in miniature of course); then look no
As you will see this August issue of the magazine is packed from cover to cover with interesting features, profiles, editorials and projects; covering every aspect of the dolls house hobby. What more could you wish for!?"

I've featured my Chubby Cheek Toy Shop, Janet's Smith's scrumptious Shabby Chic Chocolate Shop and Bea Broadwood's two fabulous quarter scale shop kits. I have included a free printable of quarter scale toys and books in the magazine that you can print or download.
