Valentines, my favorites and a HUGE To-do list due

 Hello again everyone!! Always happy to come and find you here! I actually have a couple of new followers so I definitely want to Welcome them. Hello and Thank you for joining in. It's a good time to be a follower of mine...
 So recently I've been piddling around, for days and days it seems, beginning several projects at once and finishing only one or two, here and there. I swear, my talent lies within  the organizing  of ideas, tools and inspiration that together create the miniature pieces, never-mind actually  making any of them!. Lol! Speaking of inspiration..many of you have been starting new Facebook pages and Etsy shops and I too jumped on a small bandwagon today..No, my Etsy is not yet a reality but my new Business Page on Facebook is:  Tah Dah!
I know it's not a MAJOR,HUGE, GIGANTIC feat but I'm happy with my progress, (today I am anyways..) So please come LIKE my page and keep up with me on the regular. Personal contact with all of y'all really keeps me motivated and is super important to me so I can connect with everyone even in just a small way.
 Well enough chat for now.. shall we get on with the show? All right. Without further adieu:

 I know Christmas is way over but I just have to show you a couple of the last photos I have before I get to the new stuff. Here are a few Xmas tree cakes I made:

Gotta love PINK with CUPCAKES; my two favorite things!

Sweet sugary icing covering a Brownie Crunch Christmas Cake.

I've always wanted a pure white Xmas tree..*sigh.

More Cupcakes, this time with BOWS! My third favorite thing!

Remember that cake box and palette from last post? It created light and fluffy RED VELVET CAKE! My fourth favorite thing!!! (Okay this is getting silly, but it's true! ^^)

My beautiful and delicate, 'wooden' cake stand holding my Valentines Day Cake prototype.

All right I think I mustI have a NEW and FINISHED piece around here somewhere don't I?... Oh yes..voila! My Mug Rack. I made this gorgeous shabby piece to match in my 'Dream-Kitchen' project but I know a little mouse who just HAD to have it for her I relented. What the Hell..I can always make another and she cannot. That damned mouse is the same one who made off with my DK's Spice Rack as well! Of course it's actually, really, very, very nice, to have a regular, repeat customer who adores my pieces..I mean really. Please let's all wish Sharon M a wonderful HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!  

Need more Knick knacks!!!!

I came across these darling little shirts on and I HAD to make some. I again just mixed and matched the few odd pieces of material that I have but I made do for sure.. Many more up my sleeve..wait till you see the feminine ones to be made...ADORABLE!!!

(Yes, I realized with these 3D digital freaking photos that the collars need a button. Whoops. Thank you.)

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to have my first Custom Order..This is the Strawberry/Coconut Cake included in it. I honestly think it is the best I've done so far, after almost 18 months of learning and trying. Super proud. (C'mon y'all..if you don't recognize and respect your own achievements, who will??)

The rose is absolutely perfect and this cake just looks so incredibly moist and fragrant; the coconut so light and crisp. The browned cake bits make my tummy growl! And to think I almost trashed the cake layers because the appeared a tad too orange too me at first. Now I see it's the perfect shade for strawberry sponge cake. (Or maybe pink lemonade?? YUM.)

So then all I have got left this week I think, is projects in the works..Pardon? Y'all wanna see those too? Well. All right... Let's see.. next piece:  Barbie size 1:6 scale UGGS. Check out the awesome materials Pat M brought me (again). I'd have so little without her:

Leathers', suedes', snake skin replica and the soft ivory fabric is super thin shearling material that is  simply 'to die for!'  PERFECT! YaY! Thanks again are always so thoughtful and considerate of me. I am so glad we are friends! 

Then.. I need to finish Rowan V. Draccos' love-seat because the poor girl has NO furniture. Not a chair or even a blanket to sit on. NADA. Need to start collecting for her asap! So many Barbie items to be had!  Now.. the question is: Do we go a bright, bold, fresh Fuschia Pink, or a crisp, clean, wheat colored Egyptian cotton weave. Each is so appealing and the pillows for both are divine! What to do?! Decisions, decisions!! :)

As if  all that isn't enough..I also started this Robin Betterley's Secret Book. Never made this scale (1;48 maybe?) before. Of course I promptly busted the chair, which threw it all out of alignment. Now the legs are glued on upside down so that they will still  fit. Gotta love improvisation as a miniaturists tool... I really, really..really love the Coop and the Armoire:

Some of you may have seen my stand alone Pantry. I sold it a few months ago but accidently included this Shaker basket in the bag of accessories. I was really upset because I received this little basket straight from Kim Saulter (my idol) as a gift with the pie and mugs I ordered; so it means a lot to me. Thankfully Pat understood and agreed to let me have the basket back once I offered to make her her own Shaker basket.

So I have managed to shape the wood somewhat and I'm hoping they will turn out nice...they should, the shape looks pretty good...

I also plan on making several of these darling little turtlenecks as I have a trade coming up and it's with a Mini- GUY-friend. I know..rare right. Well I don't know what to make for him but these sweaters, the shirts  and a couple of nice Geographical Art Prints are a start. This will be my second trade and I' really looking forward to it. Check out my last post to see my first trade gift items.

So I guess that's about all for now..Oh! Except for one last thing..Valentines Day is coming up..Thought I would make some Valentine-Pin-up-girl-Cake-boxes. Here's one of them:

I also made milk chocolate chocolate covered strawberries and whipped cream..

White chocolate covered berries on a stick..

..and a few sugar cookies and fruit.

And by the time I had finished  I had decided that my 125th follower will receive a free Cake and Box!! 

There are even different ones y'all can choose from!!  Just because each of you mean so very much to me!! Good Luck being #125! Thanks for stopping in today.. please do not be a stranger! Your comments, messages and feedback are most welcome. My mini-friends are so incredibly special, I am grateful to be a part of this community!  

Off to watch my new guilty pleasure, televisions "NASHVILLE" and to inhale oodles of Yogen Fruz frozen yogurt (also my FAV! ;P)..
Good night, sleep well... Mini hugs and BIG BIG love till next time!!  xoxo

  1. Wow, Natasha! You've made so many gorgeous things in a short amount of time! Great job on everything! My favorites are pink and cupcakes too! :-) That strawberry coconut cake looks heavenly. It's got a fun homemade vintage look to it that I love! Thanks for sharing all of your fun with us. I always look forward to your posts and seeing your next creations. xo Jennifer

    1. Thank you so much Jennifer! Still so very, very much to do! And I always seem to be doing everything except the job that is supposed to be finished. I really need some serious dicipline if I ever hope to do a show or (praying and hoping) I get super busy with orders..(knock on wood).I am so flattered to be enjoyed by someone I admire so! You'll be extremely happy to know your little cake is now next on my list and should be on it's way to you by some time next week! Take care of you love! Talk soon..Hugs!xo

    2. Oh, how exciting, Natasha! You're such a doll! I look forward to seeing your precious cake and showing it off on my blog. You are so talented!

      I'm so glad that you're working toward putting up an Etsy shop. That's where I go to dream and buy, and I'd love to have your gorgeous works in front of me to drool over and purchase. Happy weekend! xo Jennifer

  2. So many interesting and different things you've done. Your cake with pink crem is so delicious. Your wooden basket is also very adorable. Great made​​.


    1. Happy Sunday Wyrna! Thank you so much for keeping up with my posts. You are always so encouraging. I really appreciate that. Now GO do something FUN right now!! Till next time darling..Mini hugs! xo

  3. Hey Natasha,
    I am going to be in the North End tomorrow afternoon, pretty much driving straight by your place, I have to pick up some lye ( to make soap) at the beauty supply place where I order stuff for my bath and body stuff. I also figure I will swing by Michaels and get some printie sealant (I'm printing off several pages of printies a day know, nail polish doesn't cut it anymore :P, and a new nail file, some beads maybe. Wanna come. I don't have your home phone?
    I have a whole whack of errands to run tomorrow. I will start off by running some in the south side. If I don't hear from you tomorrow, I guess we'll do it another time!

    1. Hey you! How have you been Ruth? Good to see you on my page. Thanks for the Micheal's offer; normally I ALWAYS wanna go there but I'm strapped till Monday morning and I DETEST window shopping. Although if you want to just go to Timmy's for a coffee or have a quick visit here I'd love to see you. Message me on FB (my private name) and I'll give you my number okay Sweets? TTYS. Stay WARM!!!! Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr... Hugs xo

    2. I don't have a personal facebook account anymore per say. It's just a dummy personal account to manage my business page for my beauty products that I sell. I did message you on your Eat Cake Miniatures FB Page and that message is totally private (No one can see it but us, and I left my cell phone in that message, I'll look up your personal account and if it allows anyone to message you I'll message you there and I can come by for a quick visit. I'll bring some of my minis over to show you. Mini show and tell!

Really would love to have a boo at your houses progress as inspiration might strike that way..but I'll be patient. And yes Dear please get to work (BTW..loved your tiny turtles chocolates featured in your last post..too freaking cute!!)!
