Maryann drew my attention to a recent article in the Guardian. Excellent read! Simon Garfield explains miniaturists in a nutshell; I understand myself so much better now. Follow the link if you would like to know why miniatures are big.

Yes, I'm still alive. Life is a bit surrealistic at present but I smell cinnamon and pine needles and a holiday break on the breeze. Let's chat soon.

  4. Thank you Megan for the link. It was interesting and fun reading the article. I was always attracted to miniatures never imagining that I'll end up making them. Found the reason here.

  5. Hi Megan! Glad t see you pop up if only for a moment! Hope all is going smoothly with the new job and the baby tarantulas! I bookmarked the article to read this weekend when I'll have the mind to concentrate. It would be nice to know a boiled down reason why miniatures fill me with so much joy!

  7. This was a great read. I wish I had recognized my interest in miniatures sooner so I could have a thriving career in it now! I love that the article mentions the very common desire to exert total control over miniatures as a way of feeling like our own lives and environments are under control, too. Same reason games like The Sims remain popular.
