I plan to sit here at my computer today, Blogging, searching for ideas on Pinterest and making Minis.
So a while back I posted about the yearly I was making for one of my yahoo groups. Since everyone should have received theirs by now, I can finally post a picture of the final product.
I decided to make everyone an umbrella (non-working), and a clutch purse. The umbrella is not an original idea....I saw someone post a tutorial online, so while I didn't create the idea, I did create all the umbrellas. It wasn't as easy as the tutorial made it look but I am very happy with the final outcome. I did a few colours. Neutral ones like Black, Brown and Grey and I made clutches to coordinate with the umbrellas. The first couple of purses were not going together as nicely and easily as I had hoped. So I changed it half way through. The picture below is what most of the swappers got.....a few people got a different looking clutch but I don't have a picture of that.

Can you believe what you can make with a thin piece of wire, a piece or origami paper, a few beads, a part used for a cell phone charm and an eyelet?
I would never have thought that.....and while I forget where I saw the original creation.....all credit goes to that very talented miniaturist. Nice job.
I've never had a good eye for turning nothing into something....or what we like to call "Trash to Treasures".
Well I do hope that everyone that received this package likes it and has a use for it in their dollhouse or a miniature scene.
