Pancakes with Berries and Giveaway

Recently I was talking with another Etsy seller and she said something that made me reflect about making dollhouse miniatures. She said that selling on Etsy is not her main activity (just a hobby) so she has to feel happy with this. She's so right. I think it's important to feel happy about what you are doing, be it work or hobby. I need to constantly remind myself about this and think about where my life is heading.

Here are some photos of the miniature pancake stack with fresh berries. Hope you like them. 

Keep scrolling down ... the giveaway is at the bottom of this post.

Recently I gave away two molds (one to make miniature donuts and one to make popsicles) on my Instagram. I like to giveaway craft supplies on Instagram because there are many fellow crafters there and they would certainly have a use for these things. On the other hand, I like to giveaway my creations on this blog. This is THE place where I first started my dollhouse miniature showcase in 2008. (I'm such an old miniaturist!)   

So here is the prize - a set of hotdog with fries, coke and chilli/ketchup dip. All you need to do is to guess a number between 1 and 31. If the number coincides with the day of my birth date, you are the winner! Just leave a comment and indicate the number you selected. I need time to approve the comments so don't worry if your comment doesn't immediately appear on my blog. The closing date is 30th November. Have fun and good luck!

Chocolate Cake Preparation Board

I made a chocolate ganache cake preparation board recently and I couldn't decide between rose petals and fruit toppings so I ended up doing both. It seems the rose petal cake is more popular. Which one do you prefer? In case you can't tell, it's a yellow macaron on the fruit version.

I'm such a procrastinator too. I haven't had the chance to organize the giveaway but rest assured I am already gathering some craft supplies and working on a handmade miniature food item. I did take a few pictures but they turned out crappy. I want to make the prize attractive as well as think of a creative game to play. Please give me a little more time to prepare.

Here are the photos of the prep board. Hope you like them. :D
