Peanut Butter Jam Sandwich

PBJ stands for Peanut Butter Jam or Peanut Butter Jelly? In any case, I've not tried the popular PBJ sandwich cos I don't like jam. I can't imagine the two together except in miniature form... maybe not.

Here is the PBJ set. See what I mean? I still didn't stick the two slices of bread together. I'll leave it to the dolls while I treat this as PBJ sandwich preparation in progress. Afterall, I wanted to show the fluffy texture of the bread slices as well as the texture of the peanut butter & jam.

And here is a kid's breakfast set since I had some extra smiley potatoes. All items are now available at my Etsy shop.

I've got to slow down on my minis now. My baby keeps kicking me when I'm sitting down or when I'm sleeping. This explains why I'm updating my blog at 5.45 A.M. I'll try to catch some sleep now. ^_^

Tiny Popsicles

Popsicles! Perfect for a hot summer.

I love how these popsicles turned out, especially the rainbow ones. However, the tiny rainbow popsicles are extremely difficult to make. Maybe it is easier with polymer clay. With air dry clay, I had to painstakingly mix each colour with the clay and sometimes the shade just doesn't look right - either too dark or too pastel. Actually there is purple too but if I add the purple portion, the popsicles become too elongated. So please don't ask me why there are only 5 colors. In fact, these take so much effort that I don't know how to price them for sale.

The neapolitan ones are easier since there are only 3 layers. However, I made a mistake of glossing them as they don't look so realistic now. On the other hand, they look a tad unpolished if they weren't glossed. I hereby announce the neapolitan popsicles a non-success, but I can sell them cheaply to anyone interested. Just drop me an email:

I just listed some items in my Etsy shop. Do pop in and have a look.

Fruity Cupcakes

I've been missing in action for about 2 weeks as I was so busy with work. It's a nightmare struggling with tons of excel sheets at 3am in the morning.

Though I'm less busy now, I find myself not being able to work on minis as much. Why? My pregnant tummy is getting in the way between the table and myself!! I find it hard to bend over to do texturing. I got to do it slowly, taking regular breaks in between. It doesn't help that I'm using air dry clay because once you start, you can't stop! I console myself that I work with 1:12 scale and not anything bigger.

Finally have time to feature these fruity cupcakes that I made. I love colorful things. They make me feel happy. Hope you like these photos and if you like the cupcakes, they are available at my Etsy shop.
