Giveaway - Blog's 5th Birthday

Do you know I started this blog on 1st June 2008? I can't believe it's been 5 years! Although I don't have as much exposure as other miniaturists in Singapore (partly because I'm rather inactive due to my commitment as a stay home mum), I'm grateful for the support I got on this blog and at Etsy. Thank you!

I'll be having 2 giveaways to celebrate I Love Little Things 5th birthday.

This week, I will be giving away this adorable pair of Starbucks Frappucino earrings studs made by my best friend, Jowie. The earrings are made of printed images covered with a few layers of resin to create a domed effect. Note that you won't get 3D cups, just flatback earrings with a beautiful glass-like finish. We made this pair together for the giveaway. 

What do you need to do now to win this? Simple! Just like my Facebook page AND like this photo. Existing Facebook fans just need to like the photo. (My Facebook link is on the right of this post) Last day to participate is 31st May. I will announce the winner on 2nd June.



Anyway, Jowie has stopped making earrings due to personal reasons. Here are some of the cute studs she made. It's a pity she had to close her Etsy shop. Hope she will reopen her shop soon!

PBJ Sandwich Preparation Board

Hi everyone!
I know I've been missing in action (1 post per month!!!). Hence I thought I'd make it up with what is meant for TWO posts. As if two is a big deal. :D

I've always wanted to make some mini peanut butter jelly sandwiches. I haven't made a preparation board in a long time. So tada ... presenting my PBJ prep board! I wish I could use something other than my wrinkled fingers to show the scale, but somehow the tools that I have (toothpicks, old tweezer, stained  brushes) don't fit in so well. You can just pretend that my fingers are blurred out.


Some fun facts from Wikipedia.
The peanut butter and jelly sandwich or PB&J is a sandwich, popular in North America, that includes a layer of peanut butter and either jelly or jam on bread, commonly between two slices, but sometimes eaten open-faced or with one slice folded over.
A 2002 survey showed the average American will have eaten 2,500 (really???) of these sandwiches before graduating from high school.

What is meant for another post is this pastel layered cake. I love making cakes!  


Oh... Wikipedia even has a page for layered cake but nothing interesting though. 

Hopefully my next post won't be in June. Have to break the one-post-a-month cycle! 

And ... 

Happy Mother's Day to all wonderful mums out there. ^_^
