Fall Baking

I was inspired to do a little Fall baking this week, so I made pies, cookies, and salads. The salads aren't quite a seasonal thing, but it was something I wanted to do for a long time. I also carved out a few sets of wooden serving spoons to go with the salad platters. All of these items will be listed in my shop. Get yours before they're gone! Cheers!


Corner Bakery

I'm sharing these old pictures from one of my first miniature projects - a simple corner bakery. They're a source of inspiration to me, so maybe they'll inspire you, too. Take note of the changes in my artistic abilities and photography skills. I used some accessories from eBay, some from furnishings Hobby Builders Supply, and some baked goodies made by me.

The best advice I can give to anyone interested in creating their own miniature bakery is to start small. Bigger is not always better when starting out.  Try assembling a scene or shadow box, then move to a room box or smaller dollhouse. It will save you time, money, and frustration. Cheers!


The History of Small Stuff Studio

My first venture on Etsy was in 2012 when I opened a shop called Ginger Prim Creations. (Odd name, I know.) Crafting items for the shop kept me busy for a few months, but it wasn't something I was passionate about doing. My creativity quickly fizzled out.

GingersLittleHouse (formerly GingerPrimCreations)

One day, I stumbled across miniatures that were made with polymer clay. I was suddenly struck with nostalgia of being a little girl playing with my dollhouse. I was so amazed by the realism and inspired with creativity that I bought a block of polymer clay and gave it a try. I purchased books, watched tutorials, and practiced techniques. A quick name change to Ginger's Little House, and I was officially what I call a "mini-maker".

This sad little citrus layer cake was one of my first miniatures.
I remember being so proud of myself.

In 2016, I went on hiatus, but I missed making miniatures. I decided to abandon the old shop and start fresh with Small Stuff Studio. So here I am, starting a new blog dedicated to showcasing my adventures in mini-making. I look forward to sharing my projects with you.
