Making Dollhouse Miniature Cupcakes Here

Making some dollhouse miniature cupcakes here…although my progress is very slow with the many other duties that I need to attend to. But I’m sure I will get them done, even if it takes 3-4 x the amount of time than I usually complete them. 
I used this miniature cupcake mold to make the cupcake bases, and I must say it is by far, my favourite cupcake base mold. Reason being, it’s high enough, looks amazingly good, natural and the creases or folds are sharp and just perfect! 
A bunch of them in my hands!
And if you noticed, some of the tops are painted already, and some are still unpainted.
The blue bases are calling out to me dearly.

Wishing everyone a happy, peaceful week!

Dollhouse Miniature Flowers - Pink Whispers

Hi everyone! This week is a slightly better week for me. Mom's feeling better than the week before, and that itself makes me happy. Mom still has her good days and bad days. We are just being thankful for a smoother week.

I also completed a bouquet earlier. Pink whispers is a refreshing bouquet that comprises of pinks, greens and purple flowers. The colors make me happy. I love the greens showing up in this bouquet!


It's been a while I made this standing vase. It's still one of my favorite styles. :)


Lots of mini leaves, berries and green bulbs.



Wishing you all a happy weekend!

Dollhouse Miniature Macaron Tower

I've just completed another slightly different dollhouse miniature macaron tower last week.

I'm pleased with this one, as I've made several minor changes. The changes are minor but hopefully they are noticeable.

The tower base is decorated slightly differently this time.


French macaron tower measures 4cm tall and 2.8cm at its widest.


Working on a larger bouquet right now....Hopefully I have something to show next time?

And in some other news, my mom had her first chemotherapy session today. So far it's pretty all right. Maybe it's too early to say?  I can only hope it stays this way - where she can still eat to keep her strength up. Keeping my fingers crossed that she doesn't get bad side effects. 
Having just been to the cancer center, I really have a new found admiration for those who go to treatments by themselves. It's not easy. 
Personally, I'm slowly trying to find a balance between caregiving and working. It's been a challenge, but I also remind myself to be kind to myself. I'm sure I will find some sort of equilibrium in this challenging times. :)
