An award!

Thank you for this award!

The award rules are:

1. Thank the person who gave this to you.
2. Copy the logo and place it in your blog.
3. Link the person who nominated you.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that no one would really know.
5. Nominate seven 'Kreativ Bloggers'
6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.

Thank you goes to Nuri at for the award below:

Here are the seven things most people may not know:

1- I work off and on during the day (and take a nap for a couple of hours every afternoon) but really gear up with the miniature making at night.
2- I'm not wild about ham
3- Making pineapples is something I am asked to do quite a bit (maybe because I'm in Hawaii?) but I always find an excuse NOT to do it. This is because I think it's one of the most difficult things to do right. I made it once. I wasn't happy.
4- I don't use the skinner technique.
5- I don't use a pasta machine, although I have one.
6- I make miniatures ON my laptop (on a ceramic tile). My laptop is covered with a protective screen because I trashed my last one and got clay and chalk dust in the keyboard.
7- I often use my body and clothing as a "palette". I put glue on my left hand, take my tweezers, dip it in the glue, and attach it to whatever I'm displaying stuff on. I also sometimes mix paint on my hand. I wipe my hands on the tank tops I wear when I'm working. Consequently, I have an entire wardrobe of paint and glue smeared tank tops.

The blogs I nominated are:


  1. ha! that was fun to read! I see you're even more crazy than I thought :D

    I'm not wild about ham either, I prefer chicken :D

  2. Haha!! I'm glad you liked it, Steph! I am pretty "unorthodox". I am a chicken freak!! My mom keeps waiting for me to sprout feathers. Actually, it would be feathers and fins ;-)

  3. Gracias por el premio!
    A mi también me ha parecido muy divertido leerte.
    Cuantos secretos!

  4. Mi placer, Teresa! Usted se lo merece:-D!

  5. OMG! I have the same bad habit as you! I even wipe my paint brush on my thigh to "thin" the paint! LOL. I was just thinking of getting overalls or apron (like real artists in the movies) so that I can put them on whenever I mini make and never wash them ! Thank you for the nomination. I was going to nominate this blog for the same award. I think I am going to do just that (posting on Thursday) but you won't need to re-nominate again since you have already done so here :).

  6. Yep Sans- I do thighs, arms, whatever is convenient! An apron is a great idea. I was actually thinking of getting some kind of apron or bib-like thing, but more to catch the pieces I drop on the floor. I am notorious for having to get on my hands and knees with a flashlight, searching in vain for dropped (already baked) pieces of fruit and whatnot. And I almost NEVER find them!! It is like the Bermuda Triangle by my workspace!

    Thank you for the award, Sans!!
