Next up is a pair of commissions made for a trade. I'm getting some awesome in-scale rock-a-billy cherry print fabric! =D Can't wait already have some plans for it! In exchange I made to breakfasts. My friend simply asked for bacon and eggs...well I just couldn't leave it at that! LOL So I made 2 platters of scrambled eggs and crispy fried bacon PLUS 2 Cheese Danishes; 1 cherry the other blueberry, I also made to mugs of Chai Tea/Coffee with cream/Hot Cocoa.
I am very happy with the way they turned out and my friend is over the moon happy as well!
2nd breakfast meal.
In my head I intend to have my shop stocked with Easter goodies BEFORE Easter...maybe I cam actually get some done! Here is a basket I created and filled last week. The basket was handmade by me from 2 kinds of ribbon, then filled with green 'grass' ! I stuffed the basket full of wonderful goodies including a plastic rabbit I repainted, several pastel plastic Easter eggs, 2 marshmallow ropes, a decorated chocolate egg and a bag of teeny tiny jelly jeans. Each jelly bean is about half the size of the head of a pin!
I also created a pink version of the basket that has a chocolate bunny and a bag of hard candies. The baskets are about 2 inches tall at the highest point of the handle! =D

This pic is the start of yet another commission. This one is also a trade for which I'm getting a large lot of Monster High items. My friend here has commissioned me to do a 'fancy restaurant meal for 2'. So we decided on appetizers (which I am still having a hard time deciding what to make), green salads, main course of filet mignon, lobster tails, baked potato and green beans, with some kind of dessert.
So far the Salads are as far as I have gotten but I created several varieties of lettuces, cherry tomatoes, black olives and red onion slivers. I am very happy with these and even created a third bowl that will make it's way into my shop...eventually! lol
Last but certainly not least are these wonderful miniature hand carved and hand painted horses. They are Dala Horses from Sweden sent to me by a dear friend!
These wonderful little treasures are just over and inch wide and the same high! I am looking forward to setting up another scene as I intend for these little cuties to find there way into as many scenes as possible! =D
