Busy, busy, busy!!! :)

It's been crazy busy here in the Whimsy workshop and
I've been working the poor lil elves' fingers to the bone!  ;)
It's great being busy with orders, etc., but I'm also
looking forward to finding some time to work on some of
my own projects soon.  It's a juggling act, isn't it?!?  :)

I've added a new style of purse to my Etsy shop
I really love navy blue and silver together, don't you?

Pink and black are always the perfect pair!

And who can resist the elegant combination of black and gold??

I also finished another set of animal print luggage for
a shop in Pennslyvania.  I really like how it turned out!
Animal print is so popular right now!

And now I'm back to work on another custom luggage order, 
but I leave you with a new teamMIDS 
Mini of the Week to feast your eyes on...
How cute are these?!?  I love 'em!  :)

Random Number Generator

I wish everyone could've won one, but that would mean
I'd be busy making laptop bags for the rest of my days.  ;)

Second Chance Blog Giveaway, Part 1


It's Almost Time...

Second Chance Blog Giveaway
The clock is ticking ... in one hour and ten minutes (from this moment
as I write this), it's draw time!  Who will be the lucky winner
this time?!?  Oh!  the suspense!!!   :D

In an hour and now nine minutes, I will close the entries to all
Followers at that time.  There are curently 114, only 113 of which are 
entered as one is apparently a Private Follower and I
can't see who that is, therefore, there is no way to enter
them into the drawing.  If more Followers join between
now and noon, I'll add them to the entry list.  At noon, I'll use
a random number generator to pick a number.
The Follower whose number (on the drawing list) 
corresponds with the randomly selected winning
number, wins!  How exciting!!

Show and Tell
In the meantime, I promised some "show and tell"
from the Las Vegas miniature show I attended, and here
is the first pic.  A perfect and exquisitely beautiful
wicker furniture set.  Isn't it divine??
Made by Wilhelmina of Wilhelmina Miniatures, it is
my prize purchase of the miniature show.  Before the show, I was
so hoping that there would be some wicker furniture there
as I've been really wanting some for a very long
time.  And, wouldn't you know it, Wilhelmina was
at the table directly behind us!  How awesome is that?!?
I was able to drool over her creations the entire show and
picked out the perfect set.  I love it and can't
wait to create the perfect patio space for it!

Really Big News in Miniature Plumbing
Also at the show was Houseworks, a trusted name in miniature
doors, windows, staircases, etc., for many years. 
They have recently introduced a modern bathroom set
which has been sorely needed in the miniature world for
a very long time!  The bathroom set is available at and is very realistic looking, wouldn't you agree?
The set is reasonably priced, too!
