Hello my dear friends,
Just a quick pop in before we say good bye to the Year 2014 and welcome the New Year. Firstly I wanted to welcome 2 new followers to my blog Janice and Mirel K Welcome. Thank you all for following and participating in my blog. It is very encouraging.
Today I won't be sharing anything but I really wanted to show my appreciation to everyone to the success of My Miniature World. The blog has reached 120 followers. We had over 47,400 views. If it wasn't for you followers and friends it wouldn't be a success at all. So from the depth of my heart and I truly mean it I want to say
So we will be having a brief go through of what a great year we had at My Miniature World. As my hobby keeps on growing stronger I enjoy going back and see what I did in the past year.
Well firstly I finished the renovation of My Toll House. I still can't believe that it came out so well. I never tire looking at it and sometimes it gives me such pride looking at it thinking that I was the one to make it. For those who wish to see the Toll House you can find a video I made of on You Tube how it was before and now. Just go on this link The Toll House Video
We also had The Bloom & Blossom Florist Shop. This was also a very nice project which I enjoyed making. This was made out of a kid's dolls House but there are no hints of it anywhere. It is part of my collection and I love it. The Bloom & Blossom Florist also was featured in The Dolls House & Miniature Scenes UK Magazine. It is another pride jewel.
Like you all know I started and finished The Coffee Corner Shop. Another small project but took me a while to finish as most of the miniatures where done by me. Today it is part of Regent Street which goes with Matquel's Antique & China Shop and Leah's Boutique. There is so much to see in this small corner shop. Manuel has been doing so well in his shop.
Then finally we come to my latest project which was Miss Leah's Boutique. I had so much fun building the house and making accessories. I enjoyed creating the Diary Stories and some how it gives so much detail. Miss Leah will return with her new home in the New Year. She has been very busy lately too. She made head lines on the News Paper and also made it on the Front Cover of VOGUE.
I have also been doing really well with My Miniature World Shop at etsy. I can't believe that it was going to flourish.
I really try my best to give first class services to my clients and I will keep on adding new miniatures as much as possible. For the coming year after lots of request I will be selling all my downloadable books in kit form as well especially for those clients who don't have a printer. I am also working on two new books which hopefully will be released by February. Miss Leah also decided to go online after I had some request to make some boutique accessories for sale.
A Special Thank You goes to my darling father who helps me a lot in My Miniature World Shop. I don't know what I'll do without his constant support. I remind you folks that he is the great artist behind the hand painted white metal miniatures. Thank you paps! Always loved you and always will.
I also wanted to thank the Face Book Fans. My Miniature World on Face Book has reached over 350 likes. As you might all know just as couple of months ago I have also created My Miniature World Group. It is a closed group that also serves as a forum where like minded people can share their dolls house hobby. Any one can join in. Now we have reached over 120 members. I want to thank them all for being a part of the group and for participating. It gives me great pleasure sharing with you folks and I really enjoy it when you share your own projects and miniature makings with me.
This year as a treat for all my followers and friends I wanted to make a Christmas Advent Calendar where behind each door there was a miniature project or tutorial. I tried to make it different and that everyone can find it useful. I wasn't sure if it would have succeeded but I am so happy with the results. We have over 1,100 view in the past month which I think it was just great. I am really happy that I have received such a good feedback and I promise you that next year we will be having it again with different projects. I also wanted to let you know that the Advent Calander 2014 will be online until New Year's Day so you still have the chance to save the miniature projects and tutorials. Thank you all for your support and if you need any help with them please let me know.
Well I can share with you what you are to await from me for the New Year. Well my darling husband Gilbert surprised me with another small Dolls House for Christmas.
|Gilbert's Christmas Present|
He got me The Barn kit from the Dolls House Emporium range and this will be the new home which will go next to Miss Leah's Boutique. At first I had chosen another kit which I had but this will be just perfect. Obviously we are not going to make it into a Barn but I will transform it into a small house which will be called No 35. Leah's.
|The Village Hall|
Also I will be working on a new project. It is a built Village Hall by the Dolls House Emporium. I have picked it up from a lovely Maltese Lady which wanted to sell it. The poor Village Hall needs major renovation. It definitely needed rescuing and I am really, really hoping to make a miracle. It is not easy to renovate something which you haven't built and more or less it is not in a very good state at all so I have a lot of work to do on it from scratch. Thinking about the poor building gives me goose bumps but I am sure I will manage. One step at a time and let's hope for the best. I have been looking at it for a while and I am hoping to turn it into a small church. Here in Malta we have a church or a chapel in every corner so I think some good inspiration will come across. This is to be called the Divine Mercy's Chapel. I am really looking forward to start working on it as I can't stand seeing it in the state that it is.
|5 Free Give Away kits|
I also wanted to give five giveaway for the frist five followers who will comment on today's entry post. They will be getting a free Christmas Song Book Kit. Yeps my lovely people just comment on this entry post, make sure you are one of my followers on the blog and just email me your address so I can post the kit. This is to show my appreciation to you all of you. In this coming year there will definitely be more of these free gifts so please don't lose courage.
So this is all my dear friends. As you can all see we had quite a good year and we will be having more fun in the year to come. Keep tuned for more updates.
Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy and Prosperous New Year 2015.
See you real soon and Take Care
