Miniature in Tune 2013

A dream came true this July........a whole week in Denmark at Tune enjoying miniature bookbinding & blind & gold tooling course, with a wonderful teacher Tine Krijnen, good friends with a common interest, fabulous food,sunny weather and a lovely place. A must again next year.

Following is the website for Miniature in Tune.

My choice was a 3day course & a 2 day course in bookbinding and blind and gold tooling of bookcovers with Tine Krijnen from Netherlands. We enjoyed wonderful days with her as a teacher. She was well prepared and a professional with good humour. She walked us through the steps with ease. I came away with a good solid basic knowledge for working on my owe making bookblocks, binding books and tooling the covers. It was a very interesting learning curve for me.

1:12 scale miniature books made on course.

Blind tooling
This is an open cookbook with splatters of coffee..

A Year has gone by....................

In a couple of days a year will have passed since I posted last.

Kits, courses, a Christmas theme roombox, Peddler Lady roombox, Dollshouse treff group, KDF 2012, Miniatura 2013 and a week at Tune in Denmark have made this a busy year for me.

My interest is a mixture of 1:12 scale miniatures/ dollshouses/roomboxes, & 1:48 scale miniatures/ dollshouses.
  1:48 scale kits from Jane Harrop
These kits are fun to make but one has to be very gentle as they are fragile,being so small in scale.
