  1. The Clover is my choice and I love it. Handy for many crafts, especially DH minis!
  2. >Soapz/Chris, I have the bacterial type of folliculitis. I am interested in the soap nuts, they sound eco friendly. economical, easy to use. I have a small apartment stacked washer/dryer set. How many would I use for it? I am going to get the trial size and give it a go. The Emuaid soap I use now is very rich and has been very effective in calming the itch and burn that I had been living with for years. http://www.emuaid.com/product/therapeutic-moisture-bar I try and keep things as clean as possible, including my poodle, so I don't happen to touch my head and transfer anything. I am
  3. Hi all Well I thought it was time to update the head sore topic. I did see progress, while my hair was very short. Things were improving and there were no new outbreaks. Over the last 2 weeks, as my hair has gotten longer than 1/2 inch I have had new breakouts and those that were almost healed have become aggravated again. I dread the thought of having it shaved down again, but I think it may be necessary. I have been taking pictures since the first day of cutting off the hair back in Nov. and they do show the healing and now aggravation of certain areas. So when the snow sto
  4. Thanks Selkie....I will check the album. I know my internet was super slow last night but I attributed that to the razing storm and high winds. Holly....just but a doll kit...I think MiniKitz has some that are fairly inexpensive. Then you could practice! But I bet you could do it without direction, you just need some parts.
  5. Hello my mini friends; I have been silent but busy since New Years. Between snow storms I have been knitting and on Friday the 13th (Feb) I assembled doll bodies. WHAT? I know, I know show me the stuff. Look for a new album called "Of the People" and in "Miniatue Knitting" So additions to the knitting album are in, and yes I am ready to progress down in size. I downloaded and purchased some miniature knit patterns and ordered in all the below zero sizes of needles, and silk, cotton and wool thread...yes thread to work with. First up, a simple skirt. I figure since it will b
  6. It has been a long year. It ended with my step-father of 40 years passing away unexpectedly on the 19th of Dec. It was quick, and that was the blessing, also that he hadn't engaged the running car into gear or had been driving. But it made for a long holiday season this year. We did push off all the formalities until the 28th and 29th, which helped. My head sores (folliculitis) has been improving slowly since I cut all my hair off. I have 3 that are completely healed now, and most of the others are shrinking. So while it tends to be cold, I think the buzz cut is working along with

  8. Well a few things I have used include Dried coffee grounds for dirt Snow paint for stucco (Snow Flakes Winter Emporium the Astor in my gallery) Dried fresh pumpkin seeds for natural stepping stones in outdoor settings (Peter Pumpkins' Produce in my gallery) Thin natural slate for exterior finishes ( Buttercup Cottage in my gallery) Small scale wallpaper samples for mini wallpaper Cards, Magazine or wallpaper "Scenes" for framed art (Willow Fairy's Scent Shop uses a calendar page picture, in my gallery) Nail polish for "gloss" paint when needed Clear nail polish as a sealer
  9. Hi everyone. I dug out the 1:12 baby sweater I made in 2010. It is on a Heidi Ott baby (I think). The back came out better than the front but that project was mini knitting cold turkey...my first try, first knitting in years and I got very frustrated with it all. Here it is. New 1:6 (Barbie) clothes in the gallery, I have been working cables and lace patterns on smaller needles. I had to take time off to make a few, three hats for myself. If you follow the unrelated forum on chit chat, you would have seen that I am dealing with a bad case of Folliculitis and have cut all my hair of
  10. Oh Grazhina I have moved countless times in my head and dreams. I have been a New England girl all my life. I moved recently to NC when I separated from my exH before the divorce, and I stayed there for 18 mos. It was hot and humid and my skin was no worse or better there. After the divorce was final, I moved back to CT because I was still unemployed in NC and I missed New England. My Dr has often said my allergies would be better in a dry climate, but I love the cold, the snow the trees and especially the ocean. I live on the coast and almost need that connection to feel balanced. As t
  11. It is a great place for resource pictures, and sharing interesting pictures of ideas and antiques and the like. I do have some miniatures in a folder there, kind of like a wish list or an if I ever get that good I could try that list. Enjoy Pinterest!
  12. Oh Sable, I do know what is in my shampoo, I don't use conditioner, and I know what is in my soap. I have to read labels because petroleum causes me to itch, caffeine gives me heart palpitations, as does aspirin. I cant have any nuts or strawberries or pineapple any more. Nothing with any possibility of Latex, and no Adhesives of any sort. So yeah I read and research. I go allergy free, scent free, dye free etc as much as possible. I am still on the fence about anti bacterial soap. Since so many lotion types of things make me itch, I hesitate to change right now. This new ho
