I (re)started making miniatures a little over 2 years ago. I had created a haunted dollhouse about 15 years ago. I'm an empty nester and semi-retired. I saw a video on Facebook of food being made in a tiny kitchen and shared it. One of my friends commented on it and how she used to make miniatures, which peaked my interest and I started looking up dollhouses and miniatures and I was like, Wow! Maybe I can do this. Since then I've created a few roomboxes (1 as a gift) and rehabbed 2 dollhouses (1 as a gift). I'm now starting to work on my 4th roombox with plans to rehab my haunted dollhouse. This is only a hobby, no selling on my part, and I primarily create "moments in miniature." For example, I created my Grandma's 60's kitchen and a 70's unfinished basement. I love doing this and look forward to being in this forum. Happy miniaturing!
