    1:144 Scale Cabin

    From the album: Micro Minis

    I started working on the Kit several weeks ago as a gift for a friend. It's the 1:144 scale LaserTech Log Cabin Lodge. I've used masking tape here to hold the loose pieces back in the sheet after removing them for dry fitting. Painting while the pieces are in the sheet is easiest.

  4. I have taken the plunge and opened an Etsy Shop! First item in it is a 1:144 "Toy Dollhouse" for the 1:12 scale dollhouse. Link to my shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/CheckMouseMinis
  5. From the album: Micro-Mini Scenes

    "Skating on the Pond." My daughter and I have been ice skating together since she could walk. And doing minis! So when we were sure we'd have all the gift-scenes done in time for Christmas, we made just one more scene, a gift from us to us.

    "Pool Hall." For my nephew, a competition-winning junior player who can run the table on me any day.
  7. From the album: Micro-Mini Scenes

    "Bowling Night." For my dad. His Monday night team just won the league championship for this past year, but I didn't know that at the time or I'd have him wearing his new lapel pin in this scene! In case you're wondering, we chose to leave the tiny, less-than-half-inch-tall figures (at this scale a half an inch is a six-foot—approximately two meters—tall person!) without faces or hairdos, feeling that at this size it would look either garish or invisible. At least with my micro skills. I can't possibly list all the design elements without boring you, but almost every single thing you see is hand crafted. I'm most proud of the things that were most insanely difficult, of course—the drums, constructed as close to how real ones are made as possible, with tiny drumsticks that are actually lacquered sewing thread because nothing else looked realistic in this scale; the pool table, topped off by a long "stained glass" hanging lamp with itty-bitty fluorescent bulbs; the quilting rack, which swivels just as a real one would to allow the seated quilter to get close to the section she is working on; the bowling alley's screen which through some clever design tricks almost looks as if it's lit up to show the bowlers' scores; the sweet acoustic guitar my niece is playing, which is finished quite beautifully on both sides and with care, can really slide in and out of her arms; and of course, all the little carved-wood figures, deeply involved in their activities, which required my magnifying reading glasses AND a 7x magnifying glass to see what I was doing as I carved all their minuscule arms and legs. Much harder than expected. Little did we know how tricky my daughter's sketches would be to bring to life. Very rewarding, especially when we gave them away.

    "Quilting Day." For my mom, whose creativity and patience with hundreds or thousands of small pieces of fabric boggles my mind. I was in charge of hand-carving and painting the figures (of wood), building all the furniture, "lighting," and other scene elements, and generally doing a lot of invention to figure out how to get the ideas in our heads into three tiny dimensions.
  9. From the album: Micro-Mini Scenes

    "Drum Solo." For my brother-in-law, a drummer whose band is much in demand on the local scene. For those of you who work solely in 1:12—If you know how big a walnut shell is, then that will tell you everything you need to know. Each scene is built inside one-half of a real walnut shell. If the size of a walnut shell isn't familiar to you, you'll see my fingers in some of the pix and that says it all! After we'd decided on these time-intensive little gifts for our family and agreed on the themes, my daughter sketched out the elements that we would fit into each scene. She also took charge of the landscaping in the outdoor scenes and the wall art—windows, "neon" signs, posters, and the like—in the indoor scenes.

    "Bedroom Guitar Practice." For my niece.
  11. From the album: Micro-Mini Scenes

    "Putting Green." For my sister, an avid golfer. With a touch of help from my daughter, now a busy high schooler, last November and December we made micromini scenes for the closest relatives whom we spend the holidays with, representing each of their hobbies and interests. As you all undoubtedly know, microminis are 144th scale, a dolls' house's dollhouse size. Itty-bitty.

    My little helper, McChecker (Mac, for short) is inspecting the finished product. It seems to meet his approval.

    Micro Penguins

    From the album: Scenes & Other Minis

    This is the whole batch of micro mini penguins. I made them the same day I was making all of the pumpkins. These are available in my Etsy shop!
