Fabulouslyflawedminiatures is finally reopened!!

Hello, I finally have the shop reopened, it's a soft reopening. I will be adding new items daily until I get everything reloaded. Once I the normal stock items up, I will begin working on woodwork and furniture pieces. Thank you all so much for keeping up with me and checking in on my shop. I've already had lots of views!!! This makes me happy. 

I am going thru lots of mini storage boxes and finding lots of goodies. There are things that I've started but never completed and there are things that are completed that need uploading. It's fun looking in the boxes and finding things I forgot about. Today is day two, and I'm so excited to be back. I can't wait to start working on one of a kind pieces. Wishing you all a great day!!

Hello Friends…


Happy New Year! It’s been a long time, 3 years to be exact! Wow, I never thought I would be gone that long, so many times I tried to get back to it, but life took over. Nothing bad, just life. My mom joined our family for about 2.5 years. Mom and I share a “DIY” passion, so we basically worked on my entire house. I’m not kidding! 

I love old classic furniture made from quality woods. We spent quite a bit of time visiting thrift, goodwill, and vintage stores scouting out wonderful finds. But...they all needed editing, i.e., removing old stain, fixing, sanding and finally staining to bring the items back to life. I admit, it was a hard job, but it was great spending time with mom doing things we both love. Remember COVID, yep went thru that too! I was so proud that we all remained COVID-free up until the very end. By that time we all were vaccinated, so it wasn’t too bad. In May of last year, mom moved to Texas, that was and is, very difficult for me. We are extremely close. I miss her company so much. The remainder of the year I finished up projects and enjoyed Christmas time with family, including mom! 

It’s a new year and I have miniatures on my mind. I am finally at a place where I can began to create and sell again. Oh man, I’ve missed the mini world!

Although I haven’t be active, I see many of you have and I love watching what you are making, how you are using social media to showcase your work and the wonderful projects you are producing. It’s great! I am so inspired! 

This week has been the start of getting my shop, fabulouslyflawedminiatures (Etsy) up and running again. I'm not live yet, but I'm getting closer.  I started by working on organization; logging into accounts, changing passwords, reading the Etsy catalog to see what has changed (the fees...OMG), reviewing my inventory, opening Photoshop and practicing on things I had mastered a few years ago, and updating all of my devices.

I checked out my Etsy traffic, and I pleased to see that people are still visiting my site, this makes me so happy and I thank you so much! 

Please keep an eye out, I should have everything working again very soon, I will make an announcement on all of my social media platforms when the shop reopens. If you are not following me, here are links to all of my accounts:

Mini Mucha Menus...

 Today I completed a Mucha Menu card for a customer who always request unique orders from me. The customer sent me her menu items, I needed to make it fit in a very small space. After playing around for a bit, I was able to make it work. This was so much fun to make. 

The card will be used on a buffet type table that is small. I wasn't sure of the exact size, so I make 3 different sizes in a light version and a dark version. Here's a peek:

Original Mini Artwork...

I have always wanted to paint little mini canvases. Yesterday, I have a little extra time while the mini furniture was drying. I pulled out a little canvas and created the little modern piece. 

Working on the frame, but excited so I thought I'd share.

Here's a peek:

Coming Soon!
