Back to School / Work

September is here and that means the end of the long summer holiday.  Eight weeks of school holiday seemed like an eternity at the start of July!

Thankfully the weather is still warm and sunny which means the new school runs are a welcome moment to down tools and expose oneself to the late summer / early autumn sun.  

The blog has been quiet over the summer. We've been on holiday to the UK (Marks & Spencers - yay!), had a summer Christmas (complete with Santa!), celebrated our sons 5th birthday (where did those FIVE YEARS GO?!) and even made a few miniatures, including this chocolate floral cake listed in our Etsy store earlier this week...

So what's next?

Well, we're working on our annual Pink Collection which will be launched later in September, after that we'll be concentrating on Halloween/fall miniatures followed by Christmas miniatures

There will be other pieces between those major collections, but that should take us nicely to the end of the year.  Let us know in the comments of there's anything you'd like to see in any of those collections.

One other exciting piece of news - we're soon about to be published in American Miniaturist! Keep your eyes out for the Fall issue 162... More about that soon :)
