Here are a few more things made from polymer clay. The mini pursesor handbags are easy to make, they might not be the greatest looking ... But they are not that bad either. Polymer clay is a great stress reducer as well. When you upset, knead some clay in your hands, and things don't seem to bad after all. Since a needle & thread are foreign objects in my hands... I can't make mini handbags from fabric... The true masters in this department are the two sisters who own " La Boutique" fashion doll size mini bags ! They are out of this world! Tiny knock-off's of actual designer bags... Gucci, Prada, Versace ... are only a few of the designers they make in miniature. Their website is slightly hard to locate ( since the way I found them was through a series of links off other blogs) But their online albums are filled with these tiny master pieces and worth a look see... So check them out !

here are some really easy dog collars & bowls... I forget where I found the tutorial, but they are so cute and easy ! I love these... My daughter thought they were really cute too... But she had a another idea for them... Wearing them as rings ! So I imprinted hers with our dogs name on the tag... She loves it !

Here is one of my favorite lines of minis... The AG Minis from American Girl. This is the wall aquarium, of which i found two ! So I got them both ! So far Ebay is the only place I have found where you actually have a selection of AG minis to choose from... And I am always looking to extend my collection...

I want to create a pet shop in miniature... But mini animals are expensive, and can take forever being shiped from other countries. So I decided to make my own ! Here is my first turtle in his tank. I already the the turtle... I bought the plastic box or container from Ebay for next to nothing. And after pricing resins to simulate water... I found a resin like liquid from Walmart for only 5.00 dollars ! The gravel are simply micro beads... or no-hole beads... again a find on ebay ! Not great but it's not so bad for a first try...

My latest project is to make a miniature fish tank and or aquarium. After checking out all kinds of websites and blogs to gather more information on how to... I only found 2 that were really good... the first comes from " miniature maker" here on blogger... and the other is on the " Greenleaf" ( dollhouse supplier) dollhouse website. Miniature maker is the best cost wise and as far as materials go... So thanks to you for that... I am about to get started making my mini aquarium... wish me luck !
