My 100th Post!



You know how you can be in a room with 100 people and still be lonely? If none of those 100 people love miniatures, it can be the loneliest place on Earth...

That is the main reason why, last spring, I began this blog and started to devour every other miniature blog I could find. I realized very quickly what an incredibly kind, sharing, supportive and unbelievably ingenious community you are! I found my people, and all of you are the same brand of crazy as me! Yippee!!!

No one in the mini community has ever made me feel like the new weird girl. In fact, any contact and comments left have been so very, very kind! It has been incredible, and I really feel the welcome. Thank you all so, so much!

To celebrate this milestone, I'd like to give back! These are the crazy holidays, so I'll leave the drawing open until New Year's Eve. Just leave a comment on this post, and your name goes in the hat. Whatever I make or buy for the Alki Point between now and 11:59 pm December 31st, 2015, I'll double. One for me, one for you!

What a grand adventure! This is going to be so fun!

  1. Hi Jodi,
    Aren't miniaturists the best? I hadn't seen your blog before, but appreciate the tips I just saw about small scale metal stock. Good info; thanks!

  3. Wow! You're being awesome! And congrats on your 100th post! It is really cool how we can all pool our knowledge isn't it? I'm pretty new to the blogging thing too, only a couple years, and I feel like such an amateur sometimes.

    I tried your suggestion for the stick flat glue on the HBS siding... Painting or staining it afterwards will still make it curl despite the glue. But its much better. Maybe painting/staining first and pressing it flat to dry? Then gluing it? Let me know how yours goes!
