Back to my hobbies - mini time

Today has been lovely and sunny.  I finally managed to get some garden time in.

After all my hard work, I have been shattered tonight.  During my time of sitting like a zombie on the sofa, I have decided that it is time to make sure I get moving with my minis and dolls more regularly again.

So, I have measured the shelves on my 24th scale bookshelf and I am going to print out some blank pages (measured blank table squares) and I am going to start making some books.  As I have said before when talking about my 12th scale terrace, I really love the thought of all my books being able to be opened and 'read'.

Unfortunately, I have no photos of my minis to show today.  Hopefully I will have some pics soon. But here is a sweet picture of a different sort of mini :)

The baby giraffe at Dudley Zoo.  Such a cutie   :)

Anyway.  I am off now to start making and crafting before bed.

Hujoo Basic Progress

I have been working on completing the Hujoo basic following on from my first attempts as customising with Hujoo Berry.

This time she came with eyes already in which came as a pleasant surprise.  I had been thinking of changing them but to be honest I thought they suited her so they are staying.   This is here as she looked upon her arrival.

I had to remove her eyes to start the face-up so thought I would show how these particular eyes are held in place.

I have taken pictures throughout the face-up process. This is after completing the lip colour and blush.

Following on from this was starting work on eyeshadow and eyebrows.  I must confess, I am not a fan of trying to sort eyebrows and I am really not very good at them.  But, here is my attempt.

And then another with her eyelashes settled and in place.  I think the eyelashes make all the difference and am really pleased with the effect they give.

And finally with her wig on.

I still have her clothes to sort out.  I am getting there slowly.  I am still plucking up the courage to get sewing but I do have material and items to make jewellery so hopefully I will be able to post progress on these soon.
