After a 12 year absence and with the repeated urging and encouragement from two of my mini friends, Janine (Minworks blog) and Fatima 'Fats' of Beauxminis, I am Finally, entering the world wide web of show and tell. I have only just learned to e mail and only just learned to use a digital camera. I have always used technology under duress and my first response is that I can't do it! That is why I always balked at the idea of getting involved on-line. This past year I have been the recipient of my son and daughters 'old' electronics which prompted me to give it a try and having tried it, to my surprise and delight, I REALLY LIKE IT!!! Janine will be pleased to read this as will Fats as they both have been singing the praises of various artisans and creative sites for years and I had turned a deaf ear to it all. Although, I had been inactive in the world of miniatures, I had continued to collect bits and pieces over the years and for the most part, I had all the supplies and purchases I had from' back in the day', stored in the garage just waiting. My collection stood still but the world did not and by the time I decided to start playing again with my toys the level of what others were doing in miniature was astonishing! I'm an interpretive miniaturist rather than a purist and my favorite blogs are the 'something form nothing' ones that teach you how to see things as what they could be, rather than for what they are, so that is what much of my blog will be geared towards.... the Possibilities, praise God, that are endless ....ENJOY!
