~ New Additions

October 9, 2003 ~ No new project but wanted to share this great mini idea I came across a few days ago.... A use for those throw away AOL cds that seem to be everywhere I go. They are easy to cut with ordinary scissors and can be turned into mini mirrors. I love the opportunities for recycling things into mini objects.

What worked best for me was to score the shape with a straight edge and razor knife. Score deeply. Once you have your shape scored just take a pair of scissors and cut on the scored lines. Voila- mirrors!

You might try this with some of the printable frames on the accessories page using the picture portion of the printable as a template for cutting the mirrors. I already have a project in the works that will incorporate this idea into a bathroom mirror and vanity so check back soon.

October 7, 2003 ~ Now we're cooling! For those of you wondering where to put all that mini food you cooked with your mini stove, here's the answer- a mini refrigerator!

October 1, 2003 ~ Now we're cooking! I've been working on this project off and on for a few months and always ended up wanting to stick my head in the oven! A recent request from a visitor pushed me to complete this mini stove with a door that opens. It comes as three graphics that will each need to be downloaded and printed. Just in time for your holiday baking!

September 26, 2003 ~ Another project inspired by a visitor- 'Wee Tea' boxes can be found in the Junk Drawer

September 11, 2003 ~ I've received a number of inquiries recently about noncommercial use of these graphics. I thought some info about terms and conditions of use might be helpful so added a page about that. I hope all visitors will take a few minutes to read it.

July 9, 2003 ~ Added graphics for oriental shoji screens. There is a plain and a decorated version.

March 19, 2003 ~ Some new wall art - a mini clipper ship in an ornate gold frame was added to the Accessories page.

March 17, 2003 ~ Added a picture of some polymer clay "go withs" for the mini hibachi grill. See the bottom of the page. Included instructions for boil curing polymer clays.

March 15, 2003 ~ I've been playing with wood textures for future printables and thought they might be useful to some of you in sheet form. Some printable "planks" that may be suitable for stairs and short hallways can be found in the Junk Drawer

March 13, 2003 ~ Added wallpapers and borders that coordinate with the nautical quilts. See the bottom of the Mariner's Compass Quilt page.

Some nautical flags can be found at the bottom of the Flags page.

March 11, 2003 ~ By request, added a Confederate Southern Cross flag. Find it in the historic flag section at the bottom of the Flags page.

March 8, 2003 ~ I added a few more flags a few weeks ago. Scotland, Ireland, and Wales are available on the Flags page.

Added a new printable quilt with a nautical theme in four different colors. Mariner's Compass Quilt

To continue the nautical theme... a printable miniature treasure chest with domed lid. Mini treasure chest

Matching wallpapers and borders to come .........

October 20, 2002 ~ The holidays are just around the corner! Here's a small Christmas project to help you make the season merry, an Old Fashioned Ornament Box adapted from my personal vintage collection, to fill with your favorite mini holiday treasures.

September 30, 2002 ~ Some links were transcribed incorrectly when I updated this page on the 17th. Any one who had trouble reaching the B&W images or the baby items should find them now from the links below. My humble apologies to all who were inconvenienced.

Here's another small new addition. This one is an adaptation of an old box I found while cleaning out the garage. It's for furniture polish from a local store and company long out of business. I think it probably dates from the 30's. See it and get it here:

~Old Time Mini Shine~ 10 K

September 17, 2002 ~ Just a note to let you know this site is still active. Thanks for your patience. I've enjoyed your notes and messages. Please keep them coming! I try to answer as many as time permits.

I became a grandma in May and have been enjoying the new mini addition to our family. Good things really do come in small packages!

I've worked on a few pieces that never really got off the ground, but finally!, a new but small project I'm happy with. Hope you like it, too. This is derived from a scan of an old player piano music roll box. Player pianos and roll collecting are another hobby of mine.

See and download the mini piano roll graphic here:
~Old Time Mini Player Piano Rolls~

April 25, 2002 ~ Here's the second project for Black and White printers
~B&W Folk Art Cradle~

Also added a ~Teeny Weeny Cradle Quilt~ and mattress sized for the Folk Art Cradle.
And some ~Teeny Weeny Baby Things~ which includes a small frame, a baby album, and a child's book.

April 23, 2002 ~ I'll be adding black and white versions of some of my furniture printables for those of you without color printers. You might try printing these on colored cardstock or cardboard.

Here's the first, ~B&W Folk Art Hope Chest~. Try using the lining as a template to cut your own patterned lining from wallpaper or wrapping paper scraps.

January 31, 2002 ~ added individual graphics for each of the three US flags available on the larger Stars and Stripes graphic. See them on the ~Flags of the World~ page. Also added a new link to a site about US flag etiquette and history.

I'm continuing to play with the layout of the site redesign. Hopefully in the end it will display well in all screen resolutions. If you have any problems, please ~email me~

January 30, 2002 ~"Sounds" like there's a new printable in town! ~click here~ for the latest mini project! Also available on the ~accessories~ page.

January 26, 2002 ~A zip file containing all four kitchen cabinet graphics is now available on the ~furniture~ page. Uncompress the file after saving it to your desktop. You'll need a file compression/expansion utility like WinZip (Windows) or StuffitExpander (Mac) to open the zip.

Two broken links to the top kitchen cabinet graphics were discovered and fixed. Thanks Sherri for bringing this to my attention! I always appreciate hearing about errors so they can be corrected........and apologize for any frustration the bad links may have caused.

A new project will be here any day......... Stay "tuned"!

January, 22, 2002 ~Stars and Stripes and Miniature World Flags are back for download. There are about 45 different flags available. If you don't see your country on the list, drop me a note and I'll create one and make it available here.

You'll find the link to Stars and Stripes at the bottom of the world flag page. This graphic includes 3 versions of the US flag from colonial times to the present. A matching bunting is included.

~World Flags/ Stars and Stripes~

A small project from the old site version got missed in the update ...... a coordinating waste basket for the album quilt bedroom ensemble. This will print on a large index card. Album Quilt Waste Basket

January 21, 2002 ~As many of you who've visited before can see, this site has undergone a redesign. Hope you'll find the new streamlined version to be easier to use and navigate. PDF files have been removed for the time being but will return at a later date. The flags of the world are momentarily unavailable but should return by the end of the week.

I have some new furniture projects in mind that I'll be working on in the weeks ahead. We'll see how those go :^)........ I also plan on compressing some of the graphic files into sets that will be available for download as zips.

I really love to hear from you and enjoy all your notes. Drop me a line via email. Or add your entry to the World Friendship Book created to bring us together and make this big old world a little smaller. As we all know, small is a *good* thing!

Thanks for bearing with me through the site changes. If you find broken links or graphics, please let me know. Happy crafting!-chris
