My new Studio blog

Today I split this blog into two parts and created a new blog called Cynthia Blanton Studio.  The new blog will have all my posts related to polymer clay, jewelry, and wearable art while the posts about travel, photography and my doggies :-) will remain here.  If you have subscribed to or follow this blog because of your interest in polymer clay, please visit my new blog and subscribe there.  

I made this change because I am hoping to begin selling my work soon, and I want my Studio blog to be more professional and clay oriented than this blog has been.  But please feel free to stay subscribed here.  I enjoy sharing my photography and travel stories.

Miniature Dollhouse Furniture

My mom has a dollhouse, and years ago she bought a bunch of furniture kits from The House of Miniatures, part of the X-ACTO company.  Sadly, these kits are no longer produced.  Mom made a few of them, but after her strokes, she could no longer do such small, precise work.  The kits have been stored away for years, but when Mom came to stay with me for a month, I brought them along and got to work sanding, gluing. and staining.

As you can see, they are finally detailed, and the doors and drawers all open and close.
