Happy Thanksgiving!

  [insert_php] previous_post('« « %', 'Older Post', ''); [/insert_php] | [insert_php] next_post('% » »', 'Newer Post', ''); [/insert_php]   It is Thanksgiving week here in the US.  This isn't so much to do with Thanksgiving, but here is my newest finished diorama. It is a autumn harvesting scene with some red and yellow leaves on the trees.  I don't have any tutorials with this post, because everything in this scene is previously explained in the past tutorials. ;)   This…

Fall Bounty – Sweet Potatoes

  [insert_php] previous_post('« « %', 'Older Post', ''); [/insert_php] | [insert_php] next_post('% » »', 'Newer Post', ''); [/insert_php]   Hiya! This is the last of my fall veggies this year.  I made some orange sweet potatoes.  These are also often called, "yams" in the US,  but the real yams are totally different, so I will just call them sweet potatoes to avoid confusion to the readers living in the rest of the world. ;) I like orange flesh sweet potatoes…

After coming to the US, I was surprised to see lots of carrots eaten raw, and many people even preferred them over cooked ones! Anyway, I made some miniature carrots! These are pretty easy too. :)…

Fall Bounty – Potatoes

  [insert_php] previous_post('« « %', 'Older Post', ''); [/insert_php] | [insert_php] next_post('% » »', 'Newer Post', ''); [/insert_php]   Howdy! Before I start Christmas crafts, I thought I'd make some miniature fall veggies for Thanksgiving.  Hopefully I made enough to use in my Christmas dishes, for later, as well. Miniature food crafting is so popular, and even has it's own community.  I usually avoid it because it looks like too much fun, and I'm afraid that I won't do anything…
