Christmas Sugar Cookies

[insert_php] previous_post('« « %', 'Older Post', ''); [/insert_php] | [insert_php] next_post('% » »', 'Newer Post', ''); [/insert_php] Hey everyone!  Do you like frosting on cookies and cakes?  I love looking at it but I just can't eat it enjoyably.  I like my cookies and cakes not too sugary, I guess.  :p I was asked how I made my miniature cookies that were in the last year's Christmas display.  I took some photos while I was making this year's Christmas display,…

teeny-tiny snow dome

Hooray! It's officially December! Did you start an advent calendar?  Back when I was in college, I used to open all the doors and eat all the chocolate on the first day! I made a snow dome for the Sylvanian scene inside of my candle lantern. I found these glass dome thingies in the accessory parts isle at Michael's.  They are 2cm in diameter. I didn't feel like using the metal base as is, so I made a hoax wood…

I read once that they used to make Jack-o-lanterns out of turnips instead of pumpkins. I wonder how big those turnips were!? Miniature turnips are very simple to make, I'm sure your Sylvanians will love them, too! To start, make a small ball with white clay. Second, pinch a small area and let the ball…

Fall Bounty – Carrots

  [insert_php] previous_post('« « %', 'Older Post', ''); [/insert_php] | [insert_php] next_post('% » »', 'Newer Post', ''); [/insert_php]   Hola! Do you like raw carrots or cooked carrots better? I like cooked better, just because I didn't grow up eating raw carrots in Japan. 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. :)…
