It's Christmas!

Happy Holidays! Christmas is coming, and this most colorful of all seasons is a fine time for expressing your love of baubles, bangles and beads. No matter how you want to do it, the shop is well supplied with all kinds of decorations to make your miniature house or project into a showcase of the season.

We welcome you to celebrate the winter holidays with us. From a front door welcome mat to wrapped gifts for under the tree, you'll find lots of fun awaiting you. There are Santa and Mrs. Claus and a hound dog completely outfitted in a Santa cap and scarf. Come on down to see fancy foods and pastries and the dishware to make them look even more festive.

Hooray for the holidays!

Kits are available for those who wish to construct their own decorations. This one is of a Christmas Reindeer. The printed sheet right below the reindeer shows a sample of the supplied instructions, clear and concise down to products needed.

In preparation for Christmas decorating, Michael Sue recently led a class in the creation of a real size Christmas tree ornament with some special miniature features.


We have our own Christmas tree lot!

Have a wonderful holiday season!

We hope to see you soon!

Michael Sue's Tips

If your Fimo is hard and just a little crumbly, add a smear of petroleum jelly (such as Vaseline) and work it into the clay.

For laser cut kits that are dark on the edges, clean off those edges with Wet Wipes with lanolin. A coat of a good quality acrylic paint such as Ceramcoat or Americana will provide coverage to the cleaned off edges.
