I'm back......with a Giveaway!!!

Yes I'm back at last, thank you to those who asked if I was I said to them, life just took over for a couple of months and miniatures had to take a back seat.
I've been promising a giveaway for ages, a thank you to well over 300 followers, so here it is.......a Spring Potting Bench.......everything is stuck down, but there are still a few gaps for your own little details.

To enter the draw  these are the rules.
1. Be a follower of this blog and leave a comment under this post.
2. Like The Miniature Garden facebook page and leave a comment under the link.

So if you do both things you have two entries! I will be announcing the winner on Saturday September 15th at 18.00 British time.

I've come to a big decision this year, I'm stopping the ready made side of the Miniature Garden, the Kensington show in May was my last, but I'm going to be at Miniatura, The City of London Dollshouse Festival in January 2013 and Thame in February 2013, with my kits and all the related bits and pieces.
I will eventually be opening a Miniature Garden Etsy shop, to sell the remaining plants I have in stock.

Kit of the Month will return next month on 3rd of September. So until then Happy Miniaturing!

Happy New Year and Kit of The Month

First of all can I wish each and everyone of you a very Happy New Year !!
This includes all those who have joined this blog as followers.....sorry I don't say hello often  enough......perhaps this can be one of my New Year's Resolutions??!!
I try not to make them really, it's so disapointing when you can't keep a child it was all those diaries that started so well in January and had completely petered out by the beginning of February!
It's a bit like this blog, started with good intentions of posting lots of interesting things only to find that there are only so many hours in the day and days in the week, and not enough of either. Note to self...must try harder in 2012.

I do however manage to post a Kit of the Month every month!! So to start 2012 we have 1/12th scale Crocus.......sorry not in 1/24th scale......don't have a punch tiny enough........ though you could make these into 1/24th Tulips!
Each kit contains enough to make all the crocus shown in the picture...15 in all. And if you quote JAN12 on your order you will get the kit at half price, £1.95 instead of £3.90.

Hope you all have a Happy and Healthy New Year, and get to finish all those Miniature projects you have planned.
Georgie xx
