Had a major renovation at home and that took up lots of my time. Doing the packing to move ll the things out to the storage, shopping for supplies like tiles, furniture. After the Reno, it's the moving back and unpacking. That was really tiring on top of my stressful and taxing job running operations and a new system role out which kept me busy since August 2010. I am craving for more time to the miniature world.
Just bought some Martha Stewart acrylic paint and some colorful glue stick. Hope to squeeze more time to get my hands on making some stuff.
Some work in progress now. Hope to finish them soon and show u guys!

I have no updates for quite along while. I have been busy shopping n working with my interior designer to give my house a major face lift. So, I am now starting to pack up my stuff into boxes to be sent to temporary store. I will also need to move out of my house for a month. Will be kept busy for a long while. While packing I tot I want to share with all of you my old collection of cups n plates in probably 1/3, 1/4 n 1/6 scale. The large hello Kitty mug is my coffee mug.

When I was a kid, I love this little biscuit. These are also use in prayers by some Chinese during the lunar 7th month. It's called the Hungry Ghost Festival and it will last for a month. Today happen to be the 1st day of the Hungry Ghost Festival and I saw people praying on the streets.
Thought it will be interesting to make some of this. So, I bought a packet of the biscuit as a guide.
If you like to read and find out more just google for Hungry Ghost Festival.
They are normally sold by weight. So, I bought a packet.
The life size biscuit is on the left and I have place a tooth pick for size gauge.
