Aliens + Xmas + Minis + Sakura

Sometimes you put on garments that haven't been worn in a year and there's an old momento, or even a five dollar note (yay). This reminds me, a person once told me they would purposely stuff their winter jacket with bits of money so that the following year they would get a lovely surprise.

Today I was looking at the backdoor of my blog and noticed the blog reading list. I completely forgot about this list. I wiped the dust off the list by clicking on a few of them. Of that list there were only two blogs that are currently active on a weekly basis. Most of the blogs hadn't been updated in ten years, or had been deactivated completely.

This brought mixed emotions. But I reminded myself that many bloggers, same as me, made the transition to Instagram. Admittedly I do not blog as much as what I used to, which is perfectly fine. I come here when I need to. For the most part these days I use my blog to house the links to my craft projects that are floating around out there with other publishers.

And so, without further ado, let me show you some of my craft tutorial highlights.

The latest craft project for Kidspot is quite the theatrical piece and to get started on it you will need to eat one of those small box packaged chocolates.

If you're looking for a different kind of miniature project then take a look at the following.
