Miniature News - January 2024

 Happy New Year!   Wishing all my Miniaturist and Maker friends a productive and inspirational 2024.

I'm hoping this is the year I get a few projects done. 

I have a few houses I want to build and I just added a nice Linfield to my to-do collection. This one my Mom found at Goodwill for $30. I'm not 100 percent that all the pieces are there but the materials alone were worth the price. Always check the thrift stores for kits and materials before paying retail.. So many people donate them because they never find the time to do them. I have found all my nice kits and houses at thrift shops.

2023 was an exciting year for 1:6 scale and fashion doll lovers with the release of the long anticipated Barbie movie. If you haven't had a chance to see it yet I highly recommend it. ( Ryan Gosling!!!) The movie has been nominated for numerous awards and in my opinion, was partially responsible for getting people back into the theatres. I don't normally watch award shows but I will probably check out the Golden Globes this weekend to see the cast. ( Ryan Gosling lol!!) The film has also renewed interest in doll and Barbie collecting.

Best in Miniature Season Three dropped the last week of December on CBC.  I've already watched half of it online and I am so impressed at all the talent.  If you haven't seen the show yet you can stream it for free on the CBC Gem App

One of the artists on the show I found inspiring was Lance Cardinal, a designer, and television personality from the Bigstone Cree Nation in Treaty 8 territory.  Read more about Lance here (and see his awesome "IT" inspired house
