Monster High Minis

I picked up a few Monster High minis a couple of months back, and I like them so much more than I though I would. They mostly (except for my Catrine) have nice paint jobs and feel really well made with a nice solid weight to the plastic. So far I have about six of them, and at $5 a pop, they are not cheap. But then again, toys are just expensive in Australia. I wish I were really rich. Then I'd buy a huge mansion and fill it with dolls and cats. I'll end up being the local haunted witch house, lol.

Miniature books

Mini books, first try I made these a month, or maybe a month and a half ago. My health has not been very good this year, so I haven't been doing as much as I used to (which isn't very much at all, really...).

I wanted to make books with pages you could turn with real text on it. Lots of research later, and these were born. I also needed to put a piece of sticky tape over the covers because I have a laser printer and the ink cracks when I fold the paper. The sticky tape trick works quite well, fortunately.

After I made this I realised that I wanted the spines to be curved rather than flat. That will be my next lot of books! No idea when I'll get around to doing them. I spent so much time making and remaking these and researching that I don't really want to go back to making tiny books for a little while. Plus I took a shitty picture which I really dislike.
