I wanted to create a design I have used many time, shabby styled roses for the back drop of this cup. As a miniaturist for the last several years I have been honored to meet many other creative artists who love miniatures. We are all a part of a wonderful world wide community and have enjoyed being friends and encouraging one another on.
On Instagram over a year ago I created a themed Link up party and called it "Lovely little miniatures' and I use this hashtag #lovelylittleminiatures Well the community encompasses wonderful talented people that either make miniatures as a hobbyist or professionally to sell. Either way this community of wonderful people have connected through this Link up gathering and have grown in friendship as well as skill. Skilled every day people that come from all over the world. Many speak other languages but we all have come together in a simple artistic way and have formulated wonderful friendships as a result!
This cup is an overflow of that community.
I first started enjoying miniatures as a little girl. My father helped my interest by buying me little things from all over the world. He was a world wide minister and found the secret to keeping me quiet in church was to involve me with little things - miniatures. He knew what made me tick and was a big influence on me at that age.
Years later my parents moved in with my husband and I in their later years. I quit my professional job to take care of them. I began to make little miniature bedding sets as a way to bring in additional income while I was working now from home.
Who knew that this little side job would turn into such an amazing business venture for me.
Other encouraged me and cheered me on and that is what I aim to do in this incredible community of people who love little miniatures....hence the name 'lovelylittleminiatures
This cup has my wording (copyrighted) and my design.
