~ GIVE-AWAY and CELEBRATION ~

Hello sweet friends! I have a reason to CELEBRATE and I couldn't think of a better way than to have a give-away! I just found out my miniatures made the cover of the November issue of American Miniaturist. To say I'm thrilled, blushing, and ecstatically happy is probably an understatement. I am over the moon! :) Somebody pinch me! { I asked my daughter to and she actually did, lol, and hard, ouch!}. I haven't seen the inside of the issue yet but they did an article on me and my miniatures and I also did a tutorial for them on deep dish apple pie. I am beyond thrilled and so honored too!

Soooo, I wanted to create a very special miniature for you as my give-away. It's the bakers rack above and everything on it comes with it too! I've been working on it all week. It's my way of saying Thank You! Thank you for all your support and encouragement and friendship, always!

Here's a preview of the cover :)

If you'd like to order a copy , here is the link to this issue {It comes out in about 2 weeks} American Miniaturist , November 2011

I got off cloud nine long enough today to do the finishing touches of the Baker's Rack, I hope you love it as much as I did making it! And as the picture below shows, you don't have to have a dollhouse to collect or love miniatures, they make great conversation pieces and are so much fun to have around.


I add a piece now and then to my kitchen shelves. I like nostalgia in my home scattered about and sometimes a miniature that I've created brings me back to a feeling I loved. Like grandmothers hutch, or a mini table-setting of a big celebration I want to remember, or a little remembrance of a birthday party etc! Or, sometimes I just want a simple mini apple pie resting on a shelf next to a cookbook. :)

With that said, you don't have to have a dollhouse to love them and you don't have to have one to enter the give-away either!

Here are the rules: {simple and sweet} Just leave a comment on this post and you are entered. If you want 2 chances to win, post about this give-away on your blog or facebook (linking to this post) and make sure to come back and leave another comment so you have 2 chances. That's it :) You can use any of my pictures you'd like when blogging about it.

Here's the miniature Baker's Rack:

It's filled with sweet delectables! A yummy deep dish apple pie under a glass cake stand, sugar cookies, cupcakes galore, a slice of cake, 2 glass jars filled with decorating sugars, copper hanging pots, a bakery sign edged in pink gingham, and so many little sweet details! The Bakers Rack is painted a soft pale pink and distressed back to show a hint of it's black original color, and it's back is closed off with a beautiful bounty of pink and red roses....





I put a lot of love and care into my miniatures and I hope it shows! I wish you ALL could win because you've all been so wonderful to me. I'm coming up on my one year anniversary into the miniature world {from Interior Design} and I could not be any happier with the transition and change of careers! That old saying is so true, " If you dream it , you can find a way to live it"....

Thank you to my followers, friends, and family too, for sticking with me and for always encouraging me to "Go for it". And thank you to American Miniaturist and Traci for making my little dream come true with your November issue! Big Hugs!

I left you all some Country Fair Cupcakes :)

Ohhhh Darn lol, I forgot!! The Winner for the give-away will be announced on October 15th! That's a couple of weeks before my 50th Birthday, how the heck did that happen? Meaning, turning 50? I think Miniatures make me feel even younger, so that's why I do them :)

With hugs and appreciation!

Cynthia xo

Cyn, I'd love to win, too. Of course, everyone would. If I don't, then may that lucky person enjoy the exquisite baker's rack. Wow, you always add extra TLC into everything and all that you create. You're like Tinkerbell sprinkling pixie dust around... my 4-year-old Megan loves Tink. ;) Meanwhile, I'm gonna get my hands on that November 2011 copy of American Miniatures - history in the making! Congrats, again, Cyn. XOXO

Well, I just KNEW that you would be truly "discovered" someday because I have never seen ANYONE ANYWHERE that can duplicated real life the way you do in miniature. You are the best!

I hardly ever sign up for giveaways but I will ask you to sign me up for this one. I just dragged the doll house out that my bil built for my kids. It is an exact replica of his grandmother's house. I am determined to fix it up and make it beautiful again. The exterior is wonderful but interior needs re-doing. Do you know she had a baker's rack in her kitchen? So...I got my fingers crossed on this one!

Enjoy your moment of fame because you SOOO deserve it...and I think you are going to get bigger (NOT your butt!;>) and you will become famous in your own right. That was a good decision you made a year ago to change your direction! Kudos! xo Diana
