I can't believe how long it's been...
My daughter Alice Elsie was born in March, and life changed so much from one day to the other!
I truly enjoy being a mother, and the first few months I really took my time getting to know Alice and getting used to my new role. Now things have settled down a bit, I am working again as an art director and designer. As you can imagine, this doesn't leave me much time for miniatures.
But I was lucky enough, to work on a re-brand for a beautiful local toy shop a couple of months ago and got the chance to put a miniature scene together! More on their website.
I still read all your blogs and will hopefully be back with some new stuff in the new year!

I made this scene last week for the birth announcement card of my friends' baby boy. It's full of personal touches - for example the football strip of our local team and references to music etc.
Some of you might know that I'm expecting my first child as well - basically any minute now! So I will close my Etsy shop tomorrow morning and will take a break from miniatures for at least a couple of months. But of course I will keep up to date on all your lovely blogs!

This seems like ages ago, but I still wanted to share this exciting project with you!
Here are the rooms before retouching so you get to see more of the details that went into each room.
In December I was contacted by dutch ad agency UbachsWisbrun / JWT to build miniature scenes inside a christmas gift. I only had a few days to build the whole box and to put the rooms together. Then the people were photographed and I added them as flat paper cutouts to the scenes. And here you have the final result!
