A bouquet for my readers and friends in the mini land

I’ve been away from the mini world for 6 years due to the birth of my first kid, also the second one, and the fact that I have lost my father forever. I was lost; this was not easy for me but life continues! It's not bad to take a break; when I stopped handcraft projects, I read, I searched, and imagined about all the possibilities. 

I hesitated to tell that I was coming back to the miniatures world; I wait till my determation is strong enough.

Après six ans d’absence, deux bébés et le décès de mon papa, la vie continue et après avoir lu et cherché toutes les possibilités, hésité à annoncer mon retour dans le monde des miniatures, j’ai attendu d’être sûre de ma motivation.

Two weeks ago, during the winter vacation, we brought our sons visiting my parents-in-law. It's in the Parisian region, one place pleases me as always. Thanks to them, I had much more time browserling websites and I registered an instagram account. Since I am a newbie, in the meantime, please feel free to add me if I have missed yours; I will follow you in return.

Finalement durant deux semaines de vacances en region parisienne, amenant les enfants chez mes beaux parents, j’ai pu prendre le temps et me suis relancée sur instagram.

I have several ongoing projects: the first thing I start to launch is mini plant project. I found so many tallented and outstanding artists who created delicate flowers and plants when I was absent in the mini world. I was eager to own all of them (however I cannot...); I make up my mind to train myself. The second is, of course, Mini Food projet, my favorite one. The last is my dollhouse building projet « Au Rêve Gourmand ». Let me show you step by step once the switch mode is ready to turn on!

J’ai plusieurs projets, le premier les plantes et les fleurs, j’ai vu tant d’artistes talentueux (et peut être pas encore tout vu), et décidé de m’y mettre. Second projet les miniaturs alimentaires, mon favoris. Troisième projet ma grande maison de poupées « Au Rêve Gourmand » dont je vous montrerais les étapes de réalisation.

As a wife, a mother of two children, I'd like to boost myself to be a motive and creative artisan too. All what I need is endless force, energy and much more time for me to sustand the determination.

En tant que femme et maman de deux enfants, je me relance pour devenir un artisan espérons le inspiré et créatif ; tout ce dont j’ai besoin c’est d’une énergie sans cesse renouvelée et de temps pour soutenir ma détermination.

A little bouquet of peony and dusty miller just for you, my dear readers and friends in the miniatures world!
Hope everyone is doing well

Un petit bouquet de pivoines et cinéraires pour vous, mes chers lecteurs et des amis du monde des miniatures!
J'espère que tout le monde va bien

Hugs, bisous,


Snowdrops in 12th Sale

Two week's vacation is over! The kins are back to school. The house is quiet and I am happy making mini flowers alone and drinking my coffee; there is still room for improvement! 


Shop front painting

During the period that I could not work regularly on miniatures, I tried acrylic painting with a lady in town. I made a simple structure of shop front at home first and brought it to the workshop.

All what I needed was the patience for making the right colors! It was an amazing and interesting experience.


From Early Spring

It feels like a step in my spring.

Tea salon: the second floor

Bonjour! I start to re-work on the OLD project since Feb. It does take time because everything is new to me. I read, trying to know more occident interior/ exterior ornaments and design; I’d like to continue my tea salon project. In the meanwhile, I don’t work on polymer clay.

There are three rooms in the project; I start working first on the second floor room. For the interior walls, I have tried several layouts and color tones during the first two months; eventually the classical theme is choosen but I would like drive it to a modern interior design (I expect).

I hope I will have more time for the project during the summer time even there are two boys surrounding me. The elder one is 3.5 years old and the little one is going to be 14 months. I am glad I am back to the work I am longing for and I am happy to be the mama whom has two kids keep company with.

A bientot! :)


The Workshop in Paris in October 2014

It’s been a long time, an absence of 22 months.
Druing the difficult moment, I just could read from time to time some blogs when I was able to. I envy you who continue playing and singing in the miniature world. I don’t dare say that I am coming back to it now but I do miss it profoundly.

Après une abscence prolongée de 22 mois pour cause de bébé pendant laquelle je n’ai pas pu écrire, tout juste pu lire les blogs de temps à autre,  je reviens aux miniatures qui m’ont manqué.

A little news to let you that I am delightfully invited by AJAPM--- I will give a workshop in Rambouillet, 15 minutes by train from Paris, on 4th Oct. We are going to make a French wedding tower “la pièce montée en choux”; the piece is 25mm in diameter and 55mm high. If any of you are interested in the project, please contact AJAPM via contact@ajapm.fr.

Je suis invitée par l’AJAPM pour donner un stage à Rambouillet (15 mins de Paris) le 4 octobre. Nous réaliserons une pièce montée, un gâteau de 25mm de diamètre et 55mm de hauteur. Si vous êtes intéressée par le stage les informations sont diffusées par l’AJAPM , contact@ajapm.fr

For the moment I try to strive for more time in making miniatures. The project of “Au Rêve Gourmand” is still ongoing but it is totally modified. I don’t make any new listing on my Etsy shop but I accept custom requests. If you would like to make some new projects or some older items I have ever made, welcome to contact me oiseaudenim@gmail.com. Welcome take a look at my Flicker album or Pinterest too.

Je fais le maximum pour pouvoir continuer mes projets comme la pâtisserie « Au Rêve Gourmand » mais entre temps j’ai beaucoup modifiée le projet. Je n’ai pas remise de miniatures sur Etsy mais je recommence à correspondre avec mes clients pour les commandes spéciales.

Bonne journée,
