Easter Baking // 1:12 Scale Miniatures


Hey there! It has been a CRAZY year! As I talked about in my previous post- Twintrees has had some changes... and that is always the case for ABB! Things are always changing and growing. Not to mention all the things going on in my personal life... but I'll save you that series of novels. Haha!

Today I would like to share with you guys the recent Easter miniatures I have been making! This year I wanted to carry over the colors I have used in previous year's ranges into other minis!

I was recently inspired by the breads that Stephanie Kilgast teaches in her wonderful book, as well as the real-life counterparts I see on Pinterest. Though, as always I add my own little spin on things. So please take a look! I have Easter bread nests/braids/wreaths, as well as cakes and Easter eggs!

CLICK HERE to see these MINI BREAD NESTS in my Etsy shop!





Also, I found these guys! Glitter Easter Eggs I made LAST YEAR! Can you believe that? I made so many of them.... dozens upon dozens... only for them to sit in a box for a year. But no longer will they be kept in the shadows! I brought them out and shot some new pictures of them and they are now listed in my Etsy shop HERE!


Not interested in mini ornaments? That's alright! The hooks come out with a little tug and you can use them as Easter Egg Decorations! Haha!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by! I wish I could say when I will have the chance to make some more miniatures- but I honestly never know. I can say for sure that I miss it! Making these few miniatures was a ton of fun and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!


Oh! One more thing... look at these candles! I am SO proud of how they turned out and now I want to add candles on top of everything.... BAHAHA! But seriously. Feel free to click on the image so you can easier zoom in! These cakes are listed in my shop HERE and come with a cake slice :)

New Year, New Changes! // Updates

Hey there, friends! How long has it been?? Too long! A lot has been happening at ABB! It's crazy how much a new year can bring upon us... First of all- I MISS YOU GUYS! Thank you all for the constant support and love- you are very much appreciated!

The big news that I must inform you all of is that Twintrees is now 100% mine! My lovely business partner has handed the whole thing over to me! It's bittersweet to say the least... on one hand, I no longer have a partner to share the struggles, successes, and stresses with! But on the other hand I can now make the decisions myself and push the brand like I want to! No matter what, her assistance up to this point has made Twintrees what it is and will continue influence the brand for the better!

Check out the Twintrees Etsy shop to see what I have been working on!




Twintrees is catered to photographers who may want to add a little character to their client CDs. I can also make custom sleeves for weddings, graduations, and any other celebrations. The possibilities are endless! They are great for CDs of photos or music! There will soon be a Twintrees blog up and running but in the mean time feel free to Like the Facebook page, HERE!


The only effect this has on A Bohemian Bazaar is that it postpones my plans a little bit. I am currently working on a stock of sleeves for Twintrees so that I just mail them off when they sell! Once I have a decent sized stock- I am getting back to work on ABB!

Speaking of ABB... I have a lot planned for the near future, but to avoid putting the cart before the horse I will hold that news until a later date! I can say that the longer I stare at my clay on the shelf the hungrier I grow to get my hands in it!

I will try to check back in again soon! Thanks for stopping by!
XOXO

2013 // Year at a glance!

Hello, all! Thank you so much for your well wishes, your Christmas wishes, and your wishes for the new year! I hope the same to you all! I am slowly making my way through my blog feed, so I will finally see what everyone has been up to! :D

I wanted to take a minute and look back at the year... to see how I have improved AND see how I can improve in the next year! Here is a master image of all the goodies I made this year-


Here is a short list of some of my highlights from the last year:
- Chocolate turtles in February.
- Assorted candies in May.
- Assorted breads in June.
- Bakery style cake in July.
- Watermelons, also in July.
- Jack o'lanterns from August - October.
- All of those yummy candy "canes" in November.
- Gingerbread house in December!

There were lots of other goodies I had fun making throughout the year, but these were just some of my most popular! Hopefully I will have the chance to make a lot more in the coming year... and I am PRETTY sure I will have that chance! ;)

We can't forget my very first guest tutorial over at minifoodtutorials.com! :D That was really fun, and I would love to do that again- or something similar. Oh! I also had the pleasure of starting twintrees! It's kinda hard to believe we (Ginia and I) only started that project in January of this year and it has already grown so much... my two little babies- twintrees and ABB!

I also have another little baby in the works, so-to-speak. BUT I will have to hold every in suspense for just a while longer until things are presentable.

I love you all, dearly- my days are always brightened so much when I get on here and see the support! So... CHEERS! To a fruitful, happy, healthy new year for us all!

XOXO
