Take Time To Rest!

Hello!  Hello!  Hello!  Like many of you I am wondering why time moves so very quickly.  We celebrated my Grandson's fifth birthday!  Two glorious days at LEGOLAND was where he chose to celebrate.  Seems like he hasn't been on earth for five glorious years. And now he is old enough to sit in my workshop and pretend to be me.

Yes, I know I am also moving slower since my 65th birthday a few months ago. Most times I am retracing my steps to find something that was never lost.  Or, repeating a conversation that was already told.  "Did I tell you this already?" takes up more time than you can imagine.  LOL.

Halloween is celebrated today by many, but my house will be dark to deter the trick or treaters.  Tomorrow is the beginning of National Diabetes Month and as a diabetic, I decided this year not to eat leftover snicker bars, baby ruths, chocolate bars, suckers.....They are all soooo delicious especially the sweet ones below.  Just one of my weaknesses.
Love these!

October is Breast Cancer month, therefore I took time to talk to survivers like me and the newly diagnosed. I wrote letters for "Girls Love Mail" for encouragement.  Please take a look at the website if you want to hand write encouraging letters too.  As a 14 year survivor, ladies I ask that you please take time to do your self exams and schedule your mammograms when due.

In my spare time I experimented with minis to create some new designs, organized my workshop,  purchased new fabric and caught up on some blog reading. I also took some time to rest. 
Minis I've created.

 "Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done." Genesis 2:3 NIV

Thank you for stopping by to read this post without a give-a-way in progress.  Thank you for following.

Hugs, Love, Kisses and Prayers to all!

Winners for August!

Yippie ki-yay! I finally found a way to announce the winners.  Thank you for patiently waiting.

 Congratulations to our two winners!

 It has been a struggle for me to go through the motions to collect pictures, grandson (Mark J) and all other things that happen when grief is present.  I'm still making minis to help me through this time in my life and will continue my give a ways. 

Friends, thank you so much for all of your encouraging comments.  Printing them and reading them during my "low" days really helped a lot.  Thank you to all new followers.

 Do you know that grief can stop a peron in their tracks for a long time and sometimes forever? I almost forgot how to blog!

 Trusting in God is a great source of help, but when your heart is bleeding don't be afraid to ask for more help because pain can be gruesome... Don't ever feel like you have to go through it alone, even if you have to call on me.  I'm here for you.

Summer is passing quickly like never before.  My inspirational grandson, Mark J got a passport and took off to Cabo San Lucas for vacation after summer school and didn't pull the winner's comments from the "lucky hat" until a fews days ago and afterwards he had to have a picture wearing the hat.

Winning comment #1 for dress on left side of photo from Isabel (morgana135):
Hola Felma, me siento muy triste al leer su post, siento mucho sus perdidas, seguro que su hermana estara leyendo la revista muy contenta y feliz... otras dos estrellas han subido al cielo! animos, me encantaria participar en su sorteo, lo pongo en mi blog, un beso muy fuerte.  

Winning comment #2 for dress on right side of photo from Malu:
Oh, Felma te acompaƱo en tu dolor, por tu hermana. Me gustaria participar en tu sorteo, pongo tu enlace en mi blog.
Besos de las Malu´s.

My translator is not working at the moment, but if one of these comments belong to you, please contact me privately with mailing information.

Lots of Hugs to All!

A Give Away Is Here! Thank You For Your Patience During My Time Of Grief!

"knotty" Ends August 7, 2014
Cute purse matches dress.
My dear friends, another Give Away is here.  Thank you for your patience, prayers and love during my time of grief and my absence from Blogging.  The sudden death of my sister went straight to my heart and paralyzed me with grief.  

My last post I shared with you the sudden death of my husband's brother. A month later my dear sister "Sis" didn't wake up in the morning.  She was excited and looking forward to receiving her copy of American Miniaturist magazine's June Issue to see what I had made.  She went to Heaven the day I mailed her the magazine. 

The first picture at top of page was taken from June 2014 issue of American Miniaturist Magazine.  It is a great magazine and has a great Editor, Auralea Krieger, who does a wonderful job!  Thank you Auralea.  The magazine has talented artists and lots of projects for you to enjoy.
Dresses above are just lovely.  Picture taken before sending dresses to the magazine.
The next give away is to offer one of my 302 followers a chance to win a dress because I feel honored to have you following my blog. 
"Hearts To You" Give Away August 7, 2014
To enter to win one of these lovely dresses, all you have to do is be a follower of my blog, leave an inspirational comment on this post only by the deadline of August 7, 2014 before 3:00PM Pacific Daylight Savings Time.  The lucky winner's comment will be drawn from my lucky hat and will be posted the following week.  Good Luck!

As always, welcome new followers and to all my followers my heart is always open and I love to hear from you by e-mail and comments for sure! 

I love giving and your comments encourage me to cheerfully give what is in my heart and this means also that if you have nothing in your heart to give, that is ok too.
"Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."  2 Corinthians 9:7 NIV
I am a cheerful giver!

Hugs and love to all,

Dollhouse Miniatures by Felma

Lots of "things" have happened in my life since I last blogged.  April started off with a bang of a birthday celebration and I celebrated for 2 to 3 weeks. 

 The rest of the month was filled grief for my husband because of the sudden death of his brother.  We traveled about 3700 miles by car to be with family and friends and pay our last respects. 

Hope all mothers out there had a Happy Mother's Day.  I had one the best I've ever had with family.

All the pictures on this page are miniatures I made during my absence from blogging.  There are more.  Some are sold.  Some may be shown in American Miniaturist June issue.

Thank you for following.  The next give aways will be soon.  I really need to catch up on my rest.  

Welcome to all new followers!

Spring Time! March Winners Announced!


Lots of things were happening last week in addition to pulling the name of the winners on Tuesday.  Spring sprung.  Joyce Bernard, The Trunk Lady came and spent the day with me.  We had a great time at lunch talking minis.  I stomped my toe the very next day and my foot is still very painful!!!   I also met some critical deadlines. 

5.1 earthquate centered in a town not faraway on Friday night and a huge aftershock Saturday evening and lots of little aftershocks in between.  As a matter of fact I can feel the earth moving under me now.  The house is slighty swaying with a few crackle and pops frequently, but I am so determined to finish this post tonight and announce the March winners.  I do fear for my fragile minis though.

I'm not too happy about not having pictures on this post.  Will post April Giveaway when I feel better.  My birthday is next week so it will probably be after the celebration.  Sixty five and alive!  Rain is forecasted on my birthday and I'll be singing in the rain!

Winners For March!

followers!  Don't you think this milestone of 300 followers deserves a giveaway?  Please let me know.  My sincere thanks!

March Giveaway!  Great articles and great
tutorial in these 3 issues!
Can you believe it my dear friends?  We have a February winner and March is tomorrow.  Where did the time go?  Have I squandered it? 

 Hope everyone is all well and finished with this Season's cold and flu.  My heart and prayers go out to those of you who are having a difficult time with the unusual weather we are experiencing in many parts of the world.  Yes, there are other issues much worse than the weather, but discussing it would surely produce another Blog.  No time for another blog because I need to finish my book I've been working on for the last 30 something years.

Speaking of books, there is a possibly that some of my brand new designed Wedding Gowns along with accessories will be shown in the June 2014 issue of American Miniaturist Magazine.  Jared and Mark J (you know who they are) have been busy creating new designs and it will be a real treasure to showcase them in American Miniaturist Magazine.  And if you are not already a subscriber, contact American Miniaturist Magazine and subscribe in time for the June issue.  

"I'm gonna try my luck with this so.. I would love to enter your beautiful draw - hope you'll count me in..Wish you all the best(^^) 
 MiniHugs, Irina"

Give Away! February 2014

Hello Blog Friends.  First of all I messed up on this post and deleted the previous post by mistake, but the comments are still here from the previous post.  I'll keep them that way and if you want to leave another comment, please do so.  Thank you kindly.  

My wish is that each of you are already back into the swing of making mini things.  It is great to be back with my dress give aways.  It feels like home again!  Thank you.

My grandsons are really appreciative of God giving us a New Year and they are enjoying themselves to the fullest.  We've already been to a Train Show this year and they took a ride on Amtrak to a fun nearby city and spent the weekend at a fabulous hotel!  My four year old just started a new school and he thinks he is so very smart.  He asked, "Daddy, are you going to pick up pizza tonight?"  Daddy answered, "Possibly." "Well, Dad is that a yes or no?"   

Wonderful creative ideas are sometimes hard to come by so I am changing the mannequin for this giveaway to a different style.  Hope you like it!

For those of you following my blog, all you have to do is leave an inspirational comment on this post only by the deadline to enter the drawing for  5 1/4 inch tall dressed mannequin in the above picture.  Your name will be put in my lucky hat and drawn by my grandson.  Winner announced the following week.  Let's have some fun!  Please keep checking back to take another look because I am feeling great right now and may "possibly" add another give away.
