Miniature Collector Dollhouse Magazine April 2011

Last night, I went to the Grocery store to pick up a few items. I have not been having the best of weeks this week. It's a Long complicated story and I would not want t bore you with it all but, the fact was that I was moody (OK and craving chocolate VERY badly, not a good combo LOL).

I decided to walk down the Magazine isle to see if they had any new Miniature Magazines for sale. Last month, I missed getting a copy of the Miniature Collector magazine. There were only a few copies when I went the beginning of the month but, when I went back the next week, they had sold out so I was not gonna make that mistake again.

It's funny but every month I look and hope that there will be more than just one Publishing company offering their Dollhouse magazines at the stores but no, only my Faithful Miniature Collector Magazine is there all alone every month so I scanned the cover quickly (because I was being rushed by someone) and off I went to start my food shopping.

When I got home, I decided to do a quick scan of the Magazine (you know, look at the pictures) and then read it the next day. I got to page 6 and saw my name! Someone asked a Question under "Readers, Forum" about if there were any Paperclay tutorials published by any one. It said something along the line that "Master dollhouse makers are using this material" and then the lady Emily  mentioned my dollhouse she found on Flickr by me. This is the picture She shared the link too:

Miniature Collector mentioned the May 2000 article that Rik Pierce (who is my Mentor/Teacher and who I learned my techniques from) did for them. The Editor also mentioned that the issue could be back ordered.

You Can order that magazine article by going to Scott's Publications and you can click "back issues" or even purchase a subscription. Also, if you search my blog using the search feature, you'll be surprised at how many tutorials, I have added and blogged about. One of them can be found here within this blog 
You can use the exact same steps to apply the clay to a house, fireplace, walkway or anything else. Hope this helps anyone looking to start on the path of creating their own scenes with Paperclay. Please share the link to pictures of your paperclay items!

I fell off the boat regarding working out this week. I only worked out one day. This week, my schedule has been interrupted by real life issues that has important deadlines that must be met or the sky will fall down lol. Today, the plan is to do Turbo Fire before I get sidetracked. (Like as soon as I finish this blog entry).

Thank You for choosing to read my blog & Welcome to my new Subscribers who are following my blog entries!!
