Stress Builds

About a month or so ago, my mom fell and had to go to the hospital for a week and then a rehab place for two weeks. I was so worried! (She is home now and doing very well. Better than she was before, even!).

To keep myself calm while I fretted about her, I built some easy and adorable kits. Very soothing.

All of these are microscale or 1/144 (1/12″ of 1/12″)

A “Secret Book”. I love these. A little room slides out from the “book.” This is a Robin Betterley. I collect the kits (which are inexpensive) and do them when I need a stress break.

I have a thing for books. This kit is by Desert Mini Makers–she has now retired. I bought two of these kits from her Etsy shop when she discontinued everything, and decided to make this one. The books are resin (3D printed), and I painted and covered with the art. She even provided a little clear plastic cube for display.

I can make or hunt up a microscale table and chairs to create a sidewalk cafe.

Last, this microscale house in Robin Betterley’s mini shops series called “Watercolors.” I have all the shops! (a bakery, a garden shop, and this one, a children’s shop.)

The kit comes with everything in these phots, and is fairly simple to put together.

I have the newest one too (Lavender Lane), though I haven’t built it yet. Saving it for next stress time!

  1. I’m happy that your mother is doing fine. This is such a bad moment for been in an hospital especially if you aren’t young. But everything went well and I understand your worries and now your relief.
    Tiny miniatures are so fascinating and you did a meticulous work!
