New Easter miniatures for 2014

The first day of 2014 is here. I was hoping to be able to go for a lovely long stroll in the cold winter sunshine and walk off some of those over indulgences of the last couple of weeks. However there is no lovely winter sunshine today but dark grey skies, gale force winds and horizontal heavy rain outside which kind of puts me off venturing outside. Hopefully the weather will pick up for the weekend and I'll get my stroll then.

Today I have decided to work on my miniatures instead while listening to Birdsong! By Birdsong I mean the channel Birdsong that you get on digital radio stations. If you close your eyes when listening to this you can totally imagine you are back in the middle of summer in a meadow somewhere. This channel completely chills me out and if I'm feeling a little stressed it really helps. Does anyone else like this channel or even know about it, I can thoroughly recommend it.

Anyway back to the miniatures. In the photo above you will see my latest Easter items I have made over the last couple of days. I have listed them in my Etsy shop today so take a peek if you're interested. I relly love making little white bunny rabbits (as you can probably tell) and have added them to teapots to give them a cutesy look. I'm going to be making many more over the coming weeks and will have white rabbit wreaths, more teapots, shelving..etc. I think Easter is my favourite time to sculpt for as I feel so inspired by Spring (I'm sure I've said in the past that Halloween was my favourite time, or was it Christmas? Anyway now it's Spring). Anyway the weather is still miserable outside so I'm going to head off back to my desk and create some more miniature wonders. I hope where ever you are you are having better weather than me and are getting out and enjoying the fresh air.
