Happy Easter 2014!


Happy Easter everyone!

As you may know, I just got back from 2 weeks away in China.

The trip throughout China (starting in Hong Kong, then Guilin, Xi-an, Beijing, Shanghai and back in Hong Kong) was so wonderful and inspiring that there will DEFINITELY be some Chinese miniatures in progress soon...

So - the online Hummingbird Miniatures Etsy shop is back online and business has been resumed as usual.

Have a lovely weekend and wishing you a Happy Easter from Hummingbird Miniatures!

Before the Bakery Closes...


In case you missed my latest update (here), just wanted to let you know that my online Hummingbird Miniatures shop is going to close in a few days as I am flying to China for a 2 week vacation to visit my brother who lives out there.


So... the shop is here and if you hurry you can get your Easter orders in (Easter range is here) and don't forget to use the discount code (details here).

And don't miss out on any of the NEW tiny new breads and pastries, as shown above....!





Aside from miniature breads and Easter miniatures, if you want to hear about what's going on in my miniature filmic world, then I wrote an update on my other blog here in which I talk about how miniatures are used in filmmaking today... ;)

Preparing for Easter...


A couple of years ago I came up with fluffy plush toy chicks in one inch scale miniature, as well as plush toy Easter bunnies. They were pretty popular so this year, even though I didn't have much time to create a new Easter Range as such, I have made many many more Easter chicks! Take a look at my 'work in progress' photo below.

Here are some of my Easter items which are also available this year. There are a few Easter bunnies left and only ONE Easter cake left. After that this cake design will be discontinued.


*** IMPORTANT SHOP ANNOUNCEMENT ***

My online Hummingbird Miniatures Etsy shop will be closed for 2 weeks starting on April 2nd (so that's only 6 days away...) because I am flying to Hong Kong for a vacation. So get your Easter orders in ASAP!

To get things moving, I am offering a 10% discount for Easter items only. That means you can pick up a fluffy little chick or two for only $10.80. Just enter the coupon code CHICKS after you click to buy but before you pay. 10% will automatically be deducted from your entire order, but not shipping.
Note - this is to be used on all Easter items only. :)

New Bread Range Listed!


It was ages ago that I blogged about my new bread range ('in the making'), and finally I've had time to photograph it, write about it here and make it all available at my online Etsy shop here!

So, take a look at my handmade one inch scale (1:12) breads... from ciabatta, two kinds of baguettes, sourdough loaves and mini rolls, pumpernickel, olive bread and more...

Don't forget to follow this blog and also like the Facebook page in order to get updates and be able to comment / ask questions. :)

PS Tomorrow I'll share photos from the miniature Hummingbird Bakery...

Pastries, pastries, pastries!


If you check my online Hummingbird Miniatures Etsy shop you'll notice that this morning 9 different kinds of pastries have been added to the Bakery Section.

Everything has been handmade by myself without the use of molds, and in tiny 1:12 (one inch scale) with great care to realism and detail. Each one took me a long time to make!

There are...
Apricot danishes, croissants, cheese danishes, croissants decorated with icing, apple turnovers, french hearts, pain au chocolat, cinnamon swirls and pain au chocolat decorated with chocolate icing.

Take a look at the fun photos I took during the week, and if you'd like some then hop over to my shop and find them sold individually (just change the quantity for more, or you can mix and match) and purchase whilst they are introduced at a low price. *Note - the price will rise in a few days time. *

Do you remember when I blogged about tiny detailed miniature pastries (here) and a new line of bread I'd made (here)...? Well it was about a year ago - so you probably don't remember!

I FINALLY had the chance to start photographing these ranges today. So I'll finish taking pictures and you can start to look for them over at the Hummingbird Miniatures Etsy shop. I'll mention it here and at my Facebook page before then as well!

PS Thanks so much to everyone that took advantage of my sale last weekend!
