New arrivals April: Juice boxes, packed veggies, dinner sides and more!

Hello Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

I have to admit that I haven't been doing all the things that I said I was going to do. I took a week of this month and another week just spending time with my miniature collection and toys. Sometimes it feels like I have spent so much time making miniatures that everything else got left behind. It was nice to just relax and curate my collection for other toy collectors and dress up my dolls in new clothes.

I know a lot of miniaturists and artists who burn out after a few years and I really don't want that to happen to myself which is why I took some time off. There were too many projects pending and I didn't feel enthusiastic about finishing them since I always seem to get new ideas all the time. 

These new arrivals were uploaded on the website since last month so it's a bit like an Easter Egg if you managed to spot them before this post. First item is Juiceboxes which you can find in the Groceries menu. Perfect for kids and lunchboxes and straws are optional! The white miniature straw is actually wrapped in fine plastic packaging so you have the choice to have it glued on the back of the juicebox or loose. 

Juice-box comes in 3 different flavours

Straws are optional. Can come loose or glued to the back of the box

Made for cute 1:6 scale younger dolls
Our next new item is from the Fruits and Vegetables menu. We needed potatoes to make the Tornado Potato so I made extra and 1:12 scale versions.

The other new option you have with our Fruits and Vegetables is to have them packaged in clear plastic bags and sealed with green tape. We can do it with any fruit or vegetable but limited to the size of the bag. You can now create your own little market stall with our miniatures!

There is now a selection of 2 different sides to go with your miniature dinner food. They are available now in the Dinner menu so I should probably make more dishes to go with them! (my to-do list never ends).

Our macaroni and cheese comes in our own hand-made bowls so you can request the bowl in any colour. 1-2 servings of macaroni and cheese per bowl.

The Hasselback Potato is plain roasted with butter and seasoning but you can also request one with more herbs or cheese. Each layer of potato is so delicious and will go with any dish. That's not all! If you like our silverware in this photo, we are now selling them as well in the Tableware and Packaging menu. They are vintage Sindy cutlery and there are 7 different options from dessert spoon to butter knives (subject to availability).

I wanted to stock up the online Etsy store with more items so I updated the brownie à la mode, available now in the dessert menu. Each one comes with generous amounts of thick caramel sauce on top of vanilla ice cream.

Last but not least, I made boxes for our best-selling Lego blocks. It is listed in the Dollhouse Mini menu and would be the perfect miniature for a toy room or nursery. You can also order just the box without the bricks if it was going to sit on a dollhouse shelf.

You can customise the selection of colours of your bricks to make it your very own miniature
That's all for today. I am still planning to upload that new YouTube tutorial by this weekend and currently I've stopped making miniatures since I'm making 1:3 scale fake food instead! My collection of air-dry clay was piling up and they have to be used ASAP since it can dry out really quickly. I decided to dedicate my time this month making some new and some updated items from the 1:3 scale menu so I can finish up the air-dry clay. The weather is starting to feel warm and sunny again so there will be more new items to debut next month. 

See ya!
