Oh my goodness! There is so much to share today...it has been a very busy week in mini world! Firstly, the 2013 Miniatures Readers Choice Awards Nominations have opened! This is a great opportunity for all of you to support or promote your favourite blog about miniatures. There are several categories to choose from. Last years winner Caseys Minis was no surprise as she keeps a wonderful rhetoric about the adventures of Tessie and Zar mixed in with making miniatures. You can read more here and follow the links to nominate: http://miniatures.about.com/od/Readers-Choice/tp/2013-Readers-Choice-Awards-Miniatures.htm?nl=1. Nominations close February 11th and Voting begins February 19th.
Chrystal's Designs on Miniature Knitting ; Mini Fanaticus who's blog is quite a read! Minworks from Canada (another lady with a great sense of humour!) Linda from The Hard Way also had me in hysterics as I read her blog. Linda is another competitor in the Undersized Urbanite contest. Some of you will be familiar with Linda's Etsy shop La Petite Moderne. Anna from Anna's Miniatures (formerly My Miniatures) has been busy making wallpaper from mini book pages! Maria from Maria's Minis has some great tutorials on her blog and is well worth linking your own blog to. I lastly want to give a special mention to Ruth from Miniature Maven Diaries who has started her own miniature perfume range. Ruth has spent some months planning this new venture and I am sure that we all wish her success!
And finally, just in case you missed the best announcement of all for 2013, I am heading off to the Chicago International show in April! OMG! So excited! Emails have been pouring in from fellow bloggers such as Maureen from St Albert Minis, Adrian Cooper who I did a swap with earlier in the year, and quite a few Mini Jazzi hostesses! It will be a very hectic week not only seeing the show, but meeting everyone! It is also the 10th Anniversary for yahoo group THE CAMP. I have met some amazing miniaturists through this group and their helpfulness and generosity is fantastic. I am very lucky to be sharing a room at the Chicago Marriot (where all the action is) with fellow Camper Lin Morrison also from Canada.
Hugs to all and see everyone again on Monday for the next Mini Link Party!
