I'm leaving for holidays very soon and will be in Berlin from the 4th to the 26th of August.
I'll close my different shops during my absence.
I did some very fun cans with a wonderful tutorial from Marlie. I did the flowers as well, from kits by bonnielavish.com very fun and quite easy :)
And before I'm totally leaving I put this very summery board in my etsy shop.

Chateau de Chambord
Today we went to 'France Miniature', it's a park near Paris where all the French monuments are shown in little. Rather fun for a miniaturist like me!
The monuments are placed on a gigantic map of France, and you walk inside this map through the biggest monuments.
There are 116 different and it took us about 4 hours to see everything.
Here are a few pictures I've taken there.
Maison Carrée - Nîmes
Port de St Tropez
Mont St Michel
NEW BLOG LAYOUT
Besides, I finally changed the blog layout to a template that I should keep for a while as it's soooo darn flexible!
Of course, I didn't write it. I probably could but that would cost me lost of time so I just prefer taking free templates.

"Poulet frites" is in France a very popular and typical food that you eat on Sundays.
Chicken is roasted in the oven and served with fries (or chips for our UK friends) and a vegetable, mostly peas or green beans.

So I just ordered the postcards, choosing 4 of the 5 and adding one new to it.
Finally the order of the 'poll' is:
1. Fruit Bowls
2. Raspberry Cake
And I added the 'shabby chic' view which you may see above.
I received some vintage dollhouse furniture today, so I played a bit with photos.
And I also changed the banner of my blog and of my etsy shop.

Ok, so I'm totally in (who knew??) because I want to sell some postcards! (yeah everyone's doing it and I just can't resist the urge to see my photos on postcards)
But I'm not sure of the impact of simple pieces of paper in the world wide web, so I'm showing you the 5 designs I've chosen, knowing that I'm willing to print 3 of it.
So I really need your help! I know I have 193 followers, so I want to see 193 comments on which to choose!
So just let me know the 3 you could imagine buying or offering.
Thanks in advance!

Two are from previous swaps, but I didn't wrote about them: the little notebook in blue from Kreativlink and the adorable flowers (I put them in my hair) from Ingermaaike.
I also won the June giveaway red orange flower earrings from ZsbCreations.
And I bought myself flowers kits from bonnielavish.com, a pair of earrings from Munieca and some puki and lati white clothes from Spampy Stuff.
First 'surprise I've got is absolutely a-m-a-z-i-n-g beyond words!!

So this is a double challenge for me, first for the EST challenge hosted by iragrant. The theme is 'favorite color(s)'. I have actually two favorite colors, raspberry and blue. So I choose raspberry for this one.
The second challenge was to make a new range/style of pendants for my shop. This one is the very first.
I also did another with a sandwich preparations, which is fun as well
So far I don't know when I'm going to list them as they are still OOAK and I love them *___*

Before I forget to show you, here a a carnival set custom order. I loved making the mini popcorn and did an extra one for my shop who sold overnight. Making candies is always lots of fun and the candy apples were so cute!
I still have some candies available in my etsy shop.

Ice cream!! I love it! Now that the summer is here, ice cream is probably the most demanded absolutely useless and unhealthy food :)
My personal favorites are chocolate and all red fruits (raspberry, strawberry, cassis)
I also like mango and passions fruit a lot :)
And I'm very ok with vanilla if there's some chocolate sauce on it (with banana slices it's perfect!)
And now I'm happily hungry, and there's no ice cream at home except the inedible ones...

Kheops is our new adorable bunny. My BF's father gave it to us from a farm where they got many little bunnies which they were giving away.
We don't know if it's a female or a male, but the most important is that the new family member is already very curious and seems comfortable at home :)

So I made some non food earrings. I only made one pair of the little tree earrings and 2 of the panda earrings. I keep each one pair of tree and panda for myself. I will probably put one pair of panda earrings in my etsy shop and see if someone gets them or not.
Besides I also made an entry for the EST challenge 'Dots' hosted my StarOfTheEast on her blog.
I made two little vanilla cakes covered with sugar icing and bonbons.

Sushi, nothing new so to speak, but I like this image and it will go in my etsy shop as soon as I decide if I sell two of the plates in one listing or just one plate... decisions!
Anyway, as you all may know, I had to present my project at the school yesterday. Of course time was too short and I knew I would pass it in September anyway, but the presentation went good - I still pass in September BUT- they really liked my project.
Not that I care that much, but at least I don't have to re-do the general shape, it's just about finishing the documents that were missing. (and believe me I need a LOT of motivation and help for that!)
Besides I would like to REMIND you that my BIRTHDAY is the 19th of July. SO very very soon.
So if you really WANT to offer me something, please do so! I love gifts :D
Ok, now off to work on minis! I'm far beyond everything in that domain!
