A short time after I returned home from Calgary and had checked in with my Mom, I received a phone call from my friend and neighbour, Jeanne. Her friends, Shirley and Evelyn, were visiting and Jeanne and Shirley (who had seen them before) had tried to explain my miniatures to Evelyn. They were unsuccessful so wanted to come down and show her what I do.
I certainly hadn't done any housework since I got home Friday with groceries for Mom and did some cooking for her...not to mention getting up at 4 this morning for the trip to Calgary!
But I asked them down anyway, having warned Jeanne.
And they were lovely, perfect guests who enjoyed my miniatures and ignored the mess!
It is such a joy to show off my miniatures. Mostly, I just let people look around and comment. Occasionally, I point out things that I'm particularly proud of.
Jeanne is one of my most enthusiastic cheerleaders! And I thank her for that. She always tells about her great/grand nephew Carter's enthusiasm for my tiny printed books and the book that I made for Megan and Carter about their trip to France. I actually had one copy of that book left to show Shirley and Evelyn.
Most people ask if I sell my things. I don't! However, these days, I find I'm making things for family members or as gifts for groups I belong to, such as our Potluck Dinner group in the condo. Jeanne won the first of those that I offered.
