Published in Miniaturas!!

This has to be one of the most amazing things that has happened to me in my life. My dollhouse and miniature garden have been published in the October issue of the Spanish magazine Minaturas.

This pic is the first two pages which open out and...
Ta daaa! My dollhouse is a four page centrefold! LOL!!!
Click on the pics to enlarge them.

My copy of the magazine hasn't arrived here yet but I asked my friend Meli in Spain to send me pics to show me my work in the magazine. And there was even more than I expected, what a wonderful surprise!!
I'm so overwhelmed, who would have thought that little old me sitting here at the bottom of the world having fun with a dollhouse would one day be published!
Many thanks to Madelva from Miniaturas who made this happen.
And for those of you who have been wondering even though my name is very Spanish there is not a drop of Spanish blood in me and I do not speak any Spanish!
