Where does inspiration come from? Combine one joking conversation about a shrink gun, a 144th scale room box and a moderator's picture with the talents of Sue in CT to get "Caught in the Act," her entry in the last CDHM Contest, What is Haunting Haunted Hollow? CDHM Tidbits dollhouse miniature news, Sue in CT

Sue's delightful finished work depicts a cauldron, shrinking powder, a perfect replica of the room box and a beautifully sculpted witch in the likeness of one of our moderators! Proving, once again, inspiration for miniatures is everywhere!

Informed sources have let slip that said moderator now keeps a framed picture of "Caught in the Act" over her workspace!

Table for two, please!

Karim's specialty is creating worlds where his playmobile people live, laugh, and play. He also has been posting short photographic stories depicting such events as The Birthday Party, Autumn Harvest, There is Magic in the Air, and A Christmas Miracle on Regent St. to the delight of his followers. Maybe the next installment will be a Valentine?

Jody lost her dear kitty "Priss" this past November;

Linda lost her pet chicken "Pretty Pretty Girl" who was more daughter than pet, and;
