Hitting the Ground Running in 2014 - "The Little Show"

New year. New things. It's good. 2013 wasn't great, so we're going to MAKE 2014 great. Starting here.

The four of us: Hitty Bertine Simmons, Hitty Rosabelle Kleider, Eve Woodlee, and myself, have been asked to make stuff to sell at the 23rd annual "Little Show" held by the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys.

We'll be representing Norm's Dollhouse at the show, so naturally that's where we went for our meeting.

I do look cute holding a meeting, don't I?

Eve Woodlee said she and the rest of the Woodlees were 100% behind this, and some of them would even be coming along to look for new homes!

Hitty Bertine had some suggestions of things she and Hitty Rosabelle could make together.

And Hitty Rosabelle had some ideas and good suggestions too, even though she has ZERO interest in actually attending the show. I think she may be a little afraid of "disappearing" like poor Hitty Sequoia.

Lenore stayed home instead of attending our meeting, but she and I already discussed what she would be making for the show. She's going to be a HUGE help! (Pun not intended)

It was a really great meeting. Lots of great ideas. I can't tell you about them yet, 'cause I don't want to spoil the surprise. But I'll show you stuff as we get it made and ready to go.

After the meeting, we all just went and wandered around Norm's.

It can be hard to find Hitty sized things in a miniature shop (most things are a little too little) but Hitty Bertine found herself just the perfect swing to hang out on in the "Fairy Garden" area.

Hitty Rosabelle wanted to go visit the Lace House for some reason. She didn't say why. Pretty house, I can't blame her.

And Eve wanted to go see the last three Woodlee children looking to be adopted at Norm's. I think she was really happy to see them.

They seemed just as happy to see her. She told them that if they haven't been adopted by the show in February, they can come to the show with us and they'll be SURE to find homes there. Hopefully she's right.

And me. I snuggled up in the weirdest looking but strangely comfortable chair in the whole shop, just to sit back and relax a minute.

I think this may just be the deep breath before the plunge. This is going to be an awesome year for the Wylde Kingdom AND Woodlee Junction. I just have a feeling. Now to get busy making stuff!!!!

Hope your year is off to an awesome start too!!! Any new undertakings you're starting? Do you do resolutions? Like what?

  1. It all sounds very exciting. I'm helping with crochet toys, but nothing else yet. There's noise of big changes so the houses and shops can be set in order in a new area of Taw Wood, but it scary to think of all the preparation. We don't talk about it.

  2. I am sure you will have a wonderful and successful year. Sounds like you have lots of plans already.

    All the best for a happy and healthy New Year.

  3. Yes you do look cute holding a meeting!!! And you all put your coats on the coat rack, how well behaved :-)
    Sounds exciting and looking forward to your ideas!

  4. Hey NyXyz! Oooh, big changes sounds exciting, if a bit scary! Keep me posted! I can't wait to hear about it! And even though moving stuff around is a big ol' pain in the neck, it'll be worth it! Also, Crochet Toys = awesome. :)

    Thank you, Serenata! I hope so. We do have plans, but it can be difficult getting everyone on the same page. The best laid plans of mice and pixies often go awry. We'll see, but I'm pretty hopeful! I hope you have a great New Year too! I wish you health, wealth and all things awesome!

    Hey Veronique! Thank you! Well, and if we make a big mess while hanging out at Norm's, they won't let us hang out there anymore. I can't wait to show you what we're doing! We've got a lot to get ready by February 15th, but we can do it! Happy New Year! Talk to you soon!

  5. Fairy garden stuff is great for us Hittys - it's where some of my living room furniture came from.

    Can't wait to see what you come up with for the show.
    *Waves to Bertine*

    All of this sounds so exciting, Miri! I can't wait to see all the amazing things you'll be blogging about this year. :)


  7. Hey Caroline! A bunch of the fairy garden stuff we've got is super tiny, and too small for even ME (some small fairies out there, I guess). But some of it is just right for you Hitty types. We're just going to have to find more of it! Bertine says "hi" back. I can't convince her to get her own email, but that's okay. I don't mind relaying messages. :)

    Hey Lily! So far, so good! It's pretty exciting, and lots of stuff going on! Hopefully I'll have lots of cool stuff to tell you about in 2014! Thanks for wanting to read about it! :)
