The Meaning of Undersized Urbanite

I’m not going to lie, until recently I didn’t really fully understand what “undersized urbanite” meant in relation to the dollhouse contest.

Calico Critters: Introduction

I thought the time had finally come to share my Calico Critter obsession. Like everything on this blog, it comes with a story. 🙂 Last summer, one of my favourite Mini bloggers, Katie, from Katie’s Clay Corner, scored a really cute gypsy wagon on eBay.

Undersized Urbanite Update: Week 4

Hey! Guess what arrived in the mail this week?! My kit for the contest!!! Woot woot! Couldn’t be happier that I can actually begin to do some tangible, rather than digital, work. Can we pause for a moment to see how oh so tiny this house is?!?!? So small! Not sure what I have gotten […]

2012 in review

This isn’t really an accurate stat chart because of the fact that I switched blogs twice. But I enjoyed reading the outline WordPress gave to me that outlines my blog activity since I created “Mama’s Mini’s”. Enjoy!! The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: 600 people […]
