Life in Calico Valley

I went to the doctor yesterday and found out I have an ear infection.  No wonder I was in pain lately!  Well now that I know why and taking the right medecine, I am hoping it will get better and I'll be in top shape for Christmas.  I have been working on my Christmas Village and after much delay, I can finally post my first pictures.
Since my village will be mostly about Sylvanian Families aka Calico Critters, I have created a new blog to post stories and pictures about them.  You can visit my blog here: LIFE IN CALICO VALLEY
I have not been able to work on anything else but the story so I still need to work on the layout, background etc.

My first story has now been posted: A SURPRISE FOR NIBBLES 
I actually wasn't ready to post the story yet because I was not totally happy with my pictures but I know I will not have much more time left until Christmas.  And being sick means I probably will be nursing myself back to health this weekend.
And to be honest, I'll never ever be satisfied with my photoshoots LOL so I might as well post them :P  I always find something I want to redo or add, etc. 

I want to say a particular thank you to Wyrna from the blog A Fairy Tale Come True because she has sent me gorgeous miniature gift box from her miniature shop!  You can see those box in my story but her display (click HERE to see) is far more beautiful!!!

I hope you will like my Christmas story!

Enjoy your weekend everybody!
