In my defense it's been a very busy start to 2013 for me. I have been running an online workshop for Minis4All during February on using LEDs in miniature projects which has been very successful and I have also had an interview with Kirsten Miller of UK Handmade for her "Inspire: The Road Less Travelled" series. You can read more about both of these events below.
I also have some very exciting news! After a successful trial in the LED workshop I have been working hard on improving my lighting kits for smaller scale houses - 1/48th & 1/144th. I am hoping to have the new prototype kit ready this week with the kits available for sale very soon! If you would like more information please contact me: jsminiatures @ gmail.com (please remove space before and after the '@').

I also wrote a "Beginners Guide to LEDs" with all the basics so that the ladies could understand how LEDs worked.
The workshop is very much aimed at those who usually get their husbands to do the electrics but would very much like to have a go themselves. It's really not that complicated, it just seems scary! I'm not an electronics expert so there's no complicated mumbo jumbo!

Inspire: The Road Less Travelled.... Interview
Kirsten Miller of Quernus Crafts started doing a series of interviews 2 years ago with people, like her, who have given up their day job (whether through choice or circumstance) and who want to share their story. The series is called: "The Road Less Travelled".
