It’s week 3 of the 6-week countdown! I will announce the winner of last week’s giveaway, but first I want to share Storm in 3-D, miniature style!
One of the ways I connect with my characters is by creating scenes from my books using dollhouse miniatures. I build these scenes from scratch, using kits and materials from craft stores.
Many of the miniatures themselves are custom built or hand made and sometimes I even paint the dolls to resemble my characters. Last year, 3 of my scenes were on display at the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls & Toys. You can find photos of all three of my miniature, book-inspired scenes HERE.
Storm recently moved and is slow to unpack. He works at a second hand store and enjoys skateboarding with his best friend, Thomas. Storm loves electronics and woodworking. He likes to modify and alter gadgets of all shapes and sizes.
Storm is contemplating which project to work on and whether or not to tell his crush, Kelly, that he likes her.
The posters, moving box, bedding, closet doors and Rubik’s cube were all handmade by me. Note the modified backpack with skateboard logo, iPod, Rubik’s cube, circuit boards, sandpaper, rolled up movie posters, shoebox and case of Mountain Dew.
And the winner of last week’s giveaway is…
