At last: Mini-nut draw

You know you're a mini-nut when:

you collect everything you earlier used to throw away, and you think, there is something mini there

you steal your children's toys to use in your own dollhouse

You put your minis in the microwave

if you gather all kind of trash in your hut

your tradesman partner brings in all sorts of crap from his van or work and says, could you use this in your crazy mini hobby?

you beg to peal off the colored silver wrappings off your friends, chocolates and put it in your purse. Or when You don't use the paper napkin with tiny flower prints at their dinner table and take it home instead.

you start putting minis before your real house and feel like a hoarder

your husband has finally given in and began saving the bits and pieces for you.

you start rifling through the neighbor's garbage for possible miniature-making doohickeys

you must thoroughly inspect all garbage before it leaves the house for possible miniature-making doohickeys.

you go through the recycle trash each week before collection day!"

You look things over very carefully before throwing anything out and wonder if I can use it somehow, the process takes awhile because my mind has to run through everything that is used in a home..

todo lo que ves le pones utilidad para usarlo en las minis.....

ves algo de la vida cotidiana que se puede convertir en algo en miniatura

llego a la casa de alguna amiga o familiar que tiene hijos y observo sus juguetes para pedir regaladas aquellas cositas que pueden servirme

There were 15 people who finished the sentence; 9 who also put a link on their blog (and thus got 2 entries); and 3 who put a link on their blog but didn't,t finish the sentence.

I didn't,t resort to fancy random numbers. I did it the old-fashioned way. Bits of paper in bowl. My one innovation was to put a piece of Scmacko in the bowl and let Molly fish it out.

Which she did, along with a winner.

And the winner is GINGER LOLA!

Please send me a mailing address for you.
