Minis beim RealMy first news won't be that interesting to most of you since only German doll fans can get this. The supermarket chain "Real,-" has a new special event where you get collectable random items as a bonus to your shopping. This time it's "Real,- Minis", which are miniature versions of items they sell at their stores. Yes, they look much bigger on the posters with the little boy but in reality most of them fit a 1:6 dollhouse perfectly!

Of course these items can't be compared to Re-ment in quality, most of them are just cardboard boxes and of course it's advertizing of actual products. But they are for free and look really good in a doll kitchen, be it Pullip, Barbie or Monster High, and will look neat in my planned supermarket diorama too.

Some items are too large, as evidenced by the Kerry Gold butter and Fa soap. The chocolate bar is also rather a family pack. But as Giselda promptly stated: "I don't mind the size at aaaaall!" *munch* :)
Most things have - as you can see - a really nice size!

 

Now for the website news.

For a day I played around with various Joomla modules but couldn't find anything nice to add. I would have liked to add a shoutbox and an overview of new articles to turn these news into a nicer illustrated news blog. But there wasn't anything that I liked which also did what it should. I will find a way to show the newest articles so you don't miss out on new tutorials, stories etc, since I will write quite a few in the near future. As nice as photos are, a website should also come with texts. :)

There are still new pics in the galleries, I was busy with the sewing machine.

Graphics tabletsAs already mentioned I got a new graphics tablet. I couldn't exercise properly with it yet since the new Intuos Pro was too prone to scratching for my taste and I ordered a display protection foil right away. That finally arrived and now I can start exercising and also work more with the Manga Studio software. I hope that my husband will be able to put some of the most important functions on the tablet buttons this weekend, that would be perfect.
Here is a badly made comparison photo between my old tablet and the new one (still without foil).
