I’ve been doing miniatures for over 20 years. And I’m not that old! (42 … no, wait 43 this year). I did it as a hobby for 7 years, then opened a retail store called The Miniature Scene in San Jose, CA in 2003. It was an amazing, wonderful experience! I had to close the store in 2006. (sad face) But I can’t shut up about miniatures so I’ve started writing this blog.
I love everything about miniatures – the collecting, the making, and the people! There are so many inspiring artists. I am the most inspired by:
- unusual containers
- placing your creations on display all over your home
- incorporating miniatures into your home decor
My name used to be Kim Walter. Then I moved to Texas, met my husband and changed it to Kim Chaplin. So people know me by both of those names in the dollhouse miniatures world – if you think you’ve met me at a miniatures show, you probably have. It is a “small world” after all. 😉
