Holiday Inc: Santas Workshop Complete

Good evening good folks!

This will be my last post till the new year and I will let you know after dragging my feet a bit I have completed Santa's workshop. I will tell you I got pretty lazy about the details at the end so it might be a bit messy in areas and my camera has pretty much seen its last days, but its finished enough to consider the rest next Christmas :P
I want to thank all of you great mini friends for the swaps and wonderful gifts you sent over the last year, you will notice your pieces are displayed here with lots of love and gratitude!
I hope your Holiday season goes well and you are happy and healthy!



Santa here was a last minuet creation, my daughter insisted I make a Santa so I threw him together with scraps of projects ..he has my failed Easter bunny body, the head I started a year ago and some pipe cleaners, pillow remnants etc...he turned out better than I thought!   
I hope you enjoyed this post, if you have questions about things in the shop, feel free to contact me or ask in comments.
Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year to you all!!


  1. AWESOME.....
    What a pretty tea cozie you have there Miss Jane! Your Santa and elves look great! Did you make the elves too? That daughter of yours had a great idea adding characters to the room. I know Santa likes hot coco and cookies but what do the elves eat? 8-P

    Merry Christmas my dear friend!!!

    1. Thanks Ms bee!

      Yes I smashed some clay into a few shapes some elves were the result ;P

      I placed candy for the elves, I do believe they go a solid 4 months hopped up on the stuff...then colonics....lollzzzz

  2. Your display is beautiful! I especially like the dollhouses and mini furniture! Your Santa looks great! Merry Christmas to you!

    1. Thanks hon, the dollhouse was by the wonderful Drora of

      She is a wonderful lady and a fine miniaturist!

  3. Santa is pretty great actually, I'm stunned he's a Fraken-creation! Bravo my dear on a beautiful and completed project, we all know how much work these are. Best wishes to you and yours for a safe and happy holiday,

    1. Thanks April, a wonderful holiday to you and your family as well!

  4. I think your Santa is the best!! Awesome workshop! Merry Christmas!

  5. There are so many great things about this scene! I think my top two favorites are the tree and the dollhouse shelving unit. I want to make a tree for my dollhouse and need just a few more materials. My tree has been a dollhouse-work-in-progress for about a year now, haha. Maybe one Christmas it will be done! I also have been eyeing dollhouse shelves but in real-life size. I think it would be so much fun to store all my miniature supplies on! Happy Holidays Jane! :)

    1. Thank you hon, The tree is just lycopodium and bottlebrush easy to do! This house has sat over a year so don't fret the time ;)

      Happy Holidays to you an yours ;)

  6. Love the workshop, elves & Santa! Great job on this festive scene.
    Merry Christmas!

  7. Hello Jane! Your Christmas Scene is lovely and what a collection of holiday items you have within it! Your Santa with the bunny body looks really good and I love the way his red suit is trimmed with the white "faux fur" chenille pipe cleaner. How very clever you are Jane! But Santa and his elves, had better step it up with the toy production. Only 2 days left to go and then its "HO HO HO!"
    Merry Christmas Jane and all the Very Best in the coming New Year!:D


  8. Dear Jane
    It is a wonderful fine Christmas box you made, and with so many lovely and wonderful fine things in. Your Santa Claus is so very nice, his expression is a real Santa Claus, and his little helpers are also so wonderfulit. It was a good idea your daughter came with.
    Jane, I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

  9. A wonderfully busy Christmas scene with lots of your fabulous hand made minis. Best wishes for a lovely Christmas and a creative 2014.

  10. Another lovely project finished.... well, as finished as a miniature scene can ever be. I think most of us have so many ideas that we keep adding to all our creations, even though we thought that we were finished :)
    I truly can't wait what you come up with next year!! :D

    Happy holidays to you and your loved ones!!

  11. Bellissima scena Jane! Merry Christmas!

  12. Your Santa is the best! I like Santas workshop; everything is perfect.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours and Happy 2014.

  13. Ах, Джейн! Замечательная Рождественская сцена! Так много подарков от друзей! Ваш Санта выглядит прекрасно! Он и его помощники заняты делом!:):):)
    Счастливого Рождества и Нового года!

  14. Oh Wow! Santa with his rabbit's legs made me laugh and imagine a rabbit with Santa's legs. This Santa
    is great. I also love his cute helpers.
    Now I understand why you needed toys in our swaps. Good use, and a wonderful box.
    Merry Christmas to you my dear friend and to your family!
    Hugs, Drora
