Hi, my name is Laura and I am the voice behind Life in Mini. I started blogging in 2008 on my food blog, Family Spice where I share recipes I have created for my family of five.
I left my career in advertising and graphic design to stay home with my three kids. As they are now teenagers and young adults, I find that I miss those days when I could get crafty with them.
My fascination with miniatures began when I was a child. My father is an avid rail roader and I suppose he gave me the mini bug. When I was young, he built my first dollhouse from a kit. He left all the other work from shingles to electricity and furniture building to me.
Boy would Pinterest and the internet have been useful back then!
Needless to say, that old dollhouse never got finished until I had a daughter of my own. And now that she is in high school, I am using this blog to refurbish the dollhouse and share all the fun miniatures I have built for it.
From clay food to accessories, I hope to show you how easy it is to fall in love with miniatures and create a modern miniature dollhouse that will be loved by any generation.
