The Trash to Treasure Queen!

Original de fb avatar

My name is Deana and I've been creating miniatures for over 20 years. I created my first dolls because my dollhouse seemed too empty without people to inhabit it. I've come a very long way since those first dolls made of shoestrings, pipe cleaners and wooden beads.

My "specialty" is making beautiful scale miniatures from items that are normally discarded.

I am a wife and mother of three young adults. I am an elementary school instructional assistant by day and a maker of miniatures by night. When the creative urge strikes, I've been known to stay up most of the night working on a miniature project.

You can see more of my work on my blog.
