Recently I saw an ad in a Bed Bath and Beyond flyer for a wooden building toy called Slotto.  The first thing I thought of course is that I could make some pretty cool mini things with this.toy, then I thought my son would have fun building things with it too.


After I bought the set, I looked it up online to see if there were any reviews on it.  There weren't any, but I did find out some cool info on it.  It was created by a man who had lost his job and would stand on the street corner in a suit jacket holding a sign that said "I need a job".  You can read it here and see a video here. It is currently for sale at Bed Bath and Beyond and Overstock.com in the U.S. and Canada and should be available soon at more retailers. I would recommend Bed, Bath and Beyond because they always have coupons and this set only cost me $15.00.  It looks like a pretty cool toy for both my son and I.

New Modern Fireplace

Just a short post.  I just finished making this modern battery operated fireplace.  It doesn't have wood to burn but rather clear crystals.  I got the flicker fire bulbs and coin cell battery pack from Evans Designs.  It's so easy to use!

Happy Miniing and have a great weekend!

SD-1 Mini Models

So, the other day I was looking for modern minis on Etsy and came across these very cool little paper architectural models from SD-1 Architects.  They are small only about 4" tall, but oh so cool!

If you like architecture or modern minis, these are something you might want check out. Which one is your favorite?
