Tutorials: How To Make Your Own Advent Calendar. Over 40 Tutorials!

I figured as December is upon us that it was time to start thinking about advent calendars. Whilst hunting for a full size one to make for our family, I stumbled across some dolls house miniature ones too. Here are the links:

1. 12th Scale Printable Advent Calendar by Victoria Stitch

2. 12th Scale Printable Advent Calendar by Stello's Mini Stuff

Anyway, I then got onto full scale tutorials and have found over 40. Please enjoy my article entitled 40+ Advent Calendar Tutorials over on

Clarification and 30 dolls house miniature tutorials

Firstly I thought I should clarify something. In the 6 years that I took a break from making miniatures, I got interested in other crafts. In that time I've found a lot of tutorials ready for the day I decided to open the site again.

I've had an email from someone who was disappointed that the wreath tutorials that I published yesterday weren't miniature. I will alternate the tutorial posts with miniature ones for all the loyal readers from 6 years ago. Don't worry, I've not gone off miniatures!

So, the article yesterday was 60+ Autumn Wreath Tutorials but todays is miniature related. So please check out 30+ Dolls House Miniature Animal Tutorials

An Update. icklebits Tutorials Are Returning!

Well, its been an absolute nightmare of a year! My website got hacked earlier this year, the back up on my external hard drive was damaged and then the back up by the host was corrupted too! I lost years of tutorials, photos, products, text, articles etc. Absolute nightmare.
I walked away from it for quite a while but this last month decided it was time to face the facts and get rebuilding. I've changed a bit since you last saw a blog post. I now cater for all crafts with regards to the tutorials. This is due to me trying out new crafts in the 6 years I've been doing the Mummy thing.

The shop that will be launched in 2015 will stock Dolls House Miniatures, the miniatures that I made, beads, craft supplies and my own die cuts. Unfortunately due to all the mess of earlier this year, I'm having to rephotograph, measure, describe and list everything. This is why I say it will be next year.

I'm all over social networks now too. Below are some links:

Join icklebits on Facebook (icklebits)
Join icklebits on Twitter (icklebits)
Join icklebits on Pinterest (icklebitscrafts)

I shall be adding more tutorials daily to the website. Pinterest will be where I share random tutorials that I find BEFORE they appear in blog posts on the website. Anyway, it will be great to hear from you all again and I look forward to reading your comments.
