I was first introduced to miniatures by my great grandfather, Jacob C. Knupp, who designed and built my first dollhouse when I was five. I had no idea then how BIG this hobby would become. There are so many resources, ideas and products available today. This isn't your pink plastic little girl's toys. Every craft project can be duplicated in smaller scales, anything you can make in real life has been duplicated in miniature. Miniatures are a reflection of the world we live in. They can duplicate the past, the present and our dreams for the future. They give us the chance to have the things we can't afford in real life, and a way to show off our talents and test our skills. Take a look for yourself.
