My Re-Ment Miniatures Habit

I love my siblings!!! What's this, you say? I just got a package of Re-Ments from my sister who recently went on trip to Japan. Look at all of this! I never got this much Re-Ments all in one shot!

If that wasn't enough, my brother also went to Japan (separately) and hooked me up with more Re-Ments, the grocery shelves and cabinet:
So here is my awesome Re-Ment grocery aisle, I love looking at it and re-arranging the foods and signs. It stands about 8 inches tall:
One of my mom's friends came over and saw my toys and asked if they were from my childhood. I said, "Umm, no000 I just got that the other day!" Hahah! And then she found out I was a children's book illustrator and it finally made sense to her. My profession is a lovely excuse to have toys around and get away with it.

I'm so thankful for having siblings who feed my habits. And also those of you who send me chicken links and chicken things!

Thank you for everyone's comments on The Haunted Ghoul Bus book. I am not sure if its available internationally, but I hope so. I can't wait to see it in Barnes and Nobles...its going to be a huge milestone for me.

Lucky you! You can also always say that you use the rements for referencing when drawing haha

I really like your blog and your drawing style, I've been reading for a while now but finally decided to de-lurk and say hello :)

Oh my gosh! Those are so cool. I have recently admitted to a strange sort of soft spot I have for fake food. I think Re-ments might fit right in. Does sewing for kids work the same as illustrating? We have a lot of stuffed toys in our house. I'm going to use sewing for kids as my excuse. Yeah, that's it.

The only thing that would make this even more awesome would be if it lit up. I really need to look into this. Never seen anything like it.
