Let’s Bake! by Design Team Member Shannon Cooper!

Update! A newer post about Shannon’s artwork is here.

This is such a cute kitchen mini project! Shannon started with this month’s kit, plus a couple pieces of 1:12 furniture (and a ton of tiny things!) to make a scene with a very mid-century feel!

And… as there’s a new sale on the Baking Theme: most everything in Shannon’s project is on sale!

Back to today’s artwork: here’s an intro from Shannon’s blog post:

I know a lot of people have decided to pass the time in the kitchen baking cookies, pastries, cakes, and bread. My daughter has perfected the cheesecake with zero cracks. Truly amazing. Since I do not bake anymore, I did the next best thing — miniature “baking”!

The Tiny Retro Bakery Box Kit started me on this path, with its delightful kitchen themed buttons, new collage sheets, a tiny mixing bowl…ack! It is too much! So, naturally, I took that stuff along with some other bits and bobs and crammed it in a 7×7 Corner Room Box. Yay!

There’s a work table in the center that holds pots, pans, and bowls, plus all of the baking accoutrements on the top: kitchen blender (eeek, there’s a plug!), blue measuring cup (technically a coffee cup in a gorgeous retro color but a few swipes with a Sharpie turned it into a measuring cup), milk, muffin pan, rolling pin, cookie cutter, spatula, items from the kit, and a smattering of jars. Also a very cute mini cup of hot chocolate.

A bit of paint has been added to the cutting board before being hung on the wall. I think it adds a nice touch, plus I really like that button. The shank was snipped off the back so it lays flat. The same was done to all of the buttons used, but I have a second set to sew onto something later. 🙂

You can see the other buttons hung on the opposite wall alongside a spoon rack which I have been hoarding until the right moment. It belongs here.

The hutch in the back has tons of things on its shelves and inside the opening doors on the bottom, like a grater (another button!), honey jar, little lemon cakes, red canisters, more jars and containers, a rooster, and a canister for spoons and a whisk.

Great job, Shannon!! You can see more photos on Shannon’s blog post. And here’s her supply list. (Plus see below for more info on the related new sale!)
