October!

Hi there!

I took last week off from posting because it was my orientation week at the place I’ll be completing my practicum for my master’s in counseling. I learned so much, and I even got to shadow a couple days! All the information was a little overwhelming, but I’m ready to start working with clients!

I also got to do my first play therapy sessions last week, and those were amazing. I definitely made a couple mistakes here and there during them, but I think, overall, my sessions went well. What amazed me the most was how quickly they went by. I only have to have 30-minute sessions for my class, and I expected them to feel really slow, but before I knew it, I was giving the 5-minute warning. Kids really do just play, and it’s so rewarding to let them lead the relationship.

Anyway, onto miniatures! It’s October, which means Mushroom Meadow had to be decorated for autumn and Halloween! First, Mother Deer welcomed autumn in an outfit made of leaves.

Her husband, Father Deer, was a little shocked at her attire, but after 15 years of marriage, he’s learned to just go with Mother Deer’s unique fashion ideas. All the pumpkins in the picture above were made by me using polymer clay. I love making pumpkins. They’re so easy! I’ll have to post a tutorial sometime. Mother Deer also went to Mushroom Café to show off her new leaf outfit.

Next, the Red Pandas threw an autumn-themed tea party! The Red Pandas love their tea parties. Well, all the citizens of Mushroom Meadow love their tea parties.

I made all the food and the teapot and cups in the above picture as well. I’m in love with the cake I made. It turned out so pretty!

At the Fairytale House, Queen Maple just finished decorating the exterior.

Some of Queen Maple’s pumpkins are from CatzillasMinis on Etsy, and the rest were made by me. Queen Maple still has to decorate the inside of her house, but she’s been so busy lately! It’s a lot of work to be a queen. Maybe King Maple will have to do the decorating this year.

I’ll share more of Mushroom Meadow’s Halloween and autumn decorations in the next few posts. There’s so much to cover! Mushroom Meadow just adores this time of year, so a lot is going on!

Thank you for reading!
