A peek inside the Chickenpants Bakery

**Here’s another post, saved from the Great Internet Reshuffle of ’15. I first published this post a few years back, when I still had the glorious Chickenpants Bakery set up. Sadly, the Chickenpants Bakery is no more. This post is ALL THAT REMAINS. And okay, yeah, all the parts remain, mostly in boxes and shuffled around to other parts of my home.

A Brand New Chickenpants Stop Motion Short!

I am so excited to be able to share this with you! For the first time in years, there’s a new Chickenpants stop motion! It’s called: The Care and Feeding of Chickenpants.

A Visit to the Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures in Tucson

Arizona is kind of a wonderland for miniatures. Who knew? I recently had the opportunity to visit said state, and extremely high on my list of places to visit was the Mini Time Machine Museum* of Miniatures in Tucson. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I definitely didn’t expect it to be as big and well funded as it was. The main room is kind of Disney-esque, with theatrical lighting and a huge tree full of mouse-themed room box {Read More}
