Hello, my name is Adriane Wacker (pronounced Walker).

Welcome to For the Love of Small Things

A blog about Painting, DIY and 1:6 Scale Miniature Design.

A little bit about me…

I have always been creative. I love to draw and paint; It is something I have been doing since I was a young child.   My first big refinishing/painting project was done on my childhood dresser when I was 16 years old.  I also have always been really involved in making HO model railroad buildings with my dad.  He does the engineering of the trains, and I do the design and painting of the buildings!

I started For the Love of Small Things as a creative space where I could show off all my artistic endeavors.

Most recently, I discovered my passion for miniatures.  I have always loved small things, but I don’t think I ever thought about making miniatures until I became frustrated with my lack of time and money in the design of large things ( aka- my home).  I still love home design, but quickly became obsessed with miniature design. My motto: Why create big, when you can create small.
