Giveaway day #7 Petit Plat! (ends 10/22 @8:30pm PST)

AND THE WINNER IS COMMENT #17! CONGRATS TO MAGDA! CONTACT STEPHANIE TO REDEEM YOUR PRIZE!


Sorry for the delay but I promise it was worth the wait! :)

Stephanie from Petit Plat is SOOOOOOOO patient and so talented! When I first stumbled apon her etsy site I was so impressed! On her etsy site you can find miniatures (and ohhhh how i Looooveee miniatures!) and miniature food and dessert jewelery!!

I seriously am obsessed and no joke, the next order I get is going to pay for EXACTLY WHAT ONE OF YOU WILL WIN!!!

I cannot wait to get my own and here is your chance to win....



Your choice of her doughnut stud earrings!!!

Personally, I am going to buy her pink ones because, duh! I love pink! :)

Click HERE to see all the ones you can choose from!


1. How did you start your business and when?

I discovered my passion for miniatures in summer 2007, while I was searching for a new hobby because I was bored...

At the time I was still a student and didn't find a summer job so decided to go 7 weeks to my parents. Well after (only) 2 days I got terribly bored and googled like crazy for a new craft.
When I stumbled upon miniatures all my childhood ran back. Indeed as a child, I played a lot with Barbies and made some clay food out of regular sticky clay for them.

Somehow the passion grew bigger and bigger until it got my entire life. It was a struggle to finish my architecture degree but I knew I wanted to work as an artisan.

2. What is your favourite product or design to make for customers?

I don't really have a favorite product. I enjoy various things but periodically. Sometimes I have the urge to make donuts only and I get annoyed when people ask for cupcakes, sometimes in the other way round :)
I certainly do prefer sweet creations. Pizza, sushi and sandwiches are not my favorites to do. So they mostly are done on request and take ages for me to complete…
If you ask a custom pair of cupcake earrings it mostly is done within 2-3 days. But If you ask a pair of sandwich earrings you can wait 3 weeks :D

3. What would you do if someone gave you 1 million dollars to invest in your business?

Ooh. That's a LOT of money. I would buy a flat or house without a doubt. Right now our situation is a bit complicated and we live in furnished flats, moving pretty often.
As I work from home, moving often isn't wonderful for my creative process.

4. How are you gearing up for the holiday season?

Well I make sure I have enough supplies (earring posts, hooks, boxes, bubble letters) and enough stock. Whenever I only have 1 pair of a design left it goes straight on my table to remind me I have to do it again. And mostly I do (unless it's sushi, pizza or sandwiches huh!).

5. So like...how much do you love doughnuts?

I love them thaaaaaaaaat much :D But only in pictures. I never eat any donuts in real life. I think they're just too fat. Besides donuts aren't veer popular in France. But I love their shape and I love decorating them. It's so much fun to ice and decorate miniature donuts, I never get tired of doing it!


So i know what you're thinking...how do I win, Nicole?

Well let me tell you!

  20. I've been following PetitPlat on DeviantArt for a while now, I've had an obsession with food miniatures since childhood! I continually beg my boyfriend for various pieces but he's stingey and forgetful :P I think I have a soft spot for her fruit tarts- the miniature pieces of fruit are adorable, particularly the little bananas.
    Of the doughnuts I think the striped ones are cute!

  29. I have been a DeviantArt stalker of PetitPlats for a while. I am currently in LOVE with her gingerbread houses! So much so that I want to get them as gifts for people to give them holiday cheer all year round! They are the cutest little houses. I have to say, though, pretty much all her work is awesome. How can you really pick just one? My husband would freak if I purchased all the stuff of hers that I loved. ^_^
