Do baby photos tell the future???
Maybe, as Joanna was already crafting at a young age,
and Chris showed journalistic promise early.
Joanna Campbell Slan’s “Big Wave Dave’s Surf Shop” won an honorable mention in the 2016 Creatin’ Contest for miniatures. She is the national bestselling and award-winning author of more than 30 books, including the Cara Mia Delgatto Mystery Series that features a miniaturist as a character.
Joanna has written for Nutshell News and many other publications, including the Chicken Soup for the Soul books. She regularly posts pictures of her miniature adventures on her Facebook page, http://www.Facebook.com/JoannaCampbellSlan.

Christine Verstraete’s collection has since grown to more than 40 (well, probably way more, and counting) dollhouses, glass cases, shadowboxes, room boxes and vignettes all over her real life house. (Yes, in the bathroom, too.) Nor does she intend on stopping anytime soon (much to the hubby’s regret).
Chris is an award-winning journalist who’s had articles published in various newspapers and magazines, including Nutshell News and Dollhouse Miniatures. She’s also the author of In Miniature Style II, a book on miniatures with profiles and 40-plus how-to projects.
Her latest books include a young adult novel, GIRL Z: My Life as a Teenage Zombie, and the upcoming novel, Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter.
