The 2015 Miniature Events to come

You can feel it in the weather... Spring is coming! And with the new season, it's time for miniature events all around the globe!

I have updated the Events section of the blog, where you will be able to find all the dates of the 2015 contests worldwide (that I have knowledge of). Some contests that will likely take place this year, are still unknown (like Golden Demon 2015, as if we didn't expect that). But of course, if you can give me more information about contests that you know, please do! :D

Have you decided yet which ones you will attend?? ;)

Just this weekend we have Painting Crusade in Belgium! One of my favourites! I will not be able to go this year because it coincides with a wedding (its also that time of the year) but if you have the chance, I strongly recommend you to go. It's a wonderful experience!

But keep your eyes peeled because the week after here in Madrid we will celebrate the fifth edition of the Leganés contest! I will soon post about it because this year it is a bit especial for me. ;)

In the meantime, as I know some of you are a bit lazy to go and click on the Events section of the blog, let me share them here for your convenience. Enjoy!

I have been to NY events several times with my friends and family. We all loved to go to these events and spending good time there. You know, I have heard about miniature events. At last, I am going to attend this event. Thanks for providing event schedule.
